Flower Patch Bookmark

  We have been quite the reading family this summer.  The boys were very excited to participate in our local library's summer reading challenge.  Not only did they get some small prizes for participating and completing the challenge they are now entered into a drawing for an iPad mini.  The  Holy Grail of the elementary age!  They are eagerly waiting to see if their school will win again this year.  I am so proud of the awesome readers they've become and it's so nice to sit outside on our patio and have everyone reading quietly....emphasis on quietly.  =)

  Since I am always reading a book my bookmarks get kind of beat up so occasionally I need to make a new one.  I designed this bookmark for my New Catalog party in June.  I wanted to show off some of the 2014-2016 In Colors and the Flower Patch stamp set.  This design would also make a nice gift tag for a birthday or thinking of you gift.

 The Crumb Cake piece is punched with the scallop tag topper punch and stamped in Crumb Cake with one of the flower shaped stamps.  The large flower was stamped off once with Hello Honey and then Tangelo Twist was used for the center.  The leaf is the solid shape stamped off once with Mossy Meadow and then the leaf shape stamped right on top in full strength Mossy Meadow.  The photopolymer is so easy to line up!  You can see right through them!

  The matching Flower Fair framelits make it super easy to cut out these images.  A few of them you just have to play with to get them lined up but it's well worth it!


  The flower and leaf are both popped up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.  The final touches are a rhinestone in the center of the flower and a length of Tangelo Twist satin ribbon through to the top and tied off.

  What good books have you read lately?  What books do your kids like?

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
