It Started Out with a Kiss
Hi everyone! This is Jules of the Sassy Crew and I'm super excited to share my VERY FIRST time playing with these Gel Press products. And it all started with a kiss! This week Sassy & Crafty Stamps is collaborating with Gel Press to share some fun new ways of getting inky! And here's my take.
Although I recently purchased some acrylic paints to use with the Gel Press, I couldn't remember where I put them when I packed up my craft room for some renovations... so I used what I had in reach, my Distress Oxide inks. I started with some Twisted Citron and pressed the ink pad on the gel press and used my brayer to blend it out. I laid a piece of Bristol Smooth paper over it and gently pressed it to distribute the ink.
I loved how it looks a little grungy and provides texture. I used my heat gun and dried it and then geared up for the big kiss! Gel Press has these mini shapes and I used the kiss with Candied Apple Distress Oxide.
I didn't have a acrylic blog big enough, so I used one of my embossing plates to adhere the mini gel press shape. Once inked, I pressed it onto my colored paper.
I love how detailed it came out. So fun! Now lets stamp this background up with some beautiful words from the "You Are" Sentiment Stamp set. I used VersaFine Clair ink to stamp it in the center. Without wiping off the ink, I stamped it a few more times on the paper.
Next, I stamped the sassy girl from "Sassy Girls - OMG" stamp set. Inspired by the bright red kiss and lime green, I colored here up, but added some blue. So after she was colored, I added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink on spots of the background.
I fussy cut here out and adhered her using some foam tape on the lower left corner. Matted the image on navy card stock and added it to a white card base... and this card is ready for that strong and sassy friend!
I absolutely LOVE how easy and fun it is to use this gel press. Now stop by @sassyandcrafty.co on Instagram for an awesome giveaway featuring Sassy & Crafty stencils and Gel Press! And stay tuned for more amazing cards and crafts using the latest release!
