tag bookmarks

YIPPEE! We have a snow day today on a Friday!!! That just makes me happy all over, LOL! We rarely get snow, thank goodness, but to have a FRIDAY snow day is fantastic for me! I have to travel so far to work in these mountains I just can't make it! Sooooooo.......I can stamp :)
We have about 4" and it's still coming down. Mom in Mtn.View has 14" so far, unbelievable!
Well, on to my tag book marks! I love these new soon to be released Crafty Secrets sets with a reading theme to them. They would be great to make teacher gifts, librarian, anybody that loves to read, or they would be cute to use scraping a family album!
The sets I used are Book Lovers, Story of Me and Flourishes. The Flourishes set makes perfect accents on cards. I used SU! confetti cream card stock to make the tags and I punched the top corners with my tag corner punch, I used the jumbo eyelets at the top, I colored the 1st one black with my Copic marker. I used paper from the Pastel Paper Pad and metal corners from Tattered Angels and Bonnie's Best.
I used t!m holtz Grungeboard , I colored it with my Copic's too. The little guy's glasses have Glossy Accents on them to make them look like glass, and sparkles on his crown. I stamped the images with my fav Ranger Distress Walnut Stain and Black Soot ink and colored with my Copic's.
I cut the definition out of an old dictionary for wise and put it across the top of the owl bookmark. I did faux stitching with my tracing wheel and sponged the edges of everything with Walnut ink. The ribbon is by May Arts and Martha Stewart. I braided the May Arts cord on the owl card up about 2" and I sewed 2 vintage button's back to back to hold the braid in place, then I tied knots in each end of the cords.

Make sure and run over to the Crafty Secrets blog, Sandy is having a HUGE clearance sale on some of the new stamps, go check it out!!

Thanks for stopping by, happy snow day :)
