First, I'd like to apologize to all of my followers for being absent this summer...it has been busy with the kids at home, and camping, and weddings, and reunions, and shopping for back to school...
I've really mised my crafting time, and now that school has started again and our routine is somewhat back to normal, I hope to get back into my craft room!
Today is Sept.1, and that means a new challenge from Paper Cubed!
The challenge this month is to make a Book Mark! Here's what I came up with:
CTMH D1306 Treasure Life My Acrylix Stamp
CTMH X7090B Silhouette Paper Pack (retired)
CTMH Z1300 Just Blooms Paper Flowers
CTMH Z1034 Designer Ribbon Rounds Black Collection
CTMH Inks in Z2105 Black, ZZ2163 White Daisy, Z2118 Desert Sand
Spiral clip, Brad and eyelet in pewter
I first stamped a dandylion flower image in white pigment ink onto bamboo cardstock, then I stamped the verse in black ink over top. I matted it onto black cs, then layered it onto a printed background paper, then another piece of black cs. The finished dimension of this book mark is 8cm x 20cm.
I then embellished it with some paper flowers, spiral clip, brad and eyelet. I kept the embellishments fairly flat. I threaded a length of ribbon through the eyelet, and secured it with a very tight black bead.
Join us for this month's challenge! Just pop over to Paper Cubed, check out the rest of the talented design team's fabulous creations for inspiration, and play along! You could win a Martha Stewart punch!
