EASY PEASY, Right?

   So now.... on to my card:


I just love these bookmarks and dies and could not wait to play with them and make a pocket card!!  For my creation I used the Bookmark Trees and Bookmark Verses and Bookmarks Prayers (sentiment stamped on the inside of the card. The bookmarks were cut out with the new Bookmark Dies released today exclusively at Our Daily Bread Designs. The designer paper is Retired Walk in the Park Dp from Stampin Up. The ribbon is May Arts Satin ribbon.  The image on the front of the card is framed with the Petite Ovals from Spellbinders, the Floral Doily Accents (border which was cut apart and pieced), and the Ironwork Accents.  The butterfly is Cheery Lynn Small Exotic Butterfly dies cut out of Baja Breeze dp with some added sparkle.



 On the front of the card I took one of the images from Bookmark Trees stamp set and stamped it twice.  I cut out the bottom of the oval on one of my stamped images, flipped it over and traced the outline onto the top of my image to create the oval shape. The dp framing around the image is sewn.


The inside of my card uses the Labels 18 dies from Spellbinders and the Floral Doily Accents.




Here are the new releases I used for my first creation:






My second creation is one I shared for a sneak peek yesterday:




This creation uses Bookmarks Eagles and Bookmarks Verses from  Our Daily Bread Designs.  While the Bookmarks Eagles is a bookmark shape, I masked my image and stamped leaves around the rectangle and isolated the bird. The verse is frame with Romantic and Classic Rectangles from Spellbinders.  The background is embossed with a Birds and flowers folder from Cuttlebug.  The leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart Leaf and Twig punch as well as the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.


Here are the stamp sets used for this creation:






Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creations!! For more inspiration, the next stop on the hop is the exceptionally talented Sandee.


Have a blessed Day!!!


hugs and blessings,

Enjoyed your "sneak peek" yesterday and love the fabulous card with the bookmark. You made every aspect of that card absolutely lovely. Thank you for the inspiration!

kathi17 said...

Both of your cards are beautiful Chris, I was admiring your second one last night, but didn't have enough time to comment.

I was also really disappointed that the new releases were bookmarks, but you and the other girls have shown me that I definitely do want them.

Now I am wanting to use them to make cards with a little gift of a bookmark/tag for people in our nursing home. What a lovely gift that would be for residents who don't get visitors!

Rachel Brooks said...

Thank you for the details of your offering. Love your clip on bookmark especially! Have to have these items. There goes the budget - AGAIN!

Hi Chris~

What a STUNNING job you did on both projects! I love the card with the bookmarks...sensational! I was happy to see the last photo on the 1st project. When I looked at the die-cut, I couldn't figure out how it was a bookmark. Now, I see how nice it is, and how it works! Wonderful! Thanks! I love the bookmarks!

Your sneakpeek project is beautiful! I love the dramatic colors and how nicely you used the sketch! Both of these are so beautiful...and a great way to share His Word!

He IS Able!
