Metallic Gelatos!

Hi All! I am excited to be popping into the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft blog today! I love, love metallic Gelatos. They are very creamy, and the colors are fabulous. I have used them before on this card, this card, this card, and this card, just to name a few. You can get them all in one pack. Yay! The colors in this pack work so well together. You see the enamel hearts? I created them using embossing paste {Read More}

Ellen Hutson CLASSroom Guest Post and GIVEAWAY!!

Hi All! I’m excited to say that I was invited into the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom today!! I made a card using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos and Big Brush Pens from the blue and green Mixed Media Sets. I love how the markers glide and blend on top of the Gelatos. I also used the Big Brush white pen for highlights – it’s opaque and applies like a marker. I used my finger to blend pretty much everything, but {Read More}

Gelato Butterflies and a GIVEAWAY!

Gelato Butterflies

Hi All! Today is my last day as Guest Designer on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog. It has been such a fun experience, I’m sad that it’s over. 🙁 Since it’s my last post, I decided to use my favorite Design Memory Craft product: Gelatos. I used them on the butterfly and also on the matching background. They are metallic, so the card looks really shimmery in person. To see step by step photos and the supply list, visit {Read More}

Family Thankful Tree

Thankful Tree

Happy Saturday! Today I’m bringing you a special Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft project. It’s a canvas, but don’t worry… the supplies needed are limited and there’s no paint involved! I created the tree on a 16″x20″ canvas using Gelatos. The leaves are manually cut out with scissors and inked roughly with various distress inks. All of us (my daughters, my husband, and me) wrote something about what we are thankful for on each leaf. I haven’t decided if I’m going {Read More}

Day Two of Guest Design Weekend at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft!

Gelato Background

Welcome back to my Guest Design weekend! I’m here today with the second round of using Gelatos in a card background. The card for today starts the same as yesterday… heat embossing white on white and covering with gelatos. However, instead of spraying with water, I wipe with a baby wipe. You can tell that the color is much more subtle, which complements the vibrant flowers. Yesterday I created the reverse – a vibrant background and a subtle focal element. {Read More}

Day One of Guest Design Weekend at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft!

Gelato Background

Happy Weekend All! This weekend I am doing a two-part post for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. My focus is how to use Gelatos in a card background. The card for today uses the blue and green metallic Gelatos. Aren’t they beautiful? And they are really easy to work with because they go on so smooth and creamy. I also did a little something different for my card base, so be sure to check out the video for details. Head on {Read More}
