Splendid Roses Bookmark

Hello! Rachel here today. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decided to create a beautiful bookmark in lovely pink tones. I used the gorgeous Splendid Roses stamp set as my focal image.

I started by cutting my bookmark from some Neenah Solar White cardstock (I actually cut two, but I'll get to the second piece later). I used my MISTI to stamp my roses on the bottom of the bookmark and then colored them in using my Copics. I used R22, R20, and R11 for my pinks and YG99, YG97, and YG99 for my greens. I added my gray halo around the image using C3, C1, and C00. When I was finished with my coloring, I used my MISTI to add my sentiment in a lovely heat embossed rose gold. I love heat embossing sentiments. I think it makes them stand out. Now back to that second bookmark piece...

I took my second bookmark and used some Multi Medium Matte to adhere it to the back of my colored bookmark. The pieces are symmetrical, so it covers the bleeding from my Copics and the pierced piece is visible on the back as well. It gives it a lovely finished look. I grabbed a piece of baker's twine from stash and threaded it through the top to complete my bookmark.

Here's a close up of the beautiful shine from the embossing powder. I just adore it!


  1. So simple and so beautiful! Love your coloring especially!

  2. Your coloring is amazing Rachel!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
