For day 2, we are showcasing the All Booked Up Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies and Bookmark Die Set.

I started by stamping the images from the All Booked Up Stamp Set on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I used the new Bookmark Die Set to die-cut some Bristol Smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with Twisted Citron and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide inks. I also used some White Copic paint to splatter some white paint on the bookmark for added interest.

I adhered the colored images on the bookmark and added glossy accents to the eyeglasses for added texture. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour and worked on adding a sentiment to the bookmark. I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock and with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder to this. I heat-set the powder with my heating tool and adhered the sentiment onto the bookmark.

I finished the bookmark by adhering some gold stars. I also added some blue ribbon with white & gold twine and for a little bit of a festive and fun touch, I added the gold jingle bells!
