Each month I teach an Art Journaling Class and the Art by Marlene stamps and products has quickly become a firm favorite in these classes. This month we used the beautiful crab stamp – and it was a huge hit with everyone!

There is no denying that I love mixing up paper ranges together for
added interest. I love a good range, but if I can combine all that
gorgeous goodness together using bits and pieces then I am as happy as
Today on the blog I am sharing a quick canvas project I made using this vintage Bicycle stamp from the Gentleman’s Emporium Collection and some flower elements from the Le Petit Jardin range.

I love mixing and matching different paper ranges – for me there is something special about being able to make them work together and look amazing. For this card I combined Butterfly Garden and Gentleman’s Emporium together and it looks awesome.
I had some time to create with the Gentleman’s Emporium so more and made this single page layout. It turned out even better than what I had imagined. I often find it hard to work with browns and greens, but somehow this range with its pretty softer shades was so much better for me personally. And add some bling and you have a winning combination.
One of my favourite techniques is simply plain inking a background,
and admittedly with all the amazing products and must-haves on the
market it is one of the things we do less and less. It was time to dust
off the amazing little inks and make some magic with blending
Welcome to today’s blog post with me Jowilna. I finally got my hands on the New Gentleman’s Emporium Range and I love it. I made some quick cards with foiled details, and let me just say that the foiling makes these cards shine even brighter.
I used my patterned papers as a base for my cards, and if you get hold
of the 6×6″ paper pads they are simply perfect for making cards – no
waste, no mess, no fuss.
For the sentiment on this card I cut a strip of the patterned paper and
raise it using foam tape. A few pearls dresses up the card.
For my second card I used some elements from the Collection pack layered
on top of a foiled frame. Note how I dropped the frame off the edge of
the card for a fun look.
I repeated my use of pearls as embellishments and a few ink splats.
How gorgeous is the new stamp set from Little Birdie? I simply had
to colour the images as soon as I got hold of it. It calls for creating a
stained-glass window card, but in the meantime, a good colouring
session with some of my favourite watercolour markers did the trick.
