Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop- Day 1

Welcome to the MFP January Blog Hop! This month, we are releasing 4 NEW SETS!


And…LOOK for the WINNERS of the Blog Hop on Saturday!

Our New Sets are: In the Forest, Happy Pansies, Sew What, and Floral Tea.  For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, January 15, 2011, a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

Today we are featuring the "In the Forest" stamp set:
For this month's blog hop, I decided not to make traditional size cards.  Today, I used the "In the Forest" stamp set to make a three-inch card and a coordinating gift bag.  I made the gift bag with an Accucut die, but there are several tutorials online about how to make your own bags without a special die.  For the card and bag, I stamped the bunny in black ink onto SU's Blushing Bride card stock.  The other papers used are SU's Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz.  For the gift bag, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the bag, and a Martha Stewart punch to make the grass.  I completed each project by adding ribbon that I purchased for in the dollar bin at Michael's.  This bunny stamp is so versatile, especially with Easter and Spring around the corner.

I am not on the blog hop list today, so head over to the Mark's Finest Paper's Blog to see the lineup for today's hop.

Be sure to join us tomorrow for day 2 of the Blog Hop!
