NEW PaperArtsy Products {Zinski Art} Jan 2018

NEW {Zinski Art} Collection Jan 2018
It's always a joy to share some more Zinski stamps with you all, and Elena has a veritable menagerie of people, sheeple, and many other wholly endearing pets and creatures! She weaves her magical stories about them below, so take your time, and enjoy!

Hi everyone, Elena here to show you my newest stamps designed for PaperArtsy along with some ideas.
I don't know about you, but for some reason I get all 'nesty' and 'domestic goddess-esque' after Christmas and New Year (trust me this does not last long!). But while it lasts,  I want to bake more and make things pretty and become all 'let's-swap-recipes-and-knitting-patterns' organised, think folders, book covers and recipe cards and imagine the ice-cream, candy floss colours of the 50's. Roll all those thoughts together, and that's where my muse led me while creating art to share with you here.

Today there are 3 blog posts to enjoy, from myself, Corrie Herriman of and Christine Dark of Both so talented and whose work I admire. How lucky am I to have them both on board the Zinski train. You can see their  work with these same products today too. Our blog posts will publish within 30 mins of each other.

Let's start with some ideas with each of the new stamps I have created for your enjoyment.

Zinski Art Set 20 (ZA20)

A bunch of BFF's ZA20

This first sample is for all those lucky people who don't just have one BFF (best friend forever), but 2 or three or 4, or...yes you know where this is going.

Ok, so without being biased, and at the danger of this sounding like an infomercial, if I was going to have a range of stamps PaperArtsy was definitely the way to go. No I am not the stamp police disguised as a Zinski person, but the fact they're bendy-soft and deeply etched, is that the word? Well, they're so easy to stamp with especially for a stamping newbie like me.... I think I may possibly becoming addicted.

Zinski Art Set 21 (ZA21)

 For the love of jumpers ZA21

These jumpy sheep are just big lovable balls of fluffy candy floss puffs. Try saying that after a few swigs of the cooking sherry! I'm tempted to put them in ice cream cones and cover them in sprinkles. Instead, I thought, hmm, what if I could knit? Which I can't ... but my best friend Tina can! So, with a backdrop of wool creating a pastel rainbow bed, the sheep can lie comfortably on top, wearing their own cosy jumpers - making the perfect folder cover where Tina's knitting patterns can be stored. 

...and how perfect would they be for a mobile hanging from knitting needles? No no, this mobile is not for babies; it's for that insomniac friend most of us know...for those nights where trying to sleep is exhausting, and counting sheep is the only way forward! Of course, for their spindly arms and legs, one would use strands of wool so cutting them out wouldn't be fussy.

Zinski Art Set 22 (ZA22)

What's better than a cake? Two cakes! ZA22

Well I did warn you about the recipe card swap, and so here is the easiest recipe to start with. Yes, I used the Chicken from a previous set, but when one donates the eggs, the least one can do is give them a little credit! 

Tilly the baker loves cakes so much, her chef's hat is made from butter cream with a cherry on top! So, we may just have to borrow that for finishing touches on other baked goodies.

No baking powder needed for this recipe. I thought I'd try using the stamps plain on a bright background to make the flour the star of the show, a little different for me as I normally like colour on top of colour until black and white is a distant memory, but I think this works, the images do 'pop' with the contrast.

Zinski Art Set 22 (ZA23)

Mum's Recipes

Back to the future ZA23

Here it is, the bubblegum 50's but not too retro, a merging of era's if you will. This one made me order a wood burning tool immediately, how cool would it be to stamp on a piece of wood, burn image and paint?! Yep, I'm going to try that. Love this cake because it can be one tall one or stamped and cut into two or three cakes. But just look how proud Oscar the chef is. What would we do without cakes? They fit into any celebration or cheering up days.

Zinski Minis (Zinis)
Elena has also created another 16 Zinis! These are fabulous little credit card sized stamps. And they made useful additions to your large stamp sets! Let's take a look at them! You can see they fit into subsets of little Zini buddies.

That Zini Zoo moment has arrived. I present to you Zini17 (ZN17) - Zini32 (ZN32)

And just when you think crafty playtime is over this happens...

Oh for goodness sake those Zini's get everywhere. Just as I'm about to close the studio door I hear one calling out 'what about me?' ...and so another stamping fest begins! 

Thank you for joining me here today and don't forget to tune in for Corrie's and Christine's blogs straight after mine. Wishing you all a bright and fun 2018, and huge thank you's for your incredible creations and ideas that you've shared on social media which bowl me over each and every time! 

Keep on stamping just the way you do. Big loves and happy's :) x
