Friendship Bookmark Card

It is Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the Christmas Season, or so it used to be.
I can't wait for the numbers to come in and see what happened with stores being open on Thanksgiving.
I am however happy to be out of the box store retail business this time of year. 
 It is just a madhouse and totally
had me ruined on Christmas for along time.
Happy to report Scrooge has left the building and my Christmas Spirit has returned;)

So my creation today is a card with bookmark.
 The Blog
 held my inspiration project.
You can see the card HERE.

My CASE creation:

All products used are PaperTrey Ink EXCEPT for SU scallop circle punch.

The "Brights" Collection


Welcome to my blog, it is great to see you here.
Today I am showing you the start of my
"Brights" Collection of Digital Scrapbook kits.
This collection can be found in my designer store
over at
Brights have always been my favorite color category with
 lime taking the lead as top dog.
I am a Summer after all.
Summer?
Going back to my Color Theory Class there are actually classes of color categories that look best on each person based on biology.
I am a summer because of my light skin, green eyes, dirty blond hair and a blue look to my skin (this is caused by your veins you can either have a blue look or a warm red look to your skin because of your veins and the proximity of them to your skin surface).
And Summers love the BRIGHT colors and they look their best wearing this color palette.
For instance I am a blusher meaning my skin especially on my face becomes flushed easily so I do not look my best wearing a primary red color close to my face.  I am much better off in the complementary colors of
greens in the bright category.
Hence you will see me in  LIME frequently, turquoise comes next and yes, I do wear bright reds;)
So my favorite Summer colors are the inspiration for my "Brights" Collection...
  
 
 Bright Embossed Solid
 Bright Patterns
 Numbers Bright

*************************************************************************
 For those that are new to the world of digital stamps I have a quick refresher for you.

How to use digi stamps with PSE10.
Open your donwnload stamp file.  
This file comes as a jpg from Eureka Stamps that means it has a white background you will need to remove this background for my technique.
Click on the background eraser tool as shown below.
Click onto the white background you will see it be removed and the transparent layer appear.


I wanted to do something special with this image so I added a preloaded effect.
Color Target was my choice.
In your effects panel pick the Color Target Effect under the complex label and apply it to your digital stamp.
Now save your colored digital stamp as a png file to preserve the transparent background.

 Below is my saved digital stamp in png form...

Below you can see that I have opened my save PNG digital stamp in my
Silhouette Cameo designer software.
Now I am ready to print and cut my bookmarks...

Here are two completed hybrid bookmarks.
The 3d star from Lori Whitlock is one of my fave cuts on the Silhouette;)
