Hi there! It’s Marsha here, and today, I’ll share how I created cards with the new Gelli Arts® holiday stencils.
Giovanna Zara and I designed six fun new Gelli Arts® seasonal stencils, and we’re super excited to finally show you!
All 5″x7″ stencils are available individually and in a complete set.
As you can see in the video, the stencils and masks are super versatile and suitable for all of your favorite gel printing techniques.
Tips for printing with stencils and masks:
If you use heavier paper to gel print on, as I do in the video, you may find that you can’t get a clear stencil print. The cardstock just isn’t pliable enough to get in touch with the paint in all the crevices of the stencil.
My solution is to use a thinner paper (like tissue paper or copy paper) to pull the initial print. This way, all of the detail of the stencil is preserved.
The Gelli Arts® Holiday Trees Stencil comes with two tree masks. This allows you to get even more creative with the stencil by printing the scene in several layers.
I like to use repositionable adhesive to adhere the stencils and masks to the print so they do not move while gel printing the next layer.
The new holiday stencils have fun little details you can color in. Use your favorite (glitter) markers, pencils and inks to enhance your prints and make them even more festive!
We can’t wait to see what you create with the stencils, so tag #GelliArts and @gelliarts on social media when you share your results. Happy gel printing!
