Post 2 of our holiday $5 gift series! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the next post!
Hi everyone, Mou here with today's tutorial.
I believe that adding your loving handmade touches to a simple gift makes it priceless.
Hi everyone, Mieko here today to share another card using the Stamper’s Big Brush pens and Art GRIP® Aquarelle Pencils. I have made a 3D Christmas snowman card using Mix & Match Stamper’s Big Brush assortment in Neutral.
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.*
Lisa 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.
Hello! Kasia Krzymińska here to show you one of my recent art journal pages. This one was made using Gelatos® Colors and PITT® Artist Pens.
Firstly I created my background using pieces of papers and Gesso. Then I started my doodling. I really like it, it is so relaxing:
As a public school Art teacher, I am always trying to include my passion for mixed media in my classroom. My students love to see what I do as an artist and I incorporate some of the techniques in my classroom too. Often, my kids bring me little pieces of art from home. I don't want to just say "thanks" and file them away. I have 4 clipboards that hang on one of my classroom studio walls and it just needed a finishing touch. To complete my art gallery wall, I bought some chipboard letters that are approximately 10"tall. I altered them to hang above the clipboards.
December is fast approaching! and before we know it, Christmas will be here! With that in mind, I went to town with altering this old iPad cover that I had stowed in my stash of alterables that I've been hoarding :) This cover was altered to hold wish cards for this Christmas and New Year. It can also be used to store advise cards or even to just store away the pretty things you will receive this festive season.
Here's my altered cover and a guide on how I made it look the way it does.
Rita Barakat Rita channels her boundless energy into her family (she has 5 kids!), directing a youth choir & drama team, and her eclectic paper crafting projects. She is on the design teams for Clear Scrap and Ta Da Creative Studios.
I LOVE how you did the background!
Thanks for sparking my creative juices for a "2013 in Review" journal page.
