“Patriotic” Bookmark









Top Tip: Okay I am sure many of you know this but for me it is my first encounter of this problem.  I have never had problems getting my dies out of my spellbinders but today the “Parisian” one gave me such a fit.   So if you do not know yet if you turn the die over and poke out the holes with say a pin it loosens everything right up.   I had one last piece of dark blue that I wanted to use but due to the problem I had to use light blue.  Still looks okay I think.

I used in this project:

Mel Jen’s – “American Eagle” image
Spellbinders – Parisian Motifs Die
Nestabilities – Circle Die
Stickles - Diamonds
Glitter Gel Pens

  2. Love the Eagle image and it works perfectly for this seasonal bookmark. I have had some issues with certain papers coming out of the die - seems some papers love to stick more than others. Sounds like something that would happen to me on my last sheet of something! LOL!

  12. What a beautiful bookmark, thanks for joining us at Stamping Dragons Designs.

    Tip for using intricate dies is to use wax paper with your die. It helps to pull your paper out of die easier with out having to poke out the paper out using a pin.
