Let's get started !!
Here's the Design Team

The other day I saw a project that had "story starters". It was a bag with rocks with painted pictures on the rocks. It thought it could translate easily to paper. When I saw the little tree, I knew that was how I was going to use the tree. I made two origami boxes. One just slightly bigger than the other. I stamped the little tree on the lid. On the sides of the lid I stamped TELL, ME, A, and  STORY

I then went through my other MFP stamps and picked images to stamp on the story starter cards. 
I used quite a few different images. I stamped them with black stazon ink and I watercolored them. This story starter box is going to go to my cousin to use with her small children. 

That got me thinking that it would be fun if you guessed how many MFP sets I used to make the cards. So here is my challenge. Guess how many sets I used and let me know in your comment. The person or persons closest to the correct number will win a special blog candy prize. I will post the winner on Saturday. Good Luck guessing.


  1. Great idea. Hope they have fun with it.

  2. How fun!!! Great idea and your coloring is wonderful on all the images.

  3. Marilynn- what a fun use of the stamps!

  4. What a cool project, MariLynn! Just the thing to inspire the imagination of small children. Well, I tried to figure out how many sets you used in addition to Tree Scenes. I couldn't really see the image on the card under the lantern and the flamingo to tell what it was. But I'm going to guess that a total of 13 sets (including Tree Scene Selections) were used.

  5. Ok...first of all what a great idea for kids!!! Now for how many stamp sets you used....well I am not familiar with your stamp sets, but I am loving what I'm seeing, so I am taking a guess (bassed on what I see) that you used about 6 (SIX) different stamp sets :) Hugs...Janie

  6. Very creative. The children will love it. 14 sets.

  7. What an excellent idea!! You did a great job!

  8. Cute idea! I'm guessing
    you used 7 different sets!

  10. This is a fantastic idea. I'm going to guess 9 sets. What fun. Hugz

  11. I am going to guess 15 sets - love your wee project MariLynn and how you have presented it. I may have to copy it for my grand children :-)
