Hoppin' with PMS

Paper Makeup Stamps is celebrating its November Release with a Blog Hop today!  You should have arrived here from the terrifically talented Tangii's Blog (don't you love alliteration?!).  If you didn't, you'll want to start at the PMS Blog so you don't miss any of the incredible inspiration along the way!


The Digi Makeover Artists are joining today's Release Hop too.  This week's challenge is to make any shape card except square with your digi images.  I die-cut two jumbo scallop circles and folded a flap down on the back one, so I could attach it to the front one as a card-back.  Love how that method keeps the face of the card intact as a circle without a fold-line showing.  {grin}

I used several elements from the Digi version of the new release Color It Winter Tags.  I shrunk down the size of the tag and added the holiday sentiment and snowman to it.  If you saw yesterday's sneak peek, you know I just HAD to have a pair of hands for that card - well I felt the same way about these mittens!  It's so easy to flip an image and get that right-handed mitten I wanted.  {wink}  I paper-pieced the mittens and the snowman. 

Oh, and that sparkly background is so easy to do if you have a Xyron.  I covered the white circle with adhesive, placed my tag and mittens where I wanted them and sprinkled the rest with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Instant sparkly background, and you can do that on any color paper you want for lots of glittery variety. 

Don't forget to come by the PMS Forum tonight between 9pm-11pm EST for our Release Party when the stamps go live in the store.  And make sure you check out and comment on ALL THREE Sneak Peek posts on the PMS Blog first.  Winners will be drawn from every day's comments for free stamps at tonight's party!  {nudge, nudge, wink, wink}

I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit today!  The next stop on today's hop is the always amazing Andrea's Blog
