Hello and welcome to the Gelli Arts® Blog! Today, our Ninja Jr. Printmakers are bringing you some gift tag and card ideas for this holiday season!
☆Gift Tags by Tuva☆
Tuva has made some lovely gift tags using leaves on her gel plate. She used PaperArtsy paint, Archival ink and some twine to complete the tags.
☆Cards and Mini Booklet by Maisie☆
For our next project idea, Maisie made cards with the Gelli Arts® DIY Gel Animals kit.
Maisie first cut out a mask after tracing the included flamingo image. Then, she put some colors down on her plate and placed the mask over the gel plate and pulled a print. Maisie completed the card by drawing on some flamingo legs and wings!
Maisie turned some of these prints into a mini booklet!
☆Cards by Aimee☆
Aimee here! During this season, I really love the changing color of the leaves and that is what inspired me to make this particular print. In order to create the fall theme, I used warmer tones and also printed with a layer of gold paint on top of the initial design. I often find that there are lots of birthdays and other celebrations occurring during the fall, and creating cards using my Gelli Arts® made prints is a perfect way to incorporate crafts into gift giving, as well as to show my appreciation through something handmade.
☆Cards by Paige☆
Paige here! You can use your gel printed papers to create fun cards for the holidays. I used my Gelli Arts® supplies to create a range of papers to use in my cards.
My first card is a single printed paper with two layers, the first a simple coloured layer with a small amount of texture pressed in and the second a metallic paint decorated with small masks made of plastic, made with a snowflake- shaped cutter.
My second card design was made using the same paper cutter, this time cutting the snowflake from some different printed papers and sticking them onto a piece of blank card.
My third design, a christmas tree, was made by cutting strips of paper and laying them in descending order up the card, topping them with a snowflake.
My final card is a bauble design, which was made with a circle cutter and a silver pen, as well as the snowflakes I made earlier.
