I blame Shery and the fabulous DT at Stamplorations for forcing me to get out my gelli plate and play with my stencils!! They have been having a 3 day bloghop to celebrate the new Artplorations stencils and it has been packed with inspiration.
Shery made some fab gelli plate cards and I wanted to have a go too. I made quite a few backgrounds (I love that they are so quick) and these are two of the finished cards:
I used the gorgeous Leaf Print stencil from Stamplorations and their cool Hashtag Authentic bold sentiment stamps. I simply cut in to my gelli plate panel and popped it up to reveal the sentiment. I love the graphic feel of the stencil and the grungy look from the gelli print. The only downside of the gelli is that I never quite know how I achieved the different looks from each print :)
Here is a second print combined with a Label Love sentiment from Altenew and some PTI Scribble die cuts.
I will join up my first card at the Stamplorations March Challenge to use Stamps and Stencils and at Craft Stamper's Take It Make It Challenge which is Anything Goes.
I hope you like them :)
Now those are some cool cards. I'm really going to have to look into the gelli plates because these fabulous creations ya'll are making with them have me drooling!ReplyDelete
OH and I suppose I should also say THANK YOU for linking up to STAMPlorations.Delete
OH! And one last thing before I stop comment stalking you: ;) If you use a STAMPlorations product in your card (like these) you can always link it up to the Anything Goes ongoing gallery for even more chances to win prizes. http://stamplorations.blogspot.com/p/stamplorations-anything-goes-challenge.htmlDelete
I love them, Sarah! A Gelli plate is on my wish list as is this cool stencil! Fabulous what you did with them!ReplyDelete
Well, you rocked this. I have no idea what these gelli plates are so guess I will have to hop over to Shery's blog xxReplyDelete
You will have to come and visit, Sandie - I think you would love playing with acrylic paint and gelli printing :)Delete
Great cards ...... Thank you for joining in with the Craft Stamper TIMI Challenge ... good luck! Linda xxReplyDelete
Awesome cards, Sarah! I'm partial to the negative print (second card) precisely because you never know how the print is going to come out! That negative print you pulled for your second card is so grungy delicious! Monoprinting (the gelli plate makes this so easy!) and stencils are a fab combo -- I've mainly used them on my canvas art for years, but they're also wonderful for making quick graphic cards! So glad you played with us at STAMPlorations.ReplyDelete
WOW! I love all the texture you achieved with your Gelli plate, Sarah! Two fabulous cards!ReplyDelete
I am so glad we "forced" you to play with your gelli plate - it was getting depressed in its little corner ;)ReplyDelete
Stunning cards you made!
Wow, these are so cool, Sarah ... amazing texture and such fabulous effects! Anita :)ReplyDelete
