Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers Stamp Shop
 January Blog Hop. 

 We're doing something different to start out the new year. We're looking back at all the wonderful sets released in 2014. For the next 4 days the Design Team will show you their "Favorite" sets of 2014. Please visit each blog and leave a comment. One person will be chosen to receive their choice of one of the "Favorite" Stamp Sets we have featured.

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win a "Favorite" Set of your choice! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) The winner will be announced on 
Jan. 31, 2015 on the MFP Stamp Shop blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!) 
The deadline for 
commenting is 10 PM EST on Friday Jan. 30, 2014

Who doesn't love a rainbow!!. I took watercolor paper and brushed the colors of the rainbow over it at an angle. I love how it turned out. Go on over and make a rainbow!! My butterflies were stamped and cut out before attaching to the background.

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 244

Here is a great technique. Glue die cuts onto your cardstock background. Put it into an embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug, or whatever machine you use. Go on over and try it out.
Cool looking don't you think. I used vellum.
