Bookmarks

Something new I have never tried before: ribbon bookmarks--this week's Our Daily Bread Designs challenge. And I think I might be addicted, they are soooo cute! The first one is for my father for Father's Day (his favorite color is brown and I just so happened to have some nice brown grossgrain ribbon from SU!) I also tried the rock 'n roll technique for this week's Make It Monday challenge. The first side has one of the damask images from Damask Designs (PTI) and at the bottom, a sentiment from the same set. The second side has two stamps from World's Greatest by Verve and I stamped the date of Father's Day on the bottom portion. The numbers are from PTI's Fresh Alphabets set.

Since these were so fun, I made one for my Mom, too. She loves to sew and has one of these pincussions so the image from Clear Dollar stamps (part of a package to raise money for a woman named Katie) was perfect. I colored it with colored pencils, colored the pin stems with a silver pen and used black dimensional fabric paint on the pin heads. so fun! The sentiment is from the same Clear Dollar digital set and I added the stitching around the shape.






On the other side, I stamped a sentiment and image from Sweet n' Sassy stamps and added the year date on the bottome half.
