Featured Stamper of the Week

For the featured stamper of this week, I am happy to introduce Debi N. I’ve had the blessing of meeting Debi in person and swapping ideas with her. She has a great sense of humor and is very sweet and giving. She comes up with such original and interesting ideas. She never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.

The project Debi made is an origami fold bookmark and card. The original idea came from a swap she participated in quite awhile ago. Unfortunately, the identity of the stamper is unknown so we are unable to give credit to that person. From that swap, Debi created a template for the project you see.

Read on for more information from Debi.

"This card was created with an extra gift on the corner. This is a bookmark that can be used in your Bible or other favorite book for years to come. I used papers from the Summer picnic DSP as well as the bashful blue as my main cardstock. Stamps from Tart and tangy and the Bitty Basics (level 1) were used as well as the scallop punch. I used CE on the cherries to make them shine which probably isn't visible in the pictures. Ruching the ribbon gives it a bit more texture, and then I ran it through my Xyron to make it stick easier and not loosen the edges. This ribbon is bashful blue grosgrain. The bottom scallop has red grosgrain as a knot in the center. I pierced a hole in the center of the 2 layers of paper and then made a square knot to pull it through. I distressed the edges of the papers to make it look older."

What a great way to use up some retired DSP. These would make some cute gifts. Thanks for sharing.
