DT Inspiration - Using a Gelly Plate

Hi! It's Jane here today with a little DT inspiration using Uniko stamps and a gelly plate.

Here's the stamp sets I used:


BIGBOLDHello    BirthdaySentimentsPP

Here's my process:

1. I gathered my supplies

2. I added ink straight from the pads to the gelly plate and spritzed it with water.

3. I used the ink from the gelly plate and the detail stamp from the set to created a random pattern. I also took a print from the gelly plate to create a background on a separate piece of card. (forgot to take a pic, sorry)

4.  I used the outline stamp round the flower details.

5. I used the outline stamp on the background gelly plate print. This was done quite randomly as this  is a negative print and the outline does not fit exactly.

6. I stamped some extra details onto the background print using the smaller stamps from the set.

7. I created three cards using these printed sheets.

My first card uses a panel die cut from the the background print and a camouflaged greeting within this panel. I matted it onto lilac card and added a stamped sentiment.

My second card uses the left over background print with a stamped sentiment inside the negative die cut panel space.

My third card uses the stamped pattern, split into two parts with a die, matted onto lilac card with a ribbon strip and a stamped sentiment.

Here's a last look at the three cards and stamp sets I used:

There are more details about the other supplies I used on my blog - HERE.
