Sweet Stamps Anything But a Card Challenge

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is Anything But A Card.

 Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.
For the challenge today, I decided to make a book mark.  I got some new stamps from Sweet Stamps at the Westminister Stamp Show last weekend, and decided to use them.  I used 4 stamps on my book mard today.  On the Front of my book mark, I used "Stuffed Duck", "Rain" and "Puddle".  I stamped Stuffed Duck onto Cryogen white Card stock and then stamped it again onto printer paper to create a mask.  I laid the mask on top of my image on the card stock and stamped the puddle using Klondike Blue Shades dye Ink.  I kept the mask over my Duck and stamped the Rain also using Klondike Blue Shades dye Ink several times so it looks like Stuffed Duck is in the rain....  I then colored Stuffed Duck with my Copics and the puddle too.  I then stamped "Under the Weather" sentiment onto another piece of Cryogen White Card Stock in black ink.  I used my Cheery Lynn Inverted Scalloped Coved Rectangle Stacker dies to cut out my colored Stuffed Duck and my sentiment.  I traced around the die to get my mat's.  I then layered them together and attached a piece of ribbon between my blue layers.

Here is a peek at the back of my Book Mark:

When I was sick and in the hospital 2yrs ago for emergency surgery, my sister brought me some books to read while I was in the hospital recovering from my surgery.  So I thought this would be a great thing to give with a book or magazine to someone who is sick.  It sure would cheer them up !!!!

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by,
