Simon Says Stamp 'This Is The Life' Release Blog Hop!

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?u=629488&b=199868&m=24698&afftrack=&urllink=www%2Esimonsaysstamp%2Ecom%2Fproducts%2Easpx%3Fid%3D1423

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp This Is The Life release blog hop!

There are so many great products being released today that cover everything from adult beverages to flowers to road trips and frozen treats! There is definitely something for everyone in this release! ;)

For my stop on the hop I'll be sharing a card and bookmark that I created with the new Floral Bookmarking stamp set and Floral Bookmarks and Bookmark It! dies. I read a ton, and even though I do a lot of it on my Kindle now, I still like reading paper books when I have the chance! ;)


I love how easy it is to create bookmarks and cards that look great together and can be used combined as a little gift. I made the bookmark first and then created the card using a similar design and colours.


I made the bookmark longer than the die actually cuts, by cutting a strip of cardstock the same width as the bookmark die and then partially diecutting only the top area so I could make it as long as I wanted.

Once I had the bookmark cut out, I added a stamped sentiment and some stamped flowers.


And then once I had the bookmark done, I decided to make a matching card as well. I used similar colours and kept the card pretty simple for a more elegant, feminine look. I love how the colours just jump off the card front! So bright and pretty!


The first video below shows how I created the bookmark and the second video shows how I created the tassel and added it to the finished bookmark.
