2 sleeps! I can tell you for us #Outlander fans, months ago we never thought this day would come!! So what am I doing on Sunday? Going to an Outlander season 3 premiere party, of course! We are heading to the Kilt & Caber in Calgary and I’m just about counting down the hours!
So what is happening in my craft room to get ready? Well, if you saw in previous posts, it was in the summer I spotted the Outlander stamp set by Kindred Stamps and didn’t have to think too long on making that online purchase!
Was a struggle to get them in my hands, between back order and USPS taking it on an adventure and then Canadian customs, weeks and weeks had gone by and I was just about ready to throw in the towel and they arrived!! Ironically, just the day I was down at the post office asking if there was anything they could tell me, which they said they couldn’t, I came home to find them in the box that same day! I have to say Kindred Stamps was super good about the issue, they were very apologetic and refunded me all myself shipping fees for my inconvenience. Really appreciate that, thanks, Kindred Stamps!
So what do you make for book readers, a bookmark, of course!! Here are some play by play photos of my creation and even my twins colouring their own Jamie & Claire!
I used whisper white cardstock for the base cut at 8 inches by 2 inches. I used our current punch the Scalloped Tag Topper, page 206 in the annual catalogue for my bookmark topper.
Next I used a retired designer series paper called Maritime DSP and I just barely had enough. I cut that at 7 inches by just less than the 2 inches. I adhered it to the card stock bookmark with Snail adhesive.
I used the 1 3/4 circle punch for the sentiment in the middle (from a retired stamp set called Going Global), between our cutie Jamie and Claire. I used a retired scallop punch to matte the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped in real red and matted to a real red card stock.
I punched out Jamie and Claire also using a retired tag punch but you can use many different sizes of our framelits in various shapes. Above you will see the colors I used for them are as follows:
Claire – chocolate chip hair, dress is night of navy and soft suede.
Jamie – cajun craze hair, chocolate chip belt/pants, basic black boots, and baked brown sugar (retired) on the coat.
There are absolutely no rules on colouring these little guys! I just wanted to share because I was keen to get their hair as accurate as possible. The rest I just kind of winged it and I chose the Night of Navy because it matched the DSP colors which were real red and night of navy. For the bookmark tie at the top, I used a retired vintage lace but I’d recommend our current products of the linen thread or the burlap ribbon.
So here is the finish product!!
What do you think, Outlander fans? Will my fellow fans at the premiere by happy to go home and add this to their #Outlander collection on their bookshelves?
The twins very much enjoyed Jamie and Claire too!
Thanks! Watch for upcoming posts about the premiere party and a craft room makeover reveal to come!
