Sisters and Friends Wall Hanging

Hello all!  Hope your week is off to a good start.  This month, we are featuring some really fabulous rubber stamps from Rubber Stamp Depot and combining them with the awesome products from Altered Pages.

I made this cute 6"x6" wall hanging to use as a display piece or to give as a gift.  Enamorado means "In Love", and when I look at this, I see two loving friends or  sisters, reading books to each other.  Wouldn't this make a wonderful gift to a sister or girl friend.  

Cut a piece of black mat board and a piece of Olé Burrito paper to 6" x 6" square.  Distress the edges and ink them with the Leather Mix'd Media ink pad.  

Ink Sister Secrets rubber stamp with the Black Stazon Midi ink pad and stamp directly onto an ATC sized piece of Eco board.

Use peach and pink colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the girls' skin.

Use yellow and ochre colored Gelatos with a water brush to color their hair.

Use blue and pink colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the girls' dresses.

Use brown and black colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the bench, and green to color the girls' books.

Use pastel pink and pastel green colored Gelatos with a water brush to color the background.

Use black colored Gelato to edge the eco board and blend out with your finger.  

Use Ochre colored Gelato  to add a golden glow to the background to make it match the Enamored label.   

Cut a piece of the Adhesive Corrugated card stock slightly larger than the Enamorado label and edge with the Schoolhouse Red Mix'd Media ink pad.  


Adhere the label to the corrugated card and adhere the two pieces to the top of the mat board.  Leave room at the top to punch two holes and attach eyelets.  Glue the stamped eco board piece below that, as shown.

Thread a length of Sari Silk Ribbon through the holes for hanging.  

Cut a large pink flower in half and glue to either side of the eco board.  Glue a smaller blue flower in fourths and glue to the pink flower, as shown.

Glue the yellow flower on top on each side, and add a large pearl gem to each flower center.

Fussy cut two small flower bouquets, edge with a black Big Brush Pen, and adhere to the label with foam dots.

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…
