HeART Cards



When I think of Peace, Kindness & Love I think of HEARTS.  I decided to try resist painting with embossing powder and Gelatos.




Heart shaped stamps
Gelatos
Water Brush
Gold Embossing Powder
Red Embossing Powder
Ink
Cherry Mist
Wink of Stella Silver
Watercolor paper
Heat tool

FIRST HeART CARD

Stamp with ink, heat emboss with gold powder on watercolor paper.

Use pink gelato, rub it on a palate and use the water brush thin it until there aren't any bits of the gelato.  Paint over the gold embossing.   

Spritz the card with the red spray.
 

Spray  with water, wipe the heart with a paper towel. Dry with heating tool.
 
 Love all the effect of the water on the card!

 
 
 
 
SECOND CARD
 
 Stamp with ink, heat emboss with red powder on watercolor paper.
 
On this card I first spritzed it with water, then sprayed it with the red spray and dabbed it dry with a paper towel.  Using a red gelato painted over the heart, then used the heat tool to dry.

Last  painted the heart with Wink of Stella.
 

Pull out your gelatos and play with them!!!

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.

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 …
