Hi, crafty friends! It's Jessica here today to share a fun bookmark tutorial with you! I ended up making three different versions!!! I had a lot of fun playing with the Beautiful Joy Claire stamp sets!
I used the following Supplies to create these bookmarks:
- Joy Clair Coffee Love Stamp Set
- Embossing Powder (assorted colors)
- Versamark Ink
- Coffee Cup Shaped Dies
- Embossing Folder
- assorted cardstock
Let's get creating!
Bookmark #1 - Traditional Style
The first bookmark is a pretty standard one. It's 6inches long and about 2.5 inches wide. I used the Glossy Mocha/Gold foiled paper to create the base layer along with the backing layer for the sentiment! I stamped the super cute "Life Happens" sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with a brown embossing powder. I also stamped the coffee cup onto a light pink cardstock and fussy cut it out. From the Princess Variety Pack, I chose the pretty Glossy Lavender Light Purple/ Gold. I used a chevron embossing folder to add some fun texture to the Foiled Paper. It really holds it's shape beautifully! Simply add your layers together with an adhesive of choice and add a fun ribbon! I had this fun tinsel ribbon and used it for flare!
Bookmark #2 - Corner Bookmark
This bookmark comes together so quickly and easily - you could make some for "back to school" teacher gifts!!! I used the Glossy Blush Pink/Gold from the Princess Variety pack to make this bookmark. I cut a 6" square of the foiled paper, then started folding! Fold the paper in half, bottom corner to top corner. Next, fold the bottom left corner up to the top corner. Repeat with the right corner. Turn over, then fold the bottom corner – top layer only – up to the top corner. Unfold your last fold and fold back up, in the other direction, into the pocket. Clear as mud? Haha - it's pretty easy!! The foiled paper holds the shape and bends very easily. I decorated this cute bookmark with the small coffee cup stamp from the Joy Clair Set. I embossed it with a butterscotch embossing powder and added the little coffee bean for decoration! I did fussy cut the coffee cup.
Bookmark #3 - Coffee Cup
I loved this one the best I think! I used a large coffee cup die to cut a piece of cardstock and a piece of the Glossy Copper/Gold Foiled Paper. I embossed the foiled paper using a fun embossing folder, then glued the two layers together. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with a mocha embossing powder. The cute coffee beans were stamped randomly around the sentiment, and it was matted onto a piece of the Glossy Mocha/Gold foiled paper. I also decorated the larger coffee cup stamp from the Joy Clair set with a mini cup and some scrap silver foiled paper. A little bit of ribbon topped with a bookmark for flare!
I hope you enjoy these cute bookmarks! You will love this Joy Clair stamp set as well - it's very versatile, and I know I will make a lot of cards with it!
See you again soon!
