Bookmarks and a Mug Life with Angela

August 20, 2018

Hello everyone,

My name is Angela Tombari and I’m pretty excited to be with you today with my very first project for The Ink Road Stamps. I’m sharing with you a fun project using the fun Mug Life stamp set. I made two bookmarks for my two teens, hoping to tempt them to read more 😉

The coffee cup with the banner is absolutely my preferred stamp ever, I just couldn’t stop laughing when I first saw it! So, I decided to use it for my bookmarks.

I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored with my Zig watercolor brushes.

I fussy cut the first coffee cup and adhered it on the white bookmark, approximately in the center. For a sparkling effect, I added a thin layer of glitter on to the cream, using the transparent Wink of Stella brush. Then, I stamped a sentiment from the same Mug Life set and embossed it with black embossing powder.

TIP: to keep the bookmark flat, I would suggest to add just paper decorations and everything thin, like I did here with a few paper confetti.

The second bookmark is in black and has a few different details.

I stamped another cup fussy cut the banner only. Then, I adhered it right on top of the banner of the full stamped cup with foam tape, for a 3D effect. Moreover, I added a coat of Glossy Accent on the cream.

Last difference, the sentiment is white embossed and the bookmark is rounded by a faux stitch made with a white gel pen.

For the bookmarks I chose a tag shape, a very long tag! They are both 2,5 inches wide and 7,5 inches long.

As a finishing touch, I added a string with a few pompons to one bookmark and a tassel to the other.

Below you can see the fun effect achieved with the tag-bookmark 🙂

I don’t know if my sons are going to read more but they do like the bookmarks a lot. I hope you enjoyed this fun project too.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you soon.

Love,

NG
