SNSS: Bookmark Bits and Pieces



Good morning!

Welcome to the first day of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps August release 'feature blog hops!'  Today we are showcasing a huge new stamp set with some coordinating new dies - which I absolutely love!  The stamp set is called Bookmark Bits & Pieces and the coordinating dies are called Bookmarks & More. 



The stamps are adorable - my favorite is that globe!! - but I thought I'd lead off my cards for today with the fabulous dies... LOVE!  As you can see, I used one of the bookmark dies for a 'banner' off the top of my card and stamped a sentiment in one of the frames.  


August Stamps used: Prim Blessings (sunflower); Decorative Frames (sentiment)


For my second project for today, I thought I'd share the bookmark I made with the set.  I die cut the bookmark and then stamped the sentiment in versafine ink.  Then, I began stamping other elements from the set, filling in wherever there was space.  Then, I added some doodling, colored the images with Copics and then shaded the edges with Versamagic chalk ink.  Then, I matted it to some matching turquoise card stock and hand cut around it to make it a bit sturdier, since I cut the original out of lighter weight white card stock.


I used a bright Basic Grey glazed button and found some coordinating baker's twine to tie a 'tassel' to the top.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I did some coloring with my clear Sakura glitter pen to some of the images for some sparkle.  I wanted it to be flat, so it could actually be used as a bookmark! lol!

Jessica, your card and bookmarks are lovely. Such a wonderful idea to use a patterned patter for the sunflower center - I like that!

And I love the mixture of colored bakers twine for the tassel on the bookmark - that really looks so cute with the brad - just prefect! Wonderful pairings today.
