December Stamp Camp Part Four

Merry Christmas My Blogger Friends!
Today I will be sharing with you the last project that we made at my December Stamp Camp.  I had the Camp Gals create a bookmark and they each were able to put their own spin on their bookmark.
Here is a picture of the sample bookmark I made for them to CASE......
But their spin was to layer and create their own bookmark.  And believe it or not.....they did create some pretty amazing bookmarks for their own.
We started with a base of two layers of Cherry Cobbler Tulle Ribbon......
And added three layers of punched cardstock flowers, a 1/2" circle, a layer of Victoria Crochet Trim and a Paper Daisy Flower (page 175) for the top.
The bottom of our bookmark was a medium Vintage Faceted Designer Button.
And for the back of our bookmark we added a layer of the Blossom and 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punches.
To create a pretty shabby chic look to our flowers we sprayed our flowers and circles with water and then wrinkled all our pieces up and let them dry all wrinkled.  This gave each of our flowers a shabby chic look and helped to add lots of texture and dimension to our layers. (The trick to this step is to let each of the pieces you sprayed with water the opportunity to DRY so your adhesive can stick to the cardstock.)
OH....and one last product......The actual bookmark started with a piece of 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.  That was sandwiched between the two pieces of Cherry Cobbler Tulle Ribbon that was diecut out using the 3" Bigz die circle.
Such a pretty gift and comes together in a SNAP!  The really nice thing about making this as a gift.....You can create your bookmark in whatever color fits that someone special your making it for.
Thanks for joining me today.......Hope you have a very Happy and Merry Christmas.  I'll be back tomorrow to begin sharing some Christmas Gifts and Cards I've received this holiday season.  Keep Living Your Dream!
