CardMaker Blog Team and Faber-Castell!

What fun! The CardMaker Blog team was generously given some products from Faber-Castell, products I’ve never had the chance to work with, so this was a super treat!
I also want to take this time to express my condolences to the Faber-Castell family in the loss of Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, the eight-generation family entrepreneur.
Paper Flowers Kit-90 Pieces
Gelatos! What fun! And a flower kit, even more fun!
I took this from their website
Nothing on the market today compares with Design Memory Craft Gelatos®. Compact acid-free pigment sticks glide on creamy smooth for vibrant color and coverage. All Gelatos® blend easily with or without water. Try this unique medium on paper, canvas, or wood!
  • Gelatos are unlike any other product on the market today. This dynamic medium is a compact, acid-free pigment stick that glides on creamy smooth for vibrant color and coverage. Gelatos blend easily with or without water and work well on virtually any porous surface!
  • Creamy, Vibrant pigment
  • Water-Soluble
  • Permanent
  • Transform opaque Gelatos Colors into translucent tints or mists with water.
  • Great for adding color and sheen to any surface, including paper, canvas, chipboard, wood, fabric, ribbon, journal boards and many others!
So, here is the card I made with some of the contents of the kit!
I used 3 of the Gelato colors to paint my flower, and used the Texture Gems Ice Liner on the flower center.
So shimmery!
Be sure to stop by each one on the hop to see their awesome creations and a giveaway from Faber-Castell!
And here is a peek at Gelatos used for a background, to see the full card, stop back tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by!
