Now for some FUN!!!
Today for the shoppers I have an ATC made with one of the Jolee's dimensional  sticker packs....
I was happy when PARIS came my way!
 

 

Gather your Supplies, I used the following:
ATC ECHO Art Board
Mist
"Paris" from the Muse Paris stamp set
Petaloo Flowers
Jolee's Dimensional Stickers
Shimmer Spritz Frost
Dew Drops Plumeria
Tacky Glue
Black ink

 
First, I covered the  ATC ECHO Art Board with water then heavily sprintz it with my Mist, let it dry.  If you have a heat tool you can use it to speed drying, if you do don't hold it too close to the project (it may burn it).  Once dry, with black ink stamp "Paris" from the Muse Paris stamp set.
 
 
Add the Eiffel Tower from the Jolee's Dimensional Stickers pack.  Adhere Petaloo Flowers with Tacky GlueSpritz the flowers and card with Shimmer Spritz Frost, for a beautiful finish on the card.
 
 
Randomly add Dew Drops Plumeria around the Petaloo Flowers
 
TRICK: I use plastic lids to pour out my Dew Drops, this keeps them in one place and easier to pick up, as I can pour them into my hand instead or trying to pick them up one at a time!



Hope you enjoyed to day....

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…
