It's day 2 of the sneak peeks from Paper Makeup Stamps!
Quick reminder (as if you needed it with my picture to the side here!) the release party is THIS saturday at 8pm EST in the PMS forum. This is also when the stamps go live on the site! You dont want to miss it!
The peeks today are of 2 new moodies and 3 new wordarts!
You'll definitely want to go to the company blog to check out everything. Me? well today I went simple with NO coloring! I know! I was shocked too! Seriously?!
Sometimes cards with a sentiment only can be the hardest for me to make. This is because i can't rely on the color to me the focus. Hmmmm... what to do.... I KNOW! The mojo challenge! Julee always has the BEST sketches! Sketches that would never in a million years come to my noggin! You can see the sketch at the right.
As you will see below... i stuck to the sketch pretty literally. Of course there is enough detail that you already envision a pretty card, it's hard to stray away! I did, however, change the scallop circle to an adorable pinwheel. I used to make pinwheels all the time. Well, at CHA you saw pinwheels all over the place! In paper lines, in stamp collections, in embellies. Pinwheels are definitely a hot thing right now!
And so super easy to make! I used some of my yet to be used SummerTime collection from Echo park (LOVE this paper company!) for all layers of my card. How ironic... the cloud paper (you know i'm completely smitten with clouds) is my favorite from the entire pack, and you can barely tell they are clouds behind my layers!
Speaking of layers... i know there is a lot going on with my card since i chose such bright and bold papers. I didnt want to weigh it down with more layers for mats but at the same time, i just plain doesnt feel like a card is finished without mats! SO, i opted to sponge the edges with black ink. it was just enough to ground each layer without adding too much bulk to the card. :D
And that wordart... isnt it delish?! Its one of the new to be released sentiments from Paper Makeup Stamps and i totally adore it!
Aww, fudgaroo, as i type this close to midnight.... i hear not one but BOTH my boys now awake and out of their beds playing. *sigh* no rest for the weary. So i suppose i will wrap this post up. You got all the info anyway.
Check back in tomorrow for another sneak peek from the PMS August Release!!!
