Gelli Plate and Lavinia Stamps - Thinking of You Card

I recently watched an on-line tutorial by Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps, where she was making backgrounds using a Gelli Plate, Colorbox Inks and Brusho paints.  I had to have a go, it was messy, but I loved each unexpected result. It's definitely something I will be doing again.

I decided which background I would use and without any real agenda, looked at my Lavinia Stamps to see which I thought would suit.  I decided on the "Seasonal Tree" and "Midnight Meandering Rabbits"

I stamped the tree in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" and the rabbits in Versafin "Olympia Green".  I used a touch of Distress Ink with a moist paintbrush to colour the land at the base of the rabbits and tree.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment, which is by Hobby Arts Ltd.


  1. Amazing card Samantha, I watched the tutorial and enjoyed it, made me even more impressed by your cards, love it

  2. Ah, thank you Meg. I loved giving the Gelli Plate a go, the process is a bit messy, I know I need to clear a larger area next time, but I like the results and each one is different. Sam x
