Hats Are Fabulous! It's a Bookmark & Favorite Saying~

The saying and hat lady stamps are inked in 2 different colors, although it looks like the same color... hmmmm.... The front/back are glued together with Stamin' Up's 2-way glue pen, it works really well for this step. I rounded the corners to discourage them from peeling apart, distressed the edges and inked them with Rangers Spiced Marmalade. To add the ribbon at the bottom, I used the Xyron mini sticker machine. I have not yet found a glue that does not show through on ribbons.



This is a close up of the back where I used VersaMark ink to stamp my hat wearing lady in an all-over pattern. The ink shows up just slightlty darker than the paper, if you look closely, you can see her. I then ran the paper through an embossing folder, and applied ink directly from the stamp to the raised areas before adhering it to the front. Lastly, blinging it up a bit with Stickles glitter glue. I just had to add some sparkle to this spunky gal!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Isn't she cute and sassy?

  1. Amazing... so PRETTY... love the sentiment - made me laugh.

    Honestly, don't know which side is more striking - the front or the back. I think I love the design on the back and the sentiment on the front.

    I stick my ribbons with a thin coating of glue stick - seems to work for me.

    Love your crafts,

    Monica
