Yesterday’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was written by the wonderful Beverly Gerard. She showed us how to create bookmarks out of chipboard.

I started by cutting 2 thin coasters with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die. I also cut four pieces of Kraft cardstock with the same die.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. An image from Flourishes From The Desk Of was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers (Flowers: Y15, Y17, YR15, Y27, E39,   Leaves: G40, G43, G46, YG21   Water: BG0000, BG000   Books: E71, E74, E77, YR14, YR27, E37, E0000, E30, E31). The image was masked, then a sentiment was stamped over the image with Antique Linen Distress ink. The oval was sponged with the same ink.


I ran the Kraft Oval die cuts through my Xyron. A Kraft Oval was adhered to each of Coaster oval die cuts. Before Kraft ovals were added to the other side, May Arts ribbon was adhered to the coaster oval.







The image oval was adhered to the bookmark front and magnetic discs on the back.

To finish off the bookmark I tied a button to the top of the oval with embroidery thread.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.

Hugs and smiles
