Love is in the air

Love is in the air with Valentine's Day right around the corner.  This romantic couple can help you and your sweetie pie celebrate.

Three of the collage images on today's card are from the Victorian Valentines collage sheet.  The sentiment image is from the Mini Images Valentines.  I think they all work really well together.  

I started with a red panel of card stock and a gold doily.  I made this one out of a textured gold card stock but any size and color you choose will work very well.  The doily is glued to the center of the card stock and then I layered on the images.  

The heart surrounding the couple in love has a dotted design around the edges.  Perfect for embellishing with a little Stickles glitter glue.  The smaller ornate heart has a ring of flowers around the heart and I added gold Stickles to the center of each little flower.

There is a lot of red going on here so I used some foam adhesive to hold the little plain heart off the page and make it stand out.  Two little strips of gold border stickers add another touch of glitz.

Aren't these little pearl petite flowers cute?  Just the perfect accent for my Valentine card.  The whole panel is mounted on an off-white piece of card stock.

Supplies used:
Victorian Valentines collage sheet
Mini Images Valentines collage sheet
Stickles - your choice of colors
Pearl Petite Classic flowers
Border Design 2 stickers
Adhesives - glue, double sided tape & foam tape

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…
