NEW PaperArtsy Products {Zinski Art} with Corrie Herriman

NEW {Zinski Art} Collection Jan 2018

Wow, so many stamps to see, and lots of ideas for you to digest - you'd better get pinning! In this post Corrie is here to share plenty of bright and beautiful (and funny) ideas. Elena's stamps are infectious the humour is sure to make you smile. ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Corrie from MadeByCHook here. Today I am here to show you some ideas with Elena's new stamps (elenazinksi Art) designed for PaperArtsy.

This particular new release is fantastic and Elena has really outdone herself this time. The images and sentiments are perfect for numerous uses like cards, art journals, ATC's, tags. They are fantastic to colour, not too difficult to cut out and look great on any project. I was inspired by the set with the sheep; this is my absolute favourite and I have had so much fun using it. I hope you'll have as much fun with them as I had. 

Let's start with some ideas with the new products.

Zinski Art Set 20 (ZA20)

Happy Canvas using  ZA20 (clouds and hearts), ZA21 (sheep), ZA23 (the word Happy)
I like to mix and match stamp sets and that is exactly what I did for this little canvas. These sheep, especially, the expression on their faces really crack me up. They are so fun and the sentiments that come with them are fantastic. But for this canvas I used 3 different sets and swapped things about a bit. 

I chose to use the word happy because I think he looks particularly happy floating in between the clouds. 

I have made another sample with one of the other sheep. It is below the next stamp. I chose to use only a part of him on some twinchies.

Zinski Art Set 21 (ZA21)

Sheeple Twinchies using ZA21

This set of 4 Twinchies is fabulous fun I think ! As I said the expressions on their faces is fantastic and in this case a sentiment is not needed because it looks great as it is.  These would work great on ATC's and tags too ! 

Zinski Art Set 22 (ZA22)

Iced Cake using ZA22

I really like making new sentiments by using different stamps or, like in this tag, use part of a sentiment. The whole text is "you are... the icing on the cake and the cherry on the top" Because the image itself takes up quite a bit of room I only used part of the sentiment and it works great I think.

I love these baking inspired stamps, probably because of 'The Great British Bake-Off'. Even here in Holland we have a similar program ! I like eating cake more than baking though !

Zinski Art Set 23 (ZA23)

The Potty Chef using ZA23

I love making tags and this one was fun ! I think the look on her face is great and the sentiment is so fitting. I can see this working as a stamp for a birthday card too. 

I used my favourite colouring mediums; Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics for the background and Copic Markers for the image. I'd love to use these stamps with watercolours some time too. And as always the stamps are fantastic quality and stamp like a dream !

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.

Here are the stamps: Zini17 (ZN17) - Zini32 (ZN32)

Loving Birds using ZN25, ZN32 and ZA20 (sentiment)
This tag was fun to make. I used a gel printing plate and Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics to make the background. The pattern you see was made with a mask (PM008).

The little birds were stamped on the tag but also on separate card stock and coloured. I cut them out and glued them on the image on the tag. This way you can cut off really small bits like hairs and still have a perfect image when glued down. Neat little trick ! These small images are perfect for ATC's and cards too ! 

For my last sample I have made two ATC's, again using two of the minis and a sentiment that I have made from words from two big sets.

Crazy Dogs using ZN19 and ZN20. Sentiment from ZA20 and ZA23
These ATC's were fun to make. I used Infusions for the background. This is quite a difficult medium for me as I am a bit of a control freak and the effect of the Infusions is very unpredictable. I do like to be taken out of my comfort zone though sometimes.

I had the idea to colour the images and I did but when I finished I thought it was way too busy for the background. 

So I stamped them on gessoed book paper and I think it looks really cool. I did use a black coloured pencil to add some shading here and there.

I have really enjoyed making samples with these fabulous new stamps and I am looking forward to using them again and again ! Thank you for this opportunity Leandra and Elena !
