Invitation bookmarks

Hi everyone,

I have been soooo busy, hence no time for blogging or for that matter crafting! My Mum has just been down for a week (which was lovely) and I have had a few casual days teaching at my school so that is why I have been MIA! However I have rectified that problem now and have something to show you.

It is my son’s 4th birthday in about 2 weeks and his birthday invites have been weighing on my mind, so yesterday I just sat down and made them all! I decided to do a bookmark with the invitation stuck on the back which can easily be removed so each child has a bookmark with their name on it to keep! Clever huh?  My son loves this little car stamp from Kaisercraft and I had fun making them applicable for both the boys and girls we are inviting to his party.

The cars are coloured in with either copics or prismacolor pencils (as my copic supply is quite limited) and all are raised slightly on 3D foam. The cars have glossy accents on the spots and windows and I used glossy accents on the bunting which I made with scraps of paper.

It was quite hard taking a decent photo of them all so this is the best I could come up with.

And just a close up of each side of the invitation.

And I blurred out a few of the details for privacy reasons.


Stamps: Kaisercraft – small car wooden stamp, Playful Serie – Scrappy Cat alphabet stamps
Ink: Versacolor Ink – Onyx Black
White card, Bazzill card for bookmark – a variety of colours from my stash
Other Supplies: Copic Markers, prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, ribbon – different colours and widths from my stash, various design paper scraps (for bunting), foam dimensionals, glossy accents, felt pen, ruler, printer, white paper, double sided sticky tape

Well the busy season is definitely about to hit full throttle! My son is turning 4 on December the 8th, my daughter is turning 1 on Christmas Eve, Christmas shopping and wrapping and card making  to do, a wedding anniversary in there as well and to top it off we have having Christmas with my brother and sister-in-law who live 1200kms away! I booked my flights today…but my hubby and son are driving!! Got to love this time of the year!!

Until next time,



  1. These are brilliant! What an adorable stamp!

  2. What a great idea!! So cute! Hope you have a happy day with your son !!
