With Graduation, Father’s Day, and so many other occasions that just seem to be springing up, this set is perfect for any type of card.
And using all of the fun dimensional adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® and the super cute dies (listed below) make it so easy to create something really special.
Here’s a sneak peek of my card:
Isn’t that Globe fabulous?! The globe, that sentiment, the colors…ALL of it just make me so happy! The stamp set is so appropriately named, too. “Look Out World”. Isn’t that kinda awesome? I want to make so many things with this set. I’m in HEAVEN! :)
Hi everyone! I have a Mother’s Day Card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. I know, I know…it’s not Mother’s Day anymore. But, it’s a pretty card and I thought I could (and would) share it even though it’s one day later. :)
It was a lot of fun trying (for me) to create a clean and graphic card, as it’s really not my thing. I love mixed media! So trying NOT to get inky was soooo hard! Lol! I wonder if the CAS people think that mixed media is hard? Hmmm… ;)
Trying to get everything lined up just so required way more patience than I have. But that’s where the MyStik® Repositionable Dots came in handy. I was able to use this great product to keep things lined up until I was ready to really stick things down. *whew*

I have a couple of fun things to share with you today. My tag uses the brand new Be-YOU-tiful die. This is such a fun and versatile die! I die cut it twice. Once with a deep, dark navy blue cardstock and once out of a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Creative Sheets. I burnished some gold foil on top of the die-cut adhesive sheet (once the liner was removed, of course) and then peeled the backing layer off of the back and slightly off-set it before pressing it down on top of the blue cardstock.
Close-up!! (The gold on the butterfly is created by using the Gold Texture Gems™ from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. )
Onto my second card. Isn’t it pretty? And so simple. First I created my watercolor panel. I love doing this. It is so amazingly relaxing. Picking the colors I wanted to use is always the hardest part. For this card I used the beautiful Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36-Piece Watercolor set. It is amaaaaaazing! *sigh*
Now, I MUST talk about this seriously gorgeous flower. The Mondo Magnolia is drop-dead, *thud* amazing! And there is a matching die...for ALL of the pieces!! ACK!! I stamped it onto cardstock weight vellum with Versamark and heat set it with a stunning fine, white embossing powder. Then I used the matching die to only cut the outline. And those gold flecks? Again, I used gold foil. Yep! I applied a strong adhesive (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets used here) in random areas and then just pressed the gold foil on top. Super simple and it totally completes this look. I flicked some of the remaining watercolor on top of the flower and added some more of the Gold Texture Gems™ to the center.
Your next stop on the hop is going to be the AMAZINGLY talented Sandy Allnock (I bow down to her creativeness). Tell her Lisa said “Hi” . :)
Hi! I have a new card on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today. It’s a Mixed Media card with Chalkboard Paint and the new Gelatos® and I had such a blast creating it. Sometimes things just flow, and this was definitely one of those times.
I love everything about this card. I always feel weird saying that about my own cards. But the colors, the textures, and the stamp from Technique Tuesday all just work so well together.
Using the Chalkboard Paint in this fashion works so well as it dries matte. And the Texture Gems™ dry shiny. So using the two together is such a wonderful contrast. And the new Gelatos® are really beautiful, vivid colors. There’s a full tutorial on the BLOG so please check it out to see how I created it.
I hope that you’ll all enjoy this Mixed Media card with Chalkboard Paint as much as I had creating it.
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.
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. :)
