Bookmark & More with the 2022-2024 InColors!

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing projects made with the 2022-2024 InColors!

I’ve got two projects to share, with multiple variations of each. The first project is my NEW 2022-2024 InColors bookmarks. The second project is a set of cards each of which features one of these new colors! Each year when the InColors come out I just love creating a bookmark. I started this tradition back in 2014 as a small gift for my club members. In one of the early years, I decided not to make one and it was pretty clear my club members were pretty disappointed. I’ve not skipped a year since and now I make them for other customers as well!

Later in this post, you’ll learn about the THREE WAYS you can get one of my 2022-2024 InColors bookmarks of your very own!

Plus, if you want to make your own, you’ll also find a link to my FREE PDF downloadable document below!

Check out the amazing new 2022 - 2024 InColors! In Today's post you'll see these colors featured on my InColor Bookmark and a set of 5 cards!

I’ve made these bookmarks using the Bottled Happiness Bundle which is also new to the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.

Now the trickiest part of making a bookmark like this is figuring out the spacing of the printed color names.

My goal is to show the ink stamped on white cardstock, the ink stamped on the same color of cardstock, and the cardstock without any ink on it. It’s a lot to fit into a small space! By stamping and punching out the bottle images I can show each color of cardstock, and the ink stamped onto each color as well.

On the version below I decided to show the 2022-2024 InColors in yet another way!

Can you see the second lighter stamped images next to each of fully inked images? In the piece below I’ve simply used the residual ink on my stamp to stamp a second time. This simply gives me a lighter shade of ink and adds some dimension to the piece. I love using multiple generations of ink to get ever lighter shades of the same color!

Some tips on how I created my bookmark:

So I always start by printing out a sheet of 5 bookmarks on regular paper, with my color names placed in 5 different positions relative to one another. I do this so I can stamp, lay my punched pieces out and figure out what will work best before printing on my cardstock. After I test a few configurations I then can print out multiple sheets on Basic White cardstock.

For today’s bookmark, once I figured out my spacing, I created a “stamping guide” for myself so I could make multiple bookmarks with ease!

Here’s how I created my “stamping guide”:

  • Cut a piece of cardstock measuring ¾” x 7-⅝” (the same size as the stamped bookmark.
  • Lay the piece to the side of a finished bookmark and make a pencil line along the edge of the cardstock where the top of each punched bottle piece is on the finished bookmark.
  • Use your paper snips to cut a small notch in from the left or right (whichever side the punched bottle is justified to).
  • Place your “stamping guide” piece directly over the finished bookmark and make a small vertical line where the center of the top of the punched bottle is.
  • Now you can lay this “stamping guide” piece over each unstamped cardstock bookmark piece to make a small pencil line. This will help you to know where to stamp the foliage image so the stem is centered at the top of the neck of the punched bottle.
  • The piece below and on the left is ready to stamp!

Tip: Only ink up the top 2/3 of the image so you don’t end up with the inked stem showing below the punched bottle.

Check out my video at the end of this post to see how this bookmark is made.

This first card is made with Orchid Oasis ink, cardstock, and designer paper and was CASED (Copy And Share Everything) from the talented Mary Fish!

She is the master of the Clean & Simple Card! Rarely do I completely copy another demonstrator’s design but in this case, I love her card as is. That said, I did change one small detail. I used rhinestone jewels as an alternative to the embellishment she used. I also made versions of this card with all the other 2022-2024 InColors.
