A Faerie Sweet Card and Tag

Hello everyone!  It's Monday again, so it's Barbara here with another project for you.  I am still in card making mode, so today, I want to share another Valentine's Day card plus matching tag with you.   This month, we are proud to have Faerie Song Art Stamps as our sponsor.  Their stamps are deeply etched red rubber, and the selection of faeries is out of this world (no pun intended). 



Cut a 12x12 piece of blueish green card stock in half, then use your ScorPal scoring board to score in half for a 6x6 folded card. 


Fussy cut around one of the Kaisercraft Botanical Odyssey Papers to fit the front of the card, ink edges with Leather Mixed Media Salazar Inkx using the Ranger Blending Tool and adhere it with Double Side Tape Mini.



Die cut scalloped heart shape from pink polka dot paper and a solid heart from the blue print paper with the Scallop Heart die.  Adhere the two hearts together with Double Side Tape Mini and use a Pigma Micron Pen to make a faux stitching line around the top heart.

Fussy cut a heart from the Heart of my Heart collage sheet and ink edges with Leather Mixed Media Salazar Inkx using the Ranger Blending Tool.  Adhere a piece of chipboard beneath it for added strength and Adhesive Dimensionals to raise it up off the card front.  This always gives nice dimension.



Stamp Elly from Faerie Song Art Stamps onto a piece of acrylic paper with black Stazon midi ink pad.  Color image with Gelatos and a water brush.  Do the same onto a piece of scrap white paper, leaving enough room around the image to cut out a tag shape.



Fussy cut image and edge with black Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen.    Adhere to card with Adhesive Dimensionals, as shown.

Make a double loop bow using the Sheer Ribbon and adhere to card front, as shown.  Stamp sentiment onto scrap of white card stock with Pink Neon Ink Pad and adhere to card front, as shown.



Stamp Elly from Faerie Song Art Stamps onto a piece of scrap white paper with black Stazon midi ink pad, leaving enough room around the image to cut out a tag shape. Color image as before.

For the tag, use the Nesting Frames 2 die to cut one large shape from the blueish green card stock and the next size down from the white sheet with the image stamped onto it.  I love this die because it is so versatile. It can be used a a pretty label, a rectangle if you cut both ends off, or a beautiful tag if you cut one end off, as I have shown. 



Cut the bottom portion of both pieces off to form a straight bottom on the tag.  Adhere both together, punch a hole in the top center of the tag with a craft punch.  String Baker's Twine through the hole and attach to your gift.




Add a variety of Dew Drops for added magic.

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…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.


YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.


# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
