Hello and welcome back!
There is still time to join the Inky Paws challenge over on the Newton’s Nook blog! This challenge is a theme challenge, and it’s all about tags! It’s the perfect challenge for the holiday season – especially if you are like me and still haven’t finished your holiday cards!
For this set of tags, I decided to take a break from the holidays and make some bookmarks that can also function as tags for presents! I started by stamping the images from the new All Booked Up Stamp Set and colored it with my Copic markers in the following colors:
Cat: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3,W2
Red Books: R59, R39, R37, R35, R32, R30
Pink Books: RV21, RV32, RV55, RV66, RV25, RV23, RV21
Orange Books: YR09, YR07, YR04, YR14, YR12, YR21
Yellow Books: Y38, Y35, Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00
Dog: E41, E42, E44, E55, E57, E59
Green Books: G29, G07, G24, G43, G02, G00
Turquoise Books: BG49, BG45, BG32, BG11, BG10
Blue Books: B18, B16, B14, B02, B00
Indigo Books: BV24, BV11, BV01, BV00, BV00
Violet Books: V09, V07, V17, V15, V04, V01
Next, I die cut my images with the coordinating dies and cut two bookmarks and two flags out of white card stock using the Bookmark Die Set. I decided I wanted to add a little bit of color to the background of the bookmarks, so I die cut the Bookmark Die out of a piece of rainbow polka dot paper I had from Lawn Fawn.
To continue with the color themes I had going, I inked up both of the flags in either yellow or purple ink – I used Gina K Wild Dandelion and Catherine Pooler Serene. On each banner, I heat embossed sentiments from the All Booked Up Stamp Set using black embossing powder.
To assemble the tags, I glued the flags to the back of the book stacks so the flags were peeking out from the bottom of the books. Then, I adhered those to the bookmarks. To finish them off, I tied some white ribbon with an iridescent shimmer to the tops of the bookmarks.
Thanks for stopping by!
