Marks Finest Papers August Blog Hop- Day 3

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

August Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Thanks for stopping by for day 3! We are playing with our keys today. Unfortunately, I always seem to misplace mine. But these keys are not going anywhere, lol.

I wanted to try a Clean and Simple Card. There is a tutorial on MFPS ning site
(a whole list of fabulous tutorials over there!!!) using a clear stamp block so instead I thought to try something different.  I used a pink BIC marker to scribble a background color and then framed it in with a die cut.

I did the sweet matching lock on the inside of the card.

My Card Tip: Use a Pearl Pen to simple dots. You can make them any size you want, small or larger and it keeps it puffy form when it dries. An A+ recommendation for your scrap desk.

Hope to see you tomorrow for our last day!!!!
