Wise Men

*For my Flutterby Wednesday post, please scroll down*



Today begins the sneak peeks for Paper Makeup Stamps November's Release and we are starting with Word Art. Be sure to check out all the fabulous samples that the Makeup Artists have created for you at the PMS Blog, as well as ways to win some free rubber! {wink}


For my card I got to thinking about the Wise Men and how one of the gifts they brought was gold. I thought the Beaded Oval Nestabilities from Spellbinders would make a beautiful gold frame and it reminds me of a crown. The crossed ribbon in the background reminds me of a gift. The word art stamp itself was embossed in gold on shimmery white cardstock and the star filled in with a yellow spica glitter pen.

Remember that there will be more sneak peeks this week and more ways to win some new stamps! Then on the 7th, we will have our release party in the
PMS forum from 9-11pm EST. We hope you'll join us for some chatter and fun that night!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the beary best!
