Tutorial Tuesday for JustRite Papercraft - Christmas Card Ideas using Background Stamps and Gelatos

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a Tutorial Tuesday project and video to share with you.  Now I know you are probably thinking--wait a minute it's Wednesday not Tuesday LOL.  Yes, we are sorry and apologize for the delay.  The weather in the Midwest has been kind of crazy the past couple of days and our electricity has been out a couple of times.   

For the tutorial I will show you how to use Gelatos with your Christmas Background stamps.  

For the first card I used the CL-02049 Christmas Postcard Background Cling Stamp.  I show how to layer and blend the Gelatos using a Q-tip and baby wipes.  

I used the CL-02063 Ornament Background Cling Stamp for the second card.  This is a quick and easy card and I share how to create a watercolor wash using the Gelatos.

To find out all of the details with a written step-by-step tutorial and lots of pictures and a video tutorial please hop on over to the JustRite Inspiration Blog!

  1. Love your card, Heidi and the tutorial is terrific. I usually try making about two dozen Christmas cards and try starting them around Thanksgiving.

  2. I make 50 or so cards. I have already started. i'm a little slow. sometimes i'll do a few stamp a stacks and some times something different. thanks for the tute.

  3. I try to start making cards around July. (I do other projects too) End up with about 50 by the time I mail them. I love the idea of using the post card stamp!

  4. Lovely cards!!! Love the snow flake one with the faded blues.
    I usually make around 10 cards and I wait till December to make, well not really wait, I just realize it's the holidays!!!!

  5. WOW...Christmas already! Your cards are lovely HeidiI make around 10 handmade cards and 100 Christmas newsletters so don't have to think about them until Halloween...fortunately I only make a few Halloween cards...LOL!

  6. Beautiful and thanks for the tutorial. Good idea to start them now.


  7. i'm so crazy-impressed about the dimension you've created in the leaves. it actually looks like you've cut and adhered additional leaves for the 3-d effect. I make about 35-40 Christmas cards each year.

  8. Love the card and the great Techniques on how to use the Gelatos. thanks fro sharing

  9. Love this image and I saw the excellent tutorial too! I have the first stamp and you really did it justice. I also really like where you put the name of the color on the gelato cap. Duh me here!! ;-)


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!! I really appreciate it!!!
