Gelato Butterflies and a GIVEAWAY!

Gelato Butterflies

Hi All!

Today is my last day as Guest Designer on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog. It has been such a fun experience, I’m sad that it’s over. πŸ™

Since it’s my last post, I decided to use my favorite Design Memory Craft product: Gelatos. I used them on the butterfly and also on the matching background. They are metallic, so the card looks really shimmery in person. To see step by step photos and the supply list, visit my post over there. Also see the video below.

As a finale to my guest design series, Faber Castell Design Memory Craft has graciously put together this awesome set of products for me to give away!

  • Red Mixed Media Sampler Pack (used to make THIS CARD)
  • Yellow Mixed Media Sampler Pack
  • Pink Stampers Big Brush Pen
  • Mix & Match Gelatos in Green (4 Gelatos, a brush, and a stamp)

Leave a comment here on this blog post by Wednesday, December 26th, 11:59pmCST to enter a chance to win. To be eligible you must LIKE the Design Memory Craft Facebook page. Good luck!

I will be taking Wednesday off from the blog to enjoy the Christmas holiday with my family, so I will be back the following week with some new creativity for you. I wish all of you a blessed holiday. πŸ™‚

Darlene

UPDATE: I’ve had a lot of people ask me about the embossing folder used here. It is part of the Argyles and Lines and Circles Set. The stamp is Hero Arts Traditional Butterfly, one of my favorites.

    I enjoy watching your videos so much. Sometimes I’m so inspired by the creative, beautiful cards you make that I drag out my supplies and try making the same or similar project. Housecleaning can wait ’til another day. Now I’m going to have to find and buy the gelatos. Thanks for the lovely ideas that you share with the world. You make it a better place.
    Happy Holidays!

    Another gorgeous card Darlene. I am so loving seeing you use these gelatos and have been trying to get hold of some for several weeks now but as soon as my local stockist gets them in they sell out so quickly. They are on my wishlist for Christmas so am hoping that someone else has the ability to locate them. The colours are so vivid and pearlescent looking on screen and the ease of use looks appealing.

    This is such a beautiful card, Darlene and I also love the Gelatos. I remember the first time you tried them to make a card with red flowers, I was really curious to see what kind of product this was so, I went ahead and got some. The result was fantastic and now I will get me some of this metalic ones. I absolutely love your videos, they are always a joy to watch and an amazing teaching tool. Thank you so much for all you do throughout the year, your patience and dedication, your kindness and selflessness sharing your wonderful talent with all of us.
    A very Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family and a Happy and Healthy 2013.
