Birdie Love

I love all of the collages available at Altered Pages, I can not have one favorite , but the bird one's are just adorable ! I was in the card making mood & these little birdies were staring at me , wanting to get used !!!! I used #2125 Little Spring Birdies and # 1561 Birds with hats !I first created a background using Punchinella and a blending tool , loaded ink ( your color choice) and did various designs ! I also inked the edges. Then gave a quick spritz of clear glitter spritz...spray again your choice of product , I just wanted a little glitz ! I used my bird cage die from Altered Pages ...love love these dies !! I used glue to attach onto my background , added my birdies I had cut out with the crowns , after I glue them on I added some glitter to the crowns.
The sweetest ever little group of birdies gathered for a visit were also attached using my tape gun , I put pearls on each corner .


 I used a die cut banner and stamped the word "listen" , I taped this also to the card on top of some tape  !

All done and ready to use !!  Hope you are inspired to create some cards ! I like to have some on hand for any occasion , ready to use !! Using collages from Altered Pages makes it even more easy & quick !
Have a delightful day !

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.


Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
