I have been wanting to try one of these for a while now and the Sudsol challenge to Case the sample in our Stampin’ Up! Impressions magazine gave me the push I needed.

I found a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers (I really don’t know how I would get along without this site) which was really simple to follow.

Basically you need a 4″ square piece of card stock, add a couple of score lines and then decorate.  It couldn’t be more simple.  I used Whisper White card stock.  Once I had the score lines in place I stamped the large flower from the Vintage Vogue stampset using Real Red ink.  I also stamped onto a post-it-note and cut it out.  I used the image on the post-it-note to mask the stamped image and then stamped the vine image from the same stampset over the top of the Real Red flower using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the small flower onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Real Red ink but stamping off once onto scratch paper first.  I cut the small flower out and attached it to the centre of the large flower and added a large Basic Rhinestone.  I punched the bottom edge using the Eyelet Edge Punch and then stamped “wonderful you” from the Loving Thoughts stamp set using Real Red ink.  Lastly I wrapped the bookmark with Real Red 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon and tied a knot.

I love how simple these are to make and also how really gorgeous they are.  If you haven’t made one, then you should also give it a try.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
