Cascading Card and a Sneak Peek

Last year one of the Technique Lovers' Challenges on Splitcoaststampers was a very cool technique -- a cascading card.  I've been itching to make another one for a while.  Today was the day I scratched that itch.  I thought one of the new sets from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, Asian Delights, would lend itself to this technique.

I stamped several of the images from this set, cut them out, and strategically placed them on the card, along with some cherry blossom ribbon I happened to have.  The parasol was a royalty-free photo I found on the internet.

You can see the cascading effect on this side view.

This pretty stamp set, along with four others, will be available starting on Tuesday.  Be sure to check the Blog Hop all next week to see how you can win some free stamps.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Asian Delights
Paper:  Bazzill 12 x 12 Black, MFP Snow Storm Smooth
