 ...NEW Stamps from Kim Dellow...

Hi Everyone, Leandra here with some amazing new stamps by {Kim Dellow}...

Tonight we have a lovely new stamp set from Kim Dellow which compliments perfectly her first 2 stamp sets designed earlier in the year. Let me show you those first, then introduce you to the new kid on the block.

These are the 2 we released in February

And here is their new sibling...EKD03

I'll hand over now to Kim who will introduce her new products, and share with you a few ideas. Enjoy and don't forget to leave us your comments!

Hey all, Kim Dellow here with my latest stamp release for PaperArtsy. For this little release I have come up with a set that matches the first two, good things come in threes, right?

In this new set there is another texture stamp, because I LOVE texture stamps. Some interesting flowers that some (Leandra!) might call retro, but I think I might go with vaguely alien. What do you think?

I've also included another little creature, a little lion this time. But slightly different for this set is a long pattern stamp that I am really excited to see all the different ways you think of to use!

Shall we get on with some samples then?

Project One: {Lion Shine Card}

My first sample tonight is a little greeting card. This is a very clean and simple make and if you have the time to do some masking you could easily make it a single layer card.

Step 1: 
I've used the texture stamp from the new set to stamp the rounded rectangle bubble background. I inked it up with Ranger Archival Chrome Yellow in the centre and Ranger Archival Viridian around the outside before stamping. 

Step 2: 
I then stamped the word with Ranger Archival Jet Black vertically next to the right-hand side of the rounded rectangle bubble background.

Step 3: 
The lion was stamped and then coloured with PrismaColor pencils then I cut him out and stuck him to the card with 3D foam.

Project Two: {All Awash Card}

For project two I thought I would play with a resist and the PaperArtsy Infusions to add the colour.

Step 1: 
I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the long pattern stamp along the left-had side of the card front.

Step 2:
I placed a couple of drops of the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint Drying Retarder on a plastic surface and sprinkled a very small amount of the Royal Blood Infusions into the drops. I repeated this process to make another wash of the Golden Sands Infusions.

You can use water to make the infusions wash instead but I found the Drying Retarder slowed the brown of the Walnut crystals coming through so that you have more time to work with the colour for the wash.

Step 3: 
I then used the two pools of colour like a watercolour wash, first adding the Royal Blood over the embossed image with a brush. Then adding a couple of dabs of the Golden sands before the blue wash was dry and letting it drip and move through the blue wash.

You get a whole range of colours with these infusion washes, the blue of the Royal Blood mixing green with the Golden Sands, but also you can see some of the yellow of the Golden Sands peeking through. Then of course you have the intense brown of the walnut crystals adding a vintage feel to the overall effect.

Project Three: {Shine Tag}

For my last sample I've made a tag and built up a bit of dimension using the heart circle stamp and one of the alien flower stalks on a gesso resist background.

Step 1: 
For this tag I started by stamping the texture stamp with gesso and once dry I then made a wash with Fresco Finish paints and the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint Drying Retarder to colour the background. I used Teresa Green, Granny Smith and Blueberry.

Step 2: 
I then stamped the flower stem in paint on a paint wash background. I also did the same with the round stamp, first stamping with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink on a Cheesecake covered cardstock then with Coral paint on a Bubble gum covered cardstock.

Step 3: 
To finish I cut out each element and built it up on the flower stamped in paint on the background and added the sentiment stamped with the Jet Black ink on Cheesecake covered cardstock. The final touches where added with a pen.


Here is a video for you by Kim with her new stamps showing how she made the final tag...

I am really looking forward to seeing what you make with these new stamps, don't forget to let me know as I have a Pinterest board dedicated to sharing the amazing ideas that people come up with using the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Stamps and I would just LOVE to see your work included there too!

If you want to get your work, using my stamps, up on this board then you can get in touch with me via any of the links below:


Ohhhhh, it's lovely to see such fantastic ideas from Kim with these new images I'm sure you'll agree. Retailers have been stocking up on these ready for tonight, so take a look below to see who is on the ball and has got in early to order!

We do encourage you to buy from your favourite PaperArtsy stockist, as you know,  if you support your local independent retailer you will get quality advice, product education, and a wide range of choice from many small craft brands (like us) who do not deal with chains.

Oh and if you get your hands on these, you might like to use them in the current blog challenge: Colour Mixing which closes 7pm Sunday, August  7th!

I'll be back next week for another release!!
