In ‘Your Likeness’ Bookmarks

June 28, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am creating a few bookmarks for my kids using Ilse and Charlene stamps. During summer months, the deal between my kids and myself is if they read daily, I will leave them alone. They are holding up their end of the bargain, but it seems they are constantly stealing my notes and reminders to stick inside their novels. So today I thought it would be fun if I created a some bookmarks in their likeness for them to use instead.

Step One: Die cut four bookmark bases using the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Stamp from the Ilse and Charlene stamp collection in alcohol friend ink images in the likeness of the people in your life. I used Lady & Gentleman, Funky Chicks, and Pure Spring stamp sets for my family.

Step Three: Color in the images. I used copic markers.

Step Four: Add a sentiment to each of the book marks. I used one from the Moments of Life stamp set.

Step Five: Using a background stamp from the Moments of Life stamp set, add texture to the bookmark.

Step Six: Repeat step five using a different background stamp from the Moments of Life stamp set..

Step Seven: Blend ink through the Pattern Stencil Pack stencils onto the bookmarks. I coordinated color with each shirt. For my middle child I used the wacky lines stencil and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxides.

For my youngest, I used the circle stencil and Salty Ocean Distress Oxides.

For my son I used the dash grids and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide.

Finally, for the bookmark I created for myself I used the rose buds stencil and Pine Needles Distress Oxides.

Step Eight: To finish the bookmarks, add coordinating thin satin ribbon.

I hope you think these book marks are as much fun as I do. Make sure you check out the whole Ilse and Charlene’s stamp line to see which images best showcase your family.

Which image would you use to create a likeness for those you love? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
