Posted on 22 Oct 2015

Hi everyone – welcome to another wonderful post using some of the Chiswick stamp sets.
We all know by nowq how versatile stamps are and they can be used over and over again simply by combining it with
a different product to achieve a different look – right? RIGHT!
Today I am sharing a quick and easy colour blocked card with you.
stamped heart cardRemember when we use to create with blocked stencils for cards and scrapbook pages?
Well i recently rediscovered a block stencil I had in my stash and teamed it with some of my favourite inks and stamps
to create this quick card. And to make things even easier I was inspired by one of my Creative Heroes – Carolyn Peeler for this card.
She is an amazingly talented vintage crafter and I love her style. She loves creating in an organized block style and that is so inspirational.
So – it just goes to show that even when we are inspired by others – and we ALL are – you can still put your own spin on things – just like I did with this card.
Inspiration is all about using what you have to make beautiful things!
Step 1 – I Used some of my Chiswick dye inks to create coloured cardstock pieces, and also grabbed some of my favourite patterned papers for this card.
step 1Step 2 – Emboss some of the coloured pieces of white cardstock.
step 2Step 3 – Stamp your images onto the patterned papers as desired using black ink.
step 3Now arrange the pieces of papers on a folded card using your block stencil.
Add some finishing touches like die-cuts and diamante.
