Distress Oxide Gesso Resist With Twist – 50 cards for 50 K YouTube Hop


Hi I’m Gerry from Gerry’s Craft Room
this video is part of another collaboration it’s 50 cards for 50 k to celebrate Justine
Hovey reaching 50.000 subscribers over 50 card examples will be shown throughout
the hop and there are prizes to win I will tell you more as I go along
lets get started as there is lots to see I start with adding a layer of gesso on my
ultra-smooth card I spread it with a brayer and this is a quick
way to add the gesso for this hop I am going to show my favorite
technique and I have so many so I actually combined
two I let the cards dry before I go on to the
next step and they dry really fast I have vicki boutin stencils and I embossed
the cards with the stencils I will link to a video where I tell you all
about it I am going to use distress oxide inks I looked for an October colour scheme and this popped up so I am going to colour the cards with an ink blending tool using the brightest three colours first and I just add them randomly in a turning
motion now this hop is all about techniques if you
would like to learn more techniques you may like to check out my stamping without
stamps class jam packed with techniques
and mark making tools you’ll discover in this class
that you may already have right at home and you can also check out Justine’s Technique
Resource Binder Class you can find both links in the description
box after I added all the colours I blend them
together a bit by going over them again where the colours touch each other and I want the colours to be a bit more bold I was a bit careful by adding them in the
beginning while the ink is still wet you may like to
use a piece of paper to hold the card so it doesn’t get your fingerprints on it Just so you know I added the main products I used in the description box for you you can find the full list of supplies on my blog and if you are new here and you like what you see don’t forget to subscribe and make sure to subscribe to all channels you like I am going to colour the next card too but I add the ink in a different pattern for the prizes you can win make sure to hop along all channels joining
this hop the more you visit and comment the better
chances you have on winning one of the 5 gift certificates
of $50 sponsored by Justine you can find the link to the next channel
in the description box and now the magic you need a wet wipe for
this gently rub over the card not pressing just
touching the top layer and the gesso resists the ink so the embossed
layer will be lighter and then you’ll see the pattern from the
stencil becomes more visible the more you rub and the more you press the
more ink will come off so just do it in bits to see the result and
if you need to go over it again and I dry a bit with a paper towel I finish the cards with the aged mahogany
around the edges and I have another way you can do this technique
I embossed the ultra smooth card first and now I am going to add the layer of gesso on the embossed and the debossed side and this way the gesso will touch the pattern
from the stencil and parts of the paper will have no gesso I roll the brayer really well in the gesso I want a thin layer on it so it only covers
parts and doesn’t get in the creases and then I let it dry again I am going to use the same colours
I am going to apply the ink in different patterns it’s just fun to play with the inks a bit
to get the different looks and while you are here have you seen the community
tab at the top available on smart phone and desktop I will share new and fun things there like behind the scenes sneak peeks polls and such So you can check that out if you like and then I come in with the wet wipe again you turn the wet wipe a few times so you have a clean piece again and then just wipe off ink until you like the look I coloured the edges with the aged mahogany again and just little bits of the black for contrast this makes the other colours pop I am going to make some splats with white gesso
on the light cards I dilute the gesso with some water and tap on the brush to make some pretty splats and the same with black gesso on the darker
cards and then I let that dry you can skip the splats if you want I like the touch of white and black to lift
the colours and it look more playful I cut some bigger cards as a card base and I burnish the fold with the precision
glide and then I add the coloured card on top with
tape here are the cards so far
I cut some letters out of chipboard with the tim holtz alphabet die
and I colour them with ink I use the same ink from the colour scheme
for all four cards I just show you this one for the sentiment I have some pieces of masking tape sticky side up on a piece of chipboard and I press the letters in the embossing ink and then dip them in the embossing powder
and this goes best with two letters at once they stick a bit to the tape but it’s not
fool proof and the closer they are the harder it is to
have them stay put I use the craft pick to press them down a
bit you can add them on the tape first and then
add the embossing powder but I find that such a waste of powder and this is the pretty gloss finish you get so I add the sentiment to the card and put my acrylic block on to let them dry I love this glue because it has such fine tip you can add little amounts of glue and you don’t need another tip or anything else and I finish the cards with some drops I have the drops I am using stored up side
down in the colorcase having the drops right where they need to
be at the tip of the bottle and these are the finished cards I hope it inspired you to get crafty yourself it’s a super fun technique also great for beginner crafters make sure to hop along the channels that are joining this hop I hope you liked the video don’t forget to like share and subscribe good luck and make sure to keep on crafting

  1. Hi lovely crafty friends, I totally forgot to add the video about embossing with stencils๐Ÿ˜ฑhere's the link: https://youtu.be/3MVJUMsRO7A

  2. Wonderful techniques! Love the finished cards. Although this is a bit out of my comfort zone, I'm inspired to make more "mixed media" cards once I've seen your video. Thank you!

  3. Gerry… I love your videos!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘ This is a great technique I've got to try!!! Never thought of dry embossing with stencils… ๐Ÿ’™it!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!
    Congrats 2 clever Justine!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŽ‰
    Looking forward to the next hop…

  4. Wow, these cards are fabulous!! Thanks for all the fun ideas. I love these colors together, something I never would have put together but looks great.

  5. Awesome cards and techniques: I just found a jar of gesso while I'm reorganizing… wait no I wasn't organized before so yeah I'm trying a lot of new. I love your tip on embossing die cut letters. Looking forward to trying the gesso resist technique (USA)

  6. I have never used the one embossing folder I got accidentally. These are great ideas! Fun cards! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love your videos and subscribed when I found Tonic. Great ideas and I always learn something new when I watch your videos.

  8. Resist techniques are probably my favorite, and my all-time favorite background I've made was using gesso for it. It's not as chunky and dries quickly. And in my art journal when I prep multiple pages in advance, it's easy to stencil a few textures and decide what else to do with them later. No extra prep product or time required. Love it Gerry, thank you for sharing a piece of yourself in your artworks.

  9. I always love your cards! You are so creative! I will have to try that gesso technique! Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Wow, so many cool techniques that I've never seen done before! I have gesso in my stash but never thought to use it to make a card. And it may be silly to point this out, but I love the way you do your sticky tape on the back with the little piece hanging off so you can center your cardstock and then pull the strips off, really smart! Beautiful cards, thanks so much for sharing!

  11. I like how you added the dark highlights on the edge of the cards. You created an antique look on the edges. Looks really cool! โค๏ธ

  12. Never tried Gesso before but itโ€™s now on my โ€œgotta have someโ€ list ๐Ÿ˜‚ Lovely cards. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Nice cards! Where did you get the rack to hold the drops? Looks like they fit right in there. Thanks for sharing and celebrating!

  14. I think I will dust off my gesso container that I bought long ago and now use it loved the blending on and wiping off to show the stenciling designs. Love how you store your drops as well. The cards you made are wonderful.

  15. Awesome cards! I love the backgrounds and how you made your own nice, big sentiments! These cards would be great for my sons!

  16. Wonderful techniques! I never thought about using my gesso this way. Plus, I can't wait to use my stencils for dry embossing. I'm in Texas.

  17. These cards are just awesome. You are so talented at picking the right accent color to add flicks of color or Nuvo drops, or what color to make the sentiment. Very nice!!

  18. I work at an arts and crafts store, so I watch a lot of crafty videos. This is a technique I have never seen. Thanks so much

  19. Cool technique, I've never used gesso before. There are so many different resist mediums. Love to see all the varieties. TFS ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–Œ๐ŸŽจ
