I'm here with my first creations with the Warm Weather Animals stamps and dies from the new SSS Among the Stars release, and this set is so adorable.
I gave my daughters a reading challenge for the summer. My oldest loves books and loves to read, so I challenged her to read 10 books over the summer and at the end we would get her something special. My youngest daughter does not like to read but I have her the same challenge but for 5 books and at the end of the summer we would get her something special as well.
To kick off the challenge I made them each a book mark to use with their first book.
I took some watercolour paper and created a background for both bookmarks and heat embossed the pineapple with SSS white embossing powder. I then used the SSS basic banners dies to cut out two banners.
My oldest chose this one with the teddy and with one of the banners I coloured it with my Zig Clean Color markers in yellows, browns and greens and the teddy in brown, like yellow and blue. I die cut the teddy and added him with foam tape. I them stamped the sentiment in SSS intense black ink and punched a small hole in the top of the banner and added some DMC embroidery floss.
My youngest chose the flamingo one and I coloured these in pinks and green. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of patterned paper I had in my stash (I'm not pleased with the paper but she liked it) and adhered it to the banner. I die cut the flamingo and added him with foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
