Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

We are joining a fantastic event with a community of card makers that love coffee, tea, and cocoa as much as their papercraft supplies! The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog has a spring theme blog hop, and we are hopping along!

Our fresh spring project is a trio of bookmarks, perfect for a relaxing time outside with a good book or three!

All three were stamped with Coffee Talk Perfectly Clear Stamp Set in alcohol marker safe ink then reversed masked to create patterns on two of the cups with Fronds Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. The coffee cups were masked and partially covered with the edge of another sticky note to create the horizon. Stencils and airbrush tool or stamped and colored patterns were added on each bookmark (from left to right): Jungle Leaves and Flower Lace stencils, Stone Background stencil and Bouquet For You Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, and Picasso Shield/Stencil Tool (video) and Wood Background Stamp.

Owl be in the Study

It’s Literary Owl who’s in our study today. He’s one of our any occasion stamps that would work great for those projects that instill the reader in you or those that have inspired you through the love of learning. There’s just so many directions you can take with this stamp that we’ll just have to show you a few samples to spark the inspiration bug.

There is a whole bunch of goodness going on with the torn paper, coffee stain map and Fran•táge style bling on this card created by Jennifer Dove.

Wendy made a golden card with a colorful stack of books for his perch. You can recreate this card from the project page on our website.

Here’s one more Literary Owl on a beautiful bookmark. This one was created by design team alumni Suzanne Czosek. Look how she’s created the precariously stacked set of books.

Take a Ride on the Reading Railroad

"Masculine Bookmarker" by Jennifer J Ingle
  1. Stamp the map from the Railway Perfectly Clear Set onto kraft paper with distress ink and then cut out the image.
  2. Mount it on black card stock.
  3. Add a bit of mica from the Fran•táge Mica Kit.
  4. Stamp tickets in different color inks on white card stock and cut out.
  5. Distress the edges a bit to give them some age and texture without adding a lot of dark ink!
  6. Adhere them to the front of the  bookmark with glue.
  7. Now I can tuck this into a good book and give as a gift to a friend!  Have a happy day! – Jennifer Ingle
