Transparency Bookmarks

First of all, I would liked to wish all my blog reader a wonderful and fabulous New Year! May we venture into 2008 with lots of fun and creative ideas!

These are some transparency bookmarks that I've created for some very generous and wonderful friends of mine. Each and every of these bookmarks are created using clear or pre-printed transparency.

Here are some of the details on each of the bookmark.

"Thanks" bookmark:

1. First I've stamped on the per-printed transparency using white acrylic paint. Then I've separately cut out a black card stock using the same oval shape and stamped on it. Later, I've pasted both piece together.

2. I've added some details by doodling on it and adding a flower and a sticker butterfly to it.

"Treasure" bookmark:1. First of all, I've cut out a white card stock according to the oval shape of the pre-printed transparency. Then I've stamped on it using various stamps and cut it out. Later, I've attached both piece together.

2. I've added a flower, sequins and some other embellishment to it. This will gives a more detailed look to it.

"Hello" bookmark:1. I've used a white acrylic paint and a flourish stamp to stamp on the pre-printed transparency. Then I've cut out a piece of black card stock and stamped some flowers on it too. Attach both piece together.

2. I've added some details by doodling on it. For more dimensions, I've also added some flowers and a sticker.
"Friendship" bookmark:1. I've used a clear transparency for this bookmark. First I've used some acrylic paints to stamp and mask on it. Then, I've painted the edges of it using some black acrylic paints too.

2. I've cut out some flowers and stamped on them for this bookmark. I've doodled all around the bookmark for more interest. Lastly, I've cut out a piece of black card stock and paste to the back of the bookmark.

I've had some fun creating these bookmarks and I hope the recipients would put it to better use instead of cards.

Your bookmarks are absolutely gorgeous. Way to pretty to actually use. I have never tried using transparencies. Guess I need to give it a try and see what happens. Your bookmarks are so creative and you did a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing them with us. Hugs, DebD

These are awesome, where did you get the precut transparencies???

Hi Danisha,

Thank you for the sweet comment that you've left me. The transparencies are not pre-cut. They are all hand cut by me. I've just sued an oval template that I've created using Microsoft Words and cut it out. Have fun!

Hi Nadhrah,

Those are just some pre-printed transparency that I've bought from a local bookstore. I did not print it myself. Hope this helps!

Irene... these are very eye-catching bokmarks and I love the colours and all the embellishments!
You always made me look around for ready materials that we have at home to use for scrapping... LOL!

Irene... what do you mean by pre-printed transparencies... are you printing a design off on them, then cutting them out? and then that is considered you base.. I really would like to try these too.. I am soo loving these.. they are so beautiful that beautiful even falls short to describe them!.... Nina

Hi Nina,

As you did not leave me any email addy, I would just have to answer your question here. The pre-printed transparencies are already pre-printed when I bought them from a local bookstore here. Therefore I did not print on it myself. Hope this helps!
