Mark's Finest Papers October Release! ... Thankful for You



Hi! I'm not participating in today's hop, but wanted to show what I made with this set being release this week by Mark's Finest Papers. This is among my favorites from this month. I just think its a highly versatile set and there is a lot you can do with it to make pretty seasonal cards. Thanks for looking!

I chose a cream colored cardstock for my main image and using the wheat stalks, I stamped them along the right side of the paper with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped the sentiment and the corn stalks with gold craft ink and embossed it with fine detail gold embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment in black so it would show up above the wheat stalks. Then I took a variety of autumn colors from the Ranger distress inks and using a sponge, lightly applied them to various parts of the main panel.

If you're searching for the MFP blog hop, here is the first link in that hop for today:

Hi Peggysue! Not sure where you are finding the time for your card making, but hope it is keeping you sane! These are a treat for the eye, so cute (the first) and I like your wheat side embossing and addition of trims in blues and golds on the second! Hugs, friend...
