A fairy happy birthday blog hop

Yes!! Today marks Paper Makeup Stamps' first anniversary!  Happy Birthday, Katie. What a great accomplishment!

The Paper Makeup Artists were asked to make a card...using their favorite stamp. I can assure you that most of us had a hard time picking a favorite.  You can never have too many favorite PMS stamps!!  Originally, I thought to go with one of my first purchases...Penelope and Sprout.  But then...I changed my mind.


Instead, I chose to use Kirsten on a card. She was one that was on my wish list since the beginning.  A rubber fairy gifted it to my DD.   I decided to use it myself...as a stamp you just gotta have!  I stamped the wings on acetate and dusted them with fairy dust.  Another trick I would do since the beginning of my PMS career.  This fairy is one of the easier images to do this with since the wings are large and to the side of the girl. It's so sparkly and fun in real life! I added the iconic "swirlie tree."  Another MUST HAVE if you are collection PMS stamps.
Also, I added the iconic "swirlie tree." Another MUST HAVE if you collect (and most definitely use) PMS stamps.


 
My letter to you...of course...



You should have come from Tina's blog!  Now, flutter on to the next fairy house, Maria's, for another look back at the very grand first year of Paper Makeup.  Collect all the letters and you will have a 15% code...good for this week!  Remember to flutter back to the PMS forum at 8pm CST for the chatter, party and prizes. Have a great day!
