Today I have a video tutorial for you, showing you a technique with your Gel Press using ink pads and rubber stamps.
Here is the final print I made in this video and then I used this piece to create two cards.
Here is the video tutorial on how to make this print.
I couldn't resist making some cards with this fun paper right away. For these cards I used the exact paper I made in the video.
To start off I sprayed the background paper with Gold Shimmer Splash, giving it an all over shimmer of gold. Which does show up very nicely when you hold the card in your hand. Second, I added a bit of splatter using the Cranberry Bliss Silk. I layered up my background with a piece of Cranberry Bliss card stock and a card base of Pumpkin Bread. I double stamped my sentiment in Pumpkin Bread ink and then over that I stamped the sentiment again with Dark Roast ink. I wanted it to have the layered look that the background has. I stamped the leaves on Whip Cream card stock and cut them out by hand. There is a coordinating die set for this stamp set, but I wanted very little white border on these leaves. Once the leaves were cut out and mounted to the card with foam squares, I covered each leaf with Journey Glaze.
The second card I made with this print is a little more simple.
I started by die cutting out the biggest leaf with the coordinating die set, Hello Fall, from the center of the background. Then I lightly stamped a piece of Cranberry Bliss card stock with the Canvas Prints background stamp and Dark Roast ink. The sentiment is also stamped with Dark Roast ink. I adhered this piece to a panel of Tangerine Fusion card stock and then added the background layer over that with foam squares. I tied on a piece of Special Day organza ribbon. The addition of the little acorn hanging from gold thread is my favorite little touch to this card.
