Hello my fellow crafters, welcome to inspiration for cards. In today’s project I am testing out the Ranger Gel plate for the very first time. what are my thoughts? do I like it? how does it work? well let me tell you… it was way to much fun. some things did not work out. I tried stamping with a beautiful Tim Holtz stamp but that was a fail. However the soft look and the beautiful blend it gives are just stunning. and its different than anything else I have tried before.

In the end I turned one of the backgrounds in to a card using a matching embossing folder that is similar to the stencil I used on the plate.
