This is my card for today’s release of the new set “Christmas Postage Due” from Mark’s Finest Papers.
http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/the-2034/*Christmas-Postage-Due-Stamp/Detail


I love the stamp images and sentiments in this fun set. LOVE the Santa stamp....

I inked the image with Palette Noir and colored with Copic markers.

The fun on Santa’s hat is made with Stickles/Frosted Lace.

I also added some Crystal Effects to his glasses for the lenses.

The DP is Echo Park paper.

For the matting on the stamp I used some stamp edging scissors.

I added three thin ribbons of different patterns and tied in knots at different intervals


Hi! Everyone, this is my card for the release of the set “Bold and Free” from Mark’s Finest Papers.
http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/the-2035/*Bold-%26-Free-Stamp/Detail


I used the beautiful image of the mighty buffalo surrounded by a wreath of leaves.

I colored the image with Copic markers and line cut the image.

The colors for this card are blue, darkest brown, dark yellow and rust.

I used a plain oval Nestie to mount my image on and the framed it with a beaded oval Nestie.

For one of my three panels I used my CB and embossed bubbles onto the dark yellow paper.

I added some rawhide string, beads and feathers to finish my card.

I really love this set and I know you will too.

All of the supplies except “the feathers, beads and rawhide string” can be found at Mark’s Finest Papers Store. http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/StoreFront

Happy Hopping, Nicole
