Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

May Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Tiger Lily Tree Frogs
Here is my take using these two stamps. The first one is the Tiger Lily. I did the emboss resist tech. One of my favorites and every easy to do. 

  • emboss image with black embossing powder and heat gun
  • pick color markers, for this tech, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers work the best.
  • Scribble marker over clear stamp block
  • using water pen (or paint brush) pick up ink and color image.


Next is the Tree Frog Stamp Set:
I used color pencils and OMS for this image. Using Bic markers, I scribbled the green background and did some doodle framing in black.

Hope to see you tomorrow for our last hop project.

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
