Paper Makeup Stamps December Fan Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today is our Paper Makeup Stamps monthly blog hop, but since we don't have a release this month (we are changing to releases every other month), we are having a special hop which includes fans of Paper Makeup Stamps! There are a lot of chances to win some PMS products with this hop! You can find all that information on the PMS blog. PMS is also having a fabulous sale (which includes free shipping)! You can find that information on the PMS blog.

If you've come here from Stephanie's blog, you are on the right track. If not, start at the PMS blog, get all the fun information, and start hopping!

The theme for this hop is winter or holiday. I've got two cards to share with you on this hop. The first one uses new stamps from our November release.I LOVE Christmas cut-out cookies with the anise flavoring, so this card made me chuckle! The gingerbread man is from the Christmas Cheer set, and the sentiment is a single one found here. I used the Mojo Monday sketch and some fab dp from Jillibean called Christmas Chestnut Soup. The poor gingerbread man is paper pieced with kraft paper. I added the white accents with a white jel pen.

I wasn't as satisfied with this card as I had thought I would be, so I decided to make another. I changed the stamps, used the same papers and ribbon, but changed the layout. This is my second try. I used one of my favorite stamps sets ever from PMS, Snow Happy. The image is colored with copic markers. The sentiment was stamped on the back side of my snowflake dp, then cut with a Spellbinder's tag. The ribbon was just knotted and the tag attached with some twine. I also sponged some Ranger white pigment ink around the tag and the dp to soften the edges a bit. I added some Star Dust stickles for some sparklely snow.

Your next stop on our hop is one of our fans, Lindsy Harness. Please show her some love and continue hopping! There's a possible prize for commenting on all the blogs! I've included a list and link to all the blog hop participants in case you get lost!

Thanks for stopping and hopping with me today! Have a great week!

LOL, that gingerbread card is too funny! Never thought to pair that sentiment with him. :) Snow Happy is one of my favorite PMS sets too. Your snowman card is delightful with that knotted bow and glitter brads. :)

(Our snowday was yesterday-not the day I planned when Dave called with the good news!
Brand new furnace quit working, too much snow to move so I didn't get done what I thought I would! What else is new?) More coming!
