It's another fabulous Tuesday morning...hopefully the day won't bring another crazy heavy rainstorm. Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we don't have a sketch, but a judged challenge...to make a detachable bookmark. We have a fabulous sponsor today and my apologies to the Doodle Pantry, I did not read Melissa's email closely and forgot to grab one of your freebies to make today's project.
When I started thinking about this project I panicked. I've never done this!! I turned to Splitcoast Stampers for a tutorial. Well I don't have the fancy machine they used to get a perforated edge. Then some friends suggested using a paper piercing tool to make the perforation and I tried that and made a mess. So I settled on making a corner bookmark and I thought it was going to be hard. Was I ever wrong! I loved making the corner bookmark it was so simple and fast.
For my card and bookmark I used the stamp set From the Desk Of by Flourishes. I bought this set because I saw the most amazing card from Heather Jensen using the set and I just had to have it. I think the set of books with the daisies is the perfect image for a bookmark. I thought about making the card with the exact same image so that when the receipient takes off the bookmark they still have the same image on the card, but I loved the vase with the flower blossoms that I had to ink them up too!! The bookmark fits perfectly on any one of the corners of the card, but I am going to put in on the inside corner of the card so when it gets opened up there's a surprise.
Aren't these DPs delicious!! I loved the sketch at The Sweet Stop: SSS116 and decided to use their sketch to display these beautiful papers and stamp set. I did add the one element to the Sweet Stops sketch and that was the bookmark, I hope they don't mind.
I can't wait to see what you all make. Thanks for stopping by.
