Tuesday Taggers Guest Designer Today!!

I get to be a guest designer today at Tuesday Taggers!  I won their May 18th challenge and they asked if I"d like to be their guest designer for June 15th, you bet!   I was asked to make a vintage bookmark.

I absolutely love the vintage look and feel, I don't use it very often on my cards anymore so this was fun!  I stamped a Neenah Solar white scrap of card stock with the Stampin' Up! Victorian Lace background stamp in Palette Cognac ink then stamped the Stampin' Up! French Script background stamp over it in Memento Cocoa ink.   Next I stamped the Photo Print by Stampington & Co. onto another scrap of Papertrey Ink Premium White cardstock with Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Craft Ink.  My new craft ink pad was dry so the clear embossing powder doesn't have the shine I was going for after heating it but vintage stuff is usually matte finish anyway.  I then stamped over that with the Stampin' Up! Linen background stamp in Palette Cognac stamped off once. 

The old family photos I have are matted and framed often in ovals so I chose a Spellbinder's Oval Nesties die to cut out the center of my rectangle that I'd rounded the corners on.  The inside of that oval was used for the top of the tag, I trimmed off part of it and attached it, punched a hole in it and added May Arts dotted organdy and a little piece of tea dyed gingham.  The finishing touch was four Want2Scrap half pearls and a bow made from the May Arts dotted organdy.  My kids were working at the table with me and didn't mind holding two of my Copic markers to tie the bow around.  

I hope you enjoyed my bookmark, now head on over to Tuesday Taggers and join the fun!
