These instructions can be made using any stamps, any size bookmark and any size card.
I got this idea when I fell in love with this stamp set from Prima Marketing titled "Quotes," but the stamps were too big for the standard A2 size cards that I usually make. So I decided to make a Bookmark Card.
First I chose the patterned paper which was from Pebbles. Then chose the inks (SU!'s Always Artichoke and Delightful Dijon) and stamped the bookmark and colored in a few of the images.
Then I measured and made the card just a little bigger than the bookmark, cut a slit in the top and ran the twine through it. (See picture below.)
The bookmark can be easily moved up or down for perfect placement, yet can be removed so the recipient can have a sweet little gift too!
Since my card was a special size, I needed to make it a custom envelope. Since the pattern is so busy, I placed Avery Labels on the front for the "to" and "from" areas. And since I'm going to give this as a gift for someone else to give away, I used some envelope gum so it could be sealed later on.

This card was made for the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge #108. The theme is "Fabulous Flowers." They're my favorite thing to stamp!
My supply list for this card is:

SU! Endless Birthday Wishes
Watermelon Wonder Ink

Tim Holts Stencil
So Saffron Ink
I also used this card to create my first ever
photo-stitching tutorial. You can see it here
on my blog.
Thanks to everyone over at Stamp, Ink Paper
for a great challenge. And thanks for stopping
by my blog today!
Memento Inks are a little better with fine images, but I so often I really want to use my SU! colors.
Well yesterday I found my solution. Ink them with a Ranger Foam Pad first. I had to do this three times before stamping the image just to make sure the ink was evenly dustributed.
It worked perfectly!
I also tried using a Stampin' Spot and lightly inking it, and that worked well too.
I know there must be others who have the same problem, and hopefully this tutorial has helped!
Now I need to get more foam pad refills!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This week we're encouraged to "Get in Shape" over at Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog.
After entering this in their Monday Challenge, I hopped over to their Wednesday Challenge and realized the theme was "Seeing Stars!" Wow! So I'll add that in since I just made it today and it fits there too.
I thought about a lot of different things I could make, but decided on making a star-shaped card to highlight my little "hero."
The base of the card is embossed so it looks a little fancy. It's hand-measured and folded with slits in the bottom so someone can write in the card and mail it flat then the recipient can unfold it and stand it up.
It really wasn't to complicated to make. Here's my supply list:
Stampin' Up! Star Dies
White 110# card stock
Patterned paper from coordinations (purchased at Joann's)
Darcie's "Super Day" stamp set
Copics in E37, B24, E13, R14, R29 and Y15
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and thanks to everyone over at Simon Says Stamp for putting this challenge together!

I love the simplicity yet versatility of this challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.
I colored the pot and cup with Copics. And to give the card a little more interest I cut a base from a Sizzix die and embellished it with white enamel dots from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for stopping by today!

The challenge this week over at Stamp, Ink, Papers is to create a birthday card in honor of A design team member's birthday. Easy enough!
I made my card with Close To My Heart's "Lovely Birthday" set. The inks used are:
Memento Bamboo Leaves
Memento Lilac Posies
Stampin' Up! Flirty Flamingo
Stampin' Up! Peakaboo Peach
The card stock is Stampin' Up!'s Old Olive.
What I really love about this card are the clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Because they're clear, they take on the color behind them. So in this case, it looks like I have three different color sequins when I only have one.
Well I hope Andrea had a great birthday yesterday! And I hope whiever gets this card will like it as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by today!
