Stencil with Gelatos™
NEW!! The Stamper's Big WHITE Pen!

Ready for fall!


Hi folks! It's Jill here and let me tell you, I don't know about everyone else, but this hot summer has me dreaming of crisp fall weather and the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.  This card is a reflection of my recent fall weather dreams:

Art GRIP® Color Pencils (109, 115, 126, 167) were used to color the pumpkins.  And the blue background was created with one of my favorite Gelato™ techniques--emboss resist.  Begin by stamping your image with VersaMark ink onto white paper, sprinkle with white embossing powder, and heat to set. Color directly onto the paper and over the embossing with Cotton Candy Gelato™.  Work in small sections, blending with your finger as you go.

Randomly color small areas directly onto this background with Blueberry and Coconut Gelatos™  for added shading and depth.  Blend with fingertip as you go.
Gently rub/buff background with a dry paper towel.  This will help remove the Gelatos™  from the embossed areas.
I hope you are inspired to pull out your favorite Faber-Castell Design Memory craft colors and be inspired by the beauty of Autumn.  Happy Stamping!

Love this technique Jill with the embossing and haven't done it in a while. It really blends just beautifully over the embossing and love the layers of color. Gorgeous design :)

GORGEOUS! Clearly, I need more Gelatos!

Diana Queen

Help. I just received my Gelatos and can not seem to get them to smear/blend with my fingers. What am I doing wrong?

Jill Foster

Hi Diann S. Thanks for your comment. I find that working on smooth cardstock helps. Also be sure that you work only in small sections because once the Gelato dries they won't blend (which is actually a great thing because once dry they won't need a fixative). Also, apply the Gelato quite liberally when you color it on the paper. The more you put down, the easier it is to blend. Hope this helps! Have fun. :)
