PTI MIM #211: Using Gelatos With Stamps

Melissa Phillips showed us how to use Gelatos with our stamps in this week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. Since I only have four Gelatos, I was a bit limited with the ink colors I could use. Here's what I created on Sunday evening (surprise, surprise).

To create my Bitty Bouquet, I first die-cut a circle using Nestabilities Large Standard Circles from Stamper's Select White Card Stock. After stamping everything and adding my gelatos, I attached it to my Berry Sorbet card base. Cutting another circle using Spring Rain and two dies (1/4" difference in diameter) to get just the ring, I glued that to my SS White stitched rectangle which was then adhered to the card base using SU Dimensionals. For even more dimension, I raised up my Winter Wisteria Bountiful Banner die-cut stamped in Tropical Teal ink curving the sentiment up a bit. I think I need more Gelatos so I can try this technique again. 

Hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day! Sorry I haven't perused blogs yet and commented.
