Today’s technique is the Gel Press with the Liquid Colors.

This past weekend my husband and I made a trip up north to Mackinac Island for his birthday. The colors here in Michigan are just about at its peak.

I took a bunch of pictures of all the different leaves and all the colors; so pretty.

I knew I was going to be playing with the Gel Press and the Liquid Colors so I knew I would be creating some gorgeous Leaf prints. I needed some color inspiration so my pictures came in handy.

I used a couple of different Fall stamp sets on today’s card. The sentiment is from the Hello Fall Bundle my featured stamp set for this month. The actual leaf images are from the Autumn Days stamp set. The Autumn Days stamp set is more of a line image stamp set so the gel prints make great leaves using this set.

The Liquid Colors I used on today’s sample were: Candy Apple, Orange Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, and Limeade Splash.

FSJ Snow Blooms 2nd Pull Gel Press & Winter Wonderland Stencil

Saturday, October 14, 2017

If you joined me this past Thursday then you know the technique was the Gel Press – Acrylic Paint and Stencils.

I had so much fun creating these Gel Press backgrounds that I wanted to show you the 2nd pull piece as well done on a card.

The 2nd pull gives you more white space and I think defines the different paint colors I used more than the 1st pull. If you missed the technique Gel Press – Acrylic Paint and Stencils you can view it HERE.

I used the same supplies for both these cards but what a different look by just using the 2 different pulls.

You may be asking what is she talking about 1st pull, 2nd pull?

When using the Gel Press you apply some sort of medium in this case it was a Stencil then Acrylic Paint Brayer and then top it off with a piece of card stock. When you pull the piece of card stock off that is called your first pull.

In this case I removed the stencil after the first pull and added another piece of card stock to the gel press; pressed all around and when I pulled the 2nd piece of card stock off my gel press that is my 2nd pull.

I used some more of my Gel Press pulled pieces from yesterday’s technique class on today’s card.

If you missed yesterday’s technique Gel Press – Acrylic Paint and Stencils you can view it HERE.

I had so much fun creating these Winter Wonderland pieces with the Acrylic Paint and the Gel Press. Now to start whipping out a bunch of cards.

That’s why I love the size of Fun Stampers Journey Gel Press 8 1/2″ X 11″! I can create a whole sheet and cut it up into pieces and create anywhere from 4 – 8 different cards maybe even more just using 1 sheet of 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of card stock.

The prints I pulled yesterday can create Christmas Cards, Winter Birthday Cards or even Winter Anniversary cards!

I even used yesterday’s prints to create my cover for my Techniques Binder.

So Fun! Here is the Shopping List:

FSJ Gel Press – Acrylic Paint & Stencils with Glenda Calkins

Funny thing about this Anniversary Card when I created it I was thinking of my daughter and son-in-law; but when I was writing up my post it is actually my brother and sister-in-laws anniversary today! This marks 38 years for them! I might just have to send them this card.

This card is using my technique for today the Acrylic Paint with Stencils and the Gel Press!

A couple of tips regarding the Gel Press:
– I’ve found that it might be a good idea to store them without the Acrylic Sheet over the top (this may cause air bubbles to transfer to your finished pieces) instead just store inside the plastic container it comes in.
– You may want to purchase a second Gel Press so you have 1 or Acrylic Paint and Modeling Paste and a second for ink pads and reinkers.
– It’s handy to have a cookie sheet with sides next to you with warm soapy water in it to transfer your Stencils into. (Trust me those stencils are WAY harder to clean if you let the paint dry on them a little bit.)
– It is best to use a little paint and add more if you feel the need than to add to much and wish you hadn’t.
– Baby Wipes work really well for cleaning your gel press.

The stencil I used on today’s projects is the Winter Wonderland 8 1/2″ X 11″ stencil.

The stamp set I used on today’s card is the Winter Doves Bundle and the sentiment is from the Bird Melody Bundle.

You can really use this print I created with the Gel Press for many different winter cards. So pretty and just love the texture of the paint.

I also created my Technique Album Cover using a few sheets of my Gel Press creations.

This is a 3″ Binder and I just slipped the 8 1/2″ X 11″ Gel Press pieces inside and tied the Beach Ball Satin Ribbon around where the two pieces met. I Tied a Mirror Silver Snowflake to the center of my tied Beach Ball ribbon and added a Rainbow Drop to the center of the snowflake.

I think I should have added a bit more paint but I like the distressed look and feel to the prints.
