Little Reader Trio……

Welcome OCS and HH fans;

Have you ever wondered what else you can do with a stamp.  I love it when a stamp is very versatile and multiple items can be created with.  Such is the case with my post for today.  Using the Little Reader from High Hopes Stamps, I made a set which includes a card, a bookplate and a bookmark.

The Little Reader was stamped three times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on XPress It Blending Cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.  I found a quote by Dr. Seuss as well as an Anonymous quote that fit very well with what I was wanting to achieve.

Card

Bookplate

For the Bookplate, I used another High Hopes Stamp, called Book Belongs To and cut the image out using  the Spellbinders Labels Seven die, which is shaped like an open book. I added a peel off strip to create a border.

Bookmark

The bookmark is 2 1/2″ by 6 1\2″.  I used the same green cardstock that was used for the card and bookplate.  The darker green paper has a shimmer to it and is from my stash of paper that I got on a trip to England a few years ago.  The image and sentiment were both cut using the Spellbinders Large Labels die, with the 2nd quote mounted between the two. Small Rhinestones were added to the corners, along with some green and white twine.

The Best of Things………

Welcome OCS fans;

I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and had a chance to enjoy the Canada Day festivities.

For today’s card, I have used several techniques and different mediums.  The stamp I used is called The Best of Things from High Hopes Stamps.  I coloured this with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.  The main background paper is a piece of sheet from one of Heidi Swapp’s paper pads that was foiled using the Minc Machine and Holographic Reactive Foil.  The strip of paper on the left hand paper was created using a Tim Holtz stencil called Trellis.   Lilac Lavendar and Spring Green Nuvo Mousse were used to add colour.  Doing this was trial and error.  The mousse which has a pearlescent effect has a creamy and smooth like butter texture.  I found it went on quite nicely if I used a piece of cut and dry foam instead of a spatula.

Supplies used:
