I used die cuts of the sun, clouds, tree, grass , house etc…. which gives a nice overall look to the card.

Quick Bookmarks – Tubby Craft Stamps

Hello There!

It’s Bharati here with ideas for some quick book marks using the Tubby craft supplies.

Book marks make such quick projects to complete and they can be easily produced in greater numbers. I use the book marks as every day gifts or return gifts. Sometimes we exchange books with our my friends and then i add these book marks while returning the book. A sweet little something to brighten anyone’s day. 

Project 1 : Coffee & Books 

To make these bookmarks I used the stamp by tubby crafts called “Bookmark quote”. I just love this one with combination of books and coffee.

To make these book marks is super easy. I used some of the scrap card stock that i have and stamped the images using the combination of Tubby Craft inks called – Aqua, Sapphire blue.  Then I stamped the tiny book image Auqa ink all other the paper.

Project 2 : Adorable Unicorn

The next bunch of book marks that i made are using the “Unicorn Dreams” stamp set. The unicorn in this stampset is beyond being cute and adorable…. So on my scrap strips of card stock I stamped the image of the unicorn using Tubby Craft ink called Jet black. I also stamped the sentiment on this one from some other stamp set that i had.

Picture7.png

Once all the stamping was done , i punched the holes on the paper and tied the twin to finish the book marks. I also rounded the corners of all the bookmarks to all a little more interest.
