A Colorful Paper Makeup Monday

Happy Monday peeps! It's Christi here with another Paper Makeup Monday challenge. Before I get into this week's challenge I do want to let you guys know that this will be our last challenge for a few weeks while we make the final decision on where we want the challenges to go as far as a separate blog and days. (If you haven't voted yet please vote on the sidebar) You know I'll keep you posted and from the votes so far it looks like you'll be ending you week with me instead of starting it with me. *wink*

OK, now onto this week's challenge which is a FAB color challenge from the incredibly talented Tina Hale: olive, ruby, and chocolate. I LOVE this color combo!!
I don't know why my ruby looks pink but it's ruby I promise. :) Now check out what the rest of the design team did with this yummy color combo...

Lisa Kind

I hope you all can play along with us this week! Remember, you do not have to use Paper Makeup Stamps to play along but if you've got them why not use them?

Please link up to Mr. Linky with a direct link to your challenge creation and if you upload to SCS/PCP please use keywordPMSMC29 so we can see your creations there as well.

Now go color your world! :) Happy Stamping!!

OMG did you SEE?!

PMS has had a card published on You can see a link to the article... HERE

Also in the article is a WONDERFUL charity cause to donate cards to the Orphan Foundation of America! In celebration of World Card Making Day, Angela of Angela's Happy Stamper is collecting cards to send to former foster children who are attending colleges and trade schools and are soley responsible for their own higher education.

If you live in Virginia, Angela's store in is Reston and you can take your cards directly to the store and get a coupon to get 30% off any 1 item!

However, if you dont live close to the store... you can still have some savings... on PMS that is!

Once you've made your cards and addressed the envelope... please take a picture of your package and email it to or make a post on your blog about the cards you've made and that you are mailing them off (and email me to let me know where to check out the post). Your email will be replied to with a 10% off voucher to be used ON THE ENTIRE SITE! Thats right, 10% off your entire order whether it's stamps, copics, spellbinders, or what have you! :) That could be some pretty big savings. :)

The card guidelines are simple:
No glitter – It’s pretty but it gets all over everything in the Care Package
No religious messages
No mention of them being in foster care or orphaned
No envelopes – each card has to be reviewed prior to being sent

Suggested words or encouragement:
"Keep up the good work!"
"We know you can do it!"
"You will succeed!"

Essentially anything you think a college-aged student would want or need to hear to stay motivated.

How to sign your cards: * this is just for an example
First Name Only: Katie*
Organization (optional): Paper Makeup Stamps*
City and State: Greenville, SC*
Do not include any contact information (i.e., address, telephone numbers or e-mail address).

And now... here's some eye candy for you!

Fall Changes!

Oh i just love the transition from summer to fall! The leaves start to turn, the weather starts to cool, SCHOOL starts! hahaha.

Today is officially the first day of Fall! So We are using this day to let you in on some of the changes you'll see from PMS this fall!

The most exciting, is our COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS! Starting in October, each saturday there will be a new sale that will run that week. The sales will vary each week and will not repeat. There are 12 weeks before christmas so there will be 12 different sales for you to take advantage of!

Design Team Changes... we will be saying a few sad goodbyes to some wonderful design team members who are embarking on the next journey of their lives. But we also also welcoming a new comer AND we'll be having a special hunt for our next Guest Designers! Deets on this will start in October!

Digi changes... some of our digi's will be retiring. Dont worry, the stamp image isnt retiring, but some of the past digi's that have been rubberized will be removed from the website. This is to help the sales for our wholesale friends. From now on, digi images (like the fairies, monsters, etc) will be availbale for 1 month after they are released and then will be removed from the website. The may return now and then for specials. :) But you'll have a month to get them for sure. All digi wordart will remain on the site for our digi scrappin ladies!

A new "you design the stamp" challenge is underway! Stay tuned for details on that as well!

And last but not least... we may be moving our Monday Challenge to a different day of the week and are also contemplating whether we should start a special blog just for our challenges. We would love your feedback! Please check out the sidebar for some polls on the topic and please vote on what you prefer!

PMS Monday Is Getting Punchy!

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another Paper Makeup Monday Challenge!! This week Tangii is challenging everyone to get punchy: use die cuts or punches on your creations. Before you go "WOOHOO! NESTIES!" I have to tell you that Nestabilities do not count for this challenge. You can use them but you must use another kind of punch/die as well.

I decided to play it safe and just use my square punch...
All of the squares in the background were punched using my 1 3/8" square punch. :) Now check out the rest of the design teams punchy creations...

I hope you all can play along with us this week! Remember, you do not have to use Paper Makeup Stamps to play along but if you've got them why not use them?

Please link up to Mr. Linky with a direct link to your challenge creation and if you upload to SCS/PCP please use keyword PMSMC28 so we can see your creations there as well.
