Faerie Song Cards

Hello everyone!  Barbara here today.  I hope your week is off to a good start.  I have a couple of cards to share again, using these wonderful rubber stamps from our partner, Faerie Song Art Stamps.  I think you will find that these stamps work wonderfully together with Altered Page's products!  



Castle in the Forest Card:



I first stamped the Castle in the Forest image onto one of the Collage Background I images with Vintage Sepia ink.  The image fits perfectly, as you can see below.  Of course, if you get the digital collage images, you can resize them to whatever size you need.




After stamping, I trimmed around the image to fit an A2 size card that I made from pink card stock.  I always use my Scor Pal to make the center fold crease for crisp folds.  I also cut a piece of the Adhesive Corrugated kraft card slightly larger than the stamped image.  

I resized and fussy cut the fairy image to fit onto my forest scene.



Before adhering the layers to my card with the Double Side Tape Mini, I edged the stamped image first with the leather mixed media ink, then again with the gold Delicata ink.  When you do them together, the brown tones down the gold and makes it more antique looking.  Love that look.



Lastly, I computer generated the phrase I found on the internet, punched it out and adhered to the card.

"A rustle in the wind
reminds us a fairy is near!"

I had some gold leaf trim sitting on my desk so I added that with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  

Bryony Fairy Card:


For this card, I again used my Scor Pal to make a blue folded A2 size card.  I cut a piece of print paper from the Botanical Odyssey paper pad and edged it with the Leather ink, then the gold, just as I did in the first card.

Bryony was stamped onto white card with Versafine black ink and colored using Gelatos with a water brush.  These paints are so creamy and nice, and so very easy to use.  After I die cut the image into a nice shape, I also edged it with the same inks as before.  I adhered it with Adhesive Dimensionals.

I fussy cut a butterfly from another sheet from the Botanical Odyssey paper and adhered it, along with some pretty Assorted Flowers.  

Shimmer was added to the wings of all fairies and butterflies.

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…
