Giveaway Alert!!!! Fun Friday!!


I, it's Karen Conner here today!
Friday's are always the best day of the week. Last day to work. First start to the weekend.
What can be more fun?? Right?
 
I've recently lost my job and had an excessive amount of business cards laying around.
I decided to make something with them!
 
I glued them face to face and had enough to make little booklets.
I made a total of 7 booklets.
 
After they had dried, I laid them out on scratch paper and using a brayer, I laid the acrylic paint onto the surface with the brayer.  You get different shades and different amounts-that's ok.
I used a blend of light green, yellow and vanilla.
 
I let it dry really well.
They I stamped some dots here and there with momento ink.
 
They I embossed with glitter some stamped flowers.  Just stamped them randomly on one side only.
I kept one side with just the paint so I could add my scriptures to them.
I've been doing a bible study call "Living so that" by Wendy Blight.  It was terrific!  I'll be sending her one and one to P31 readers.  Thought I'd give one away here on our blog as well.  Please leave me your email in the comment section if your interested in receiving one of these handy little books.

You can purchase glue, acrylic paints, embossing pads and inks, flowers and all the supplies I've used to make my little books.  I put them together with my Cinch.  They turned out really cute!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
