Monarch Butterfly Bookmark

The Mindy Bookmarks continued... ;). This Scripture verse speaks of being in Eden and being bejeweled with precious stones. Anyone else hear GLITTER! being exuberantly and joyfully screamed out? heehee But not just glitter, also some gemstone brads!

Okay - so I took advantage of the FAB sale over at CreativePlayStamps, (CPS) [which, by the way, was extended through TODAY, June 2nd - that's 15% off everything in their online store - like all the items I used on this bookmark!] and got LOTS of fun embellishments to play with. so look for some CPS inspiration in the coming months.

#1 CPS Treasure Find - though not new to many of you, The Essential Glue Pad Kit was new to me and IT IS AMAZING! Nothing could be easier. I used it to stamp the CPS Monarch Butterfly image, then sprinkled the Angel Dust Ultrafine Transparent Glitter (similar to SU! Dazzling Diamonds Glitter). I tried out several of the Glitter colors that CPS carries on the SU! Elegant Eggplant cardstock before settling on this one that went best with the SU! Almost Amethyst the Scripture is printed on. If you use alot of glitter you simply MUST have one of these Glue Pads - and why not get it on sale? Get over to CreativePlayStamps TODAY, and you can stock on glitter too! :)

The Butterfly also has a few SU! Fire Circle Brads on it, to reinforce the gemstones talked about in the Scripture verse.

#2 CPS Treasure Find - Gemstone Brads & Velvet Brads, along with felt flowers and butterflies. The Jeweled Brads from Heidi Swapp have some HUGE brads that would great flower centers among other ideas. You really need to check out the entire CPS Embellishment Section they have really expanded. ENJOY!
