  • Working with Gelatos

    gelatos

    We created a few new cards using Gelatos and we thought we would share our tricks to using them.  For those that haven't used Gelatos before, they are compact acid-free pigment sticks that glide on creamy smooth for vibrant color and coverage.  All Gelatos blend easily with or without water and can be used on paper, canvas, or wood!

    On the examples above, we added water to both to create a smoother, blended look.  For the aqua flower card, the flowers were stamped in Versamark black ink because that doesn't smudge when you add water and then the Gelato was rubbed all over in the outer spaces.  We used the smooth Neenah paper since it has the least amount of texture.  The Gelato first goes on the paper, kind of chalk-like but then we used a wet baby wipe to blend the color on the card and give a more smooth appearance. We even dipped the baby wipe in a little bit of water to really get the Gelato to blend on the paper.

    For the pink flower card, we used water color paper and colored the flower but then instead of using a baby wipe, we sprayed a fine mist of water and the Gelato blended on the paper as the paper dried.

    Check out this link so see all of the Gelato products that we have available! They even come in a variety of set combinations that are bright in color and metallic.

    We love the look of a white die cut image on a white card. Here is a festive card that incorporates the white on white look with this new Happy Birthday die but then we added yellow glitter washi tape and the perfect printed party paper that just arrived last week by My Mind's Eye.

  • Hero Arts Flamingo Stamp Set

    We had our annual birthday event over the weekend.  We had a great time getting the store ready with all new displays, new products, and demonstrations.  The demonstrations may be over but all of the samples are on display and worth stopping by and taking a visit.  We had fun showing one of the popular Hero Arts Color Layering stamp sets with their ink that they have created to go with the stamps.  You can see below how the colors build when you stamp each layer when stamping the flamingo.

    You can also get a flamingo die cut that goes with the set!  Our birthday hat brads fit perfectly on the flamingo! We made a flock on flamingos on Saturday!  Here is another card that we created that was inspired by their summer catalog.
