December Fan Club Blog Hop - Holiday Style


So this is the beginning of a fun new event for Paper Makeup Stamps. Since Katie, the owner, decided to switch to every other month releases, she decided that we just cannot let a month go by without a Blog Hop. The catch is that it is not just the design team, but some of the PMS Fans as well! How fun! So you should be arriving to my blog from Michelle McDaniel's Blog (awesome huh?!). If not, make sure you start at the beginning at the PMS Blog so you don't miss anything! As a precaution you can use the Link List below if there are any issues. While you are hopping, be sure to leave comments along the way...one lucky commenter will receive a grab bag of stamping goodies (speaking of grab bags, don't forget about all of the amazing grab bags that are being offered...I got mine)! I am the final stop on the Hop, so sit back and stay awhile!

For my card, I used the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #85 for my layout. I used the Moody for Presents (by PMS of course) and stamped her in Whisper White craft ink and embossed it with Crystal Clear embossing powder on Crumb Cake cardstock. Then I colored her with Bravo Burgundy, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, and Whisper White ink and an aquabrush. Had a heck of time with he eyes...the white outline or something was just not making it easy on me...so sorry they suck a little!

She was cut out with Oval Nestabilities and layered on top of a Labels 16 die cut of Chocolate Chip cardstock. The pattern paper is from the Christmas Chestnut Soup on Kraft Collection by Jillibean Soup. The final details were some sponging, paper piercing, the white taffeta ribbon, and a couple of snowflakes.

I hope that you enjoyed the Blog Hop! Remember you have until December 14 to comment at all of the stops along the hop in order to have a chance to win the grab bag of stamping goodies! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
