Stamping with Design Memory Craft (Faber-Castell)

Hello there!  I have a photo tutorial for you today using stamps and Stamper's Big Brush Pens!

I have been having fun experimenting with my new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products, especially, their Stamper's Big Brush Pens!  When they are wet, they react to water and when dry, are permanent.  When you stamp with them, act quickly to get 2 or 3 impressions with one application of color to the stamp, by spritzing lightly with water in between each impression.

To create this layout, I used only THREE Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.  Staying the Blue-Green family helps this project come together, and the ability to Mix and Match complimentary color families is so easy!

Jewel Keys - Made Into Wine Markers

This project is short and sweet!  If you’re in a pinch and looking for a cool way to decorate wine glasses for an upcoming party or for a hostess gift, think about using Julianna’s Spellbinders Jewel Keys die templates to cut this modeling film (a flexible plastic when heated, but keeps its shape when cool).  You can shape the keys any which way you like!

I used Julianna's Jewel Keys by Spellbinders™.

See the full post over on Julianna's blog with the instructions.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

My First Post for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft is up on their blog.

I used Dark Naples Stamper’s Big Brush Pen to stamp an acorn from the stamp company Paper Smooches, followed by using an Art Grip© Aquarelle watercolor pencil (# 117), then some Teal Metallic Gelatos®, and finally, reinforcing my lines with a Pitt® Pastel Pencil (#176). 

It's all below in the video!
