DT Call: Paper Makeup Stamps (PMS)

Paper Makeup Stamps is having a DT CALL!

Most that know me, know that I am a stamp hoarder. Most are paper hoarders, I am the opposite. I saw the Ooh La La set little over a year ago, and knew I had to have that set. To be honest I have only used it a few times. I actually used it a lot when I first got it. Majority of those cards went to Operation Write Home when I first started. The set introduced me to this stamp company, and I have grown to love them!

I was on SCS a while back, a few weeks ago, and I saw that they are having a Design Team call, and I figured, what the hey, why not try it out. If I get on, great! If not, well, then I have some amazing cards to give to Operation Write Home. I see it as a win win! Dont you?

The requirements for the call was: You MUST have a blog (Check). You have to email the following items: 3 submissions on your blog, and atleast one of them must have a colored image of some sort. All submissions should be very recent. Good news, they dont have to be PMS either. I only have 2 sets so this could help me out. (CHECK!) Then you have to email your name, address, email, and little intro about yourself, and what you love about PMS. (check!!!)

So pretty simple right?

I thought so. :) So within this blog post is my FOUR entries. I couldnt decide which ones I liked the most. But I enjoyed making all of them. 

All my entries use Recollections paper, and or Me and My Big Ideas paper. All images have been colored with Prismacolor markers, SU Stampin Write markers, and or SU Pastels. All embellishments I believe are Recollections, other items used are: Nestabilities: Oval, SU Top note.

One note I will like to take note of is that I used A LOT of pink. For some reason with these little fairies I instantly channeled my inner pink. I dont even like pink! It is just easy to work with I guess with these stamps. :)

Enjoy! And good luck to those who are participating!

Happy Birthday, Cakeabella

I personally love Stamping Bella Stamps. They were some of my very first stamps I ever purchased. I am totally addicted to them. I love this image, its cakeabella.

She is colored with Prismacolor marker, and Stampin Up Stampin Write markers. All patterned paper is SEI and the solid is Recollections. Embellishments is recollections, and the sentiment is from {ippity}.

This card is going to OPERATION WRITE HOME. My shipper Sandy is in desperate need of a variety of cards. If youre interested in OWH, you should check them out. They have a website and a Facebook Fan page. Join the fun, and make new friends!!

Bombshell Stamps May Bloghop: Goth it up!

Welcome!!! To the May Bloghop for Bombshell Stamps! If youre here from anywhere else, be sure to start from the beginning, with  Bombshell stamps blog, and join us for all the fun! If you are following along with the hop, you should have came here from the lovely Alaine's  blog.

The theme is GOTH. Now that immediately turned me off. But it was a challenge!! Then I thought about it, why not include Ms. May's Challenge of Linens and Lace.... as I used BLACK Tulle. I actually made two cards, and the second one is by far my favorite.

Each card has made with papers from Recollections, and colored with Stampin Up Stampin Write markers, and Prismacolor markers. Embellishments all come from my stash, but I do know that the flowers come from Michaels.... they were in the $1.00 bins.  The heels, have been accented with glossy effects. I am kind of mad at my self for accidently touching one of them before they dried.

I hope to find good homes for these cards. :) :) Maybe I have a friend who has a shoe fetish?

Well... I hope youre enjoying the blog hop.... now hop on over to     Dawn's  blog, and see what she is cookin up with the bombshell love!

If you happen to get lost along the way, here is a helpful listing of all the blogs in the hop. :) Hope you enjoy!

Tye Dye!

In this picture is, myself, Haley, and Diem. Its two generations of babysitting. I used to watch Haley when she was little at camp. She was actually one of my FAVORITE campers. I can not believe she is graduating high school, and just turned 18 this year. She is such an amazing woman and I am so glad Diem loves her just as much, if not more than I do. :) I needed to do something for Haley from Diem because Diem was leaving and we like to make things. Diem and I made a trio of matching tye dyed shirts.

Thank you to Haley's mama for taking this picture of us. :)

Hambo Stamps DT Call :)

Forgive me as its been a while since I have posted. I have been making cards, but due to internet issues, I have been having a hard time posting.

So, on Facebook the other day I noticed that Hambo Stamps is having a DT call. I wrote on my friend, Lena's wall and said that she needed to sign up! Then she told me... I had to do it. (It took a lot for me to get the confidence to do the Bombshell DT call... so I was thinking about not doing this one.) She and I bantered back and forth, and soon enough. I CAVED. I wrote my little email with all my submission 4-1-1 (information for those who dont know what those #'s mean).... and well... I am proud to announce my two submissions for Hambo :) NO LAUGHING!

This image (Ice Cream Man) reminds me of two things, Bert from Mary Poppins. (Bert is Dick Van Dyke's 1 of 2 characters in the movie.) and the other Baskin Robbins Ice cream. I almost wanted to color him like the character Bert, but I decided against it. Maybe the next time I make a card with this image I will keep that in mind. Also, the colors remind me of the Baskin Robbins logo. I would have loved to have added a sentiment, but I didnt think I had enough room, so the inside will say, "Whats the scoop?"
 "Bert" has been colored with Prismacolors, and Stampin Up stampin write markers. All papers came from a DCWV Baby 8x8 stack. I love how none of the patterns should have came together like that, but it makes it fun!  All flowers have come from a stash of them I have had for YEARS and havent used in along time.  All brads are glittery, and come from Recollections.
This Wee Henry, is Wee Henry Snorkel. When I saw him, it reminded me of when I took Diem to the pool this last summer, and she had a pink floatie similar to this, but it was princess. Diem had goggles too, that she never used, just kept them propped on her head the whole time.   Now, this image took a lot longer for me to come up  with an idea. But I knew!!! I had to use my Glossy Effects on this one.                       So for the card details: I had some left over scrapbook paper used (Yellow squares) I dont remember the company, as it came in a kit, The sunshine, glasses, and sunscreen came from a pack of demensional stickers that I embellished myself. I added glossy effects to the shades, and on to parts of the sun screen.... Not to forget Wee Henry... He has been colored with Prismacolor and SU markers with Glossy effects on his goggles.

I am some what satisfied with how these turned out. I submitted them to Hambo today, and their DT call is open until May 15th. :) Feel free to check them out.  As for these two cards, they are going into my stash of Operation Write Home cards. They are need of a great home :)

I would love to be apart of the Hambo team. 1) they have such cute images! and 2) they do a lot of work along side my favorite organization, Operation Write Home.
