CUTplorations february

image source: Huffington Post

Adios January. Hello February. Time for a new  CUTplorations challenge. This one could be graphic, romantic, tell me.

I went all kinds of crazy with my new dies. And out came an all occasion card.

My Gelli plate got taken for a ride again. With acrylic paints. February is gonna be Gelli plate month on my blog. Don't say I didn't warn ya ;)

This card was actually pretty simple to make. I used negatives from Uppercase Alphabet Plate and Lowercase Alphabet Plate as masks on my Gelli plate when pulling a print and then used a portion of that print for my BG here. Used my handy dandy frame cut from a cereal box to decide which section of the print I wanted to use.

I adhered a bit of vellum to tone done the bottom half of the card. Then glued one of the masks on top of that and finished it up with the Awesome Word die cut from woodgrain CS and backed with fun foam. And the "U R"? That little blue square was a mask from a different Gelli plate print!

I sure hope you'll join us for some die cutting fun this month over at CUTplorations. Just make a project using die cuts based on our inspiration graphic. Be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product and hook up to the gallery. Winners will be chosen by the DT. Here's the link.

Don't forget about my STAMPlorations discount code in the sidebar if you're in a hurry to get your hands on some new goodies ;)

I'm taking this card over to Danipeuss Kartenchallenge - Explosion of Color and Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

I want my own gelli plate.

That being said, absolutely awesome card, Maria! Wow, love the burst of colors..and your idea of using both the positive and negative of the die cut in the same card - just wonderful!!
