Mixed Media Kits at Barnes & Noble with Penny


Hello everyone.  Penny here today to share a card creation using Faber-Castell ® Design Memory Craft  Mixed Media Kit in Tropical that is exclusive to Barnes & Noble stores. The colors say summer, but when mixed together, you can achieve a Fall themed card in no time.

This kit is chocked full of so much goodness, including Gelatos® , Texture Luxe™, tools and stencils:


So let's get started:

Make a base card from White card stock trimmed to 4.25 x 11 inches folded in half. Color the long edges using Metallic Melon Gelatos® and smudge with your finger. Set aside.



Cut White card stock 4 x 5.50 inches. On a craft sheet, adhere stencil in desired position over card stock.  Mix a small amount of Texture Luxe™ with a few slivers of Margarita Mix Gelatos®. Using provided Spatula, apply over stencil until you have desired effect. Let dry.


In a water cup, mix a small amount of Metallic Melon Gelatos® and water. Dip provided stippling brush and flick across card front. Let dry. Stamp sentiment with VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink, wrap sheer ribbon, tie bow and adhere card front to base card.

Texture Grateful step2

Die cut Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves from White card stock. Give the leaves a fall look using Gelatos® in Margarita Mix, Metallic Melon and Metallic Grape. Adhere leaves just beneath bow.


Finish by adding Pearl Texture Gems ™  around the card front.


With Thanksgiving just around the corner (for those living in the USA), this would make a wonderful card to send to a loved one that is far away from your gathering this year.
