'Away we Go' : Bookmarks and a spiral pop up card!

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm sure you all must be enjoying the fabulous creations by our DT members and there have been some really cool summer themed projects doing rounds here at the Peek-a-Boo blog!! Blame it on the super cute MAY 2016 release!! This one release has something for everyone and makes way for very pretty stamp sets to be added to your stamp treasure!!
PABD also houses the Exclusive stamp Set, where a stamp set can be purchased via the month's exclusive stamp set. Check the complete scheme at the PABD blog and the FB pages!
I'm working with the Exclusive set for this month which is a Travel Theme based stamp set and is named 'Away We Go' !! This stamp set is very versatile and has some really nice travel related stamp sets!

Here's what I made with the stamp set.

I made a set of 3 colourful bookmarks along with a spiral pop up card

Both the creations have minimal embellishments and the focus is mainly on the travel related stamps that are there in the stamp set. 

This is how the spiral pop up card opens like
The card has an interesting opening and this one is really simple to make. All you need is a square piece of paper and then you simply cut it out like a rolled rose. adhere the innermost point and the outer most point with the below and upper flap of the card respectively and watch the super cute way the card opens up! Adhere the stamp cutouts on the spiral of the card!


Here's a look at the bookmarks!

These are very simple and easy peasy too!! I loved the Hot Air balloon and decided to use that stamp as the focal. These balloons are stamped and then coloured with Nirmal watercolors, which are kind of the indian version of the peerless watercolors!! Super economical and the best thing is the no-hustle way of carrying it around!


The base of the bookmarks is made with masking the clouds shape with distressing. I handcut the clouds shape onto a piece of paper and then used that as a base to make the background moving from bottom to top and making the sky background. 
Onto that is then adhered the fussy cut, coloured images of the stamps from the set.
The right hand one was done with the masking started halfway and the bottom was sponged with the green distress ink and the grass is hand drawn !


and these are then finished off by stamping the sentiments onto the boomarks!!

Here's the Travel theme stamp set!



Perfect bookmarks for a travel addict! I totally loved making these bookmarks and the card and loved the way these came out to be the colourful ones!!

I hope you liked them as well and do not forget to enter into our current challenge which is all about inpiring yourself!

Happy Crafting!
