Stamping and Paper Crafter Crayons™


FeatherPaperCrafterCrayons

Hi friends! It's Lisa here with you today with my first post on my second term with Design Memory Craft! Before you ask...yes, I'm still pinching myself. :) 

For today's project I wanted to work with my Paper Crafter Crayons™ again.  These are really so versatile and I wanted to show another (and SUPER easy) way to use them. 

Here's a look, first, at the card and then I'll show you how I made it (did I mention how easy it is?):

Cork Acorn Fall Decor

Acorn complete w

Hi friends!  I had the best time creating this and I'm going to tell you just how I did it but first I have to point out the orange/yellow highlights on the main part of the acorn.  I LOVE that!  It's as simple as pie!  Simply highlight parts of your project using Paper Crafter Crayons before painting.  Yep.  That's awesome.  It withstood paint AND Gesso and it still shines on.  YAY!

My Friend Card

MyFriend

Hello!

It's Stephanie here and I am so excited to be sharing my first project as a part of the new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Design Team!

I have to admit that I am a very clean and simple type crafter. I like clean lines, equal margins and a neat look. But I also love to play with product and get creative with inks and mediums that you wouldn't usually associate with my clean and simple style.

So my goal, while being a part of this guest design team, is to show you that the amazing products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® offers, can work with any crafting style. You just have to know what you like and make the product work for the look you're going for.

So today I have a card to share with you that features some canvas flowers that I made using stamps and canvas, along with Gelatos® (Raspberry, Green Tea, Lime Lime, Watermelon, Snow Cone, Acqua Dolce and Silver Metallic), a Stamper's Big Brush Pen (Black #199) and a PITT® Artist Pen (Black #199).

Once in a Blue and Purple Moon

 harvest love, card, ALL

Hello! It's Amy , to share a card I made, to celebrate the coming of fall (the best season of all in Kansas, I believe), with the shining silver (or blue) moons, crisp, colorful leaves, and cool evenings.

Since I enjoy fall so much, and I wanted to create a sweet, colorful and textural card to send to my mom who shares the love of this season as well. I decided to start with a black paper crafter's crayon, Halloween Patterned Paper, and a  texture fades embossing folder, to make an interesting and fun background.

Hi everyone!

It’s Stephanie here and I am super excited to be a part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog hop with May Arts.

For my card, I decided to go a little more simple and let the vibrant colours of the Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and the beautiful lace ribbon from May Arts take center stage on my card front.

The completed card turned out exactly as I pictured it would in my head and I love how each element on the card stands out and draws the eye in.
