First - go buy this stamp (stack of books) HERE. You also need to check out her AWESOME NEW SET - it's embossed backgrounds -- DIGI-NESTIES for only $3!!!!!! She also has her first new CHRISTMAS SET in the store for $1.50!! You could also just go buy out her whole STORE and be about as happy as can be... (oh, I forgot to mention Lindsay is now featured on a new website - MY GRAFICO - check it out!)
Details on how I made these! First, I hope you can tell, each of the stamps (and therefore the bookmarks) are different sizes. I printed the stack of books in different sizes and then had fun coloring with different colors within a color family (it helps me to figure out which markers will blend to see them all in a row like this). It is fun to do the monochrome thing. I then used my janome sew mini to sew the stamp onto a sheet of bazzzzzillll. Then I used some supertacky red tape stuff to attach another piece of bazzil (in a coordinating shade of brown) to make the bookmark sturdy and protect my stitching. I set the giant eyelets with my cropadilebigbite. Then tied in a bit of fiber... oh, I also used my spica pens for the apples, and used a teeny bit of glossy accents (diamond glaze stuff) on the glasses. These bookmarks make great stocking stuffers, presents to hand out at work or church, and sell for $1 at craft shows like HOT CAKES!
