Mark's Finest Papers

WOW! What an AWESOME day yesterday was. I am so impressed with the design teams creations. Welcome to day two of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. December Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing two new stamp sets; Pussy Willow and Ice & Snow.


These are some really fun sets and so versatile. My first project is using Ice & Snow. I incorporated this project with Split Coast Stampers Try a New Technique challenge from this Monday. I took a plain brown paper bag with handles and I stamped the snowflake image in two different inks; Brilliance Moonlight White and  Sky Blue. I then stamped my images onto two different die cut and put glitter on my icicles and my tree image. I then took blue chalk and dusted the sky on the tree image. I then mounted it to my bag. I also mounted my sentiment to one side of the bag on a different die cut. Then I took blue and white felt ribbon and wrapped the handles. I finished off the bag with some snowflake brads and a handmade paper bow. I hope you like my bag.

Now for my second card I used Pussy Willow. I also incorporated the color challenge from SCS today. I am using Deep Olivem Cherry Slush, Tan, Cream and DP for this card. This is a new Zig Zag card that I tried from Technique Junkies Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts from their 2010 CD. I stamped my image and sentiments with Bravo Burgundy ink. I finished off the card gems and flowers. I hope you like my card and bag. Thanks for stopping and commenting on my creations today. Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for the last day. If you forgot to comment any day make sure you do it before tomorrow to be entered to win one of these great stamp sets. Have a blessed day.
