I am still creating cards from the backgrounds I made this last weekend from my Gel Press How-To Class. I wanted to create a WOW card for a co-worker to give her husband on Valentine’s Day. We both love Chemistry and her work is directly involved with chemical data analysis; so, I thought the Perfect Atoms (SS-0457) stamp set would be ideal for her card. I drew inspiration for her card using this week’s Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #PCC277. Here is the sketch challenge:
This card turned out to be one of my favorites. I had a Gel Press pink background with white hearts left over and decided to use it. I stamped the beaker with Black Licorice ink and colored it with FSJ Color Burst Pencils; then, applied Journey Glaze with a sprinkle of Sparkle Dust and let it dry while I completed the other parts of the card. The base is FSJ Whip Cream cardstock, the mat is the background stamp created with Sweet Berry Splash with the white areas created using die cut hearts from the Heart Felt die set (DI-0033). There is a small vellum rectangle (very hard to see in the picture) with a rectangular crimped strip of FSJ Bubble Gum cardstock layered on top of it. The sentiment is stamped in Black Licorice onto a strip of FSJ Watermelon Fusion and the ends snipped to create a banner. I stamped the I LV U onto another scrap piece of paper that had been created on the Gel Press and cut them into squares. The I LV U and the beaker are given dimension using Journey Medium and Small Foam Squares.
There are so many possibilities of bringing paper to life using the Gel Press. I hope you like this creation.
