Hello! Nadine here today sharing how I created several birthday cards using a Gel Press and a stencil.
The Crafter’s Workshop has provided me with some of the products to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I first started with the Gel Press Gel Printing Plate 8″ x 12″ but a smaller plate of been used, this is just the size that I have. Then using a little amount of acrylic paint and a brayer I spread the paint onto the Gel Press then placed a white piece of cardstock onto it.
Here is what it looked like after I pulled the cardstock from the Gel Press.
Next, I added another color of acrylic paint and then laid the TCW871 Native Star Stencil onto the Gel Press.
Then I placed the same piece of cardstock down over the stencil and used the brayer over the back of the paper to make sure the paint transfers onto the cardstock. Here is what it looked like when I pulled it off the Gel Press.
I kept repeating the same process with different color paints and slightly rotating the stencil.
After repeating this several times this is what the finish results looked like.
I made several different cards using different color combos but using the same TCW871 Native Star Stencil for all of my cards. Then I just cut them down and made them into birthday cards by adding a stamped sentiment onto a strip of cardstock to the front of my cards.
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my project!
