Paper Makeup Stamps Sneak Peeks day 1 - January!

>> Monday, January 11, 2010

Oh finally!!!! I felt like this day would never get here! Sneak Peek time for Paper Makeup Stamps! Pushing the release date back for January gave all the new design team members a little bit of time to get in the swing of things, plus made some down time after the holidays, but it just seemed like forever! Usually i'm thinking, what?! It's time for sneak peeks already?! Didnt we just HAVE a release! haha! This time, i was beyond ready to dive into these fun lovey dovey stamps!

Ok, confession... i have way more fun created valentine's cards than christmas cards! it's true! I do! Maybe it's my obession with red and sometimes pink. Maybe it's the love of hearts. Maybe it's because i feel like you can use valentine's day images all year. Maybe it's because by the time valentine's day rolls around i'm so tired of all things christmas crafting that it's my very welcomed change? Well, whatever it is... i love it!

My card for you today uses the Beautiful Day Fairy, Rose! I love her. Doesnt she look like she's in such bliss! The nice thing about her is she truly can be used for more than just valentine's day!

Here's my card...

I guess i was in a bit of a vintage feel! I knew i wanted to color her a little differently than i traditionally do, so i used all brown tones to create a sepia effect. Most colors were from the copic E3_ family. Follow down to the end of the post for a more detailed listing.

I used my rectangle nestabilities and embossed the image right in the nestie. Then i used Distress Inks (i know, GASP, i didnt use the airbrush) to dirty up my edges. I mostly used Tea Dye color with the exception of using Walnut Stain on my brown cardstock which is barely visible! haha! I also used the Tea Dye ink on the patterned paper (by Martha Stewart). The paper was very pretty but the white and brown really popped and i needed it a little more subdued. So the edges where sponged in a tad.

I also wanted to give a little shout out to Melissa Craig and her Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge blog. This past week, Paper Makeup Stamps has been the sponsor. Melissa worked up a fabulous sketch and i just hadnt had the time to play with it yet. Well, since today is monday and not tuesday, there was still a little time to squeak in there with a card! There is still time for you to get in on the action to, so go check it out!

Ok, here are some detail shots...

Here's just a close up of Rose. See the sentiment there in the corner? Thats from a new set called Hugs & Kisses that is also being released on the 14th. :)

This is just a fun shot. I layered some various styles of Prima flowers and secured them with a bazzill bling brad. You cant see the shimmer of the brad in the picture, but it's there. :)

You know i always try to capture the sparkle! I love my Atyou Spica pens! Here you can see the chocolate spica pen along her hem line. She also has clear spica pen in her wings and her hair. The camera didn't capture that as well, but you can see it in real life and it's so pretty!

Dont forget to check out the PMS blog for more gooooooorgeous creations from the design team! There is a chance to win the entire release plus info on how to win a stamp of your choice!

Mark your calendars, the release date is January 14th! Party will be at 8pm CST in the forum which is when all the stamps will go live on the site!
