Quick and Easy Spring Bird card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. This is a quick and easy make using the Gelli Printing Plate to create the background. I used stamps from the Spring Fairy Collection recently featured on Hochanda TV.

AW Spring Bird CAS

I used a technique demonstrated on one of Lesley’s shows recently. I inked up a 4 inch round gelli printing plated with Distress Ink and then lifted off some of the ink using the Big Bold Background Leafy Trails stamp, then transferred the image to stamping card. I overstamped with the Bird and Spring sentiment with Versafine and edged with marker pen to frame. To give added dimension I mounted the image onto the card with foam pads. This technique is so quick and easy – great for batch making.



  • Big Bold Background Leafy Background and Spring Fairies Collection (March and April sets) stamps
  • 6 X 6 inch scalloped white card blank, white stamping card
