Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop 2

Here is my next blog post for the 
You can link your card to the hop too.
You find all the details here.

Today not a card to share,
but a bookmark,because

I love reading and especially when the weather
is nice and I can sit with my coffee and a book
in the garden. After my vacation to Italy I am reading:
The House by the Sea by Santa Montefiore.

I made two bookmarks, one for me,one to give away!
Solet me know which one you would like!

For some directions:
the bookmark is 2 x 6 inch.
This scalloped tag topper is perfect for a bookbark.
This way you have a great top and a hole for a ribbon.
Take some book paper and a glue stick.
Tear the paper into fun pieces.

Glue the pieces op bookpaper
onto the bookmark.

Decorate the bookmark with a stencil of your choice.

this is how it looks after using one stencil.

And I used another coffee stain stencil.
Both stencils are by Tim Holtz.

Now it is time for stamping.
The stampset i used is the Coffee Stamp Set
For the background I stamped with the
coffee steam stamp.
Then i used only half of this sentiment stamp
(from my stash)

On the other bookmark,I stamped some SU! coffee beans and 
a Club Scrap sentiment from the kit Brewed Awakenings 2012

Now  stamp and emboss the smallest of the coffee stamp
fromthe Michael Strong set. And then cut them out
with scissors and glue them to the bookmarks.

So this is the finished bookmark
with the hearts

and here is the finished bookmark with the
Club Scrap sentiment.

I think I go back to finish my book!
Hope to see you again tomorrow.

Have a creative day,

Fabulous bookmarks, Hetty! Thank you for showing how you made them - I don't have that punch but I think I could do something similar with partial die-cutting so thanks for the tip! As for the bookmarks, my favourite has to be the pink one with the hearts! Thank you! Always enjoy your coffee creations!

I like this Hetty! What a great idea for a bookmark! I love to read and usually have a beverage next to me whether coffee, tea or other. This would make a great gift tucked into either a book or with a gift card for coffee. I imagine you could make a pocket in the back of the book mark to hold it (maybe not wide enough) or inside a greeting card that matches the bookmark). Diana Craig
time to get out my MS stamps and use them!
