Hello! Welcome to the June 2011 MFP New Releases Blog Hop!
This week's new releases are: All Aboard, Poppies Poppies Poppies, Sand Surf Relax, and Floating Along.
For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.
So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: Floating Along? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!) I'm not an official part of the Blog Hop today. But I'm thankful that you stopped by to see what I did with today's set. To get the chance to win Floating Along, be sure to comment on the blogs of the team members listed below.
Some time ago I saw a tutorial for a recessed window card and thought that the large water lily would look pretty in that setting. I made the card base using MFP Lily Pad and Prima Sweet Fairy DP. The background for the water lily is a mottled cardstock called Aged Berry. After stamping and coloring the water lily, I cut it out and popped it up in the center of the "window." Then I decorated it with some pearls and the punched butterfly.
For my second card I used a layout I found on Page Maps, using DPs from the Prima Fairy Flora paper pad.
For my final look into my late husband's train memorabilia, I chose a few of the Hallmark ornaments from a set of tin trains. I hope you enjoyed that I shared some of his passion with you.
For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Floating Along. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's blog post.
