Textures and Design Memory Craft


Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you today and I'm really happy to bring you a fun card showing you some easy ways to make a pretty card for your Thanksgiving - or ANY day.

I'm using a variety of textured products: cardstock, wood veneer, and cork to work on (and even a little vellum as a finishing touch). I know that my Stamper's Big Brush Pens loooove porous surfaces and Gelatos ® can be used almost anywhere! So, let me show you my finished card and then sit back and watch the little video I prepared for you. :) 

I hope you enjoyed the video. I did have a few technical issues, but hopefully the end product makes it all worth while. :) Wishing you all a VERY Happy Thanksgiving (or a great Thursday, if it's not Thanksgiving in your part of the world).

*All supplies are listed by name/number at the end of the video.*



LisaLisa Adametz I'm a veteran of the United States Air Force and a stay-at-home "mom" to two beautiful Ragdoll kitties.Creativity is in my blood and I've always been making something. Cross-stitch, silk ribbon embroidery...I love the creative process! I first looked into making cards as a way to keep in touch with family and friends after moving to CA in 2008 and wanting more than store-bought cards could offer. In my eyes cards are personal mini-pieces of art and a part of your soul that you are sending through the mail. I love dimension and color. LOTS of color.

Wow! Gorgeous card, Lisa! Love the glitter tape, your awesome leaves and the colorful texture!

Your card turned out fantastic! Thanks so much for making the video, too. That was definitely a bonus.

This turned out beautiful! The variety of colors, woodgrain and of course, sequins are all so perfect on this card. Great job, Lisa!

Yah! Beautiful Lisa!

We who don't make videos appreciate anyone who does. You sounded fine and the card is awesome. Thank you for sharing.

Ou I love those deep rich fall colours, Lisa! I would have never thought to use Gelatos with that wood grain paper. You made me so happy that I've bought both. I always learn so much from your innovations and your fearless exploration. Thank You!
