Gotta Put My Makeup On...

On my BLOG, that is! My friend introduced me
(read...ENABLED) to these gorgeous stamps. They are from a stamp line called PAPER MAKEUP... how cute is that? You use makeup to enhance your face... so you use STAMPS to enhance your PAPER... get it!(LOL) She has beautiful sentiments and the other stamps are just plain PRECIOUS!!! She has animals and fairies and MONSTERS!!! OH MY!





So let me tell ya about my cards... The first one is a sentiment from Paper Makeup. I used SU designer paper and my new scroll punch. This paper called for pearls, scrolls and paper roses! I love the way my MS punch made the paper look like lace... I used my nesties as well and here is the card.








For this next card, I used one of the gorgeous Fairy images from Paper Makeup and colored her with copics. I used SHIMMERZ on her wings and on my embossed background paper. Oh yeah... I used SHIMMERZ on the little paper flowers also! I stamped the fairy on paper that I cut with the large nesties. I cut the background circles with my nesties as well and added details with gel and glitter pens. I added the ribbon and the heart button on it! I thought it looked like she had scattered that one as well. More scrolls and then the dots and here it is!










Oh and how can you even be afraid of THIS monster? How cute is DRECK? I think what HE is afraid of is 40!!! Don't be scared, Dreck... it only hurts for a minute! He is one of the darling monsters (or is he an aliens?) from Paper Makeup. I used my trusty nesties again and the copics to color this little guy. I had some awesome ribbon that matched my color scheme perfectly and it also matched all of the dots! I used crystal effects on his eye and SHIMMERZ on the dots and the horns! I love the way this turned out and I really love this IMAGE!!! it is just SOO cute!

So those are the cards... please take a minute to check out Paper Makeup stamps... I know that you will enjoy what you see there! Have a good one!!!

Hi Dawn

I deleted my 1st comment - didn't make sense after I read it!

Anyhoo - your cards are so cute and that monster is adorable. I love the 1st one the most because I love lace and pearls!

Amazing cards! I love the first one, it is such a great saying and the background you created with the punch and scrolls mades it so elegant looking. Your fairy card is so cute. Love all the pink and the circle decorated behind the image. Wow that monster is awesome! I love the colors you used and how creative to have him point 40. LOL

I love all your layers! I think my favorite card is that monster! He is just so unique and I love the way you decorated the card and his eye!! Love it!

Oooo...I do love the monster eye (good point mama monkey)...brilliant site. Perhaps you could get a little side business at the tire shop. People could stamp while they wait...rubber in the air?!?
