Memory Box Dies with Gelatos


I hope you and your family had a great Christmas!
 
1 wanted to share some Memory Box die cuts today.
Here's a few that I have.  They are so intricate.  They turn out so well!
 Here's a gift bag project I did.  Started by mixing some blue ink with some medium modeling paste.
Smeared over top of a brick wall stencil and allowed to dry overnight.
 Using Faber Castel gelatos, I colored in between the brick with a paintbrush.
 I dabbed some yellow and gold gelatos on most of the flower frame die cut.  Blended with my paintbrush.
 I printed a FREE digital print from Graphic Fairy.
 To adhere my pieces, I used Scrap Dots under the digital image after I fussy cut it.  I used Scotch quick dry glue on the other pieces.
 You can see the dimension of the scrap dots on this side shot.  I love how it raises it as high as you like. 
 I used the gelatos to make my letters. I rubbed the gelatos directly on the foam letters and then dabbed it lightly onto a damp paper towel.  The water helps activate the colors.  I stamped it directly onto the bag.
Here's my finished bag.  I tied some lace and ribbon onto the handle to finish it off.
I hope you like it.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a blessed Friday!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
