Earrings made with stamps!

I love getting to say this every two weeks.....Happy Friday Friends!

Today I have a quick little earring project for you using
Altered Pages supplies (see the list below)  



Please check my supply list below for everything you might need to make
your very own version including the links to find the items.

I start out with a pair of sterling silver mini hoops that I just love because I am able to add little bobbles and beads to customize my look.  I just remove one bobble and exchange it with another.This is how they looked when I started. 
I love the asymmetry of them with the cute little charms.

 

I started by using the 1 inch Eco Board and used E6000 to glue large silver rings/jewelry findings to the backs of the Eco Board to allow for hanging. 
I allowed this to dry for a few hours.  I then painted the back and side edges with silver metallic paint.  


Next, I painted the Eco Board pink with silver accents.

In the above picture, I hung them with pink and black beads, but below you can see another option using turquoise and rhinestone beads.  You can see how the possibilities are endless.


Here is a little sample of how to create your own dangles 

   

And, here is the final product with the cute winged heart stamped image.
This was stamped right over the pink and silver acrylic paint 
using my Jet Black StazOn.


 In this picture below you can see the side edge with silver metallic paint and a bit of black paint for a pretty border.  
It just gives it that little pop to set off the sweet heart image.


I hope you enjoyed this quick little earring project.  Now, there is no excuse to not have a pair of earrings ready to go in every color...all you need is a great pair of hoops, some creative juices, and supplies from Altered Pages!

Have a beautiful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by...

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…

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…

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 …
