Simple Coloring Tips for Cards
Magnolias & Birch Hand Stamped Sympathy Card

Check You Out Bookmark


Hello Friends,

Some of you may have heard that my husband lost his job last week.  Now that we have digested that, it's time for some encouragement.  So naturally, I turned to my Craft Room.  Today's handcrafted bookmark is for Joe.  It features the new Check You Out photopolymer stamp set by Stampin' Up!.

Love the little owl with his glasses, the worm with his bow tie and even the old-fashion library card!  It's a whole lot of cuteness. 

To make my bookmark masculine, I used the Come Sail Away Designer Paper and manly colors.  I used the colors listed on the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper Pack as a starting point, then added a few colors of my own.  My Check You Out Bookmark colors are Tuxedo Black, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Terra Cotta Tile, Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.  And then I threw in a snippet of Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam binding for one last pop of color.

I did some fussy cutting to make the pocketed library card, but the owl on the stack of books was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  To make the top of my bookmark.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch.  What a handy tool for any craft room.


The video from the Stampin' Up! office demonstrates how to use the Detailed Trio Punch and why it's so cool starting at about 29 seconds into the video.

Speaking of videos, I did some rearranging on my Stamping Country YouTube Channel this past weekend to make it easier for you to find relevant video tutorials.  Check it out.  And if you haven't already, be sure to Subscribe.


Have a fabulous day!
