calling all bibliophiles...

Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown. It's another group post today and we are all sharing projects perfect for all of the bibliophiles out there using there new book themed products that are being released this month.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on July 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


Reading and books are a favorite thing of mine and so I loved creating projects to share today with the bibliophile theme. The book cover takes a card for a book lover to the next level and the book themed sentiments were perfect for creating a bookmark (that I might just keep for myself!) 


Here's a closer look at the card. I die cut the base from kraft cardstock with the new Book Cover die and added a "wrap" around the spine of the book with some paper from the Beautiful Beads paper collection - I just die cut the portion that I wanted with the Book Cover die.


I did the title portion of my card with a sort of chalkboard look by embossing the sentiment and details from the Book Cover Details stamp set with white embossing powder onto True Black cardstock. A bit of ribbon to look like a book marker was the perfect embellishment to finish off this book card!


What's one of the most perfect gifts for a bibliophile to go with their books? A book mark of course. I pulled out the Bookmark die and die cut the base of the bookmark with kraft cardstock. I kept with my chalkboard look for the sentiment part of my bookmark and embossed the quote from Jane Austen onto True Black cardstock with white embossing powder. 


I used the same patterned paper on the bookmark as I did for the spine of my book card and added a tassel that I made with some embroidery floss.


You can see more new products from the Papertey Ink July release and projects created with them over at Nichole's blog. You will be able to link up to other design team members to see the bibliophile themed projects that they are sharing today and also to the stamp designers who have new products to share this month.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with more to share!
