Once you choose hope...CAS card

>> Thursday, May 6, 2010

I am so very excited and tickled pink for what I get to share with you today!
Paper Makeup Stamps is getting a new illustrator!
Well, kinda.... haha! Lindsay Spencer did some "guest illustrations" a bit back right when I first started Paper Makeup Stamps. She couldnt come on as a full time illustrator because of some other commitments, but NOW she has had some things free up and she CAN illustrate for PMS!

YIPPPPIEEEEE! For those who know Lindsay, you know that she also has a digi stamp company called Whimsy Have. She is continuing to design for herself, her digi shop and vinyl for EAD designs, so dont you worry! However i am THRILLED that she is willing to share her talent with PMS and design things things that we can turn to rubber! Lindsay has such an awesome talent, I'm so glad that she's found so many ways to share it with the world!

Her first set is called Faith Hope Love. It truly is a set that was missing from the PMS inventory! it fits perfectly with the style, but yet it's different. Love it!
This set includes 5 different solid flower images that are like silouettes, but can be used SO many different ways. You can check out the PMS blog to see what the other Paper Makeup artists have come up with today using this set. Also included in this set are 3 awesome wordart quotes. They are a really good size, but not toooooo big. So they can be used both in scrapbookng and cardmaking.

Anyhoo enough chatting, i'm supposed to be condensing my blog posts, arent i!?

Here's my card...

Ironically after all that talk about flowers... i didnt use any of the flowers! But i did use the grass! I love that grass and can see it used for so so much!
I created by sky by using the copic airbrush. I had an extra piece of cardstock that i punched a hole out of to create the sun.

The rest of my card i kept CAS (for those that don't know what that means, it's Clean and Simple). Now looking at it, i wonder if i shouldnt have done a smidgen something else?
But again, i can never just leave well enough alone and I'm trying to perfect my CAS style.

So thats what i have for ya today! Be sure to pop back in tomorrow for the PMS blog hop!
And the challenges... and the party tomorrow night. Oh it's going to be fun!!!!
