Want to win a free stamp set?

Then head on over to Mark's Finest Papers blog for a challenge. Winners will be chosen and it may be you!!!!! The challenge is to create something and use a die cut on your card. Well how easy is that? WAY! Here is a sample card I created for the challenge.

I love this quote. The clear stamps are so easy to use and change the shape a little. I chose to curve the saying just a bit and then cut it out into the wavy shape. Clever, eh? lol This is a new set being released this month called Apples & Camellia. This is actually a sneak peek! Lucky you!

For the front of my card, I cut/embossed the big red apple and then stamped the cute little row of apples across it using white craft ink and then embossed with white. I trimmed off the embossed edge of the apple shape (Spellbinders) and backed it with a white shape to bring it out just a little more. Added the cute red and white gingham ribbon (also available from MFP!). As I said, the saying was positioned on my acrylic block with a curve to it and stamped using red ink. I then cut that shape out with scissors and backed it with red and cut the same shape. The border is another Spellbinders borderability and I added more of that wonderful ribbon to the top of that panel. I love gingham, especially red and white gingham. It's so fresh and fun, don't you think?
and check out the inside for the rest of the story. (As Paul Harvey would say. lol)

Isn't that a fun saying? This card is sure to cheer up a sick friend.
Now be sure to check out all the designer's creations over at the MFP blog. Wow, there is some talent on this team. Be sure to upload your fun creation. I'll cross my fingers for you that you will win a free stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by!
What a fun new set! I love apples.
