Mark's Finest Papers November Blog Hop! Day One!

And…LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!

We have 6 New Stamp Sets Released: Brick Wall, Bells on Bobtail, Christmas Postage Due, Bold & Free, Muscial Holiday and Welcome Home. For your convenience, all 6 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, (November 13, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

Using the set Bells On Bobtail, I created these tags by stamping the jingle bells (oh, I love jingle bells!) using Versamark ink then coloring in with Copic markers. I sprayed gold glimmer mist over the entire tag and then added the sentiment stamped in red.



The Brick Wall set is really fun and versatile. For this card, I stamped the brick wall image onto a brick colored card stock then distressed the edges of the panel with a distressing tool and sponging of inks. I then stamped the vine image using versamark ink and embossing with white embossing powder. I colored the embossed vine with pastels, then went back and colored the flowers with purple Smooch and a little gold smooch in the cneters. The butterflies were stamped onto a smoosh created piece of cardstock and embossed with black before cutting out and adding a little more gold smooch. The brick image is mounted onto brown. The butterflies on the brick wall are popped up. I created the purple mat by stamping the vine image with versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder. All that is mounted onto the green card which is an uneven gate fold. I added the luscious purple bow to highlight the brick panel. The cardstock, stamps, ribbon and smooch are all available at Mark's Finest Papers. Go check it out!
