STAMPlorations Inspiration #101 and Mixed Media Card Challenge


It's Inspiration Tuesday over at STAMPlorations.  When I was making this card for the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop I pulled out this purple Gelli print and made both cards at the same time.

The Gelli print is made with acrylic paints, and the circular marks were created by a cardboard tube.  I stamped the coffee cup directly onto the panel, then pierced through the card at the sides of the wrap, threaded purple jute through and tied it at the centre.  I added some white highlights around the lid with a white gel pen, and double stacked the Oh Frap! diecut.  The sentiment comes from The Bee's Knees Pets stamp set.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team.

This card also serves as a reminder for The Mixed Media Card Challenge, where the theme is Black and Purple with an option of twine.


ETA: Adding this to Becca's Hop to Stop :)

  7. Lovely geli printing! Does your geli plate stain afterwards? Mine did after the first use and I couldn't clean it all off!

    1. I use several brands of acrylic paint and don't get any staining, but sometimes ther's a build-up of paint around the edges, which eventually comes off on a subsequent print - I like that, the more build-up the better for me :)
