August 4 Ustream Recap



Wow we had a fantastic time last Monday night. Lots of Yummy techniques using our Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, Gesso, Gel Medium, and Glaze from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®, Bo Bunny Sentiments, Heidi Swapp Stencil, and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. 


As always thank you to the Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique for managing the sales of the kits, and to their amazing Design Team for promoting and following up with future posts using these products!

In the show we created 4 very different card designs!


On this card, I showed you how to avoid "mud" and create colorful backgrounds.  We mixed the Margarita and Watermelon Gelatos® to create this lovely orange that we mixed with the Whipped Spackle for texture and depth. I also demoed how to resist with Gesso. 


I showed how the Gelatos® look on a black cardstock.  I love that they look just like chalk!  So pretty. This card could easily be a masculine card by changing out the feminine colors. 


On this card, we did a resist with embossing powder.  I also showed you how to combine stamps in the set to create a word cloud effect, and interesting background! 


And finally we used the Gelatos® as a watercolor medium. Sometimes "Mud" is what you really want. Like when I created the tree branch above.   So I showed you how to use the Margarita Mix, Snow Cone, and Raspberry Gelatos® to create a pastel brown. 

Congrats to our winner - Jeanie Ellis on being our winner of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mixed Media Kit!

Here is a link to the Playlist with all three parts of the video tutorial.


In addition to the supplies above, I also used the following:

  • Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® PITT® Stamper's Big Brush Artist Pen in Black
  • Studio Calico - Wood Veneer Bird
  • Cardstock  Black, White, and Cream
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Jacket - James' set
  • Twine
  • Die-Namite Dies Flowering Branch Die
  • Die-Namite Dies Swirly Butterfly
  • Prima Flower
  • Sequins
  • Tissue Paper (white)
  • Butterfly Stamp (brand unknown)
  • Stampendous Dream Text Stamp
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the show live.  I hope those of you joining in the recordings have as much fun as we did live.   Share with me in the comments below how you use your Gelatos®.

The September Ustream Kit is up for sale now!  Make sure you grab yours before it is gone!

Full Bloom Chalkboard for Faber Castell Design Memory Craft



Hi everyone,  I'm super excited to bring  you today's project. I've created this Chalkboard Art that would make an awesome gift for someone.   This project is one of those that started out being one thing and ended up being something totally different.  I started out wanting to make watercolor card gift sets to share with friends. But when I finished the Art Panel it was just too beautiful to turn into a card. It needed to be displayed on a wall!

I have created a process video that is included in the post on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Website.

Masculine Mixed Media Layout



Hi everyone today is my day over on the Die-Namite's blog.   I have this awesome mixed media layout that I created with Canvas Corp Brands  & Die-namite Dies.   



There is a process video there showing step by step how this layout was created.
 I hope you have time to stop by and take a look. 

While you are there, there is a contest going on, here are the details. 





One of the most essential aspects of die cutting with Die~Namites Dies is the paper you use. Canvas Corp Brands, which includes Canvas Corp, Tattered Angels and 7Gypsies, has plenty of papers to choose from.



A HUGE THANK YOU to Canvas Corp Brands for their generosity to the Die~Namites Design Team. Our kits consisted of Canvas Corp Printed Cardstock, Tattered Angels Mistable Papers, a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glaze, along with other goodies.



ONE RANDOMLY CHOSEN winner will receive their very own Canvas Corp Brands Kit along with a $25 Gift Certificate to Die~Namites Dies. Make sure to stop by everyday and leave a comment!



Thanks for stopping in today,

Tonya
