Posts Tagged ‘gel plate’



I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

A big CONGRATS to Jeanne, the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast (FS336)! What a fabulous gallery she has! I chose her May card to case. I kept the layout and use of fancy die cuts, but I used different images, slightly different colors and used the die cut clover images instead of flowers.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I used a background I made from a Mono Print #2 technique tutorial ( It’s also on the ODBD Blog as  No Gel Plate, No Problem!). It’s a fun alternative to gel plates called Mono Printing. For the clover, I stamped it several times, colored w/ Copics and die cut them using the matching clover die. I arranged them around my die cut sentiment, added a couple of fancy die cuts behind it and attached to my 5.50 4.25 card. I added a couple of fussy cut little bees from the clover set.

These are the Copics I used to color the clover.
