New stamp sets at PaperArtsy

I am really pleased to be one of the designers at PaperArtsy tonight with samples for the new Hot Picks stamps being released.

I chose two sets of background stamps to work with and had great fun making these.



This is a 5 x 7 card with a multi layered mixed media background using the stamps between layers of Fresco Finish paints, die-cuts and grunge paste to create depth and dimension. Just a small collage on the top so the stamps can still be seen.


Another 5 x 7 card and again with several FF paint layers but not with the texture the previous one has. I also used the stamps on the mini tag and framework die-cut.


A size 8 tag with clear embossed text stamp, layers of Fresco Finish paints and then bolder stamps to provide a collage background for the added washi tape, framed photo and  a couple of embellishments.


Thanks Leandra for asking me to take part, I loved using the new stamps with the painty layers. I'm looking forward to seeing what other people have made as well and watching Leandra's video. So pop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see what's happening.

Hello Brenda,
I am loving your samples for these new plates from PA.
The texture you have obtained to enhance the Bg stamps are a real eye catcher for me, combining the elements with the designs is the key and you have it in spades. Fabulous creations.
Smiles:)

I love what you did with these stamps Brenda! Combined with your amazing backgrounds (I truly adore the "begin an Adventure" background!!!), these stamps really add to the vintage feel of these pieces. Love the layered die cuts and paper in the 2nd piece and the layers of washi tape in the 3rd. You've illustrated how wonderfully the PA stamps can be integrated into our art. Truly inspired. What a way to debut these stamps!! Hugs -- Mary Elizabeth
