Stamped Cards with a POP Paint base.

Posted on 20 Jul 2017

Today on the blog I am sharing a selection of quick cards using some POP Paint backgrounds and my favourite selection of Chiswick stamps.step 1 – Create a first layer of paint on a cardstock background using Minted POP Paint.
I used my Gelli plate to create my paint background.

step 2 – Add a second layer of paint using a brick wall stencil to add colour and texture.
Add a thin layer of paint onto your Gelli plate and use your brayer to roll out the paint. Position the stencil onto the paint and pull the print onto your cardstock.

step 3 – Use a piece of scrap paper to clean your brayer – this piece of paper can also be used for your card backgrounds.

step 4 – Stamp images onto your cardstock pieces and paper background using a selection of Chiswick stamps.

step 5 – Trim your background pieces to fit onto the front of your cards. My cards measure 9x9cm.

Add some embellishments, buttons and punched flowers to finish off your cards.

These quick and easy cards will make a perfect gift for someone. Group them together with some matching envelopes and package them into a gift box.
Perfect for someone that does not have time to make their own cards.
Making use of every piece of scrap paper – experiments and even not so pretty Gelli printing attempts can turn into something really beautiful in a few easy steps.
