Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: In Other Words: Read - Bookmark Giftset

Hi Everyone!

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win!! Release weeks at TE always blow me away not only because of the sheer amazingness (yes, that's my new word :) of the stamp sets but also the way things coordinate together and for the sheer creativity in each stamp set!

My project today sneak peeks the new stamp set: In Other Words - Read which also coordinates with the previously released Mark Your Spot Bookmark Die from Taylored Expressions. This stamp set is just awesome - I LOVE the sentiments and the size of the different words in the sentiments - so so cool!

I love that you can make boomarks with this stamp set - this image of the pile of books stacked up fits perfectly on the bookmark and then I created a coordinating card that matches the bookmark - I thought it would be a perfect giftset along with book all packaged together :) Here is a pic of the giftset:

I stamped the image of the books twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored them about the same with copics and then cut them out. I cut out some yellow DP with the Mark Your Spot bookmark die and the Banner Stacklets 2 dies and then popped the stack of books onto them. I then stamped the sentiments and put the sentiment under the books in bookmark and to the side on the card:

Here is pic of the bookmark - I added some twine to the bookmark and then used a white gel pen to go around the edges of the bookmark and card for a little faux stitching. 
Card Ingredients:
Stamp set: In Other Words- Read stamp set by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Black
Paper: DP from MME
Accessories: pearls, dimensionals, copics, twine, cropodile, Mark Your Spot Bookmark Die and Banner Stacklets 2

I want to make a ton of these for the holidays - I think they would make such a great Christmas present along with a good book! Have you guys been reading some good books this summer? I have been trying to catch up - these are the summer books on my reading list that I have been enjoying:

Eva Luna by Isabelle Allende
Collected Fictions by Jorge Luis Borges
Mama Day by Gloria Naylor
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
Ramana Maharishi by Shamsa Aithala

Cute set, I'd love to get a set of those for my books! I've been reading Amish Christian books by Wanda Brunstetter and authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. :)
