Elegant Bookmarks – Sneak Peak

 Oooooh…. I cannot tell you how excited I am about the new Winter Mini catalog… there are soooo many wonderful things… this bookmark was made with the Holy Triptych stamp set from the new Winter Mini catalog – you can order this starting Sept. 1st!  I thought I would give you a little peak…

The bookmarks are really easy to make… simply stamp the tag image onto very vanilla cardstock using Stampin’ Up!’s basic gray classic ink and then stamp your sayings using a contrasting color. I used the refuge and strength stamp set by Stampin’ Up! with Stampin’ Up!’s old olive classic ink.  The trick to making these easy is to cut out the stamped images using a paper cutter for even borders… then attach the stamped images to a contrasting color cardstock (I used old olive) using liquid glue by Stampin’ Up!. Before you cut out the tags, emboss the gray stamped image as well as the emphasized text on your sayings using a gold gelly roll pen to make a very elegant look. Cut the tags out using a paper cutter to ensure an even border.  Use a jumbo eyelet by Stampin’ Up! and the Crop-A-Dile… pick ribbon to match.

Voila… a beautiful bookmark to share with friends & family.  These make wonderful gifts… and look very special in your bible to boot… you can also use these to embellish a scrapbook page in a very very special way!
