Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop with a My Time Made Easy template!

>> Thursday, January 14, 2010

Ok, that blog post couldnt be longer if i wanted it to be!

Today is THE day! The day of the January release of Paper Makeup Stamps!
And with every release day, the Makeup Artists bring you a blog hop!
Now if you are just a follower of my blog, you'll need to start from the beginning.
Go to the PMS Blog to start your hop and to learn about getting your CODE for a 15% discount off the new releases!

If you've been hoping along from the get go, then you should have arrived from Amber's blog.

And before i forget, because i've done it before...

My letter for you is...

I am *in love* with this release! Truly, i am! I know i'm in love with every release, but i really do love this one quite a bit! haha!

For my hop card, i'm showing you Moody in Love, designed by Cynthia Liu.
This moody is so sweet and not quite as detailed as some of the other moody girls. If you love the moody's but have been afraid to try them out, here's a great one to start with!

I decided to pair my Moody Girl with a template called Cutesy Cover from My Time Made Easy.
And you're not going to believe this, but this template is FREE! Thats right, it's a freebie curteosy of MTME's owner (and my friend!) Lauren Meader. This template is a great way to test out one of the MTME templates and see how they work! Even better if you have a cutting program (like sure cuts a lot) so you can see how the MTME templates work with your cutter.
If you dont have a cutter, this template of course is still available as a PDF file as well.

Here's a close up shot of Ms Moody.... details of copics used will follow below :)

I love all the hearts nestled within her hair! And i can almost see the wind of love blowing over her!

For the hexagon shape, I used the geometric shape custom cutter from Creative Memories.

Did you notice the "patterned paper"? I stamped it! I've been very into stamping the background lately! Here I used one of the hearts available from the Hugs and Kisses set. There are 3 hearts in this set, and I used the other 2 yesterday! So this heart was just BEGGING me to be used today!

Here are just a couple more detail shots...
I used an edge distresser along the fold over flap edge as well as along the cover papers.
I also used my crazy sewing machine once again. When it started acting up i decided to just cover over it a few times. Oh i mean, i meant to make it look that way. haha!
For a faux button closure (it actually does securely close underneath using some circle pieces of velcro. I threaded my button using DMC floss and then adhered that to the button and then the adhered it to the front.

Now it's time for you to hop along to Christi Snow's blog!

Hope to see you tonight at the party!
