Just around the corner we have this month's Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Release. Are you ready for another month of fun stamps from Mark's Finest Papers? To get you primed for some hopping fun, I have a couple of sneak peeks of the 5th set and the mini set. To the left you are seeing a peek of the beautiful angel included in the new set entitled You Are An Angel. Isn't she lovely? My first thought was to make a bookmark with the sentiment stamped below her. I think it would make a great gift and a good way to keep your angel with you in your quiet moments. This was a pretty quick and easy project. I stamped my angel on my paper, making sure to leave enough room for my sentiment on the bottom and my jumbo eyelet on the top. I stamped my angel, colored her and then colored the rest of the bookmark around her the blue green color. What you can't really see in this photo is the mottled color of the background. I masked my angel and sprayed rubbing alcohol over the top and then let it dry. I finally finished off my card with some May Arts mini cording.
Next up, I used the Wings mini stamp set to make this four piece note card set. I stamped each of the butterfly wings beside each other and then created the bodies of the butterfly with some rhinestones. I stamped the edge of my card with the polka dot border image from Flaps My Wattles. It just had the perfect feel to me for a sweet little note card set. I wanted to complete my note card set with a few envelopes. I looked through my craft room for my small square envelopes, only to discover that they are at work. Soooo, I did what every crafter knows to do, I made some more. I whipped up four little envies with my Scor-pal, Scor-tape and some printer paper.Here are my note cards, stacked on top of the envelops and tied off with a little bit of white cording. They are ready to gift someone with some homemade goodness. Thanks for coming by again today! Be sure to come back for one more post, later on this evening if you are on the West Coast, like me, or early tomorrow morning, if you are on the East Coast! Have a great day!
