It is time to start thinking of making handmade Christmas cards for those special people on your card list.  When creating your cards be sure to check out all the seasonal items we have at AlteredPages.com



Today I am sharing a card made with this cute Reindeer Stamp called "Special Delivery".  Stamp the image on white card stock with black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Color image with Copics. Tear the image from card stock, making it a little larger then an ATC. Distress edges with brown ink.

Layer Green Two Scoops Cardstock and Hello December Pattern Paper on card base with Double Sided Tape. Adhere image to the card.  Print the  Altered Pages ATC Decorative Borders Collages Sheet on Craft Attitude™ printable film.  Cut out the frame you choose to use.  With the printed side down adhere over the stamped image on the card.



Add the Mini Edge Red border on the bottom and the Merry Christmas Banner from Glitz Hello December What Nots.  With VeraMark ink the Chip Board Snowflakes and heat emboss with white embossing powder, attach clear Dew Drops to the center with Tacky Glue.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

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 ab
