Ho Ho Ho

Good morning and happy Wednesday. I've been making some more Christmas cards (yes I did say the C word again) for the latest PaperArtsy 'stamping platform' challenge. 

 I started by cutting some gelli plate prints to the size that I needed.

Then I arranged the stamps on my  Tim Holtz platform and stamped a couple of times. 

Once the ink was dry, I coloured them with Fresco paints while the print was still on the platform. Luckily these dry really quickly, so  as soon as the paint was dry I re-stamped to add the detail back in.

Then you just pop in another background print and repeat. Yay three more cards for the Christmas pile! These were fun to make and I guess I'm now officially in Christmas mode.
Have a happy week, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. Look at all those fabulous gelli prints - and the finished cards look great with those lovely baubles. Great use of the platform to get your design ready for multiple makes.

  2. Great Xmas cards, looks like you are having fun! Hugs, Valerie

  3. They are all beautiful, I love the pink one, it is fabulous! Such a great idea to leave the stamps on the platform to overstamp the images, I would never have thought of that! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. These look good.
    I'd say you are definitely in the Christmas mode :)

    All the best Jan

  5. Your gelli prints looks gorgeous, and with the christmas stamps, they are really wonderful, and so sweet cards. Great idea to paint while on the platform, Sue- thank you .
    Hugs, xx

  6. Terrific cards and great to see some gelli plate backgrounds. Wonderful ideas on this project for sure

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. Fab idea Sue, I have tons of backgrounds to do the same technique.

  8. Great cards Sue. I love the colours used for the Gelli prints too. Happy creative weekend, Angela xXx
