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.
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.
