Be Merry Tag Duo


DeeDee Catron - Be Merry tag Duo

Hello everyone! :) DeeDee here today, super excited to be inspiring you using the amazing range of products from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft®. Today's project and tutorial come in the form of a Tag Duo and video. 

As much as I totally adore Halloween, I have found myself gravitating towards Christmas already. The glittery snow (not now that I live in Las Vegas, lol) the jingle bells and warm tidings. It speaks to my soul this year! So I'm jumping in head first with some tags that will be perfect either on my mantle, hanging from my tree, or even tied to presents. 

Here they are.... Be Merry Tags.

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:

Blog Hop with Unity! Day 4 with Tiffany

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

Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa with you today and I'm super excited to kick this week off with your first project here at the Design Memory Craft Blog. We've got a really awesome week planned for you, so I hope you'll be checking to see all of the DT's amazing work this week. :)

As you can see above I created something kind of interesting. It's a mixed media collage piece on a piece of wood using TONS of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products and the gorgeous Unity Stamp called Harmony Girl. She's stunning.

Here are a few of my steps to creating this piece:

1:  Cover the wood piece with selected pieces of paper, creating your layout. Then cover the wood with Gel Medium and the paper with Gel Medium. Allow to dry.

 

StormPic1

 

2:  Create a mixture of Gesso and Chalkboard Paint and apply to surface of panel in random areas creating a look that is appealing and less "white".

 

StormPic2

 

3: Apply Chalkboard Paint to edges of wood panel and also allow paint to drip on random areas of surface.

 

4: Stamp image onto tissue paper using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199, cut out and apply to panel with Gel Medium.

 

StormPic3

 

5:  Using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, Stamper's Big Brush Pens, and the Deluxe Waterbrush color in the image.

 

StormPic4

 

6: Shaving bits of the Paper Crafter Crayons™ off using a craft knife place around image and melt to panel front using a craft iron.

 

StormPic5

 

7: Stamp the sentiment using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199. Embellish with Washi Tape, sequins, and rub-ons. Use Glass Bead Glitter Gel on umbrella for added interest and texture. See close up below:

StormPic6

I love how easily this came together. (Don't let all the steps fool ya!) :)

Hey everyone, Mou here with the winners of September 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou:

1. Chark  said... (posted on my blog due to typepad issues)

Hi, Mou, fun challenge! I hope you don't mind, but it won't take my link over at the Design Memory Craft blog either. I submitted it twice on different days...hmmm...here's hoping! http://glitterinmykitchen.blogspot.com/2014/09/were-off-to-see-wizard.html#comment-form

7:11 PM

2. This was wonderful challenge, Mou. Usually I don't keep time limit for my creativity, sometimes I finish in an hour or sometimes half done project laying on my table for a week. Yes, but I do like to stick to my commitment for DT projects. :) I finished my project for this challenge in 25 mins. Kept it simple, even though I tempted to add 'some more'. It was inspiration from your video here. Link to my project:http://nagaonkarshilpa.blogspot.in/2014/09/30-minutes-project.html

Textural Accents with Rita Barakat

RitaBarakat

Hello artsy peeps! Rita Barakat here with a mixed media project for ya! Since I got the Glass Bead Glitter gel I knew I wanted to make an angel! So grab your supplies and lets get to it! RitaBarakat2a First of all, I always draw my picture then go from there. If you don't draw that's OK, use a stamp or cut an image out from a magazine. I ended up using many Gelatos®Colors and Gelatos® Double Scoops®. The background needs color, this canvas was already covered with Gesso, if your canvas isn't you should do that first. If you are using an image from a magazine use Gel Medium to attach it to the page. RitaBarakat3a Blend the colors with your fingers or a sponge. I left the wing white on purpose. RitaBarakat4a Use stencils or masks (I used The Crafters Workshop 461 -Rosetta) - I drew on top with Gelatos®Colors and spread the color around with a sponge. I did several layers with the same stencil. RitaBarakat5a
I added tissue paper with Gel Medium, don't worry if it gets on top of the tissue paper. RitaBarakat6a  For small details I go to my Mixed Media Aquarelles, several colors then blend with a wet paint brush. RitaBarakat7a For skin and hair, I use Gelatos®Colors. I also decided to lighten up the tissue paper print with a light painted layer of Gesso. RitaBarakat8a
I use PITT® Artist Pens for details. I had this very cool webbed fabric I added to the wing with Gel Medium, then of course the final touch - Glass Bead Glitter Gel. Not all over, but on the top, on the heart and a little on the bottom side. RitaBarakat9a Here are some close ups... RitaBarakat10a
I hope this inspires you to go create something!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Rita

ATC's 1 drawing, three ways!

RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100     Hey there Rita Barakat here! Today I am sharing some ATC's  I have been working on! RitaBarakatATC100 So I had this idea - 1 drawing three ways. I  thought what if I drew one girl and traced her two more times - could I make three totally different ATC's? Of course the answer is YES! First step, trace on each ATC.( I am just drawing on tracing paper so all of the details don't necessarily transfer but that's OK. RitaBarakatATCdrawings100 With the basics in time to place, it's time to make adjustments- different hair,lips, eyes... RitaBarakatATCdrawings2100 Time for color! This time I grabbed my Art GRIP® Aquarelles. RitaBarakatATCdrawings3100 Spread the color with a wet paint brush. RitaBarakatATCdrawings4100 Hair color is so fun!!! RitaBarakatATCdrawings5100 Gold Gelatos®Colors for the background! RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100 A black PITT® Artist Pen for details and there you have it! 1 drawing, 3 ways!
