Sponsor Spotlight #1 - Paper Makeup Stamps

I'm sure you all remember our amazing December guest designer team member Katie Cotton. Well, Katie has launched her very own stamp company, Paper Makeup Stamps! (You go girl!) And being the sweetheart Katie is, she is sponsoring a challenge for us on Feb 28th!

Now, I have no idea when Katie has time to go to the bathroom much less start her own company. She has a toddler and an infant. She is a makeup artist and does makeup for weddings. She crafts up a storm of cards. AND now, she's launched her own line.

There are so many adorable images to choose from on the Paper Makeup website! She has CUTE animals, adorable fairies, inspiring quotes, and super fun monsters. Her stamps are red rubber (which I LOVE since they are great quality and produce a great image.) You can get them on EZ Mount or as bare rubber which makes storing them a breeze.

One thing I really love about Paper Makeup is the price! You can get a set for $10 and under! These are sets with images and sentiments! Talk about bang for your buck! She also had singles at a great price. Be sure to check out the quotes she has! Katie has made each of her quotes in two sizes. The large size is perfect if you want to use the quote as the main stamp on your card and the smaller one is awesome if you'd like to use it along with an image.

Paper Makeup Stamps are awesome if you love to color! They have wonderful outline stamps that you can add even more personality and style too with your favorite coloring techniques. Check out the Paper Makeup blog for lots of fun ideas on how to color these images and inspiration. While you are over there, check out her weekly challenges! You can win an amazing prize, one new release of your choice. (I've made a card for this that I'll share later.)

Speaking of winning, don't forget to check out our Hop With The EtsyInspired 8 on Feb 28th, 9am to 6pm Pacific Time. Paper Makeup will be sponsoring a challenge and there will be a FABULOUS prize for the winner! See you there!

PS On a personal note, my internet is down until Friday. I am currently at a Starbucks but this will probably be the only time I make it here. I'll be back to regular blogging, leaving comments, chatting, and returning emails on Friday!
