“Love is a verb, without action it is merely a word” Handmade Bookmark

Isn’t that so?

Today’s project



Materials & tools used:

A piece of purple cardstock measuring 21cm x 5cm

A piece of white cardstock  measuring 19cm x 5cm

Printed quote or sentiment measuring 14,5cm x 3cm

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch by Stampin’ Up!

Small heart punch by Stampin’ Up!

Festive Berries distress ink by Tim Holtz

Seedless Preserves distress ink by Tim Holtz

Stampin’ Spritzer Bottle by Stampin’ Up!

Heat tool by Stampin’ Up!

Some sort of glue. I used snail adhesiveglue dots and a bit of liquid glue for the corners near the punched areas.

Snail refills available here.


Step by step tutorial:

A piece of purple cardstock measuring 21cm x 5cm punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for the first layer.



For the second layer, I distressed the white piece of cardstock  measuring 19cm x 5cm, with the Festive Berries distress ink, and punched the corners with the Small heart punch saving the punched out hearts.



Because when we use the distress inks we always start from outside the paper, there is always ink left on the protective craft sheet. With a Stampin’ Spritzer Bottle, I sprayed a little bit of water on top of the ink left behind and rubbed my printed quote on it. Then I used the heat gun to dry it (if you don’t have a heat gun just allow it to fully dry). I then sponged the edges with the Seedless Preserves distress ink.

Sponging also the edges of the small hearts that I had punched out from the second layer 😉



With all layers ready,



All that I need it to do was… Yep, the gluing part to finish it off.
