I needed some more bookmarks around the house and thought this image would be perfect for the size. So it’s a flat bookmark and one layer of cardstock to fit in the book. The image is Mountain Song DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps and is a great scene to color. I wanted a splash of color and thought a red herring would be funny so I colored the bird red. It was a bit too much of the red so I brought in some browns and black.
Here’s another bookmark I made and this one uses Mei Li from Sister Stamps. I used an envelope I found an Daiso while on a recent shopping spree. The sentiment is a cupcake stencil for “Laugh” and the dragonflies are Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments.
Here’s another bookmark I’ve made for the New Year. This uses Buddies from Sister Stamps and I added details with a white gel pen to the clothes. I stamped the frog twice so I could add a little more green in contrast to the red.
The Prosperity sentiment is from Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments. The Prosperity logograph is from a cupcake templates set that seemed to be the perfect size for stenciling. The ink wasn’t drying on the smooth paper I selected so I embossed it too.

Happy New Year! I’ve created some bookmarks to give away this year in my red envelopes and this is the first one I made. I was going for a off-set print look where the black and red ink are offset if they were printed by a press. It’s something I’m experimenting with and I think this one turned out just so-so. But it’ll make a great bookmark. 😀
I’ve used Sister Stamp’s Year of the Dog stamp and drew the two lanterns on sketch paper. The Good Luck sentiment is Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.
I found some origami paper of Mount Fuji at Daiso and thought it would be fun to use. So I came home and made a bookmark with Ai with Taiko Drum by Sister Stamps. I actually liked how it turned out so this might be the one I keep this year.
I’m honored to announce that I’ll be spending some time as a guest with Jennifer working with her fabulous rubber stamps, DoveArt Designs Studios. I hoped that this will allow me to turn over some new leaves and get back to crafting. 😀
For my first project, I set out to create a card but ended up with an envelop instead. This uses the Country Shed rubber stamp and it was stamped on balsa wood. I planned to add a little color but the balsa wood started to disintegrate so I ditched that idea and went with a monochrome focus.
Here’s yet another bookmark that we’ve stuffed into a red envelope for someone in the family. Even though they are all similar, I’ve tried to make them a little different. This one uses Graduate from Sister Stamps. While coloring this one, my daughter learned about the graduation ceremonies and why someone is given a lei, or several of them. She says she wants to move to Hawaii now when she graduates but I promised her this is something we can do even in Texas. She excited about the prospect of receiving so many that it covers her face. LOL
