Halloween Selections & Enjoy The View - A Mark's Finest Papers Bonus

Bonus?  That's right, Bonus!  Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company is offering a free mini stamp set when you purchase all four newly released sets.  The free mini set for October is called Halloween Selections.  This card showcases all the little bats included in the new mini.  They create quite a swarm here to bring you a special Halloween Boo!

This next card features a soon to be released set called Enjoy The View.  This set is the October Mark's Finest Paper's sneak release.  It's a really fun set that will totally lend itself to building scenes, but I went a different way with it today.  I used one of the tiny accent stamps to create a fun patterned grid for my card front!  I score my straight line on the bottom first and stamped my sentiment.  Then I scored my grid and stamped my accents diagonally.  Finally, I filled in the alternate diagonals with rhinestones for a bit of shine!

Be sure to stop by the Mark's Finest Papers blog to see what the other designers did with these fun new stamps!

I love the Boo card because the swarm of bats is just so creepy and perfect for Halloween, but the score line card is genius! It is so pretty and I'm slightly jealous that I didn't think of it first. Although, that said I never would have thought of it first, lol. Great idea and so pretty! You've inspired me to think outside of the box. :)
