New Gelatos® – with Video

Hey there! I have been so excited about the new Gelatos® that were released at CHA in January that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them, but then there was the dockworker’s strike, Chinese New Year, and all kinds of other stuff! Sheesh! I finally have them and LOOOOOVE them and I know you all will, too.

I made a little (okay, long) video to show you the 15 piece sets and to show you how the new Gelatos® colors look both dry and wet. I thought that might be helpful to some of you. I’ll update this blog post later today with photos of the watercolor paper so you can see how they look. (It’s almost midnight and I really just want to get the video up at this point!)

I know it’s still long, but I hope you watch the whole thing. :) And let me know if there are any techniques you’d like to see done with them. Could be in a future video with YOUR name in lights!

Anyway, sit back and enjoy:

Which of the new Gelatos® sets are on YOUR wishlist? On are they all? ;)

Here are each of the sheets that I showed in the video. Click them to make them larger.

Blog Hop with Canvas Corp.

Hi! And Happy Monday. :) Today I have a brand new canvas that I made for a Blog Hop with Canvas Corp.  and the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Design Team. It’s a little bit darker than my usual stuff but I wanted to use the Chalkboard Paint as my background. I really like how this piece turned out, even though it’s NOT my norm.

Here’s a great peek of what to expect:

So much going on! I love using all the Textural Accents that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has to offer. They make it so easy to Mix & Match. And the Canvas Corp. Canvas was so awesome! So thrilled to have been able to play with their products. Blog hops are the best, aren’t they?

Be sure to stop by each day to see what each team has going on. I have a full tutorial for how I created my project today. (Including my little tale of oh-woe-is me. Lol!) This Blog Hop with Canvas Corp. and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® is sure to be a good one. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Happy Day

Oh Happy Day it  IS! It’s the weekend, right? And I have a brand spankin’ new tag over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today using a stamp set with that VERY sentiment. :)

It’s a mixed media tag with a LOT going on. No tutorial this time, sorry! But there’s watercoloring going on, I made a background using my new Gelatos®, used a stencil with Whipped Spackle…lots & lots of stuff!! The stamped flowers were created by watercoloring some paper, THEN stamped, and die-cut. I created the layered effect by using the different thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® has. So easy!

Here’s a side view… can you see all that dimension?!!?

LisaAdametz-HappyDayTag-2

 

Check out the full “Oh Happy Day” tag on the blog! I totally love this stamp set and know I’ll be using it lots more. So don’t be surprised to see it more often. :)

Hope that your day is a happy one!

Starter Set

Hey! I have a new card on the YES Blog today. It features the Starter Set from Your Everyday Stamps. I used a lot of paper from the Open Book Collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper  to make the card. And then I designed the card as if I were asking my sweetie out on a date. :)

LisaAdametz-YES-Starter-YounMe-1

Kinda cute, huh? I love that the Starter Set can be used not *just* for invitations but for cards, too. Just gotta think outside the box a little. And I’m a total outta the box thinker. :D

Come check out the close-up on the blog and all the other projects, too.

Happy Monday!

Sympathy

Sorry for the absence. While I’ve had some things posted here and there I’ve also had a lot of things going on in my personal life. A huge loss in my life. This has been a really difficult time. :( And, I haven’t been the only one to suffer a loss. It’s been a rough month. I thought it only fitting to make a Sympathy Card for my post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today.

LisaAdametz-Sorry-1

As usual I have a tutorial for this Sympathy Card. And I’m using some of the brand new Gelatos® too. They are really beautiful. So creamy, blendable, and the colors are incredibly saturated. You will all just LOVE them!

I wish so many people didn’t need Sympathy Cards right now, but the good news is, is that cards like the one above are pretty easy to make a few of (mix up the design a little) and have on hand.

Wishing you all love, laughter, and peace.

**The stamp set that I used is from Technique Tuesday and is called You’re So sweet, if you’re interested in purchasing.**

Watercolored Poppy

Happy Thursday! I have a watercolored poppy to share with you today.

Water coloring seems to be quite the craze these days, but if you’ve been thinking about getting a few watercolor pencils then I hope that the DT of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® can help. :) Three of us (Rita, Tiffany and myself) seem to be on the same wavelength using these awesome pencils for our posts. Can’t blame us. They’re really wonderful.

Which brings me to my card. It’s a watercolored poppy. Not traditional poppy colors, but hey…I took “artistic license”. :)

LisaAdametz-Smile-1

This awesome stamp is brought to you by Technique Tuesday and it’s called Budding Poppies. I’m a bit of a poppy “freak”. I can never have enough poppy stamps. I could happily color these all day long. :) It’s true!

So, on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog today I’m showing you how I made the above Watercolored Poppy card using just a few Art GRIP® Watercolor Pencils, the stamp, one of the new stencils, and a couple of other supplies. Pop over and check out the tutorial. I’d love to see you over there, too. ♥

First Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Wow…busy week. Hope you’re all doing really great. :) I’m super excited to be sharing my First Shaker card tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.

The 3D Foam Creative Sheets make it so, so, sooo super easy to create a custom die cut for your exact shape/frame/whatever. Kimberly Crawford has a video on YouTube using the 3D Foam Creative Sheets for you people that like to hear someone tell you what to do. She’s really quite fabulous.  So using her helpful video and my lame brain (haha!), I made the following card:

LisaAdametz-HappyAnniv-Shaker-1

The shaker portion AND the rosettes are all included in my First Shaker card tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.

I hope you’ll check it out. I have a feeling I’ll need to make more to get the real hang if it, though, as everyone else seems to make them look so easy. :)

It’s Planner Time!

Yeah…It’s Planner Time! (Sing that to “It’s Hammer Time!“)

In case you didn’t know I’m a new Design Team member for a super cool new stamp company run by my friend, Ashley Harris, called Your Everyday Stamps. My inaugural post (<–click here!) as a DT member of the YES Team goes live TODAY and it’s featuring the Plan It Daily stamp set which is a really awesome planner set (see? Planner Time? Get it?). And since planners are all the rage with the cool kids I thought I’d do my own spin on it.

Since I’m more of a mixed media person and totally unorganized (though I have multiple planners) I had to do something I knew would work for me.  I explain my thought process and the whole works on the YES Blog, so please join me there for my step-by-step pics.

But, here’s a quick peek at what I did:

LisaAdametz-YES-Planner-5

Doesn’t look like much from this pic, does it? :D But, I had a great time. And I had to keep it simple so that I *would* use it.

Stop by and check it out, and let me know what you think! I always love to read your comments and thoughts.

HAPPY MONDAY!! Woohoo!

Take a Risk

Happy Sunday! I have a project on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today that I’m calling my Take a Risk tag (based on the sentiment and how I created it). For this project I repurposed some packaging to create a tag and went from there. Using things that you normally wouldn’t to create something new is SO fun! It really pushes you creatively (or at least it does for me) when I use things in a different way.

Anyway! Here is the Take a Risk tag and take a peek at how I used the packaging:

LisaAdametz-TakeARisk-1Can you see the new Texture Luxe™ and Texture Gems™, too? I just can’t seem to get enough of that stuff! In addition to the rest of the line of Textural Accents these just seem to round everything out.

The full tutorial for my tag is over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog so please stop by and check it out so you can see how easy it is to make one for yourself. :) If you DO make one, please let me know. I’d love to see.

Thanks for visiting me today. And, as always, your comments make my day.

Flutter By Blog Hop

It’s a Flutter By Blog Hop! Okay, well…the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Team is Blog Hopping with Lawn Fawn all week and I made the cutest card! :) So it’s really just a Flutter By Blog Hop for me. :D But we have been blog hopping ALL WEEK LONG! (Have you checked it out yet?)

I made this super cute Birthday Card using Lawn Fawn’s Flutter By stamp set and Lawn Cuts. I love how perfectly the dies work with the stamps.

LisaAdametz-FlutterBy-Birthday-Blog

Using watercolor paper to die cut the flowers, leaves, and butterfly make them perfect for all sorts of pretty techniques, too. I really love this Flutter By set so much. So very versatile. And the Scripty Sayings set is sooo super sweet, too.

And those shimmery stars? Are the new E-Z Stars Refillable from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® They are AMAZING! Can be used with embossing powders, glitters, micas…etc.

Make sure that you stop by and see the alternate views on the blog and read how I made it because there are GIVEAWAYS and you won’t want to miss out.

Hope that you all have an amazing weekend!
