SOS258 How does your garden grow

Looking threw other crafty peoples challenge entries I found anouther new challenge site called -
Shopping Our Stash, and there challenge this time was How Does Your Garden Grow.

If you would like to participate Click Here.

 I am using a stamps set from My Favorite Things called Sweet Rose and a set from My Pink Stamper called Lunchbox Thoughts.

The dies that also cordinate with Sweet Rose and a book mark die from Avery Elle.
 Here I am die cutting them all at once on my Big Shot.

I am using heavy weight white card stock from Hobby Lobby as well as some Stampin UP colors called Pistachio Pudding, Sweet Sugar Plum, and Crisp Cantaloupe.
 I cut out enough for eight bookmarks, so I made eight passes threw my Big Shot.

I used my pokey tool to help push the flowers and leaves out of the dies.

I then stamped the flowers and leaves with cordinating ink that match the card stock.
 Using a sentiment from the Lunchbox Notes stamp set and some Dapper Denim ink, I stamped it on the side of the book mark right above the little dots that the Avery Elle bookmark die made while cutting it out.
Using some Tombow Mono glue to adhere the flowers and leaves.
I took some Hobby Lobby brand ribbon and cut 10 inches worth.
 I cut that in half so I ended up with two five inch pieces.

Heat seal the edges lightly with a lighter to prevent the ribbon from splitting.
 Feed them threw the slot at the top and spreed them apart a little and use a mini stapler to staple them down.
