Marks Finest Papers Sneak Peek - a bit late!

Its time for a Mark's Finest Papers  Sneak Peek!  Actually the time was yesterday but I am running late (seeming to be a theme these days), but better late than never!

For this post I'd like to highlight the extra and mini sets that are included with the August stamp release. First is the extra set called "Lucky You".


So many lovely images to choose from.  This is what I came up with:




With these Asian themed sets I can't seem to resist the colour scheme of red black and gold.  For this card I had fun playing with my new opaque white marker.  I really love the effect of the white ink with the gold embossing.


The second set I'm showing you is the mini called "Take Time".  


On my next post you'll see that this set is a great compliment to the set being featured for day one of the hop.  For now I'll show you two cards I came up with. I didn't intend to use light blue on each but appearently I like that colour!

I love the combination of the satin and burlap ribbons!  :)

I hope you liked my cards today!  You can find these sets at Mark's Finest Papers store, and I will shortly have my post up for Day #1 of the hop. See you then!

I love how you used the pins in the bottom card! The squiggle lines is great in the middle card.

I love that lucky cat card! The gold embossing is a great touch!

Beautiful cards Cathy! I think black, gold and red is just perfect for the Asian themed cards!
