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

Share Button

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.

FSJ Gel Press – Acrylic Paint & Stencils with Glenda Calkins

Thursday, October 12, 2017

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.

Sneak Peek to Tomorrow’s Technique Class!

Share Button

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

This is a sneak peek for tomorrow’s technique. I used the Color Splash Background technique.

I die cut the Presents out of the Color Splash Background Technique using the “For You” die found in the Holiday mini. I’m using the presents as Birthday Presents not Christmas Presents. It’s a die so make it for whatever occasion you need some presents for. They could be Wedding Presents; Anniversary Presents; Engagement Presents; etc. I have you thinking now don’t I? No one said they could only be Christmas Presents. 🙂

I love the Tie Dyed look I got from this background.

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Sentimental Prints stamp set. I embossed it using White Embossing powder on the Dark Roast card stock.

This cute card is for my granddaughter Sophia who turns One on Saturday.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the video on this fun technique!
