Bookmark card for Stamp With Us recipe challenge and sneak peek 4

I hope that you're having a great weekend. I'm having a terrific few days crafting, it's so lovely to have a little time to indulge my passion :-)

It's Sunday and so it must be Stamp With Us challenge day. Today's challenge is to use this recipe:

No patterned papers
2 x ribbon
2 different stamps

Stamp sets: Mr & Mrs, Forever Flowers
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Certainly Celery
Ink: Regal Rose, Mellow Moss, Versamark
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, 1/8" Circle
Gingham Ribbon: Light Pink, Moss
Other: White EP, Pewter Jumbo Eyelet

I stamped the main image using markers direct to stamp. I also created the pink background by the same method originally, but found the ink flooded the detailed design (see the flowers at the top of the card) and so switched to my Stampin' Spot which gave a much cleaner result (compare with the flowers in the lower half of the card). The bookmark is stamped using versamark on the standard wheel, Forever Flowers. It was then heat embossed with white powder. The bookmark is perforated so that it can be torn off to use.

Please take a look at the designs submitted by my fellow Design Team members over at Stamp With Us and I hope to see and comment on your own entries to this challenge.

Here, sneak peek 4 uses the great new christmas set - Tree Trimmings. This is adapted from a card by Sherry Roth over at Stamped Treasures.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
