something paper....

i have started following a couple more challenge blogs: Gingersnaps Creations and Take a Word. the theme for Gingersnaps Creations this week is T Y P E W R IT E R S, which gave me the perfect opportunity to use the typewriter stamp i got from Michael's.

i thought about making a tag, then i thought "what the hell does a tag do?" and i can't bring myself to make art that isn't functional or would look nice on display. so i made a bookmark instead. goes with the theme, yes?

i used some cardstock and paper from a Tim Holtz paper stack along with some of his tissue tape along the sides. i gessoed the bookmark at the bottom to make sure my stamp would show up.
then i added some gold highlights and splatters.

of course i had to add some 3D elements, so i gave it a ton of ribbon at the top with an Eiffel tower and heart charm.
i also added a jewelry embellishment to the center.
i never create just paper things, but this was fun! i like it. :)

Whoo! My first Ginger challenge made it!


  1. This is gorgeous! Love all the fun embellies to come out of the top of the book. I snagged that stamp too, great for the challenge. Thanks for playing along at Gingersnap Creations!

  2. Bookmarks are always good to make and much nicer to use when it is handmade.
    Great stamp!
