Gelli Plates

April's Tool Challenge over at Club Scrap is to use your Gelli Plates.  I've already shared my story about the Gelli plates and have never regretted my decision to purchase them. So, this week I got down and painty with my gelli!

This time I used my Gelli Plate as a stamp.  I adhered it to an 8x8 Grid Ruler.  Used my brayer to apply acrylic paints to the surface and started stamping.  I stamped a solid circle and then stamped a second color with a stencil on top of the solid.

I just kept stamping away to fill all the white space, knowing I was going to trim the 12x12 pieces into card panels. Black cardstock added a whole different look that I just fell in love with! I love how the metallic paints really pop!

I cleaned off the brayer after each application by rolling it onto scrap paper.  I would stamp the extra paint off on the same scrap and ended up really, really liking the "scrap".

After everything was dry, each 12x12 was trimmed to 4x6 panels.  I could use these as backgrounds for cards or for photo mats.

Here is just a sampling of the cards made with the Oopsie Daisy Greetings to Go.

  3. Great idea to use the gelli plate as a stamp!

  4. What a wonderful idea! Love your cards.

  5. Great way to show off the circular gelli plate, Lisa. I haven't quite figured out if I can use that one. Thanks for documenting your process - so helpful for ideas!

Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Woven Strands blog hop! If you've arrived here from Lilian's Leaf Studio you are in the right place.   If you've happened upon the hop, please don't miss anything and start with Karen at Club Scrap. When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
