Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #2

For the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #2, you had to make a bookmark. I have never made a bookmark before so this was new to me.

I distressed the bookmark (with Tim Holtz inks, of course) and then stamped (Fiskars Stamps) the coffee cups and coffee beans with the same ink. I then went over that with a metallic gel pen, just to give it something extra. I then used Inkssentials Glossy Accents on each of the shapes. I think it came out pretty cool. I then tied some fancy yarn on the top (I didn't have any ribbons that matched).

What do you think? Makes me want to sit down with a good book and a cup of good coffee!


  1. Those colors with the shiny and that fuzzy ribbon go so great together! Love it! Thanks for playing!! :) Janis

  2. Oh this is so nice. A great little gift fo the avid reader & coffee lover.

  3. The glossy accents really make the entire project pop. I also like the distressing. Was not too extreme. I really like it.

  4. Lovey the glossyness! I love coffee tooo! Yummmmm

  5. Oooh...FUN! I love this! I always have to have my java in the morning. :)
