Cute Bookmarks by Martha Lucia

Posted on August 05 2018

Hello everyone! Today I am featuring Mother Pearl Technique & Foiled Paper in a very cute Bookmarks that I made using one of the new stamp sets of Joy Clair and Rinea Foiled Paper.  This month we have a special collaboration between this two brands and I decided to make something special like they are for me.

Cute Bookmarks using Rinea Foiled Paper

I used a very old technique knows as Mother Pearl, and some die cuts to create the pieces of the bookmark. If you noticed it is a combination of two ends that you can use to separate the pages on your books. You only need to tie both pieces and determinate the length of the thread. I used natural/gold thread.

Directions:

I die cut a whisper white pieces of cardstock using the large die cut from the Anastasia Tag Die by WPlus9.  Using my Misti, I stamped different images from the stamp set Deer Friends using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Studio 71 Alcohol Markers.

Taking a piece of plastic wrap and All-Purpose Ink in Metallic Frost White color and inked the plastic wrap directly and "sponged" the ink over the painted images and all the surface. I let the inked layer dry for a few seconds and set it aside for a while.

To complete the project, I cut the same layer using the colors of foiled paper included on the Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack, I used the Glossy Lavender/Gold and after cut the large die cut. I cut two pieces but only in one, I cut the center with another oval included on the Anastasia Tag Die. With the negative part and a small die cut, I created the frame for the other end of my bookmark. All these parts were cut with the same set of die cuts.

I repeated the technique process to stamp the complement sentiment and assembled all the  Glossy Lavender/Gold Rinea Foiled Paper pieces using glue. At the end, I tied the two mini tags with a natural/gold thread.

Here is a second project that I made with the same process. At this time I only changed the colors of Rinea Foiled Paper and used Starstruck Silver Foiled Paper. This color is also included in the Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack.
Special tip:
You can also take advantage of the different sizes of foiled paper available on Rinea Shop or the single color packages to create this type of projects. And remember, if you have a “mass production” you can also use the new Misfits Foiled Paper Variety Packages. This is a mystery collection variety pack of our favorite metallic foiled papers in both starstruck and glossy.

Thank you for stopping by!
