Hello and welcome to the Blog Hop for Paper Makeup Stamps!
This is my 2nd post for the day! Be sure to scroll down to see my post for My Time Made Easy!
First, before you all think i forgot my letter, i did not. I dont have one. The new team is so big, that there was no letter for ME! Haha! So you'll start your letter collecting at the NEXT blog. :D
If you didnt start at the PMS blog though, go there first, read the deets and then come back here. There is some important information I dont want you to miss out on!
Ok, here is my card...
I think it's quite possible that i've never been as in love with a stamp image as I am right now.
Those lips are KILLER! Ok, so obviously I am going to be loving a makeup set right?
All the stamps on this card are from the Kiss & Makeup set. The set is also going to be available in a bundle called "Everything a Girl Needs" as an uncut 8.5x11 sheet crammed full of fun images and sentiments all to do with beauty and fashion and shopping. Ahhhhh. Truly, everything a girl needs, right?
Ok, so what did i do to create this card? Well, the larger lips stamp i knew i wanted it to be red red red. I mean, thats what the quote is all about, right? (i love that quote!) So i stamped the image in versamark ink on black cardstock and then embossed over it with Top Boss embossing powder in red. It's so hard to find a red OPAQUE embossing powder and i looked for ages finding that they werent truly opaque on dark cardstock until i found this Top Boss one. :D
I then did it again and cut those lips out to pop up on the card.
You'll also notice my super fun patterned paper? That was hand stamped by Moi using the larger and smaller lips from the set!
Then we have the sentiment!
Now i love this quote, i have loved this quote for a long long time! I really do love Gwyneth Paltrow. She's such a talent and classic beauty!
But then the quote is just so perfect, and so me. Except i rarely wear red lipstick, but still, you get the idea!
Shaela and I went back and forth about this quote and whether stampers would find the quote to be "too much" which is why i love the symbols. It's the perfect happy medium and it just cracks me up!
I traced the word red with a red copic (R29 which is Red Lipstick! Just to help get that extra punch in the card.
SO thats my card for ya! Now it's time for you to hop along to one of our new team members, Bonnie Sharp!
Have a fantastic day!!!
