SNSS August Release Mini Hop Day 1

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps August
Release Mini Hops showcasing the new
stamps and die set!  Today we're highlighting the fabulous 
Bookmarks 
and
Bookmarks and More Dies

I was so excited to see that Korin had designed these sets, probably because I'm a book fanatic!
I love libraries and book stores, I've got stacks of books beside my bed,
and my bookshelves are overflowing!



For the first bookmark, I covered thick cardstock with dp for the base and then
 added some paper pieced red airplanes and then added a cloudy sky using
I had no black twine so I used black copic ink to dye a bit for the bow. 
 For a bookmark that will get a little bit of everyday wear and tear, 
I use a match to heat "seal" the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.
Carefully, I might add!  Some ribbon seals well, but a few types are prone to catch fire!


For the second bookmark I sponged the base with Stampin Up Pool Party 
and a sun using the Beach Dies set.  
I also added some grass using the SNSS Fence and Grass Die set.
The seam binding was dyed to match with copic ink.
I coloured the little toadstools with copics.
Almost all of the elements on my bookmarks are flat, 
not popped up, so that they 
don't damage the binding or pages of the books.


My third project is a fun card to go along with a gift of a stack of children's books.
The images were coloured with copics and some are popped up.
I added some dots with a black fine line pen.

My samples only touch on what can be done with these sets,
 the possibilities are truly endless,
 I've got loads more ideas, all I need now is some time to try them out!
