Spellbinders and Gelatos

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hard to believe the weekend is just about over already. I think the more you look forward to them the quicker they go by. Spring Break is in two weeks and there are only 10 weeks of school left this year. Time sure flies by!

This first card I am sharing I made at the Scrapbook Expo. It is another from the Spellbinders class. I was so excited about learning new techniques that I made two more after I got home using similar materials.

Here are my designs...
First, I used a couple different embossing folders to create the background since I did not have any similar Spellbinders dies. Then I used Gelatos and water to add the color. I was very quick with my painting just to see what type of effect the raised embossing would create.  Now that I know it works I will be more careful next time. Lastly, I added 3 Girl JAM ribbon (gold trim and purple striped), polka dotted vellum, and pink skittles/gold sequins. The sentiments were cut with my Cricut Expression.
Other Materials:
white, purple, and black cardstock

What is the most recent technique that you have learned? I know there are plenty more that will keep me busy. Can't wait for you to share!

Have a FABULOUS week!
