2 Sponsored Challenges from Paper Makeup Stamps

Today Paper Makeup Stamps is sponsoring not 1, but 2 challenges!!!
And in case you missed our post yesterday, PMS is having a design team call!
We have lots to share with you today, so you may want to grab a cup of joe for this one!

Let's start with our first challenge we are sponsoring today...
Of course this challenge is near and dear to my heart, as I am also on the challenge design team.
I love those girls and they have wowed me yet again with their amazing creations!
You may remember last time we sponsored with a monochromatic challenge!
This time we are swtiching gears a little bit and asking you to use YELLOWS.
Go over to the Copic Creations Blog to check out what the team has done and see what you need to do to get yourself entered to win!

PMS is also sponsoring Thru the Craftroom Door this week! Our challenge over there is to use Any Winged Thing! Um, thats not a hard task with PMS, right?! We have plenty of winged things from fairies to butterflies!
Thru the Craftroom Door is an online magazine run by 2 of my online buddies, Suzanne Dean (also a fellow Copic Creations team member, i heart her!) and Marti Wills. You really should check out their magazine for some amazing inspiration! But you don't have to be a subscriber to play along! Check out their challenges HERE.

Here is my card using the new Lea stamp and previously released simple sentiment, Hello Sunshine. Check out all the new releases HERE.
You can see that I colored my card in all yellows plus used a fairy for my winged thing.
I love to combine challenges!

Check out what some of the other Paper Makeup Artists made to share using winged things!

And wait... there is 1 more special announcement you may have missed yesterday!
Paper Makeup Stamps is having a design team call!!!

Friday Freebie is BACK!

Well, i THINK Blogger is finally back to working!

You know what else is back?! PMS Friday Freebie!!!!
In earlier PMS days, we used to offer a free digi stamp every Friday.
Well depending on what else we have in the works on a friday, we will very likely have a freebie for you!

Todays Friday Freebie is a wordart put together by ME!
Yes, I'm proud of myself, I played on the computer just for the heck of it... just to give you all a fun freebie to play with! This is a great way to try out digi stamps and see how they work for you!

You know one of the things I like best about a digital stamps... the ability to size them however you'd like! Here are 2 sample cards I did, using the same basic overall design, but with 2 very different sizes of the wordart printed...

With the above card, I was also able to use it with an image (in this case, one of the new silhouette fairies, but one of our lineart images to color would have worked as well)

In this one, I printed the word art nice and large (this is the size it will print if you do not do any resizing before printing). This makes it a great focal point to a card or tag or even a scrapbook page.

When you download this wordart, you will get both a .jpg version and a .png version with a transparent background. This is for our digi scrapping friends who love to use these wordarts on their scrapbook pages!

And now, here are 2 more samples from some of our paper makeup artists!!!

We also posted about this friday freebie on our FACEBOOK FAN PAGE!
If you are a facebook user, we'd love to see you over on our fan page! We'd love to see what you create as well!

Card by Tina Hale

Card by Lisa Kind
And thats not all... we have had so much feedback from having coordinating stamps that can either be used with the fairy image, or inside the card OR even on it's own, we decided to do it again, enlarging the kite from the above set and creating it's own stamp...

Card by Tangii Crain

And Next up is Lars and a whole lotta presents!

Card by Lisa McKinney

Card by Dawn Mercedes

Notice the Suprise sentiment that Dawn used above... well that sentiment is this month's freebie! There are limited quantities available, but every order placed will receive this stamp until we run out!

Going along again with the coordinates... we also decided to enlarge the presents!!!

Card by Shaela Odd

And last by not least... we had many people ask if we would puh-leeeeeease turn the Natalie digi released for our birthday in February into a rubber stamp. Well she's just so cute how could we not? Here are some samples using her in rubber form...
Card by Randee Elsing

And last but not least, we have also taken the cake that Natalie is holding and enlarged it to make it's own stamp as well!
