MFP July Blog Hop Day#2




Hello! Welcome to the July 2011 MFP New Releases Blog Hop!

This week's new releases are: Little Birds With Big Mouths, Planted with Love, Lilacs in the Summer, and Adirondack Summer.For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: Planted With Love? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!)

For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Planted With Love. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's blog post.

Today's featured set is "Planted with Love" and I just love this set!!!!!!! My card and matching evie was colored with Copic's and the back ground is sponged using Memento ink pads. I sponged this in the same manner as when I did the sun rays using a different direction and different colors. I then cut it in half and mounted it to black CS. Sizzlit branch die and MFP CS. The seeds are the leftovers from Nestablities Fleur de lis pendent. I just glued them on.

Be sure to check out the rest of the team as they have some fabulous creations to show you!
Also the photo in the header is from a card I made using this set.
