Simple Thank You Notelets Using a Gel Plate

I made this set of notelets using the new Alliums stencil from Claritystamp together with the round gel press petite plate.  They are all different, but by using the same stencil, stamps and colours all connected.  I even coloured some ribbon to match!

Cut a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card into four (3.5” x 3.5”). Add Tenacious Teal Artistry ink to the round Gel Press Petite and blend the ink with a brayer. Lay the large stencil onto one of the pieces of card and press the gel press petite over it. Remove the stencil and stamp again onto a second sheet of card.
Repeat with a different part of the stencil.
Add stamping in black ink using mini word chain sentiments and the matching Alliums stamps.
Mat onto black card cut using the middle sized Picot square nesting die and then onto 5”x 5” white card blanks.
Colour a piece of plain ribbon with Tenacious Teal ink.
Allow to dry and tie notelets into a package.

If you pop back tomorrow, I'll show you how I made a box for the notelets out of one piece of card!

Lovely colours. I like Tenacious Teal but go carefully with it as very bright. Notelets are a nice idea and matching ribbon.x

I saw these on the show & thought they were a lovely idea for gifts. The sentiment could be changed to several things such as Just to say or Thinking of you. They are handy to have standing by for those unexpected moments when you need a card to send straight away. Thanks for sharing how you did them.
