Another 2016 milestone!

Here we are at another milestone in 2016... Daylight Savings!  Time sure flies... it seems like yesterday we set the clocks back... If you live in the United States (not Hawaii or Arizona) today is the day we change our clocks forward an hour.  For dates around the world check out this site, Daylight Savings Around the World.
Talking about time, we have a wonderful Mailbox Muse Time stamp set!
Here is an ATC using a time stamp with CASTLES of all AGES collage image!
Before starting cut the castle image from the Altered Pages Castles of the Ages Collage Sheet.
Golden Opulence sticker

Use Chalk Paint - Timeless on the  Echo Art Board, then apply a thin layer of Gel MediumLay the image of the castle on the ATC and burnish it carefully.   

Apply a thin layer of Gel Medium over the image, with Chalk Paint - Timeless lightly go around the edges of the image to frame it.  Add a  Golden Opulence sticker to the upper left corner.  Adhere dew drops to lower right.

While the Gel Medium is still sticky add bits of  Gold Leaf.  Note: once I opened my package of Gold Leaf I keep it in a plastic container... it is almost impossible to get it back in the package and makes it easier to use.

Let the Gel Medium dry.  When dry stamp theMailbox Muse Stamp - Watch from ATC set with Black Ink.

Edge the Echo Art Board with Black Ink!  Let dry over night before mailing.

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 …
