Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop - Day 1

Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our FIRST Blog Hop! How could we make it a REAL celebration? How about giving away some Blog Candy? For your chance to win, visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs today and tomorrow. Then, on Friday, a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 7 blogs both days. The winner will receive 2 BRAND NEW Stamp Sets, 5 packages of Mark's Finest Papers and 5 Satin ribbons! And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers! The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog on Friday.


I had been looking for a stamp with Christmas sheet music on it when I saw Flourishes’ Christmas Music. I stamped the music with Palette Noir Black on Snow Storm Smooth cs and matted the panel in Egyptian Gold and Ripened Tomato. After scoring the large white panel using my Scor-Pal, I sponged Palette Moulin Rouge around the edges, and then matted it with gold and placed it on the red cardbase. I was so happy to see that Flourishes’ Fancy Labels matched some of my Spellbinders labels dies – this one fits very nicely into Labels Four. I added some pretty satin ribbon and a drum charm.

The paper, ink, charm, and Flourishes images are available at Mark’s Finest Papers.

Make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the DT and comment on each Blog for your chance to win all the goodies!
