A Wonderful Combination


So many things can form a wonderful combination: colors, textures, patterns, papers, etc. Well how about a combination of Design Teams celebrating one fantastic stamp company?! Quixotic Paperie is the sole online UK retailer of Paper Makeup Stamps, so we decided to join forces for a day to show you how awesome Paper Makeup Stamps really is! We hope that you enjoy all that the Paper Makeup Design Team members and the Quixotic Paperie Design Team members have to show you. Below is a list of everyone participating today, but if you want to start at the beginning of the eye candy train, then you need to check out the blog of Elaine Hughes, the owner of Quixotic Paperie!

So for my eye candy today, I pulled out my much beloved and much used set, Dandy Wishes (which can be found HERE on the QP site). I inked it up with So Saffron ink and then a I "thumped" (technical term there...lol!) my Rich Razzelberry marker all over the inked up stamp. Gave it a little "huff" and stamped it on some white cardstock. I ticket corner punched all of the corners and added a vanilla button with some twine to the center. This was then layered on top of some great So Sophie paper by My Mind's Eye and finished off with some twine.

Now you need to go check out the rest of all of the other designers have in store for you...you will see how fantastic Paper Makeup Stamps really are!

Andrea Vernagus <- that's me!

Enjoy all of the eye candy and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
