Botanical Inspiration: Take 2

After yesterday's epically long post, here's a short one...playing on a variation of the first Botanical Inspiration post.

The color palette transforms this into a warm and cozy version of the first book mark. Shades of brown and a copper border are the backdrop for red in the sentiment and two red birds (they don't exactly look like cardinal silhouettes, but so what?).

I adore the spiky, stylized pine boughs (Papertrey Embellished Elegance) combined with the curls and curves and solids of the other botanicals.

And that's all I have to say about that.

stamps: Papertrey Embellished Elegance, Turning a New Leaf, Signature Christmas, Through the Trees
ink: Hero Arts, Memento
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: eyelet, DMC floss, 1/8" hole punch, copper metallic marker (Pentel)


  1. I like this one. Great mix of stamps and colours.

  2. OMG. you do turn out stunners like this on a regular basis..
    A stamper's dream :)

  3. Your bookmark turned out beautifully Susan. It looks like designer paper. Great stamping.

  4. Beautiful - love the touches of red :-)
