Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing this card using Gerda Steiner Designs Deck the Halls stamp along with some Neenah Classic Linen card stocks to do some watercoloring with Gelatos®.  I’ll be starting a New Gelatos® For Card Makers Series, sharing different ways you can incorporate Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line of products in our card making.  I’m starting this series because I’ve heard many people mention, Gelatos® as a Mixed media medium. Gelatos® are such versatile medium that can be used for both mixed media and card making.  It’s a fantastic medium and it’s very easy to work with.  Hopefully I can share some techniques with different products, to showcase the versatility of them.  I’m starting out with my very first Christmas card for 2015.  Yeah, I’m a little behind so I better get started, lol.

I’m using this super adorable stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs and I’ll share some tips and techniques on how we can watercolor using a various colors from the Gelatos® line.  I’m using these Neenah Classic linen card stocks to do some blending with or without water.  These classic linen card stocks are fantastic with watercolors.  They are not a watercolor card stocks but they work fabulous with watercoloring and I highly recommend trying them out.  I am definitely in Love.  They have these great textures to these card stocks and the texture really shows through, even with a coloring medium on top.  You’ll definitely see the texture through it as we start the application of colors.  i’m using a very traditional Christmas colors and I’ll share some tips on how you can get the Glowing Christmas light look, with watercoloring.  I’ll put all the links to the supplies I used below, if you want to try out any of these products.  Tupelo Designs LLC has various Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line of products so you can easily find them there as well as DesignMemoryCrafts.com.  I hope you guys enjoy this series and please leave me a comment, if you like to see a particular products in use.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please Subscribe, Like and Comment.  I’d love to hear your Feedbacks 🙂  Thanks again.

  1. Saw your CUTE kittie cards on Gerda’s blog. Darling! Great coloring and I like the “glow.” I don’t use my gelatos because I had trouble blending them and I always ended up with a “messy” look. Thanks for the video and upcoming videos showing how to use and blend them. I appreciate that! 🙂
