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.

  1. Your card is stunning. Your video has inspired me to start using my Gelli pad again. Thanks for a great video.

  2. What wonderful color and texture to this card, Shari. I don’t have any plates yet but you’ve added them to the top of my list! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Great demo! Love the ease of these, and the finished product. I would use the “scratch” cleaning sheet too!

  4. What a lovely and unique card. I only saw gelli plates used one other time, on a scrapbook show, and didn’t quite get what they were doing. So, thank you so much for the video. It was much easier to watch you create with them, and it turned out so beautifully.

  5. I’ve never seen a gelli plate used as a stamp. What a novel idea. Love your mix of colours. Very pretty!

  6. I have never seen this technique with the gelli Plate. Never heard of it! Thanks for the intro and for sharing. The card is super lovely! =)

  7. I’ve been wanting a gel plate but told myself I really didn’t need it. BUT .. that small one is kind of neat. I love your card.

  8. Fantastic technique. I have never seen a gelli plate used this way, now I think I need one!

  9. I’m going to have to try the GelliPlate, love the way it looks on the colorful background.
