Book Bookmark

No, I didn’t stutter. Lol. It’s a bookmark, featuring books. And a really great sentiment. 
I recently acquired these stamps at one of the trade shows because I was instantly drawn to them. I love books. And I love the sentiment. They go beautifully together. The stamps used are: Stack of Books and Write Your Own Story.

While I was originally thinking a card, as I started stamping, I quickly changed my mind to a bookmark. My 87 year old mom, who lives with my husband and I, loves to read. And since I like to make her little things every once in a while (she IS my biggest fan after all), I thought a bookmark would be perfect.

Both the image and the sentiment were stamped in black ink, and the books were colored with colored pencils and gamsol. I trimmed the piece down to a bookmark size, inked the edges, and added a ribbon and decorative staple (that was the tricky part — I had to take the staple out of the stapler and hammer it into place on a foam mat).

It was a quick and easy project, and I love the way it turned out. Sometimes, the simplest things are the best.
