Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop and Release Day!

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to the Paper Makeup Stamps March blog hop! We have a "Monster of a Hop" for you today....we are sneaking our new monsters! You should have arrived from Dawn Knight's blog. If you just happened to stop by (thank you for that), you should go to the PMS blog to follow the hop and pick up the letters that will spell out a code to get you 15% off the entire March release! It's a great release, too!

The cute little monster I have to share with you today is Buzz.

This image just makes me smile! Buzz comes as one stamp with one bee and a trail. I cut the bee and trail off to be a separate stamp. Then I inked up the bee several times and then pierced the trails behind them. I chose this Basic Grey Lemonade dp because it sort of looked like a honeycomb pattern. I paired it with SU's Bermuda Bay cardstock and ribbon. The sentiment is actually positioned horizontally, but it didn't fit that way on my card, so I got out my Stamp-a-ma-jig and inked one word at a time to stack the words. It worked better for me. I guess I could have just cut it in half instead of going through all that! Oh well! I swirled some Bermuda Bay ink around both circles, and then added the silver pearls. This sketch is from Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try.

My letter for you to take with you on your hop is the letter "K". Your next stop on the hop is
