Some Cards and Bookmarks


Hello and happy Saturday.  Hope your weekend is going well.

I've got 2 cards and a bunch of bookmarks to share today.  I finally got a chance to pull out some of my Altenew stamps and play along in their gigantic Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop.  I was inspired by the Fall Floral graphic at Curtain Call.  I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Clean and Simple.





Something a little different for me--I inked up an old impression plate and used it to dry emboss a card front.  I just love the detail in the Mehndi impression plate, and the ink makes it so easy to see. My sentiment--stamp and die--are from PTI Pretty Peonies which is 4 years old.


I am entering this card at Retro Rubber #47: Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps and More #211: Anything Goes.




Last up is a bunch of bookmarks I made, using Avery Elle This Book.  I just had fun masking, stamping and coloring.  I will be entering the first bookmark at The Card Concept #57: Rainbow. Honestly, I have no idea how to categorize the style.



Here are the fronts of the batch cut from the PTI Bookmark Die


And, here are the backs



Here are a couple more, using different bookmark dies.






Thanks for Visiting
