Materials for mixed media were everywhere at CHA Winter 2013. Faber-Castell, perhaps best known for its fine art materials, offers a line ideal for mixed-media artists under the label Design Memory Craft. Artists who enjoy the popular Gelato colors will want to check out the two new color sets: Tropical and 50’s Diner.

Since I am on the Stampendous blog team, I was excited to visit their booth at CHA. Their booth at CHA Winter 2013 was filled with lots of beautiful cards and other creative projects from their design team. Stampendous introduced several new stamp designs (clear, cling and wood mounted), new glitter colours and other fun stuff for CHA Winter 2013.
One of my favorites in the booth was the mirror displays on their wall – each mirror was decorated differently by their design team member and featured the use of their stamps, glitter, mica and color fragments.
Here’s a closer look at some of the mirrors’ details:
Stampendous also showcased their super fine glitters. I could not resist the urge to touch it – it’s almost like velvet!
My absolute favorites in the Stampendous booth were Fran’s Encrusted Jewels Kits. There are so many different ways you can use them! And I had no idea you can emboss from the back side! Here’s a quick video I took at the show:
Welcome to another edition of gallery highlights! I was so excited to see a lot of colorful cards in the galleries this week so I’ve included a fun selection for you today. And, of course, there’s also a couple of layouts that I couldn’t pass up. Let’s go take a look at this week’s finds and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – you can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.
I love & miss you by kellyras
I first saw Kelly’s card a couple of weeks ago and have been drooling over it ever since. First, I love the color scheme. Red, white and blue is such a classic color scheme but Kelly’s use of light blue hues in her card brings a bit of modern sophistication to the color scheme. It’s an absolutely beautiful combination and I can’t wait to see more of Kelly’s work.
My Mind’s Eye was one of the CHA Winter 2013 booths with a large icon on display – they decked out a bicycle in washi tape to celebrate the release of their new Decorative Tape Sets, sold in tubes of 8 for $12.99.
Lily Bee Design introduced three new collections at CHA Winter 2013. Sweet Shoppe, Pinwheel, and Destination are the new collections from Lily Bee Design that will be hitting stores soon.
