Pop Up Fun!


Hello friends!   I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are off to a great start of the work week!  I have just a quick project to share with you today.  As you most likely know, this month at Our Daily Bread designs, it's all about bookmarks!  I had this idea in my head as a way to give a bookmark... from the minute I first saw them.  I created a quick free standing pop up card base and inserted the bookmark.  It folds flat and sends easily (well, if you use flat flowers! LOL!)  The instructions can be found HERE.  The base couldn't be easier, and the bookmark is done in a snap with the ODBD custom Bookmark die cut!  This one uses Rubber Cafe white card stock, and The Paper Co cool metallic blue.  The stamp is from the ODBD Scripture Bookmarks set and it's stamped with Versacolor variated pigment ink in Icicle, then I over-stamped just the verse in VersaFine Onyx Black.  The ribbon is a sheer ribbon from Michael's, as are the flowers.  To decorate the base I used Spellbinders Moroccan Accents, and Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents.




I am entering this in this week's ODBD Shining the Light challenge, which is super easy... to use Scripture!  I am also entering it in Word Art Wednesday, which is also to use Scripture or any encouraging sentiment, or the free digi they give each week.  I am also linking it to Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes, Lollipop Crafts - Monochromatic,   Tammy Scrapin Corner -BlingThe Pink Elephant - Ribbon Galore,  There She Goes - Use a Sentiment as main Focus, Whoopsi Daisy  -Die Cuts and/or Punches,   Love to Create  Punches and Dies Victorine Originals Bling One Stitch At A Time  White +1Our Creative Corner -  Bling it up and something from nature (bling on bookmark, bird and grass stamp)  Clearly Inspired -Things with WingsTotally Papercrafts – Monochrome Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Gingerloft 45: silhouettes, Emerald faerie garden - bling, Really reasonable ribbon 53: bling with ribbon, 2 sisters- anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love knowing you were here!

Grace: I must say that ODB is very blessed to have you on their Design Team. You have showcased their products SO beautifully each week, and I too have fallen in love with their bookmark die cuts and the matching stamp sets. Great job.
