Makeup 4 the Weekend #14

Hiya peeps! Welcome to another Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge!! You guys ROCKED last week's challenge! Wowza! I'm still trying to make the rounds so if I haven't been to your blog yet I'll get there. ;)

This week's guest Makeup Artist is the amazing Christi Snow (don't you just LOVE her name? LOL!!) and Christi's challenge is an inspiration challenge based off of this gorgeous picture...
What I love about this picture is the gorgeous colors and how clean it feels. Here's my take on this inspirational picture...
The colors and the polka dot patterns are what really drew me. You can find more details about my card on my blog. Now Christi's (the other Christi-hehe) creation...
I guess Christi's think alike? LOL!! I love how Christi used that yummy black and white polka dot dp and Moody for Music is one of my favorite Paper Makeup stamps. :) Awesome job Christi!!

Now check out more eye candy from the Paper Makeup Artists:

Now it's time for you to show off your creations!!! Here are all the details you need to know:

Make a card using the above picture as an inspiration (remember it can be anything about the card that inspires you) and link it up to Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post (direct links please). You do not have to use Paper Makeup Stamps but if you've got 'em we'd love to see your work!! When you upload to SCS/PCP please use keyword M4TW14 so we can see your creations there as well.

That's it for me!! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and get inky!!!

Back to Business!

I'm so sorry i've been missing the monday posts! And um, tuesday and wednesday last week (though i think i had monday that time!)

Busy busy busy around these parts! We've (been working in overdrive to get designs finalized, stamps produced, etc ahead of the game to give our FABULOUS design team a little bit more time to work with the stamps prior to sneak peeks. :) This will also help aid out wholesalers and if they want to have their design team work with the stamps as well.
All that being said, extra work makes me forgot to blog sometimes!
I have decided that there will not be any more weekend posts unless there is a special occasion and the Makeup for the Weekend challenge will be up all weekend long. :)

Ok, speaking of that FAAAAAABULOUS design team... i think it's about high time we do another Design Team Show Off!
Now this might be a long one... since i want to give everyone a bit of light!

Now if that doesnt get your mojo flowin' i dont know what will!

Peek back in tomorrow for some more wonderfulness from your Senior Design Team!

A Fairy for Baylee

It's not a new thing to mention that Charity is an important aspect of life to me. Honestly, I think that if you receive good fortune in life, it is out of respect to God who gave you that fortune to help others who might need help. There are so many ways to provide an act of charity to help someone. Often times, financial assistance can help someone get thru a hard time because it's one part they wont need to worry about as much.

This is where Paper Makeup Stamps has often stepped in doing charity stamps. When you purchase a charity stamp or image, all proceeds from the sale all go directly to the designated charity.

Recently, Paper Makeup Stamps was contacted by 2 friends (Carole Chesser and Ashley Newell) about a sweet girl named Baylee Tadlock. At the age of 9 months, Baylee was diagnosed with Leigh's Syndrome. Leigh's Syndrome is a metabolic-mitochondrial disease. The family was told to expect Baylee's life to be only of about 2 years. That she would never walk, talk, sit up or even crawl. But Baylee was a fighter and a lover of life! She loved to ride horses! She loved disney and princess Ariel. Baylee recently went to be with our Lord on January 9th at the age of 13. You can read all about Baylee, her too short life, and her family's amazing faith at

One of our illustrators, Diem Pascarella drew this wonderful image. All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the Tadlock family. They have set up a scholarship fund in baylee's name with Project Ride is a program giving thereaputic but recreational horseback riding instruction to children and adults with special needs.

PMS is designating the money raised to go directly to the family so that they may use the funds as they need.

We thank you for your support in helping us to remember and honor sweet Baylee Rose.

Here are some samples of cards made using this digital image.
