Faber Castell: Spending Time Together

I thought I would try something different...out of my box and use canvas with my Faber-Castell® Gelatos® Colors Gift Set. This is what I came up with by using a simple letterpress technique...


Faber-Castellのジェラトスを使ってキャンバスにLetterpress techniqueをしました。 思ったより簡単です。是非試して下さい。

I used Faber-Castell's Chocolate Gelatos' flat tip to cover a portion of Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ Regal Folder (raised side of the design). After I put it through my Grand Calibur® machine, this was the result...


I noticed that I still had some color on my folder so I misted lightly with water and did another pass through (second generation).


The letterpress on this one was a little darker (I'll be using this on another project)...


Next I wanted to stamp my sentiment onto the canvas so I used the same color Gelatos and misted lightly with water. I tried a couple of times to get the desired look. Then die cut over it for perfect placement.


Spellbinders introduced a new Grand Calibur accessory at the summer trade show which helps cut through their most intricate die templates. So I gave a try on the canvas - can we say CUTS LIKE BUTTER?! Highly recommend this Junior Metal Shim.


Here are all the pieces I used for the card front. Loving the Thankful Collection from Authentique Paper (last year's release)!


I adhered these pieces with ScraPerfect's The Best Glue Ever (wet adhesive) and then I put these two sets together with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L 3D Foam Squares - they work on fabric too!


The first layer was cut/embossed with Spellbinders Card Creator series, A2 Matting Basics A set and a few embellishments for a simple look. Then assembled the rest as shown in the finished card.


Here's another look...
