It’s true! We’re having a Christmas Block Party and you’re all invited! Do you know what our party favor to you is? 20% off of our clear blocks for the month of October! That is such a great deal and we love our blocks — so do you! In all seriousness, we’re sharing with you today a beautiful Christmas card that we created using a clear block, some Liquid Colors and more! Are you ready to see? Of course you are!
Isn’t that stunning?! We love the design AND the color palette. It’s a little bit unusual for Christmas, but we love the feeling of cool and winter it evokes. If it’s not the palette for you, you can certainly change it to fit the colors you would prefer use! Now, how did we make it?
We’re so excited because this card not only uses our clear blocks to stamp but also uses our Create A Palette refillable Ink Pad! We love using this thing AND sharing with you fun ways to use it. We filled the pad up using our Liquid Colors. We used our Lavender Fusion, Pretty Amethyst, Lovely Blue, Cool Pool and Catalina Splash to create this beautiful background.
Once you’ve inked up the Create-A-Palette, we can stamp/drag the ink across the clear block to create stripes of each color on the block. So pretty!
Now, to get that mottled, watercolor look we simply spray a little bit of water from our Media Mister onto the clear block.
On top of the moistened block you can lay your paper — we used Color Splash Watercolor Sheets, but you could use Whip Cream Cardstock, too! Then, smoosh your paper into the block, picking up the color onto your paper.
Look at that beautiful color! Now, just to add the tiniest bit of shimmer, we splattered a little bit of Sparkle Silk. We need the shine! Thanks to the stunning background you can keep the overall design of the card simple — adding your stamped images then your sentiment heat embossed onto Journey Vellum. So very elegant and perfect to send to anyone this holiday season!
It’s nearly the end of the month so you don’t want to delay in picking up your clear blocks while they are 20% off! You can always use an extra and I bet there is a size you do not have in your stash!
