Spring is Here

Hi! Is spring really here? I'm ready!! I finally got to play with my stamps today and made some corner bookmarks for some challenges.
I used this really adorable stamp set from Flourishes that I just got and couldn't wait to try. I colored the bunny with Prisma Pencils and cut the image out. To keep with Joan's challenge I used a envelope and Spellbinders border for the edge right through both sides. The DP is "My Mind Eye" The Stamp is by Flourishes " Spring Has Sprung".

Here is a view of the the back. (Can you tell this is a old book?)

I had so much fun and wanted to try a different border, so here is another bookmark using the same stamp set. I used the largest die of Spellbinders Lattice rectangles.

This is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge to make a Easter card or project. I think this would be a nice Easter gift with a book. Also I'm entering this in Joan's Gardens challenge.
  • Create a corner bookmark using the corner cut off an envelope. You can use an envelope from "junk" mail.
  • You need to cover the front and back
  • Be creative and let us see what you can come up with.
  • Tutorial will be Selma's blog for cutting measurements
Well this was really easy to make but now I need to clean up the mess I made. (looks like I made 10 cards)
Hope your day is going well and thanks for stopping by.
