gelli play and a spot of stamp carving

I finally cracked open my gelli plate!  I'd ummed and ahhed about buying one, then decided I would whilst at Happy Stampers in May - it's been in the packet up until this week! 

I love how quick and easy it is to use (once you finally have a brayer to hand!)... and the different texture the paint produces on the paper.  I pasted some of the paper in my little A5 moleskine journal then set to carving a poppy seed stamp.

I'm not sure what I used, something in my stamp carving stash, but I didn't like it!  I much prefer carving an eraser.


  1. Fabulous Sarah, I love your carved poppy stamp and your backgrounds are very effective. Tracy x x

  2. That is a brilliant poppy stamp! And welcoe to the world of gelli - what took you so long! :-)

  3. no gelli plate background ever looks wrong does it Sarah? love your poppy carving.

  4. Love your poppy seed head. Playing with drawings of them too. Must get the gelli plate out as well - inspiring pics.

  5. Love my gelli plate it's so versatile you can produce backgrounds for all sorts of projects, it's very addictive. Your hand carved Poppy stamp is fabulous. x

  6. Hope you won't regret it :-D The stamp is so very stunning, love it! And it fits perfectly with the gorgeous background prints. Suzanne
