Quick & Easy Bookmark to Brighten Your Day

Hi Everyone,
While we are on the subject of owls, I just couldn't resist sharing with you a sweet bookmark I created using the Two Step Owl punch and some scraps of cardstock and Designer Series Paper I had left over from other projects. There are so many ways to use this Two Step Owl punch, whether it is with the Sale-a-bration stamp set Punch Bunch that I shared in the previous post, or just used with cardstock and Designer Series paper to create a cute punched art owl like this bookmark.
The base of the bookmark was created from Pretty in Pink cardstock using my Big Shot and the Two Tags Sizzix Bigz die (exclusive to Stampin' Up!). I then punched out a scallop circle from Melon Mambo cardstock using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch and attached it to the bookmark with a Stampin' Dimensional.
The Owl is punched from Chocolate Chip cardstock and the lighter parts of the eyes are punched from Naturals Ivory cardstock. The heart is punched from Real Red cardstock and the vest is punched from a scrap of Pretty in Pink Designer Series Paper (Subtles Collection).
The verse is a stamp from the Level 3 Hostess stamp set Occasional Quotes, stamped in Melon Mambo Classic ink.
Once again, you can create this project from whatever color or color combinations you choose and it is a perfect way to use up the scraps you have lying around. Bookmarks make a perfect gift to add to a card and this one will bring a smile to your face everytime.
I hope you have enjoyed this quick little project and I hope it inspires you to see the possibilities in all the scraps you may have lying around and create a new project of your own.
Until Next Time.
Happy Stampin',
Tricia Butts
