October/November projects

I used my Gelli Plate, stamped, and airbrushed with the eBrush.

More airbrushing, stamping and some rub-ons.

These I colored using pencil w-gamsol and added glitter with the Wink of Stella pens. Ribbon was stamped and the bow was made with the Bow-It-All.

I gave these out for Halloween to co-workers. File is from cre8ive cutz

More cards - Gelli, airbrush, and paste FUN!

My guitar card started with pattern paper, then I used paste and a harlequin stencil. Once the paste was dried I airbrushed with color...on the other side I just airbrushed with another stencil. The two red cards were gelli plate designs using my Fiskars texture plate. I airbrushed the one on the right using a number stencil. Oh and the stamping is dark because of my new MISTI tool! I can keep stamping and my stamp always lines up! I also really like Tim Holtz rub-ons. Until next time...

Gelli Plate - eBrush creation

This was my first successful try with the Gelli Plate. After a few tries and research on the Internet, I'm ready to go Gelli crazy!

On the card front on the right I painted a clean Gelli, put my impression on using Ranger Texture Treads, then used my eBrush and Crafter Workshop stencil, I airbrushed the dots and stamped. I did the same for the one on the left except the Gelli wasn't cleaned and picked up the left over paint.

My other toy from HSN - It's fun, fun, fun!!

I am enjoying my Craftwell eBrush. It came with a few adapters with more adapters coming soon...meanwhile I figured a way to use my SU, Distress, and CTMH markers. I cut one of those pencil sponge type grips so that I could wrap it around the pen and use the Prismacolor adapter. While I really like the Sharpie look, for a smoother look I would use the alcohol ink markers.

Here's what I've done so far..

Sharpie metallics work wonderful for airbrushing.

On this one I airbrushed burlap ribbon.  My next item to airbrush is going to be glass

Here's a few more

My new toy from HSN

I was excited about the Evolution by WeRMemory Keepers. I really like how it embosses, but it's been hit and miss with die cutting. These are some samples using Georgia Pacific paper. I could never get the WRMK 3x4 die to cut using the evolution mat. So I tried using the cuttlebug plate instead of the Evolution Mat B and it cut successfully. It was mentioned that WRMK dies emboss when it cuts. Depending on your setting you will see a hint of embossing. I didn't have that problem with my sprocket die, but on the key die there was a little embossing in the middle.
 This machine is awesome for embossing. Below is CTMH paper (thin). On the left side I used a setting of 6 which was too high and on the right I used 4. I tried 5 and the paper ripped a little in some spots.
 This is thicker cardstock not sure of the weight (could be Georgia Pacific)
