Newton’s Nook Reveal Day #3

Hello everyone! Welcome to day three of the Newton’s Nook Designs May release; I am so happy you’ve stopped by! Today we are revealing the super cute Newton’s Book Club stamp set and I have created a set of fun bookmarks (or tags if you prefer!)


There are so many fun images and sentiments in this set; one of my favorite sentiments is “curl up with a good book”! I have always loved reading books since I was a kid; when I was young I used to read Nancy Drew mysteries. Nowadays when I read a fiction book, it’s a police/FBI/military crime solver with romance weaved in… love a good thriller!

When I saw the Newton’s Book Club set, I knew immediately I needed to make some cute bookmarks! To do so, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Essentials die set, which contains three different shaped tag dies that were the perfect size for these Newton’s Book Club images!

The tags are die cut from watercolor paper, as I wanted to do watercoloring with my Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolors. I stamped all the cats onto each tag/bookmark using Simon Says Stamp’s Intense Black ink. Because I wanted the bookmarks to coordinate, I used similar colors for each one.

After coloring each bookmark, I white heat embossed sentiments onto colored cardstock and fussy cut around the sentiments so I could adhere them to my bookmarks (for two of the bookmarks I did this; on the third I simply stamped the sentiment in black ink). I also stamped and watercolored a little red heart for each of the bookmarks (and fussy cut them each out).

Finally I added hole reinforcers (using the reinforcer die included in the Stitched Essentials die set) in matching cardstock colors and tied some coordinating bakers twine through the holes of each bookmark.

Really cute huh?? I certainly think they are! :D
