Sneak Peek of Paper Makeup Stamps!

>> Sunday, January 11, 2009

I cant believe it was last thursday that i posted last? Where does the time go??? Well, i'll have you know i've been hard at work finalizing a few things getting closer and closer to the Grand Opening of Paper Makeup Stamps! I'm sure as you might guess there is a lot that goes in the Behind-the-Scenes action of a stamp company.

Ok, without much further ado... i want to introduce Diem's Faeries! Ok, so they may not be called that in the long run, but i am working with a FABULOUS illustrator on these faeries. She seriously rocks. And to have someone who gets me so well (even though i dont know how she is completely in my head) is awesome. There will be 4 Faerie's released in the grand opening with more to come. I really think you will love them. I can gush over them because it isnt my artwork this time. (i'm always so critical of my own!)

Here's "Jaina Fairy". I call her Jaina Fairy because she looks like one of Jack's little friends (and his first "love") Jaina. Isnt she adorable!!!

I actually made this card for my illustrator to thank her for her hard work and helping me to make my dream come true! You cant see it in the picture but she is just covered with teeny tiny sparkles ala spica pens. I also added some extra stickles to her wings to make them super duper sparkly.

I used Jen del Muro's "Sketch for you to try" from this week for my layout inspiration. Here's a bit more on the deets...

Cardstock: Groovy Guava (SU), Soft Sky (SU), Aqua Mist (PTI), Chocolate Chip (SU)
White Paper: Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper: Designer Print Series (SU)
The little details...
Colored with: Copics
Cuddlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Bling - Darice
Ribbon - Michael's
Flowers - Prima
Brad - sugar coated by Doodlebug
Swirl cut from Home Accents by Cricut
Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
Stickles in Cinnamon, Waterfall
Charm from Whimsy Stamps (they sent it as a gift with my order!)
Cat's Eye Chalk ink - Prussian Blue, Chestnut Roan

Since this is the first peek of the fairy stamp line - i would love to hear your feedback!!!! Leave your comment here and i will choose 1 person at random to win this stamp for free!
