Monday, October 20, 2014 Projects

Today I'm sharing a couple of projects I created using stamps from  The first project is a notecard box and notecards using the Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Stamp set SKU #AKC-000012.

The notecard box was created using the Mini Pizza Box tutorial found on Splitcoaststampers.  The box is 4x4 inches square and will hold notecards that are 3 7/8 inches square.

I used large index cards as the card base!  Folded in half then cut to size, corners rounded and layered with cardstock and designer paper.
Here's the ensemble all together and ready to give as a gift to a Yorkie lover!
My second project uses the Designer Travel Handbag Couture digi stamp found at shop.  I used the bag image to create a luggage/bag tag!  The base of the tag is a plastic name badge holder; the backside of the insert has ID info; I used my crop-a-dile to punch a few extra holes at the top of the holder to tie ribbon and include a chain so the holder can be attached to any piece of luggage or bag!

MFP Oriental Sketch Challenge #56

Every other Saturday we will have a new challenge sketch for you at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. Oriental Sketch Challenge.
Here is the sketch for Challenge #56:

For my card I used White card base, a black cardstock layer, then a rust colored layer that I embossed with a Lifestyle Embossing folder.  I used a piece of patterned paper from my scrap bin for the narrow strip.  The image and sentiment are from the MFP Buddha stamp set.  I colored the image using Copic markers.  Spellbinders circle and square dies were used and the sentiment was stamped and then die cut using the SU Bitty Banners die.
We hope you'll play along and share your Oriental card creation using the above sketch with us at MFP Oriental Sketch Challenge.  If you do, you'll be entered to win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers!  You can find the sketch HERE.

MFP Simple Salutations Challenge #116 - Things with Wings!

The challenge for the next two weeks at Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations Challenge is to create a card using the theme "things with wings."
For my card I used the MFP Hello Butterflies set; stamped the butterfly using Memento black ink, colored it using Copic markers, then fussy cut it out.  I then layered two coordinating pieces of patterned paper, cut a slit in the top layer and rolled it back to expose the roses.  I then layered the butterfly in a "strategic" position to cover up the little tear in the paper that happened while I was rolling the cut flaps.
We hope you'll play along with the Simple Salutations Challenge; if you do you'll be entered to win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.
