Workshop Book Markers

Hi, Crafters.

I had a couple of hours of "me" time today and had a manicure and a
pedicure. I think everybody deserves a bit of pampering now and again, don't you?

My time in my studio today
 has seen me experimenting
making book markers. 
I used the Stampin' Up!
Scalloped Tag Topper
punch to cut out the base.
The colour I used is Hello Honey.

I used the Pleasant Poppy background stamp for the two Hello Honey book markers. It's not often that I paint - although I love doing it - once I get started, I don't like to stop! I used the Hardwood background stamp and stamped off once before stamping on the front of the base. I did the same on the back but without stamping off - hence it is much, much darker. I stamped 3 butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set using Hello Honey
 ink on Hello Honey card stock and then punched them out. I adhered
 them flat onto the poppies. I don't agree with making book markers 
3D as they are going to be crushed inside a book.

I used the same card stock and poppy stamp for the second book marker. I changed the ink for the poppies and used 
So Saffron instead.  I stayed with the Hello Honey ink for the
 En Francais background stamp I used behind the poppies. As before, 
I stamped 3 butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri  stamp set but on 
Whisper White card stock, punched them out and adhered 
them to the poppies. On the back, I stamped with the En Francais 
stamp in Hello Honey ink, stamped 3 butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri 
stamp set using Hello Honey ink on Hello Honey card stock 
and then punched them out. 

Hopefully, I'll get more time tomorrow to work on some more. 
I don't think I will use either of these book markers for my workshops 
as there is too much work involved for the amount of time we have.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Crafters.
