******My projects for the Blog launch are two fun bookmarks using a stamp from Carmen's Veranda. 

Stamp: Wienermobile form Carmen's Veranda
Ink: Black dye
CS: red, brown, orange, yellow, and white
Ribbons and yarn
Fabri-Tac glue


  • Stamp the Wienermobile on white CS with black dye ink and cut out.  
  • Add to three layers of cardstock.  
  • Punch hole in end and add ribbons and yarn.  
  • On the first bookmark, I braided the ribbon and held it together with a few dots of Fabri-Tac glue.

Who remembers the Wienermobile???    I actually just saw it the other day.  A local grocery store was having a grand opening event.  And there was the Wienermobile in the parking lot. And, I had just finished making these projects.  I thought it was fate that I use them for this post.  LOL   The wienermobile lives at a local museum ( The Henry Ford) so, I do get to see it now and then.  When I saw the stamp in the Carmen's Veranda catalog, I just had to have it!!  Too fun!!

****So, check out all the fun stamps and events!!  Hope to see your project on the new blog!!
