Hello August! When you need a bookmark, the Bird’s Eye View stamp set is perfect for making one! It has darling birds who can wear glasses, and stand on a stack of books.
I began by stamping one of the birds on Thick Basic White Cardstock in Memento Black Ink, and used a Tailor Made Tags die for cutting. Then, I used the small, “hole” die to decorate the hole with Bubble Bath Cardstock.
I found the colors for my bookmark in the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack: Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly, and Azure Afternoon. Isn’t the ribbon beautiful?
The book mark was reinforced, on the back, with Bubble Bath Cardstock, cut with the same Tailor Made Tag die. Then, I tied Azure Afternoon ribbon through the hole, which will look pretty while marking your place in a book.
The bird and books were fun to color with Stampin’ Blends in the three colors: Bubble Bath, Azure Afternoon, and Lemon Lolly. Yes, I wore “reading” glasses while coloring. LOL!
The bird said she felt like an owl, wearing these glasses, and wanted to say “woo-hoo!” We found it in the Charming Sentiments stamp set, and had just enough room to add it to the bottom of the bookmark.
I was inspired by The Paper Players, using the middle row across, “feminine, die cuts, yellow.”
