Robot Bookmark

Posted by on January 15, 2012 in Bookmarks, Challenges, Copic markers | 7 comments

Today we went to a birthday party, so I needed something that was suitable for a 4 year old. I won a set of robot stamps last year from The Stamps of Life and I haven’t really inked them up until now. My aim was to make a personalised card, but it ended up as a bookmark! It is funny how things turn out sometimes.

I am entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Chipboard Challenge over at Lilypad cards. I used chipboard fabric Thickers letters to personalise the bookmark – and covered them with glossy accents to add a bit of shine.

And to wrap the present, I stamped robots onto some paper and and my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter coloured them in. They had so much fun!

Supplies:

Stamps: The Stamps of Life “robots2build” by Stephanie Barnard
Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Distress inks – Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood
Card: X-Press It Blending card, Bazzill card – Navy Blue
Other Supplies: Copic markers, American crafts Thickers chipboard fabric letters, Glossy Accents, Kaisercraft turquoise ribbon, AnnaBelle Stamps Natural cotton thread, Basic Grey button – blue, foam dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by,

Marion
