It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's a designer's choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built. It's Donna's turn to give us the challenge and she wants us to make anything but a card.
I love to give books as gifts at Christmas so this year I've made some bookmarks using lots of Repeat Impressions Stamps. These are the stamps I used #4603-F "Got Snow" , # 8914-E Snowflake Solid, 8916-F "Snowflake Outline", 8805-K "Snow Flakes", #8808-E "Knit Cap Penguin (sm), #2012-H Poinsettia, #4715-K "Snow Light", and 2714-D "Small Pine Forest". This was such a fun project and I hope you'll be inspired to play along with Donna's challenge.
I used an old banner/tag nesting die I've had for'evah and used it to cut card stock bases, then using the next layer die, I cut various design papers and sewed them to the cs base. What doesn't show, I covered the backs with other designer papers in order to cover the stitching and make the bookmarks look finished. Pieces of ribbon and trim were added to the bookmarks. Lots of scraps were used up making these, how great is that?
You don't need dies to create bookmarks. Get creative and join the anything but a card challenge this week at THE HOUSE. Entering is easy, just check out the details and play along!
