Textured Coffee Card with Video

IMG_5945

 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. 
Good luck!

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!

Video Tutorial: Valentines Cards!

ArtGRIPCardsMain

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 :)
