LIIU Challenge #2 - Vintage Tags/Bookmarks

Hello and happy Sunday to everyone! We had a wonderful response to our very first challenge over at Let's Ink It Up! We had an amazing number of entries and they were all beautiful! This next challenge will be a fun one! We want you to make either a tag or a bookmark with a twist! Yes all of the challenges will have a twist! This time the twist is that we want your project to have a vintage feel to it! So that's a vintage bookmark or tag!

Our sponsor this week is Carol Gomes an independent consultant for Close to My Heart! Here's what Carol has to say:

Close to my Heart is a leading manufacturer of My Acrylix Stamps, as well as a full line of papers, inks, markers and embellishments that all coordinate together. You can view tutorials and artwork at my website and if you live outside the US, you can e-mail me your orders and I will gladly get them shipping to you, as we do not sell directly outside the US and Canada at this time. I take MasterCard, Visa, Discover and PayPal. When you join my newsletter, you will receive 5 free layouts complete with cutting directions for both scrapbooking and cards. The link to my newsletter is

She will give one lucky winner this stamp set!

It looks awesome doesn't it? So let's get creating!

This is what I made for my project. These are a set of vintage corner bookmarks. I saw the step by step directions for these at Splitcoaststampers here.

Stamps: Stampin' Up Sets: Chicken Wire, Country Borders, Roosting
Punch: MS Border punch
Paper: kraft and real red from Stampin' Up
All inks are from Stampin' Up and images colored by Copics

I have entered these bookmarks into the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious - anything but a card
A Crafty Little Place - anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - anything but a card
YNS Challenge - anything goes

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!
