Welcome to Paper Makeup Stamps 1st Birthday! We are celebrating this event with a blog hop. So, if you came here from the Delightful Danni's blog, you are on the right track. If you just stopped in here, please go to the PMS blog and start there. You will get some important information that you won't want to pass up!
We were asked to choose our favorite PMS stamp to use for this hop. Yesterday there was a flurry of confusion over which was our favorite stamps...they are all fab, right? I went with not necessarily my favorite, but with one that I thought fit this occasion. I chose Katie the Makeup Fairy (anyone who knows me knows I LOVE these Beautiful Day Fairies...it's what drew me to PMS in the first place). This fairy was created for Katie Cotton, owner of PMS. In addition to being a crafter, business woman, mom, and wife, she is a makeup artist and the sweetest young thing! She is also fun, talented, fair, understanding, and charitable. I can honestly say that I am thrilled to be on her design team and especially proud to be on her Senior team and call her friend. So it is with great pleasure that I share my Katie the Makeup Fairy card. I started with the PMS colors of pink and gray. Both the papers are from a SU hostess pack. The design on the pink dp sort of reminded me of the PMS swirls. I colored Katie accordingly. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the newest release called Birthday Cheer. It's a horizontally positioned stamp, but I wanted it vertical, so I just stamped it twice masking off one word each time. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement just right. The "Paper Makeup Stamps" stamp is from the Made With Love set. I really like the way this came out! Perfect for the occasion. I placed two pink primas of different sizes together and placed a knotted piece of basic gray taffeta ribbon in the center and added the silver pearls below the flower. I followed the sketch from my friend Diane from Paper Cookies.
Oh, and the cupcake? It was gone right after the picture was taken and it was DE-LISH! The frosting was raspberry flavor! Happy Birthday PMS! Oh, and Happy Birthday to Gabby, PMS DT member, too!
