Holly, Jolly Christmas

This week the Digi Makeover Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps has a festive color challenge for you - perfect for the week before Christmas and those last minute cards and tags!  {wink}  Think Red, Dark Green, Light Green and Gray/Silver. 

Once again, I re-colored one of the sentiments from Season's Greetings in the program.  It's great, because once I save a colored version, I can print it out as many times as I want.  I find it easiest to add my saved image to a new Word document and position it there for printing. 

Be sure to check out the PMS Blog for info on the big rubber closeout sale going on now.  Paper Makeup Stamps is switching to all digi very soon and selling off the rubber stamp inventory.  Who wouldn't like some extra stamps in their stocking?! 

As always, thanks for the visit and I hope to see your entry in our Digi Makeover Color Challenge this week!

Merry & Bright

It's time for some paper piecing at the Digi Makeover Challenge by Paper Makeup Stamps.  I enlarged the stocking from Color It Winter Tags and pieced it with some retired SU! papers.  The digi saying is from the Season's Greetings set.  I colored some of the words in Paint.NET before sizing it up and positioning it in a Word document to print it just where I would want it on my cardstock. 

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope you'll play along with us this week and link up your paper-pieced digi creations at the PMS Blog!  {wink}

Warm Winter Wishes

I have a fun card and some December news to share.  {grin}  First off, Paper Makeup Stamps is celebrating winter with a Blog Hop today.  Be sure to start at the PMS Blog, so you catch all the latest announcements and don't forget about the Rubber Clearance Sale going on right now.  Then hop along with us and enjoy some fabulous winter cards by the Makeup Artists.  For your convenience, a hop list is at the end of this post.

Secondly, Flutterby Wednesday is having one {BIG} open challenge for the {ENTIRE} rest of December.  You can play along and  link your creations as often as you like this month, until midnight PST on December 31st.  And you never know - there just might be a prize in there somewhere this month too.  {wink}  Just remember to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on all your creations.

Now for my card today, I could not wait to try the Herringbone pattern that Beate posted on Splitcoast.  So fun and easy!  I want to make more in lots of different color schemes!  {lol}  Winter makes me think of hot cocoa - yum!  I've paired a sentiment from Snow Happy with the Beautiful Day fairy named Cosette.

Cut It Out

This week at the Digi Makeover Challenge by Paper Makeup Stamps we want you to "Cut It Out"!  Find your scissors and cut out your digi images for some dimension on your creations!  {wink}

I've used the lighthouse image and matching sentiment from Sailing By.  I chose to enlarge them both before printing so they would really stand out on my card.  The lighthouse is colored simply with copics and popped up on dimensionals. 

Thanks for the visit and be sure to check out the PMS Blog for all the pretty samples by the Digi Artists, as well as the entry details for the challenge!
