Butterfly Effect Stamps | Handmade Bookmark

Hello! It’s almost the weekend! Yay! We hope you have some good things planned. Ericka is here on the blog today with a gorgeous handmade bookmark created with our stunning BUTTERFLY EFFECT stamps…


Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well. Summer is in full swing at my house which means some time to relax and hopefully read a couple of books. What better way to keep track of my page than to create a bright and pretty bookmark with the Visible Image ‘Butterfly Effect’ stamp set.

To start making my bookmark, I took out a leftover background I had made using Distress Oxides in Kitsch Flamingo and Savage Patina and a brayer. I then added the smaller images from the Butterfly Effect stamp set in the same colours of Distress Inks. I then added some WOW! Embossing clear powder to add a little dimension.



I stamped the butterflies on Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed in WOW! Embossing Carnival which is a pretty dark blue with sparkle. I then used my Zig watercolor pens to watercolour them. Once my images were dry, I cut them out and added to my tag.



I added the sentiment from the set and added a big pink ribbon I had in my stash.

Design Team Intro | Ericka Strange

Hello! As we continue to introduce our new BIGGER Design Team this week, we are thrilled that another of our existing designers is staying on the team…


Ericka Strange


Ericka is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


We adore Ericka’s vibrant compositions and her wonderful [and often very sparkly] embossing!



I’ve been making cards for 5 years and love working with a variety of mediums, getting inky and creating colorful backgrounds. It is so fun being part of such an encouraging and kind crafting community.

I hope you are all doing well. Today I have a fun bookmark/tag I made for my daughter. She’s a first grader and we’ve been working on reading chapter books and asked me to make a bookmark for her. Of course the perfect stamp set for a girl’s bookmark is the Visible Image Believe In Unicorns set.

I love this image as well as the great sentiment. I had the perfect background I had previously made using acrylic paints and a brayer and started by taking the unicorn image and stamping it with WOW! Embossing ink. I used the Emerald Creek Gold Sparkle embossing powder for the unicorn because it is both gold and sparkly!

I then stamped the stars around the image and heat embossed them with Emerald Creek Arctic Daybreak which is a white with gold flecks.



I stamped then created a black tag using cardstock and attached my background. I stamped the sentiment in the same Arctic embossing powder. I used my black pen to trace around the image and the “believe” to make it stand out more and then added some white gel pen to the middle of the unicorn.



My little reader is so excited to start her new chapter book with this fun bookmark.
