Mark's Finest Papers

So this month I have the honor of guest designing for a great paper and stamp company called Mark's Finest Papers. On June 8th they will release 4 new stamp sets, have a blog hop, and officially announce me as guest designer. But, just because I like all of you so much, I'm giving you a sneak peak of this month's releases. There are 4 stamp sets, and I have 1 card created with each one. When you come back next week for the blog hop I'll have 4 new projects for you to check out as well.

Up first is my favorite of the sets:This set is seriously delish. Ok, so here's where I admit that I can be a little weird at times. I love working with kraft as a neutral, but I'm really picky about what kraft paper I use. I was over the moon when I got this kraft paper from MFP. The color is perfect, and it even has little flecks of color throughout it that make it look like linen. Love it!

Up next is a card that showcases the beautiful ribbons I received along with one of the new stamp sets:The shades of blue these ribbons come in make me giddy!

Now I've got another kraft colored card:I water colored the flowers with watercolor pencils to add a pop of purple and green to the card.

Finally I created a card to send to the vets who took such good care of our dog (and us) during his last days:The patterned paper is from Basic Gray's Max and Whiskers 6x6 paper stack, which you can also find at MFP.

Everything on today's blog (papers, card stock, stamps) can be found at Mark's Finest Papers. You won't be disappointed with the quality of these stamps, these are some of the best clear stamps I've used. I got a clean, crisp image every time, even when using pigment ink! I hope you'll join me next week for the June release blog hop, I've saved my favorite projects for then. In the mean time, you can check out Mark's Finest Papers' blog by clicking here.
