>> Sunday, April 4, 2010

This is my 2nd post for the day!

Today is the first day for the sneak peeks from Paper Makeup Stamps!
Today the team is showing off some fairies and wordart! Check out the PMS blog to get more details on how you can win them! (ok, so you just need to leave a comment on the blog!)
But you can also see some sneaks from some very talented ladies!

Here is my card using Greg!



Now many of you know, Greg is the name of my hubby. Last month during the release party we were playing a little game to guess how many of the stamps were named after family members. And i released i didn't even have one after my own hubby! So this stamp had to be born.

Now my hubby doesnt have that much hair. In fact he has very little these days! But he cuts it very short. :) His thought was that maybe i should focus on his younger days. haha. Well this fits perfectly with the shaggy long hair, hoodie jacket and tall socks. Too fun! I even decided to color his hair red (my hubby is naturally a blonde, but he too has had lots of fun dying his hair and for quite some time, he dyed it red!)

Here is a closer view...

I did a little bit of doodling highlights using a white souffle pen (by Sakura, same as the gelly roll) but since it's a "souffle" pen, it's a little softer than the strong white gel pen. I like this effect for high lights. :) but i do always seem to forget it!

All the edges of my card were distressed using a CTMH edge distresser. The carsdtock for the image was also sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink.

Now here's something else i dont do very often... decorate the inside of my cards.
I'm really not sure why, other than leaving the space open inside leaves room for whatever i might want to use the card for. However, since I knew i wanted to give this card to my hubby, i wanted a special sentiment for the inside.

I chose one of the wordarts, The Most Important Thing, we released in January in honor of valentine's day. However, i think this wordart can be used any time of the year.

I kept with the distressed feeling and distressed all my edges. Once i got to my sentiment, i couldnt find the edge distresser so i just used my finger nail. Not quite as distressed, but so much more worth while than searching for 30 minutes. :)

So thats my sneak peek for ya! Dont forget to check out the rest of the design team HERE!
Leave a comment, and you could win the whole release.
Also, join the PMS team in a release party on the 7th at 8pm CST. We'll have give aways, chatter, games and a whole lot more!

Whew. Ok, one last thing, this is my 2nd post for the day, and I'm kinda proud of my card (mainly because it's a technique i've been a little too chicken to try) so keep scrolling down to check it out!
