Paper Makeup Stamps is 2 years old! We're celebrating with a VIP blog hop based on "the things we love". The entire design team invited special crafters to play along in this hop and I'm so happy to be asked to participate. You should have arrived here from Ginger's blog. (Ginger actually stayed in my craft/guest room last summer on her way home from CHA with Katie! :) If you didn't get here from Ginger's blog, you should go back to the Paper Makeup Stamps company blog so you can start at the beginning. There's also a master list in case you get lost. And don't forget to enter yourself to win a super fabulous prize!
This is my "stamping birthday" too because I bought PMS stamps at the first PMS release to support my daughter's new venture. Then I thought I should figure out what to do with them. Katie has been an excellent enabler and now with several tools, more "nesties" than any one person should have, drawers full of flowers, bling, buttons, brads, ribbon, punches, paper, ink pads, etc., I love my PMS stamps and my new crafting hobby!
For this hop, I chose to use an image and a sentiment from the new PMS set called "Sending You Love". I paper pieced the mailbox and the little flag. My dp is from the "dots, stripes, and plaids" DCWV matstack and has a sheen in it so I had a little trouble getting a good photo.
I used stickles on the stamped hearts and some tiny little heartshaped bling to add even more sparkle. The flower is Prima with a glitter brad center. I also pierced the edges and then hand stitched some embroidery floss around the edge. Here's a closeup of my mailbox:
Now on to Jami to see what fabulousness she has for you. Hope to see you all tonight at the party!
