MFP October Blog Hop - Cracked Hello

Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's 
   October Blog Hop! 


This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Christmas Selections Featured October 23
Poinsettia Blooms Featured October 24
Cracked Hello Featured October 25
On The Fly Featured October 26

I am pleased we have another background stamp as I sometimes like to layer images and I have played around with the background along with a couple of different stamp sets 
Cracked Hello Watermark


My first card uses the rose bud from Love Remains, which I masked before stamping the cracked earth background.  The sentiment is also from today's Cracked Hello set.  I am entering this for the Daring Cardmakers Happy challenge.
My second card uses the elephant from the set called Wild and Free and sentiments from an old retired set (sorry!)  The tree paper is from Papermania.    









My third and last card just uses the butterfly from today's set along with Dogwood Blossoms.  I have used the colours (Blush, Coral, White, Sahara Sand, Grey) from this week's Jugs challenge 159.

  3. Three lovely cards. I think I'm in love with the cracked background stamp. I really like your butterflies, did you colour directly on the stamp with markers to do this? cheers Linda
