Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set makes lovely bookmarks ready to be inserted into the Spring/Summer Catalogues. I made the bookmark/tag as part of a business challenge set by my lovely upline Mikaela. This stamp set will be available in the new Spring/Summer 2018 catalogue from the 3rd January 2018.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5½” by 2”. I punched one end of the cardstock using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch before stamping the sentiment using Momento Tuxedo Black ink towards the bottom of the tag. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig Stamp Positioning Tool to make sure I got it straight……always a challenge for me!
I mounted the ‘bow’ image onto an Acrylic Block B and the ‘bow shadow’ image onto another Acrylic Block B and began stamping from the bottom up to the top using the following ink colours: Peakaboo Peach, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzelberry, Lemon Lime Twist. I inked up each colour, stamped it off onto my Grid Paper then stamped the 2nd generation ink onto the bookmark – every colour that is with the exception of the Berry Burst where I forgot…..ooops.
I inked the ‘bow shadow’ image in the same ink and stamped it full strength to give some dimension to the image. I really liked the soft colours for this book mark.
To finish I cut a piece of Berry Burst cardstock and a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock to 5½” by 2” and punched one end of each using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I adhered the Daffodil Delight tag to the back of the stamped piece, slightly off set, using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The Berry Burst piece was then added in the same way and off set to the other side. I then glued on a business card with my details on it. I added a piece of Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon through the hole at the top and tied it together with a bow made from the Silver ⅛” Ribbon.
Happy with they way this turned out, now to make lots more ready to insert into my new catalogues when they arrive.
