Happy Tuesday, friends!
I’m sure I’m not the only person who looks forward to summertime reading! I used to read so much when I was younger, but I find these days I really have to make an effort and take time to read. All too often, when I finally do take the time I end up using a piece of junk mail or a receipt for my bookmark. Friends, we can do better than that! ha!
Today I’m sharing some sweet & simple bookmarks I stamped. I paired this little mouse by Anita Jeram (not currently in the online store- sorry!) with some paint splatters & a swoosh from this fun crafty set by Taylored Expressions. I stamped the painty bits in Distress Oxide Ink, picking the colors based on the scraps of ribbon I could easily find on my work space to match with them! Here I’ve used Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet. Lastly, the mice were quickly colored in with some watercolor pencils and honestly, it’s as simple as that!
The stamp set comes with some cute little sentiments that I added to the bookmarks as well. Before stamping, I cut the bookmarks out of some mini slimline stackables stitched dies by Lawn Fawn, and they are perfect for this!
Here’s a closer look at my cute little bookmarks! Now I just need to make the time to use them…
