Marie Antoinette Falls for Halloween

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya.  It is hard to believe that fall and cooler weather is right around the corner but I am here to share some rolodex cards using some Halloween and Fall printables  with Marie Antoinette thrown in for fun and some leftover cardstock from previous Mailbox Muse kits.



Everything that was used to create these rolodex cards are listed below in the supply list.
For the first rolodex card I fussy cut one of the Marie Antoinette, jack-o-lantern and butterfly wings. I adhered the butterfly wings to the back of Marie and then glued the jack-o-lantern in Marie's hand. I added black thread to the back before I adhered to the card. For the rolodex card I used a diecut and leftover cardstock from a few of my Mailbox Muse kits.You can also use rolodex cards that you can buy at your local office supply place and alter with cardstock. I also added a little Stickles to the butterfly wings for some shimmer.


The next two rolodex card bases I cut from Vintage Words printable. I fussy cut a Marie and jack-o-lantern out and glued Marie inside of the pumpkin. Then I printed the sentiment from the computer which I cut apart and cut a banner from the Beware! sentiment and glued to pearl top pin. I then adhered to the back of Marie and then adhered to the rolodex. I added the rest of the sentiment, thread and a little Stickles to finish this card off.



For the last rolodex I fussy cut Marie and a set of leaves out. Before gluing the leaves to the backside of the image I shaped and added a little Stickles to the veins of the leaves. I added scraps of cardstock, a sentiment that I printed from the computer and a piece of German foil trim with flat back pearls from my own stash to finish off this card off.


If you have any questions about these rolodex cards please let me know.

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…
