Hello everyone! And we are back!!! Following Elaine's move, we are happy to announce normal service has resumed at Quixotic Paperie! And as a belated birthday celebration for the store's fifth anniversary and to thank you for your continued custom and support, Quixotic Paperie are offering 20% off EVERYTHING in stock until midnight on Monday 4th August!

So let's share some inspiration today, summery inspiration, with some of the stamps available in the store! I love mermaids, and the new The Greeting Farm Magical Beans Kit including one, I had to use it - combining her with my favourite Make It Crafty background for mermaids ;) Here is today's little scene...

I stamped my Greeting Farm mermaid onto Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured her in Copics and cut her out. On another piece of Make It Colour Blending Card, I stamped Sandy Seafloor by Make It Crafty, masked it and airbrushed the sea. I then coloured the seafloor, added a sentiment from the Tiddly Inks Floating By Set, as well as two fishes, and put my little mermaid on foam squares. Here is a close up and some of the colours I used...

Believe in magic...

Hello everyone! Today's post is about a garden with a bit of magic in it, some Copics and acrylic paint!

This cutie is from the new The Greeting Farm Magical Beans Kit. I LOVE this kit!! All the Beans are so cute, and there are TEN of them! I stamped this one in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured her in Copics and cut her out. The background was made using acrylic paint on watercolour paper. The flowers are from the Tiddly Inks Harmony At Home Set, I stamped them on a piece of watercolour paper, coloured them in acrylics too and glued them to my background. The branches were made with a stencil. And for a nice finishing touch, I added 2 Make It Crafty Mini Dragonflies and a Mini Butterfly chipboard too.

Special offers and New Make It Crafty stamps!

Hello everyone! Have you seen all the special offers at the store, valid until tonight? And what about all the Make It Crafty stamps that have just been released? Lots of rubber happiness, with new characters and new backgrounds and even an exclusive stamp at Quixotic Paperie! I picked the super cute Sarah today, she is already one of my favourites for birthday cards!

One of the joys of rubber stamps is that you can stamp on absolutely any paper you want, so I went for a very dark blue card. I stamped Sarah in Versafine Onyx Black and coloured her with my Polychromos. I only added two little swirls in two corners, stamped with white ink. Very simple! 

You still have time to take advantage of all the special offers valid until tonight - 30% off Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, 10% off The Greeting Farm, Some Odd Girl, SCACD and Make It Crafty including the new stamps! Enjoy! 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely day! Hugs,

A Make It Crafty Garden and an Anya!

Hello everyone! It's hot and the sun is shining here, so time for "summery spring" inspiration! I have combined some of my favourite Make It Crafty background stamps with an Anya by The Greeting Farm for a little scene in Copics...

I used Spring Branch by Make It Crafty - available as a single stamp or as part of the Spring Garden Collection stamp set - and Make It Crafty Garden Fence. I coloured my background with Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card, and on another piece of card, I stamped an Anya by The Greeting Farm, from the Miss Anya Summer set which includes three adorable Anyas. I cut her out and put her on foam squares. I added a sentiment and a Make It Crafty Mini Butterfly Chipboard colored in acrylic paint.

Up Up Bean - and Quixotic Paperie sponsoring

Hello everyone! I am sharing a little card, very little card indeed featuring one of the latest The Greeting Farm stamp available from the store - and to let you know Quixotic Paperie is sponsoring the current Girly Birthdays challenge at Without Words! So if you would like to win a gift voucher to the store, now is the chance! 

My little inspiration card to day is an ATC put on a card blank - I like tiny cuteness! 

I stamped the adorable Up Up Bean by The Greeting Farm on an ATC and coloured her with my Polychromos except for the balloons which were coloured with acrylic paint. For the background, I used Neocolor II. Around the image I added white ink with a texture stamp then rubbed a purple Neocolor II on the borders of the ATC. Then I painted the letters HB2U in acrylic paint and pasted them on the ATC. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely evening/day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
