Spotlight: Stamping with Gelli Plate

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with a spotlight on stamping with the GelliArts printing plates.

There a couple great sized printing plates perfect for stamping with. The 5″x7″plate  fits an entire card front and is also perfect for creating backgrounds in your art journals.  I’ll be using the 3″x5″ plate for my cards where I’ve overlap colors on the paper. These smaller size plates fit inside most stencils for complete coverage and are easy to put onto a block to use with paints and stamp onto card stock.


I’ve tried several types of paints with the plates and have found that the Dina Wakeley line are creamy, well blended, easy to spread and vibrant! My favorite! I’ve kept my colors in groups and overlapped those which match best.


To finish the card up, I’ve sewn around the edges of the vellum, it’s been humid here in the midwest and sewing helped keep the vellum flat and in place. I’ve shot a video of my GelliArts printing plate adventures and card construction. You can view it below or on our YouTube Channel.
