Sending Happy Thoughts, today's featured set, consists of "postage stamps" using several images which are included on other Mark's Finest Papers' sets. This gives a lot of versatility to the stamps. My first card is an example of that versatility. The image on the front is from today's set, whereas the flower and bee images on the insert are from Happy Pansies.
My second card uses just the rosebud postage stamp image colored in three different shades. I cut out the postage stamps and mounted them on a piece of MFP August Greens, with a contrasting layer of Deepest Mahogany. The designer paper that is peeking out from behind is Basic Grey's Cappella -- which has that same soft green color interspersed with a darker brown. The sentiment is cut out using a Spellbinders ribbon die.
Be sure to comment on the following blogs to increase your chance of winning some stamps.
