Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Inking with acrylic blocks

Hi Stampers!
I'm back today with another fun and easy inking technique.  I neglected to take any pictures of the process, but I think I can adequately describe it with words. It is not rocket science!  Here's my card:


I used some more subtle colors in this card, but I think you can see the blocks of ink on the background of this card. That was accomplished by taking an acrylic block with no stamp on it and tapping it on the ink pad directly. I then stamped on the paper. See, super easy.  I used 3 different sizes of acrylic blocks, the 3 smallest ones we sell, sizes A, B and G.  Both sheets of black and very vanilla Designer Series Paper are from a retired collection. I wanted the contrast to stand out so kept that part simple.  This isn't a fancy card and the point of it was to have my class practice stamping with an acrylic block and no stamp attached to it.

I think a bolder color scheme would make this style of stamping very dramatic. I may try it for some graduation cards with school colors used for my block stamping!

Hope you have a great Thursday...
Happy Stampin'!
Sarah
