NEW! Gelli® Mini Printing Plate Sets!

Excitement levels are off the charts here at Gelli Arts®! We're bursting with inspiration for stamping with our NEW Mini Printing Plates! Watch this video and see how AWESOME the Mini geometric plates are!!

The Gelli® Mini printing plates are available in two different sets. One set includes a square, a circle and a triangle. The other set has a rectangle, an oval, and a hexagon. Each Mini plate fits within a 3" area. Versatile shapes — so FUN to use!

These basic geometric shapes are the building blocks of endless great designs! What CAN'T you do with the Gelli® Mini plates?!!! Simply put one on an acrylic block and stamp your heart out — on whatever you're working on!

Don't have an acrylic block? A sheet of acrylic or any smooth plastic piece will do.  The lid of a CD case works just fine.

Creating designs with these amazing little monoprinting plates is just like printing with any Gelli® plate. Stencils, combs, and found textures all work great!

The Crafter's Workshop 'Bits', 'Fragments', and 'Remnants' lines of stencils and masks are sized right for printing with the Mini Gelli plates! And so perfect if you want to create small layered images like these.

When it comes to adding accents to an art journal or a planner page—stamping with these fun Mini plate shapes creates such artful impressions! Each stamped Mini image is unique— a true monotype!

The Mini plates are so addicting—I get totally carried away! So much for adding just an 'accent' to this 'To Do' page! :)

When you start stamping with Mini plates it's hard to stop! Especially using shapes that 'fit' together to create an all-over pattern. Start stamping triangles and hexagons and you'll see what I mean!

This print was stamped on a piece of Strathmore Bristol, which was first trimmed to 8.5"x11. After the print was dry, I cut it in half and used an Arc punch to make holes along the margin. So the pages fit right into my disk-bound planner. Now I can look at those pages all the time! If I want to work further on the prints, they're easy to pop out and stick back in. How nice!

Those of us who love layers in our artwork will welcome the creative effects you can get using these small printing plates. Is there an easier way to create a focal point on a larger piece? I'm even adding stamped Mini plate images to the art journal pages I use to clean off the excess paint from my brayer, palette knife and texture tools while Gelli® printing.

Simply put, I'm having a BLAST stamping with each of the new Mini plate shapes!

All of the artwork shown here and in the video was printed using a variety of DecoArt Acrylic paints, including their Media acrylics, Americana Acrylics, Americana Multi-Surface Satin, and Dazzling Metallics. I'm so pleased with the results I get from all of these paints. And they're great for stamping with the new Gelli® Mini plates. A small drop of paint is about all it takes.

Mini Printing Plates are made of the same gel material as all of the other sizes of Gelli plates! So you KNOW they're an amazing and unique printing experience! Try them and see what all the excitement is about!
