Copper Flowers

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW160 Open Challenge
Speedy the Cat's Friends - #61 Make It Sparkle and Birthday Swap

Flutterby Wednesday is back after a week off.  Not only do we have everybody's favorite Open Challenge {just remember your butterfly, fairy or angel}, but we also have a sponsor!  Through the Craftroom Door will be giving away a one-year .pdf subscription to one lucky participant.  Check out the FBW Blog for all the details! {wink}

I have used the flowers from Brick Wall by Mark's Finest Papers.  I colored them with a Cameo Coral marker and a clear stardust glitter pen for some sparkle.  Well, that combination gave these pretty flowers a copper tone that matches the Crisp Copper Kettle paper perfectly ~ what a happy surprise!  {squeal}

 Thanks for fluttering by and I hope to see your creation at Flutterby Wednesday this week!

Quixotic Paperie with PMS

Today some of the Paper Makeup Stamps Design Team are joining with the Quixotic Paperie Design Team to throw the spotlight on the Paper Makeup Stamps range as part of Quixotic Paperie's 2nd Anniversary celebrations (Quixotic Paperie are the UK online stockist for Paper Makeup Stamps)!

As you may be aware - Paper Makeup Stamps is owned by Katie Cotton and to give you a clue as to where the name of her company came from - Katie is a professional makeup artist. Katie has some fabulous artists contributing to her company including Steve Hammond with the Monsters range, Diem Pascarella's Beautiful Day Fairies, Moody Girls by Cynthia Liu and the Retro Cutie Critters by Diem Pascarella.
The Paper Makeup Stamps range is available in the UK/Europe at Quixotic Paperie.

As part of the celebrations and the spotlight today, we have a PRIZE GIVEAWAY!

Pop on over to the Quixotic Inspirations blog to get all the details and enter the draw to win some fantastic Paper Makeup Stamps and more!

For my card I have used Springtime Solids and Celebration Sentiments.  I was in a tropical mood after my son's Hawaiian Luau party at school, so my card works with the Flutterby Wednesday colors too!  {grin}  I rock 'n rolled the flowers to get the two-tone coloring and added glitter to the centers. 

Now for some more inspiration! Hop on over to each of the blogs below to see some fantastic Paper Makeup Stamps creations!

Thanks for joining us and we hope you are enjoying all the Paper Makeup Stamps loveliness.

Moody for Summer

Actually, this Moody Girl is called Moody for Music, but doesn't she look great with these summery yellow papers?  {wink}   Paper Makeup Stamps is celebrating summer with a Blog Hop and links for all the Makeup Artists are below for your convenience. 

I love coloring an image in monochromatic grays and then setting it off with a bright color.  I've used papers from Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket and A Walk in the Park by Echo Park.  The Kasiercraft Flowers and Opaline Pearls can be found in the PMS Store too!  The sentiment is one of many from Little Moments.

One Wing

SCS Color Combo - CC325                      Moving Along - MWATT#101 No DP
SCS Sketch - SC335                                Creatalicious  - #22 Flourishes
SCS Ways to Use - WT325 Die Cuts        Divas by Design - DBD Florals
Paper Makeup Stamps - Friday Freebie   Cupcake Inspiration - #113

It's time for another Friday Freebie at Paper Makeup Stamps!  I just love the combination of fonts in this word art.  {grin}  Be sure to stop by the blog or store and pick it up for yourself!  Then we'd love to see what you create with it.  You can add your creations to the Splitcoast Gallery with the keyword "Paper Makeup Stamps" or leave a link to your blog post in the comments on the PMS Blog.

For my card, I stretched the SCS sketch to fit a square instead of the standard quarter sheet size.  I embossed the flower panel first, cut it into the sections for the sketch and added a different color to the raised part for each panel with my brayer.  I tapped off the ink once each time for my Swirlie Bud flourishes in the background.  And I love how well these colors and flowers go with this week's Cupcake Inspiration Photo.  How anyone could eat such pretty cupcakes is beyond me!  {LOL}

Don't forget that the Design Team Call for some new Makeup Artists ends tomorrow, June 4th!  And be sure to look for our summer blog hop next Tuesday, June 7th. 

Thanks for the visit and I wish you all the beary best!
