Marks Finest Papers' April Blog Hop- CAMELLIA

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

April Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Here is the card I did with this stamp set for today:
Featured April 18

Using Versamark and white glitter embossing powder, I stamped and heat embossed my flower. This is a nice sparkle that I couldn't quite get pictured.

To color this pretty flower, I used Tim Holdtz distress markers and did a quick and easy watercolor technique. Items needed, markers, water pen and clear stamp block. All I did was color a little on the stamp block with the aqua pen, I picked up the color and applied it to the flower.
 Hope you like this, I am definitely going to try the water color technique again.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
