Gel a Tins with Authentique Paper

23 Feb

I had such a fun time with this card.  I blew the dust off the ole Cricut and used the Create a Critter cartridge.

I am using all Authentique Papers from the 2 lines called:

Gathering & Celebrate

I am using the Gel a tins stamps called:

Love Knots

First, I embossed the stamp onto a piece of paper in black.

I adhered it to my card front as shown below.

 Next I embossed the Love Knots stamp onto the tree branch and phrase in white.

Then comes the fun part…putting the card together.

A close up of the darling owl!  Isn’t it adorable??

To keep the card closed, I used a homemade repositionable glue dot under the bottom of the owl.

 It lies nice and flat and opens nice an easily:)

I hope you like this as much as I do…

A love story with Gel-à-tins

12 Jan

I am soooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it!

I have gotten lots of new gel-à-tins stamps to play with.

Today I am using the stamp called Love Knots.

Here is a peak at the set.

My hubby and I will celebrate our 23rd anniversary this year and when I saw this LOVE KNOTS stamp, I knew I wanted to make an anniversary card for him.

I started by stamping and embossing the image in white on vellum.

I wanted to make it look like a tree with our initials carved in it…but this is the 2nd best thing I could come up with.

Oh how I LOVE RED!!  I think this all works so perfectly together!

I just adored working with this cute stamp and can’t wait to show you more things with the new sets I have to play with!  Be sure to come back and see what set I use next time!

We’d love to hear from you.  Leave a link in your comment if you’d like!

 I’d love to hear your ideas!
