Hi, everyone. It's Monika back again with another spotlight project for you. Today I'm giving the Joyful set the Gelli Plate treatment combined with a spot of Kiss Stamping.
To start, I stamped the stocking on a piece of white cardstock using black Archival Ink, coloured it using Fairy Plum and Purple Sage Twinkling H2Os, and fussy cut it once dry.
Next, I applied Blackberry Bliss ink all over my Gelli Plate using a brayer before kissing the plate with a clean wreath stamp to lift off some of the ink and taking my first print. I sprayed my Gelli Plate with a bit of water and lifted second and third print. The wreath texture is still quite visible in the second print and has completely faded in the third one.
For my stocking card I worked with a first print, stamped my "under the mistletoe"sentiment in Elegant Eggplant and blended the edges using the same colour ink. I layered my panel on a piece of silvery glitter card, tied a bow from silver ribbon, layered on my plum coloured base card, attached my stocking with foam dots, and finished off by adding a couple of gems and some glitter glue.
Here is the craft along video showing you exactly how I lifted the prints plus a few extra tips as I go along.
And because it was such fun, I made a couple more cards using the second impression print. These are simply embellished using 'Merry Christmas' die cuts, gems and sequins. The Merry Christmas in the second card has been cut from the piece of scrap I used to stamp off the ink during the kiss stamping process.
