Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you sharing a card that I think is really awesome! (Yes, I'm biased, of course.) I am over the moon with how it turned out. So fun creating the pieces and putting it all together. Let me show you how!
Hi everyone! It's Laurel Beard here today with my first post as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Designer! ACK! I am over the moon excited about guesting here! There are no words to explain my joy! If you know me at all, you know I love Gelatos® and coffee! So, I thought for my first project as a Guest Design Team member, I would create a funny coffee card full of texture using various products from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® line. All the products are "Mix & Match", which means they are designed to work together!!!!! Actually, their tagline is "mix mediums with matching color palettes to creative with confidence." And it's true. Today's cards features: Gelatos®, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Whipped Spackle. All the exact supplies I used are listed at the end of this post.
Hello Everyone! It's Limor Webber here today!
We’re hopping with May Arts this week! We’re so excited to be partnering again with them and crafting with their fabulous ribbons.
Are you ready for an inspiration filled week with giveaways? Here’s how you can enter: Stop by our blog and the May Arts blog each day this week and leave a comment. Two winners will win $50 of product from us, and 3 spools of ribbons from May Arts.
I wanted to show you a super quick tutorial on a different way you can use your ribbons. Join me in 3 super quick steps to create this background.
First step is take your ribbon and adhere it to the cardstock using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium
Take your favorite Gelatos® and apply them on to the ribbon as shown. With a paint brush, water and your finger go ahead and start blending those colors together. You'll start to see how easy those creamy and silky colors just mix and blend.
The last step to my background was adding a little bit of the white Gelatos® to tone down the brightness and allow all three colors to blend perfectly.
Here is an example of how easy it is to complete this card in seconds using any stencil and an inspirational sticker or phrase!
I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!
Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a NEW Video Tutorial hot-off-the-press! This time, I'll be revisiting some important Art GRIP®Color Pencil techniques for Valentine's Day! My video is 3-part: easy (fire hydrant), intermediate (dog), and difficult coloring (bicycle). I'll show you my 3 steps for coloring: base color & shape, contrast & depth, blending & highlighting!
Art GRIP®Color Pencils are acid-free, lightfast, and permanent! The leads also NEVER break because the entire color shaft is glued into its wooden case. You also don't need any special blending stump or Gamsols mineral oils (which are toxic) for blending...this is a HUGE plus for me!
My favorite valentine I ever received was a handmade card from my husband! It had zero sense of balance or art, but was packed full of heart :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope the video helps you in your Art GRIP® Coloring endeavors! What's the most memorable Valentine you've ever received?

Hi everyone! It's Lisa back with you and using the lovely bird stencil again (from the new stencil pack #201) for my card today to show a little twist.
If you all saw Jill Foster's video HERE you'll see where I got my inspiration. Aren't her cards amazing?
I don't want to keep you waiting, so let's get started on my card!
Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share. Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!
Hi everyone! Lisa here with you today. And I'm happy to be back after being gone at CHA. It's always so fun to be there showing all the exciting new products for everyone, but it sure is awesome to be home.
So, now that I'm home I thought it would be fun to share a few of the new products with YOU! Just a little card, but it will give you an idea of what you have to look forward to. :)
