Elisabeth Bell's Biggest December Blog Candy Giveaway

Have you heard about the big blog candy giveaway from Elisabeth Bell? With the help of Belles n Whistles, SCACD and Whiff of Joy, Elisabeth is giving away 38 stamps to one lucky winner. For a chance to win you need to create a project using one of Elisabeth's stamps. I created a corner bookmark using Beary Big Hugs from Bells n Whistles. This is the first time I have made a corner bookmark. I can't wait to get going on my next one. The base of my bookmark is navy blue cardstock. I punched the bottom using the lace heart border punch from Martha Stewart. The top triangle of my bookmark is covered in white cardstock, leaving just a thin strip of the navy blue showing. I added a strip of patterned paper (blue with white dots) just below the white cardstock and added a strip of light blue ribbon to cover the seam the two papers created. I stamped my image out and colored it using crayola and prisma colored pencils. Then I cut the top portion of the stamped image using a circle template. I layered the image on navy blue, then white and then finally blue. I added a large blue paper flower and a smaller blue paper flower and a bow made out of the light blue ribbon. to the right corner just beside the image. I added crystal stickles to the edges of the ribbon, bow, flowers, to the image, on the cardstock backing the image and to the dots on the patterned paper.

My daughter has already asked if she can have this bookmark. We got her some books for Christmas so I think that I will give it to her after she opens up her books.
