I recently went on a craft workshop in Devon learning about Gelli Plate printing, it was a great class and I was really inspired by the images you can create using simple household items plus acrylic paint or even Distress Oxide inks. Of course I got home and ordered my own Gelli Plate straight away!!
When it arrived I had great fun making loads of card backgrounds with my Oxide inks. This one uses Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio inks and a Snowflake die from Simon Says , I also used bubble wrap which creates a fabulous effect in the ink.
With this background I also ran it through my Crystal Distortion embossing folder for added texture. I then die cute this cute Li'l Gnome also from Simon Says in this beautiful pool coloured glitter card.Just a heat embossed sentiment and some sequins and a very simple card. I am going to have lots of fun with my Gelli Plate!!

This is a card I made for my daughters Birthday back in February, she loves a cocktail so I knew this set from Tim Holtz would be perfect for her.
I was lucky enough to get a Spellbinders hot foil machine for my birthday and wanted to use one of my trial pieces in the design. This is the Elegant Oval plate and I have used silver foil, it was the perfect background for my cocktails.
I stamped and coloured with Zig markers my cocktails and then fussy cut , I added them to my card using foam tape for some dimension. The sentiment is also hot foiled and lurking in the back of a drawer I found some really old foiled sentiment sheets that I used when I first started crafting, luckily I had a silver Daughter sticker which matched perfectly, ( so glad I held on to the sticker sheets, I knew they would come in useful again one day!!).
Have a great weekend
