A love story with Gel-à-tins

12 Jan

I am soooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it!

I have gotten lots of new gel-à-tins stamps to play with.

Today I am using the stamp called Love Knots.

Here is a peak at the set.

My hubby and I will celebrate our 23rd anniversary this year and when I saw this LOVE KNOTS stamp, I knew I wanted to make an anniversary card for him.

I started by stamping and embossing the image in white on vellum.

I wanted to make it look like a tree with our initials carved in it…but this is the 2nd best thing I could come up with.

Oh how I LOVE RED!!  I think this all works so perfectly together!

I just adored working with this cute stamp and can’t wait to show you more things with the new sets I have to play with!  Be sure to come back and see what set I use next time!

We’d love to hear from you.  Leave a link in your comment if you’d like!

 I’d love to hear your ideas!

Have a “Gel” a riffic day!!

Gel-à-tins fun stuff!

29 Dec

I am soooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it!

I have new  gel-à-tins to play with.

Today I am using the set called Pet Shop.

Here is a peak at the set.

Here are the basic steps I took to create my card.

First I stamped the pig from the set 3 times in a pink ink.

I knew that I wanted them raised, shiny and embossed, but I do not own a pink embossing powder.  So what I did, after I stamped them in pink I quickly stamped the pigs again with clear embossing ink and then I embosses them with clear embossing powder to get this look, below.

I then use the computer to create the phrase I wanted and then applied a path to the words to create a sense of movement.

Here is the finished product.

I was hoping to make it looks like the pigs were doing a flip, did it work?

Here is a side view to see the layers I created, I love the dimension when there are lots of layers in a card.

I just adored working with this set and can’t wait to show you more things with the new sets I have to play with!  Be sure to come back and see what set I use next time!
