Breast Cancer Awareness Rose

PinkOctRose-LisaAdametz

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you this Tuesday and I have a special card for you in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I know far too many women who have been affected by this horrible disease. So with my card today I wanted to show my support for all of my friends who have battled breast cancer -- no matter what stage they're in - early stages, remission, even cancer free. 

Here's how I made the card:

Hello Blogosphere! Welcome to Day 4 of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  It's Tiffany here and I thought I'd show you a timeless Faux Leather Technique with Gelatos and how I used that super cute Boots, Class and Sass Itty Bitty stamp set from Unity!

TiffUnityMain

You'll need the following supplies for this tutorial:

TiffUnityStep1

1. For a Faux Leather look, color an A2 card base with various earth-toned gelatos (cinnamon, iced chai, butterscotch).

TiffUnityStep2

2. Blend with a wet paintbrush. 

TiffUnityStep3

3. Spray with water and ball it up to create wrinkles. The water makes the paper more pliable!

TiffUnityStep4

4. Flatten the balled up paper, allow to dry, and then apply some chocolate Gelatos with a foam wedge onto the wrinkles! EASY peasy!

TiffUnityCloseup

Stitching adds that extra fabric charm to your Faux Leather panel!  I had so much fun designing with Unity Stamp Co. & hope you enjoyed this short Faux Leather Tutorial!

Thanks for hopping by,

Blog Hop with Unity Stamps! Day 3 with Rita Barakat

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n

 Welcome to Day three of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  Rita Barakat  here and I thought I'd show you a fun way to use the same stamp three different ways!  Each day we’ll post a new project on our blogs so come back and leave a comment to be entered in our $50 product giveaway! For extra entries, leave a comment on our Facebook page HERE.

RitaBarakat.com2 I received this sweet girl stamp called "Every breath", I love that stand alone she can easily become a work of art by using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and a little water.

RitaBarakat.com3 Here she is again, now with the added sentiment and sparkly stars thanks some Glass Bead Glitter Gel and  a star stencil (TCW). I used a little foam tape to pop up the sentiment but worked it right into the design. I also layered her dress - stamping it twice, cutting it out and using foam tape. I used  Gelatos®Colors and a very small paint brush for this piece.

RitaBarakat.com4 Bonus picture, so you can really see the Glass Bead Glitter Gel.  

RitaBarakat.com1 And for the minimalist, a simple mat frame will do. I colored this one with Gelatos®Colors and PITT® Artist Pens and added a digital sentiment. I hope that gives you some ideas for using these products!

Blessings!
Rita

Coloring Cork with Gelatos AND Freebie Friday!

TiffCork1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a photo tutorial for ya! Lately, I've been all about adhesive cork from DCWV & decided to try my hand at creating a card with it!

Materials:

  • Gelatos® (bubblegum, mango, metallic mint, gold champagne, black licorice)
  • Glaze
  • Die-cuts/dies/stencils (Sizzix Chevron Alterations Die by Tim Holtz, Lawn Fawn Thanks Scripty Die, Studio Calico Sunbrust Mask)
  • Paint Brush/Foam Brush
  • Collapsible Water Cup
  • Stamper's Artist Pen in White
  • DCWV Adhesive Cork Sheets
  • 12" x 12" Cork Tile
  • White Cardstock
  • Washi Tape

TiffCork4

1. Die-cut cork.

TiffCork5

2. Color cork pieces with Gelatos of choice.

TiffCork7

3. Blend with Glaze. This will also help seal the color into the cork without adding water while adding a nice shine to the finished piece!

TiffCork6

4. Color a large piece of cork with Gelatos using an ombre/gradient effect. Blend with damp foam brush! There's no need to add Glaze to this as the water will set the Gelatos color into the cork.

TiffCork8

5. You can apply the same ideas to a large piece of cork tile! Use the Stamper's Artist Pen in White to trace a design, then color with Gelatos of choice!

TiffCork9

6. Just like with the smaller die-cut pieces, blend the Gelatos color with Glaze to seal the color in! 

TiffCork3

Once dry, you can hang it on your office wall using some double-sided tape & you're ready to hang small reminders & mementos!

TiffCork2

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
