A little fun with the Gelli Plate



A couple weeks ago Ellie and I got out the Gelli Plate and made a couple dozen prints.  For anyone who wants to do some crafting with kids I highly recommend the Gelli Plate, it's so fun and easy, you really can't make mistakes, and it's totally addictive.

Anyway, I had a little time over the weekend and thought I would put those prints to good use.



The print on this first card features the Positive Sign stencil as well as the Headphone Dienamics and one of the Keep On Rockin' sentiments.



For the second card I pulled out the newest Blueprints dies and Totally Happy sentiment set.  The balloons were both shaded with some tone on tone inking, although it's hard to see it on the blue balloon.  The print features the Fishnet stencil.

Short and sweet for today.  Hope your week is off to a great start!

  4. Ohh!! Those backgrounds are so fun!! I love the cards you created with them.

    I have seen some videos on how to use the plate to see if I wanted it. It looked a bit intimidating to me, though.

  20. I'm pretty sure you and Ellie rocked the Gelli plate action. I'd love to see that thing in action. You always have very cool results. Digging how you used the pieces as bold statements on these cards :)
