Easter Blessings

Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and since Easter is right around the corner I wanted to share a card I created using the past Mailbox Muse Magical Gypsy Bazaar Kit and Kunze German Scraps. I have never had the opportunity to use the German foil before but let me say this I love it!

I started by cutting and folding an embossed piece of green polka dot Bazzill cardstock to create a 5" x 5 1/2" cardbase.  Ink the edges of the 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" light green polka dot cardstock and adhere off center of the base along with the german foil white medallion.

I cut a 1 3/4" x  5 1/2" stripe of patterned cardstock and center and adhere along with the an pink piece of cardstock cut slightly larger than the gold german foil and adhere to the top of the card base.

I fussy cut the bunny from the Fresh Springtime printable, added a little Star Dust Stickles to the egg and adhered to the card along with the sentiment that I printed from the computer.

I finished the card off with punched out flowers, Easter Dew Drops and Star Dust Stickles and a mini egg and thread from my own personal stash.

There is even more supplies in the Mailbox Muse kits than you can imagine. Tons of cardstock, stamp set, embellishments, images and best part of all you can sign up for a membership and get it at a discounted price. So be sure to check past kits and while you are there sign up. Also be sure to check Kunze German Foil website for a wonderful assortment of German Foil.

Supplies Used:

Altered Pages: Mailbox Muse Magical Gypsy Bazaar Kit, Fresh Springtime printableStar Dust SticklesEaster Dew Drops
Other Supplies: Kunze German Foil, Thread, Mini Egg

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!

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…
