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!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
