Paper Makeup Stamps - Fairy Sneak Peeks

Happy Tuesday! I've got another sneak peek for you from Paper Makeup Stamps. Today we are sneaking the new Beautiful Day Fairies. There are two new ones plus another in the new January kit (which you'll see on Thursday) that you will fall in love with. I have Sasha the Skating Fairy to show you today. I don't say this too often, but I really love this card! I wasn't sure of its outcome while I was working on it, but once I added that velvet ric rac ribbon and flower, I just went "ahhhh!" Did that ever happen to you? I'm sure it did!


I took the colors of light pink, yellow, and peach from Mona's CR84FN color challenge. The colors just grabbed me...I've always loved peach. My bridesmaids wore peach in my wedding (it was the '90s!) and I just love that soft color. So I used blush blossom cardstock and ran it through the swirls folder and paired it with paper from Basic Grey's Porcelain paper pad. I colored Sasha accordingly.

The layout is from Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try. She's going to monthly sketches (which makes me sad, but I know it's difficult to keep up with weekly demands) and just LOVE her sketches. I used a new tool on this card that I've had but have not used. It's My Favorite Thing's Die-namics rolled flower die (they must be out of stock because I couldn't find it in their store). It took me a while to figure out how to use it, but I managed to get it right. I cut it out of the blush blossom cardstock and added a pearl in the middle. I also addes star dust stickles around it...so pretty! The ribbon was gifted to me by Bonnie Sharp and it's from Sharon Johnson's store.

I'm also entering this in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #15 to use something new and ribbon. Well, the die, the ribbon, and the Sasha fairy are all new!

You can see more sneak peeks on the PMS blog. Randee, Jami (our newest PMS DT member!), Lisa M, Maria, and Simonne are all posting today, so stop over to their blogs as well. Don't forget the new release will be available on Friday, January 7th. We're having our blog hop that day as well as our Release Party starting at 9:00 pm EST. We'd love for you to join us in the PMS forum for some fun!
