Card Recognition

Etsy inspired bookmark


This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge has a great little shop called La Pomme.  I was inspired by Savannah's card.  While I don't have any musical background craft supplies, I had been playing with my new PTI Book Print Impressions plate and loved the idea of an embossed letters background.  Jenny and the gang at Wee Memories are playing with Twine this week, so let's add this bookmark to their challenge too.  Mark's Finest Papers is celebrating embossing this week, hope you guys like my bookmark, sorry it's not a card.

I have been watching some videos on You Tube to try to figure out how to use my Big Shot and my 5 year old son decided that he wanted to make a video of my project.  He has this camera so the quality is pretty poor.  But I love that he wanted to take part in my project. 



Materials: Practicing Creativity The Whole Cycle Wheelbarrow, PTI Kraft, PTI bookmark die, PTI Book Print impressions plate, Versacolor Camellia ink, black ink, The Twinery Maraschino twine

Future film maker/screen writer on your hands? Cute video to match the cute tag. You are brave to stamp after you emboss.
