Introducing… Background Blocks Graffiti Texture

Introducing… Background Blocks Graffiti Texture


Welcome to Day 3 of our 7th Birthday & February 2019 Release product introductions. The last two days have been so fun and colourful. If you have missed any of them you can catch up HERE and HERE.

I’m back again today with my guest designer and the design team to show you LOTS of inspiration! This time we are introducing a new Background Blocks Graffiti Texture clear stamp Hopefully you have hopped on over from the start HERE where I have introduced these 2 new products a little.

How about a closer look at the cards I have made using it…




This stamp to me speaks masculine and the randomness of the design appears as if it would be difficult to achieve a seamless pattern. However, with a tiny bit of masking I was able to stamp the block down one edge of a Smokey Slate card stock base.


I added a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks I which is layered with a piece of red card and adhered using foam adhesive. I finished the design with a trio of Nuvo Drops.

For my next card I decided to continue with the masculine theme and the grey colour scheme…


For this card I stamped the block in Altenew Silver Slate ink. I then stamped a trio of the stars from Background Builders: Seeing Stars in Aqualicious, Fresh Lemon and Orange Cream added the same sentiment from Simply Said Blocks I and some enamel stars.


Lastly I wanted to show how this background block can be used for a feminine card…


I was inspired by a couple of my favourite card challenges to create this card. First up the colour combo is from CAS Colours & Sketches seen HERE and below. Then the layout of my card is from Freshly Made Sketches seen HERE and below.

CC&S color307-001

FMS Final 374-001

To make this card I stamped the graffiti block in Rubellite and Pink Diamond ink. I then die cut a two sizes of Sizzix Framelits hearts. The sentiment is from the ‘secret’ clear stamp set being introduced on the 10th 😉


Once I had arranged the die cuts how I wanted them, I went in and added some stamped hearts from Flower Power #3. I also added some White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops to the smaller stamped hearts to add a little sparkle.

That’s all I have to share today using these products, but I know Ruth our Guest Designer this month along with the Design Team have SO much more to share with you.

Hop on by to see what Ruth has created HERE and this is the order of the hop following Ruth…

    So interesting to hear how you came up with the design Bev. This will be so useful for guy cards but I can also see that more girly ones would work too now. 🙂
