Featured designer on MFP

I am the featured designer at Mark's Finest Papers blog this week.  I did a tutorial on how to make a gel card that has become my new favorite card.  Pirate ship is from Buired Treasure stamp set and the fish is from Oh Crab stamp set.
See more by clicking on my sidebar on the Featured designer button.
1. Squeeze some hair gel into your ziploc bag. Only add enough to cover the inside of the bag. Too much gel might cause the bag to "pop" later on. Sprinkle in some prisma glitter for sparkle

2. Press excess air out of the bag, close it and spread the gel evenly over the entire inside of the bag. Using the cheap gel leaves more bubbles which I like.

3. Decorate the front of the card with decorative papers and ribbon and place on front of card with removable double stick tape.

4. Cut out circle with Nestabilities circle die. You might have to run the die through a couple of times to go through all the layers.

5. Stamp pirate ship through circle with black ink onto the inside layer of card.

6. Remove decorative paper layer from front of card and tape gel filled ziploc baggie behind cut out circle.

7. Stamp saying Find your treasure with black ink on bottom of cut out circle layer then adhere to front of card with gel baggie showing through the circle.

8. Color the pirate ship with Prisma color pencils.

9. Create a circle border and glue to the front of card to finish.


  1. Your gel cards look great! I am glad you and your family are alright!
    Hugs and smiles
