PaperArtsy launch night !

Tonight is very exciting as it's the launch night of Lin Brown's new stamps and paints for PaperArtsy! I shared a sneak peek here but tonight I can share lots more ! These are the brand new stamp sets and there's a limited edition set of Frescos too !

So, onto my projects .......

I made a master sheet from Smoothy card that I first painted with Hint of Mint and then using masking tape created a checked design. I brayered over the top with Plum and Evergreen Fresco Finish paint. I cut a piece from this sheet to make the background of my card.

I stamped the branch over the top corner using the stamp from the ELB10 set using Evergreen Fresco Finish paint.
The tree from the ELB 10 set has been stamped with black Archival ink and clear embossed onto a small piece of card from the master sheet, cut into a tag shape and I’ve ripped the bottom edge at an angle. This is mounted on card that has been painted with Evergreen Fresco Finish. The word Noel has also been stamped and clear embossed then I’ve painted it using Plum Fresco Finish.

I stamped a border using the stamp from the ELB 12 set and mounted it onto some masking tape used to make the master sheet. The small tree is made using shrink plastic and the stamp from the ELB10 set. I’ve added some lace and buttons to finish. 

I cut a tag from Smoothy Heavy card and painted it with Evergreen Fresco Finish paint, dried it off and then added a layer of Crackle Glaze. Once this was dry a top layer of Hint of Mint Fresco Finish was painted over it. I stamped the holly from the ELB 10 stamp set using Evergreen Fresco Finish paint. 

The panel was cut from cardboard and I used Grunge Paste with the Lin Brown 001 stencil. I then painted it with Evergreen Fresco Finish paint and when dry, rubbed some Renaissance Treasure Gold over the top. The sentiment is stamped on to a piece of fabric that I’ve painted with Evergreen, then added a layer of Crackle Glaze and a top coat of Hint of Mint Fresco Finish. The bow is made from seam binding that I’ve painted with Plum Fresco Finish. I added a border of masking tape which I created a check design on and on top of that card that’s been stamped with the little tree from the ELB10 set.

I painted the chunky board with Hint of Mint Fresco Finish. I then stamped the border of trees using Evergreen Fresco Finish onto some tissue paper. I painted over the back with more Hint of Mint Fresco Finish and stuck the border to the board. I stamped the snowflakes from the ELB 10 set with Marlin Fresco Finish and when dry, I washed over them using watered down Hint of Mint.  I mixed some Marlin Fresco Finish with Grunge Paste and added some dots using the Lin Brown 001 stencil. 

The panel is made from cardboard and wooden coffee stirrers to make the frame. I painted it with Hint of Mint, then spread some Crackle Glaze over it and when dry, a coat of Evergreen Fresco Finish. I rubbed a little White Fire Treasure Gold around the edge. The sentiment is from the ELB12 stamp set and is stamped onto Smoothy card and I’ve sponged a little Evergreen Fresco Finish around the edge.  I then painted some Crunchy Paper with Evergreen and Plum Fresco Finish and die cut several flowers using the Scallop Flower die and layered them up, using a painted brad to hold everything together. The metal embellishment has been painted with Hint of Mint Fresco Finish and lightly brushed with White Fire Treasure Gold. 

All of the new release products are now available from your favourite PaperArtsy retailer.
