Blog Hop - Day 2

Mark's Finest Papers RELEASE Hop and....BLOG CANDY!!!
Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available TODAY! For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs on April 14th, 15th, and 16th. On Saturday, (April 17th), a winner will be chosen FOR EACH DAY from those participants who visited all 9 blogs for that day! The 3 Winners will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog. Each winner will receive 1 Stamp Set that will be released NEXT month.

Day Two of the Blog Hop features the new set Butterflies, Dianthus and Flourishes.



My first card is a long card, which are always fun. The card base is MFP Morning Sun, with a strip of Heidi Grace DP on one side – separated from the solid color with a strip of Deepest Mahogany punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. I stamped both butterflies and the medallion in Palette Burnt Umber on MFP Corn Husk and then cut them out with circle nesties. I used some Copic markers in shades of lime green.



My second card is a standard A2 card, using MFP Breezy Blue and Basic Grey Wisteria DP – a simple card, with a popped-up flower, which is colored using Copic markers.

Be sure to visit all the blogs in our hop. Starting today, each day you will have a chance to win a stamp set to be released next month. That’s three chances to win!
