Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Hello friends, today I’m sharing a Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. If you love Artist Trading Cards then you will also love artist trading coins. These coins measure 2.50 inch in size and are circles. These coins make great embellishments, trade items, and gifts. Could also make these into magnets. There really isn’t a limit.

Process for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. Begin by adding ink to the edges of the 2.5 inch round cardstock pieces. Then flip over one and apply a bead of the Best Glue Ever around the edge. Set aside to dry for about 15 to 20 minutes until the glue is clear.

Apply ink to the edges of the digital image that was cut at 2.25 inches. Then apply the Best Glue Ever to the back of the image and attach to the second of the two and a half inch circle. Tip: Apply a small drop of the Best Cleaner ever to the pin for the lid of the No Clog Writing Cap, this will give added protection against the tip clogging.

Put a few drops of glitter paint over the flower images and spread with a paint brush. This gives a pretty touch of glitter that isn’t overpowering. Clean the brush with the Best Cleaner Ever and rinse with water.

Once the Best Glue Ever has become clear on the 2.50 inch circle apply lace. Make sure to pleat the lace, even if it is gathered. This will help the lace curve around the circle and give it a full look.

Spray the lace disk with Glimmer Mist of choice and allow to dry. Can use a heat tool to dry, but make sure not to get the tool to close to the lace.

Apply the Best Glue ever to the back of the digital image disk and sandwich the lace between the two disks. Add zig-zag stitches to hold all the layers and to add more interest.

Use a paper punched bird as embellishment and attach with the Best Glue Ever.

Add a drop of the Best Glue Ever using the No Clog Writing Cap to the eye area of the punched shape.

With the help of Embellie Gellie placing a flat back rhinestone for the eye is an easy task.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Artist Trading Cards (ATC) is a great way to try out a technique and to have on hand to trade with other artists. Today I’m sharing a Bird ATC Tutorial. Think of these ATC’s as a mini work of art. There is no wrong way to decorate an ATC, The only rule is the size 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Any medium can be used to create ATC’s today I’m showing how to use stamps and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Video Bird ATC Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Bird ATC Tutorial.

For this Bird ATC Tutorial, I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 2.25 x 3.25 inches. Using the Stamp Platform arrange the stamps and use the door of the platform to pick up the stamps.

Ink the stamps with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink and stamp card. Reapply ink if you didn’t get a good impression and stamp until you like the image on your card.

Then stamp the sentiment with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink. Stamp background with Distress Ink – Tea Dye.

Distress the edges of the card with the thread cutter or a distressing tool. Then using the Ranger Blending tool dipped into the Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists apply around the edge of the card.

Spray Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the white flower. Turn the flower over if you want to get full coverage on both sides. Dry with a heat tool or let air dry.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Apply Vintage Photo Distress ink to the Kraft ATC card edges with a Blending Tool.

Adhere the stamped card on the kraft ATC base with the Best Glue Ever.

Cut a piece of eyelash yarn and adhere with the Best Glue Ever. Add the flower on top of the eyelash yarn. The ATC is finished. If you are going to use this as a trading card then you can sign the back with your name, date made and any other information you want to share. I plan to pop this into a junk journal as another journal card.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this project and enjoyed the Bird ATC Tutorial.

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

One of my good friends Betz Golden came up with the idea of using retro art supplies from before 2008. This prompted us to do a blog hop and mine is Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards. It was fun looking through my stash to find items that I knew were from before 2008 (more than ten years old) for this project.

For my Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards I used a scrapbook kit from TLC (Top Line Creations) that was from 2005. I was a demonstrator for them for a few years and have a bunch of these kits, that I never used! Also found edger scissors that make the paper look like a postage edge.

Here is my video tutorial showing the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards.

Supply list for the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

Once I had the supply list it was time to figure out what was going to make and I decided to make ATC journal cards for the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards blog hop.

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

First I cut the red cardstock down to 2.5 x 3.5 inch. Then I proceeded to cut the pattern paper and white cardstock just slightly smaller than 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

One some of the journal cards I used old dictionary pages, I thought it gave it a vintage feel.

Two heart punches used with Red Glitter Cardstock helped to add a small accent without a lot of bulk.

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

Creating words on my Silhouette and keeping a stash of these handy helped to make this project go fast. It was easy to add a little word to each one.

There were enough supplies that I made 11 journal cards with the supplies. Making these Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards was a lot of fun! It has made me want to pull other kits out and see what I can make.

Spring Junk Journal Page Tutorial

We are having a Spring/Easter Junk Journal Page Swap inside the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group. When I can I like to make items and swap with other members. Today I decided that I would share a Spring Junk Journal Page Tutorial using Calico Collage Digital Images, Flower Elves digital ATC images. In the video I show you all four sizes I printed from the same digital file from Calico Collage.

Spring Junk Journal Page

Supplies used for the Spring Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The swap requirements are the following. The page should measure 8 inches tall by 10.50 inches wide or 5.25 when the page is folded closed. Next, it had to have a pocket/tuck spot and a journal card or tag.

Spring Junk Journal Page Spring Junk Journal Page

Knowing the requirements helps to get things started. First I selected images from Calico Collage an ATC digital sheet of images. Then I used my computer to crop and print different sizes of the images. The quality of the images allowed me to blow these images up to at least 5 x 7 without losing any of the quality of the image.

Spring Junk Journal Page Spring Junk Journal Page

Selecting a few of the images I then made elements. Using Distress Inks around the edges of the images and journal cards and then sewing around the edges with a black zig-zag stitch.

Spring Junk Journal Page Spring Junk Journal Page

Painting on paper gives it a new life. It is one of my favorite things to do, alter the paper to get a different look. When the paper is done it has a great surface that you can write upon.

Assembling the page is pretty easy once all the elements are made. Don’t you think this looks like Spring? It was a lot of fun to put this together. Sure hope my swap partner likes the page I created. 🙂

When I completed the page I had a few elements left over so I decided to make up a small junk journal kit. Ended up that I was able to put 30 items together. Check it out in my store.

Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards

As part of the Paper Crafters United (PCU) Facebook YouTube hope I’m sharing how to make Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards. Using a bright piece of pink paper, craft paint, rubber stamps and embossing powder I share how to alter paper for fun Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Mixed Media ATC’s or Journal Cards Supply List

Paper to paint – in my case it was a bright pink cardstock
Scraps of paper for punching or die cutting
Craft or Acrylic paint – don’t need fancy paint to make beautiful cards
Old Keycard or gift card – this is a fancy paint spreader
Various Rubber Stamps
Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven
Versamark ink pad
Embossing powder – I used a turquoise
Heat Embossing tool
Paper Cutter
Prima Stencil – Flourish
ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever
Distress ink – Black Soot
Blending Tool
EK Label Punch or any shape that you want to use
Ranger Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions Clear Stamps, 4-Inch by 8-Inch, Clearly The Right Words
MISTI

Here is a video showing how to make Mixed Media ATC’s Or Journal cards.

The method is very simple. Select a sheet of paper from your stash that you want to alter. Choose a few colors of paint and get your tools ready. It is a wise idea to protect your work surface, I use scrap paper, newspaper or even a Nonstick Craft Mat.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Squirt out a little of each color onto a pallet. Use the plastic card to spread the paint all over the sheet of paper. It is all random, don’t think about the placement of the paint, just cover the sheet of paper. For best results let the paper dry or use a heat embossing gun to dry the paint.

Select a stencil and lay over painted paper. Apply paint through the stencil with the same plastic card. Dry this layer before moving to the next step.

Stamp various images in Brutus Monore Detail ink – Raven on the painted paper. Stamp in all directions, again don’t think about placement, just fill some of the empty space.

Use the Versamark embossing pad with stamps on the paper. Apply the embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat emboss until all of the powder has turned shiny.

Once all the stamping has been completed trim the paper down to small cards that are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches in size.

Select scraps of paper and use the EK Sucess label punch or dies to cut shapes. Place these shapes in the MISTI and stamp with the chosen saying or quote with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven.

Apply Black Soot Distress ink around the edges of the cards and the labels with a distressing tool.

Adhere the sayings with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever.

Enjoy the cards you made! If the back side of the papers is not clean enough for writing then I like to attach a blank piece of paper cut to the same size as the card.

Mixed Media ATC's or Journal Cards

Once you get started making these you will end up with a large stash as it is addictive!

June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps

Here is the June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps from the June 2017 new release. This space themed stamp set is super cute!  I decided that it would be perfect for an ATC today.

June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps

Supplies used for the June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps
Lucky Star
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink
Embossing Ink
Sterling Embossing Powder
Chameleon Markers
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Surface ink
Pop dots
Self adhesive Rhinestones
MISTI

When I saw this stamp set in my Brutus Monroe Design Team box it made me smile. I didn’t have any space themed stamps and I’ve been wanting to play with a few. Thankful that I got this set to take for a spin.

I did create a video for the June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps.

Making this card is very easy. So long has you have a few of the supplies handy. But if you don’t have all of the supplies try to find other items you could use instead. For example, if you don’t have the surface inks and want to make the background like I did try using a dark blue cardstock as the foundation. Then add Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on top. It will change the look of the paper. You could also use star embossing folder background.  To feel you are limited on what you can use.

I was glad to use a few of the yellow rhinestones from the sheet of multi colored stones. Sometimes I feel that I need all of the colors and then I only use clear. But using the yellow rhinestones help the stars to pop on this ATC. Don’t you agree?

As always my hope is that you were inspired by the June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps ATC I made today.

June 24th ATCAD2017 Using Brutus Monroe Stamps

St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin

Seeing really cool Loaded envelopes on the web recently I decided I should make one. So Here is my St Patricks Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin.

Glue the bottom half of the Shamrock but not up into the center just around the lower half with white glue. Don’t use tape, if you do your items will stick to the tape.

Pin St Patrick’s Day Lady ATC to the front of the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope.
