Stampin’ Up! Two Minute Technique: Clear Block Stamping!!!

By | 9 February, 2013

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of some journal pages on my Facebook page that I made using the clear block stamping technique.  I just love this technique, so I created a video tutorial about how to do this technique!  I also created a card…of course!!!

clearblockstampingIsn’t this pretty?  You can use your clear block like a stamp to get different sizes and shapes for background images.  You could use a light color like Crumb Cake or River Rock, or you can use colors like I did here.  I chose 3 colors in the Brights collection: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.  You can see the image is light and airy!  It’s perfect to stamp an image and a sentiment over the top of it!

The image and sentiment both come from the Just Believe stamp set (#120453) and I used clear block “C” to stamp my background rectangles.  For my image, I used Old Olive and my sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  I added an Old Olive Ribbon from the Spring Mini (#129291).

The card base is Old Olive card stock cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The Whisper White mat is cut at 4 x 5-1/4″.  This is my standard card and mat size.  It’s quick and easy!

The card is very quick and simple, yet fabulous!  I’m going to be trying other clear block sizes to see what other cards I can come up with!
