Lost Coast Designs ~ One Stamp Several Views

This month our design team at Altered Pages is really excited to be partnering with Lost Coast Designs a rubberstamp company.    I must say I love the quality of their stamps. 

Today I have decided to use the Lost Coast Designs Zentangle Feather #3 Stamp on several cards and tags.  Hopefully to inspire you to use one stamp with different techniques to get amazing results.

I have stamped directly on a Gel Press Print, on vintage text, plain manila tags, misted a manila tag, torn text, and fussy cut a feather.

  For the first two cards I stamped on Vintage Text Paper. 
The first one the image was cut and matted from the text page.
 The second one the text was dampened with water and then torn from the page.

Sunshine in My Soul 8x8 Paper Pad was used as the mat on both cards. Brown Ink was used to distress the mat on the first card.  The mat on the second card was lined with a gold pen, the bird is from the  Altered Pages Vintage Birds Collage Sheet, also Metallic Luster Wax was applied to the feather. The paper was adhered with Double Sided Tape, the images adhered with Glue StickRibbon  and Fabric Flower were used to embellish them.
The background on the cards above are from Gel Press prints created a few months ago using acrylic paint.  
The first card was stamped directly on the Gel Press Print.

The second feather image was stamped on white card stock and fussy cut! 
The Gel Press Prints were lined with a silver pen.  The first card is elegant with out any embellishments.   The second card has a ribbon across the top that appears to be tied to the feather.  The fussy cut feather is attached with Dimensional Foam
Finally, there are two Manila Tags, great to add to a gift bag or present. On both the image was stamped directly on the tags.  The first one was sprayed with two different Spray Mists before stamping. The second to stamped on the tag with out any embellishing.

Hope you have been inspired
to try different techniques using your stamps!
Be sure to stop by every day this month for more inspiration!

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…
