Is Being a Witch a Bad Thing?



"You say I am a witch like it is a bad thing"


Altered Pages Design Team members are having a great time partnering with SinCity Stamps and their Design Team this month!!! I hope you have been inpired by all the great projects this month!

Today I am working with the Window Chipboard Shrine designed by Barbara Rankin.  This was a really fun project.

To start, I used my bone folder and created a score-line where I wanted to fold the shrine. Then I inked all the edges, including the fold creases and back. In this post if I mention stamping, everything is stamped with black  ink.
      

Cover the three panels with pattern cardstock. Before adhering... stamp images on the pattern paper, center panel has the Winged Skeleton stamped and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Print the Altered Pages Collage Sheet "H"is for Halloween on Craft Attitude Printable film. Cut out the "H" you desire to use and adhere with glue stick. 


Cover the shrine window with tacky glue and sprinkle with Vintage Glass Glitter - Lavender. Set aside to dry.  Once dry add foam dots (here they are double stacked). Glue paper raven to the back of the frame and set aside to dry. 

Stamp Pumpkin Hot Air Balloon directly on the panel and on a white piece of paper and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Using Copics color the image stamped on the white paper. Fussy cut the witch in the pasket and the pumpkin balloon with the cat on top.  Adhere these to the card. 


Stamp sentiment Witch Phrase, "You say I am a witch like it is a bad thing"on the third panel. Add felt raven and Glitz Large Rhinestones Raven

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…
