Thank you to Jill Foster for sharing this technique using Gelatos and stamps! Gelatos are a great new medium for rubber stamping.
Last year I bought expensive bags only to have one zipper break,
I used my Stampers Big Brushes to cover the Gesso!!!
They went on smooth!
Hi everyone! It's Jill here with a card created using our NEW Art GRIP® Colored Pencils. I love how easy it is to blend with these pencils--no blending pencil or blending solution needed!

We're getting back into the swing of things after our time away in Chicago. CHA Summer was a great show! We launched 8 - yes 8 new products at the show that will be arriving soon at scrapbook stores. Here's what you can look forward to:
Art GRIP® color pencil palettes in Red, Yellow, Blue and Green. You'll find these color pencils are like no other - they lay down buttery smooth, blend with ease and stay vibrant for years to come. No wasted, broken leads with these pencils, they leads are glued inside the barrels from tip to end so you get more mileage out of these guys.
PITT® artist pens Journaling Sets in Red/Yellow and Blue/Green palettes are the perfect choice for journaling in brilliant color or creating free flowing doodles. The India ink won't bleed through your pages or fade over time.
And finally...you asked for them, so we've delivered. New neutral palettes of Ink & Aquarelles and PITT® artist pens let you get a bit "grungy" with your projects. Create vintage, shabby and distressed looks with this new palette.
Hi All, Colleen McGinty here on Technique Tuesday with an idea for turning your favorite papers into works or art!

Mix the Gelato colors on a pallet with water, spread the color evenly over the surface of the canvas front and sides (let dry). Draw a few grid lines with your ruler and Art GRIP colored pencils.
Stamp your designs in a way that is pleasing to your eye. I like to use un-mounted rubber stamps on canvas, this way I can wrap them around the canvas sides, and press into the canvas firmly.
Use the embossing powders for the butterflies and a few scrolls around the edges for depth and interest.
Work back into your piece by darkening some of the scroll work with the tip of the brush pen and the colored pencils.
Accent with the glitter embossing powder and mini rhinestones.
Good morning blogosphere! You may have seen some sneak peeks of products that have been recently added to the Design Memory Craft family. Well, I'm most excited about the Art Grip Colored Pencils! I love that I don't need a blending stump or odorless mineral to get beautiful blending. Nor do I need a million colors.
Here's a video tutorial on how to use the Art Grip Colored Pencils to color in a line image stamp. You'll also see a glimpse of the new warm grey brush tipped PITT Marker which is perfect for shadows! Please note that this video is longer than most of my others so that you can clearly see the steps. The coloring starts at around 2:25.
Thanks for watching!
