Simple Christmas Holiday Photo Tags

FB tag post 1

Hi everyone! Christine here.  Today's project was inspired by my three-year-old nephew. We'll be opening gifts together on Christmas morning and I want him to be able to find his own gift under the Christmas tree, despite not being able to read quite yet. Like you, I have a number of gifts to tag and wanted something personal, but simple. And I wanted to use supplies I already had. Voila, Christmas Photo Tags were born!

I wanted to Share how I created this super fun Mixed Media Card with you all so here we go!

STEP 1:

IMG_9828

I took two Gelatos® Double Scoop® and rubbed them on my craft mat as you see above and sprayed it with water to dissolve the Gelatos® .

STEP 2

IMG_9831

With a waterbrush start applying to the amazing pre-Gold Embossed cards from DCWV.  With a dry cloth wipe off any excess that may have been left on the Gold image.  You will be left with something like what you see in the photo below.

If you are a simple card maker you may be happy with leaving it as is but of course I had to take it a step further LoL!

Step 3

IMG_9836

Using Glass Bead Glitter Gel and a Resin Frame, I added the Glass Bead Glitter Gel using a brush lightly over the frame and dried it with a heat gun.

STEP 4

IMG_9841

Using the same hydrating technique I had done in step 1 I added the dissolved Gelatos®  on the frame randomly then heat set it with my heat gun.

STEP 5

IMG_9842

I mounted two pieces of DCWV cardstock and added the Happy Christmas chipboard to the middle of the frame.  I painted the chipboard and a bit of the frame with some gold acrylic paint and added glass beads inside the frame.  I gently poured Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze and let it dry overnight.

Note: I poured quite a large amount of Glaze which took almost 2 days to dry completely clear.  Drying time will depend on how much you pour.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and be sure to come join us all week for more!

Mindy
 
Hi there everyone. It's GDT Mindy here.

I'm so very excited about being a guest designer for Faber-Castell.

Today I have a little water coloring project I made using Gelatos®. First, I'd like to say how in love I am with these little amazing sticks of color! You can seriously do anything with them.

I started off by stamping my image and then taking Acqua Dolce, Lavendar and Earl Grey Gelatos®. and mixed the colors up a little for my background.

Here's how I made the card:

Blog Hop with Unity! Day 4 with Tiffany

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n (1)

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,
