Coloring Gel Medium & Texture Paste

Today is the final day of the Craftin Desert Divas October Release!!! This release has been so much fun and if you missed any of the DT’s amazing project, be sure and head over to the Facebook Group to scroll through all of the stunning creations!! But for my cards today, I have a video tutorial sharing exactly how I put them together and also sharing two different mediums that I colored and put through the brand new stencil! Both cards are similar, but the two mediums left the backgrounds with different looks!! Be sure and watch the entire tutorial below!!

To start I cut two pieces of white card stock with the largest rectangle in the Inside Scalloped Rectangle die set. For this part of the project I actually needed the inside pieces, which I overlaid with the stencil. Using my Distress Inks I first colored some Gel Medium and pushed it through the stencil on one of the pieces of card stock. For the second piece, I colored some Whipped Spackle with the same Distress Inks and put it through the stencil as well. The gel medium eventually tried slightly translucent and more flat, while the spackle stayed dimensional and creamy.

I did quite a lot of die cutting for this card, so here’s the run down. I cut two Box Dies from kraft, another inside scalloped rectangle die from kraft, two sending outlines also from kraft, and finally the sending die twice from red card stock.

Putting these cards together was super simple! I adhered the frame with dimensional adhesive and inserted the inner panel with the stenciling, adhering it flat onto the A2 side folding card bases. Next up was attaching the box dies in the bottom corner. I stuffed each box with some green “grass” or filler – be sure to watch the video above for a few tips on how to do this! Finally, I attached the sending sentiments and stamped the inside of each card with the Sending Sentiments Stamp Set!
