Mark's Finest Papers August Release: Tweet Blessings

Mark's Finest Papers' Design Teams are celebrating our NEWEST STAMP RELEASE with a Blog Hop. Our very talented Design Teams have created exciting paper crafts for your inspiration. With the addition of New Design Team members to inspire you, this is going to be a really fun-packed Hop!

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released today: Tweet Blessings, Flourished Sea Creatures, Regal & Proud, and Owl Be Here. For your convenience, all 4 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 on August 10, 11, 12, and 13, 2010. On Saturday, (August 14, 2010), a winner will be chosen FOR EACH DAY from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for that day. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day.)

THAT MEANS IF YOU MISSED A DAY, YOU STILL HAVE OTHER CHANCES WIN! And, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

For this first set we're showcasing today I just fell in love with the little birdhouse image. It reminds me of so many things; the cuckoo clock my grandmother bought me when I was little that hung on my bedroom wall, the elaborately decorated sugar cookies we make each Christmas.

For this first card I used the cookie image because stamped in white on brown paper it reminds me so much of a frosted cookie, especially when you pair it up with a bit of liquid pearls for extra dollops of 'frosting.'



For this next card, this is one I previewed for a technique lover's challenge on splitcoast stampers, but hadn't yet posted it on my blog. This is a t-slide card and once again, the birdhouse image reminds me so much of a cuckoo clock. For this card I paper pieced the image and then put the sentiment on the inside of the slider.



Hope you enjoy hopping! Here is the hop order for this release, for Tuesday, August 10-Tweet Blessings
