Stencil Sunday | Gelli Printing ATC and CAS Card

Hello everyone… Happy Sunday! Today, I am sharing my favorite ways of using stencils is with Gelli Printing Plate on ATC and CAS card.

These projects are for Sunday Stencil feature post at STAMPlorations Blog.

My first project is this CAS card:

On this CAS card background, I used the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations Stencil. I added the light blue acrylic paint on the cardstock with make up sponge lightly. After the paint dried, I cut it with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies and I added it on a white card base with EZ Runner Gran.

I used the Make Marks 4 ARTplorations Stencil and pulled couple monoprints using Gelli Printing Plate and acrylic paints. After that, I cut it out with Stitched Tags Nesting Dies. I added one of the Coffee Heaven Clear Stickers on it. I added some DL. Art Mocha crinkle ribbon on it and added it on the card with 3D foam adhesive.

I sprayed some Cocoa Marabu Art Spray on a heavyweight white cardstock, cut out the cup from Tag O’Coffee Dies, and added on the card with 3D foam tape.

This second project is a set of 3 Artist Trading Cards. Making these ATC cards are simple and quick with Make Marks stencilsCoffee Heavens clear stickersATC Tag Builder Dies, acrylic paints, gelatos, gelli printing plate, and make up sponge.

On this first ATC background, I used the Make Marks 2 ARTplorations Stencil and Make Marks 6 ARTplorations Stencil.

On this second ATC background, I used the Make Marks 4 ARTplorations Stencil and Make Marks 5 ARTplorations Stencil.

Kicking off this blog hop… I made two caffeinated cards. First is this CAS Fall themed card for a special friend.

I used the Coffee Lovers Clear Stamps, Fall Greetings Clear Stamps, and Friends and Flowers Clear Stamps on this card.

I tried the no-line watercoloring technique but I still need a practice on this technique… (wink.. wink… ) I stamped the image with Cheerful VersaFine Clair ink pad and then colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens. After that, I dried the image and then fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the cup with Pinecone Versafine Clair ink pad and Tulip Red, then I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens and waterbrush. For the steam and sentiment, I stamped them with the same ink pad.

I added the leaves image and cup on the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Grand Runner and 3D foam tape.

My second card is a mixed media card. I created the mixed media background with gelli printing technique using Helen G. Designs ARTplorations Stencils.

I stamped the cups from the Christmas Cocoa – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on the red printed paper with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, dried it with craft heater. Then I fussy cut them and I colored them with Faber Castell Big Brush Pens. I added extra highlight on the cups with permanent marker.

I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee Talk – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on a white cardstock, then I trimmed it into sentiment banner, and I added it on top of the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D foam tape.

I added a half-piece of the paper doily on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue and then I added both cups on top of it with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Gran Runner. I finished this card with some sequins.

I used positive and negative stamping with cover plate die with Distress Ink Pads and water to crate these cards.

I laid the cover plate die on top of the watercolor paper and using blending brush, I added the colors. I removed the watercolor paper, and then I sprayed the cover plate die with some water lightly, and then I added another piece of watercolor paper on top of that inked, wet cover plate. I gently pressed the paper. I picked up the paper off the cover plate and dried it with craft heater right away.

I sprayed both papers with water lightly with Distress Sprayer bottle and then I dabbed off the water with paper towel and dried them again with craft heater.

I cut out both background panels with the stitched rectangles dies and I added them on white cards with Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Gran Runner and I added the sentiment on the card with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam tape.

My card today is a mixed media, clean and simple with coffee theme:

Designs (oh that’s me! *wink wink*) and the Coffee Cup ARTplorations Stencil to create that background on a blacked watercolored paper using the Deco Foil Metallix Gel – Black Ice and Deco Foil Stencil Pal. I added extra white splatters with white acrylic paint with water and fan brush.

For the sentiment, it is one of the fun clear sticker sentiment from the Just Caffeinate Clear Stickers. I added the sticker on a white cardstock and then trimmed it with scissors around the sticker to give it a sturdy base. I added on the card with 3D foam tape.
