Paperbabe Stamps May Release - Day two introductions

Hi everyone, I'm back today with the second part of the Paperbabe Stamps may release and today we're introducing the DesignA Adorimal stamps with some t-shirt shape templates as well. This is a large A4 stamp set with every combination of animal you can think of so one of those sets that will go on forever as there are so many different combinations, Kim has great ideas for original stamps and I'm sure these ones will be very popular.

I've gone for a clean and simple style today with plain white cards, envelope and tag paired with MFT stitched edge rectangle and tag dies. My first cutie is paper pieced, I've stamped the ribbed background stamp in blue ink then the Adorimal body and head stamps over the top. I've cut out the shape in the centre of the head, then applied the cut out to a white card die cut before stamping the face with Kawaii face stamps into the white space. I finished off with a sentiment from the just because set

I love this cute Mr. fox and I've stamped him in brown and orange Luxe inks, inking first with the orange and sponging some brown around the edges of the shapes for definition. I created texture on the face by sponging a little light brown ink and then adding strokes of white pen over it. I The sentiment is from the Tree Hugs set.

I still have my toy panda bear from when I was a baby and my youngest Son still has his too so it was lovely to make a panda bear Adorimal for the card in one of the possible poses and for the envelope in another. It's a very small card so I made the envelope on a punch board. The sentiment is from the Just Because set.

Finally I used one of the t-shirt templates over stamped with the Ribbed background stamp then I stamped a wacky Adorimal over the top...this one I imagine to be singing along to whatever is coming through the earphones I created for her [may be you had to be there when I was stamping :-D.]

On the card base I stamped with the heart strip from Happy Thoughts and Gelatos and the sentiment is from Just Because.

Thanks for staying with me to the end of this post, I appreciate it! The May release will be available to purchase from the Paperbabe Stamps shop tomorrow and today there's more inspiration from Kim on the Paperbabe Stamps blog and links to the gorgeous creations of my team mates.
