NEW from PaperArtsy {Eclectica³ Emma Godfrey} February 2017

Eclectica³ Emma Godfrey

Continuing with her penchant for bold quotes, and simple elements, Emma has added another 3 sets to her collection, and as you can see, these have a lovely summer vibe.

Let's take a look at the stamps first, then we have another surprise!

In addition to the stamps, for you this year, Emma has created some mini stencils. These diddly little darlings are totally adorable, and I can see I'll be using them all on a gelli print for easy contrast. Take a look for yourself, you can see they fit perfectly with past and current stamp sets too.


Here's a video with plenty of inspiration and explanation!

Emma's wingmen and Emma have all been super-busy during the design and create phase of these stamps, and boy have they done so well to share amazing samples with us.  

Congratulations to you all!

~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Emma Godfrey here to show you my newest stamps designed for PaperArtsy.

As Leandra pointed out above, these three sets continue with my current line of stamps. This time they are themed around a flower (which looks fab layered up), some black & white striped circles and dragonflies. Again, I've also chosen some of favourite words and sayings to use in art journaling. I love versatility, so I wanted you to be able to interchange them with my other sets, but they can also work really well with some of the PaperArtsy designers stamps. And I'm particulary excited about the mini masks!

Tonight I invited the super talented Claire Snowdon and Sue Carrington to help me make samples with these new stamps and masks. Please go and check out their blogs where you will find more detailed information about these stunning samples and the techniques they used to create them. They'll be well worth a visit!

Let's start with Claire Snowdon I love the projects that Claire makes - she has a great sense of colour and layout, and is always up for trying something new - perfect wingman qualities! She's made some fabulous pieces...

'Everything' using EEG22 by Claire Snowdon

I love how bold the flowers on this stamp set are, it makes them really versatile and so easy to create amazing layers and dimension with.

The quotes on this stamp plate are going to be perfect for both art journalling and making cards - I love the quote I've chosen to use on my tag.

'Why Not' using EEG23 by Claire Snowdon

I love all the wonderfully positive quotes on this stamp set along with the circle elements which are so useful both as background elements but also focal points.

'Beautiful' using EEG24 by Claire Snowdon

I genuinely couldn't get enough of this stamp set - I just love to add butterflies and dragonflies to my work.  They always add a bit of magic to a project in my mind especially when you throw in a little bit of glitter too ;) 

There are some beautiful smaller stamps in this set which were ideal for adding interest and depth to the background.

Next up we have Sue Carrington.  Sue creates beautiful art journal pages and projects with lots of texture.  I was intrigued to see what she would create with my stamps and masks ... and she did me proud with these stunning pieces...

'Beauty' using EEG22 by Sue Carrington

I had so much fun with this sample not only because the stamps are so full of possibilities but also the colour palette that was part of the brief. The large flowers are perfect for stamping onto brayered backgrounds, like I've done here, cutting out and layering and the journalling ideas are whizzing round my brain too.

I love the smaller stamps too which are ideal for adding that extra little touch to backgrounds, masterboards and journalling too. I love layering so couple these stamps and the mini stencils and I'm in heaven!

'Brave Wings' using EEG24 by Sue Carrington

Who doesn't love dragonflies and having 2 different sizes is just brilliant ! I love that these can be stamped and then painted and stamping onto book text or dictionary paper would be fabulous too.

The sentiments on all the sets are are going to pop up on lots of my journaling pages and as the words are beautifully spaced they're easy to cut out so they can be used separately.

So now it's time to show you what I've made with these new stamps and masks...

The first thing I want to tell you is that I cut up the circles on EEG23 separately so that I could use them individually. It was really easy to do (especially with my Tim Holtz scissors - just be careful you don't stab yourself with them!).  I just poked a hole in the spaces between the circles and started cutting - you don't need to trim them too closely - just enough so that they nest back inside each other when you put them back on the index sheet.

My first project is an art journal background...

'A Beautiful Thing...' using EEG22, EEG23 & EEG24 by Emma Godfrey

Step One: I created a scraped paint background on a piece of Heavy Smoothy using an old credit card/splodger. I mixed the Fresco Finish paints with some Metallic Glaze so that the background had a bit of sparkle. To add some more interest I stamped the circles and small butterfly randomly.

Step Two: On a separate piece of paper I sprinkled Infusions and spritzed them with water. I dabbed off a lot of the colour with kitchen towel whilst they were still wet, as I wanted soft colours. Once dry, the large flower was then stamped, and the flowers were cut out. I added a little bit of detail to the edges of the flowers with a white extra-fine Sharpie paint pen, and some glitter to the centres.

Step Three: I stamped the circles, small flowers and quote onto more Heavy Smoothy cardstock, and cut them out. The small flowers were then overstamped with MN23, and they too got a glittery centre.

Step Four:  I arranged everything on my background and glued it all down. To finish I outlined the quote with a black pen, and added some dots with the white pen over the background.

"Hanging Heart" using EEG22, EEG23 & EEG24 by Emma Godfrey

In this project I decorated a small wooden heart...

Step One: I painted the heart with a couple of colours of Fresco Finish. When it was dry, I stamped the tiny flower and splodgy stamp with Archival Jet Black ink, and the butterfly using Snowflake Fresco Finish. I coloured in the flower with Bubblegum Fresco Finish using a very fine paintbrush.

Step Two: I stamped the large dragonfly onto translucent Shrink Plastic and cut it out. I added some more stamping in a contrasting colour, some white dots and coloured in the body. I then shrunk it with a heat gun.

Step Three: Back to the heart, I stamped and embossed the circle stamp with gold embossing powder - it is a rough surface, so I wasn't worried about it being perfect. To add a bit more bling, I highlighted some areas with Brass Treasure Gold. The white dots with Ranger Enamel Accents help to lighten it up a bit. To finish it just needed the dragonfly glued on and some co-ordinating ribbon threaded through the hanging hole.

Cards & ATC's using the mini masks and
stamp sets EEG22, EEG23 & EEG24 by Emma Godfrey

I also created a number of cards and ATC's using my mini masks for the backgrounds and decorated using my new stamps.

These ATC's were all created on Heavy Smoothy card using Distress Inks and some infusions. Add a little bit of stamping, some doodling and a quote, and they become mini works of art.

The next few cards and mini pieces all started with some mono-printed backgrounds. The mini masks are perfect for using with your Gelli Plates - especially the smaller ones!

I created a couple of sheets with various prints, and then cut them up...

So there you go ... didn't my wingmen do a brilliant job? I hope that they, and I, have inspired you to try out these new masks and stamps. I for one, can't wait to see what you'll create ... and if you decide to post a project on social media, don't forget to tag me so that I can see it.

Emma has been flat out teaching in shops this year, and it's easy to see why! She uses her stamps with paints and other products to create such gorgeous vibrant samples. What's not to like about that! 

All tonight's wing-men have detailed step out's explaining how they made their samples on their own blogs tonight, so do drop by and take a look by following the links: Claire, Sue, Emma. Leave Emma some love below too please!

Congratulations Em, another beautiful release!
