Saturday. Gelli Plate scraps Rock!!!!


Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by.
I can’t chat long; we are off up to London for a weekend.
We live so close, and yet how seldom do we make the effort? When we are showing guests round mostly!
But onwards with today’s project. 
Just a quickie, using scraps and a lovely stamp.
The Garden Heart

Mostly pictures, ready?
Here’s a bunch of Buff Titanium acrylic copy paper scraps I have accumulated whilst cleaning my Gelli Plate.


Pick one and stamp the Garden Heart stamp in Sepia Archival. Necessary on acrylic.


Flicked the light on and the photos changed!
Keep going...


Mount on matching card, then on a larger black piece.


Next piece of copy paper scrap. trim it back,


and layer it up on a sheet of double -sided adhesive.


Cut a few strips.


Arrange and attach at the base.


So that’s 2 ways to use up Gelli scraps:
Stamp on them directly, 
or attach them to double-sided tape and cut into panels or strips. 

Colour in the Garden Heart image with Distress Markers. 
They smear nicely on an acrylic base, for a real antique look.


They blend beautifully on the acrylic base.


Use your finger to blend across the background of the heart.


All done. Got to go.
London’s calling!!!


Have a great weekend!

much love

  5. Hallo liebe Barbara,

    ich wünsche dir ein wunderschönes Wochenende in London.

    Von der Technik mit den Resten bin ich wieder total begeistert. Ich habe Reste der Gelli-Plate auch schon zu Blümchen verarbeitet und auf die Karten gebracht. Das sieht toll aus wenn man Ton in Ton arbeiten kann. Die Gelli-Plate ist einfach Klasse.
    Ganz liebe Grüße Silvi

  16. super cool way of using up gelli scraps. i find that the prints on paper tend to look crisper too rather than on card. the good thing about print is that it thickens the paper and so it is not so flimsy.
    enjoy London, hugs xx

  21. Just off to look at my scraps to see what I can use for this project - although I only have the heart stamp, not the sentiment, but I'm sure I'll find something else to go with it!

    Have fun in London and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care, Carole x

  29. Hi Barb,
    Enjoy (if that's the right word for London) your trip to the big city.
    Love this as I'm a brown and cream gal, and loads of other colours as well!!!
    Roz, you have the perfect job after Barb's of course, Working in a craft warehouse - do they pay you or do you just hand over your salary to them?
    Off to do the ironing before granddaughters arrive for sleep over xx

  32. What a great use of scraps Barbara. The garden heart is a very pretty stamp, and Maya's lovely verse goes beautifully and together with the strips makes a wonderful finished card. It's definitely worth keeping leftover bits for future use though. Have a lovely time in London Barbara. x

  34. Love the card Barbara - I don't use my jelly plate often enough to get many left overs, but I' give this a go. I have the sentiment, (what a great lady). And a heart stamp, sadly not this one though.
