The Friday hop day is here! We love Friday’s around here for more than a completed workweek. We love our collaboration blog hops. It’s time for a cup of our favorite beverage and a great time to collect oodles of inspiration from both teams projects.

We are so happy to have you with us, we’ve enjoyed bringing a week’s worth of inspiration with Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft as our partner in crafty creativity! If you want to walk through this whole week of posts we can make it a little easier for you with links to each day. Here they are! Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Our showcase of products have been with Faber-Castell’s Art Grip Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils,  the PITT Pastel Pencils, and Gelatos with cameo appearances from the PITT Artist Pens for doodling and drawing!

The Color Fun Continues with Faber-Castell

faber castell gelatos

Our week of playing with Faber-Castell continues today, and we are LOVING all your comments! We’d be so super grateful if you could all run over to the Stampendous Facebook Page and like us there, too! Pretty please!

Several of you have said you’d like more information on how to use the gelatos. They can be used in so many different ways! Well, we found this fantastic video on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft website! Tiffany Johnson from Iheartart made this great video for one of our favorite customers Simon Says Stamp. We love how she gets right in there with her fingers. We need to do that more.

Bunches of you were excited about the castle like we were!! Ok, we’re not headed to Germany this week, but you CAN take a virtual tour of the castle and see some super awesome magnificence. Check that out HERE.

But for those of you who just want more INSPIRATION, we’ve got that for you today as well. In the office here I took a paper mache box and painted it with Faber-Castell Chalkboard paint. This paint went on really smoothly and dried very quickly. I put two coats on to cover it all and keep it smooth. The matte finish is just gorgeous and perfect for chalk/markers/pencils….

But, of course, I had to emboss on it. Our Q170 Zinnia embossed with White Embossing Powder and VersaMark ink looked amazing. I added the H303 Have I Told You the same way. Then I used the Neutral Art Grip Pencils to color in the flower. I did the petals in white and gray and the center in the goldish color. I highlighted everything with the Metallic PITT Pens set. Then the Stamper’s BIG White Pen provided the little dots, followed up by the gold metallic PITT Pen.  Super happy with the result, may be my Mother’s Day gift… hee hee.
