Bloomin’ Marvelous Acrylic Block Stamping

bloomin' marvelous block stamping Here’s a clean and simple one-layer Bloomin’ Marvelous card made with the acrylic block stamping technique.  Then I just added a few rhinestones and the matching Tangerine Tango ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack for some extra punch.  (You can view the video tutorial here.)

SAB: Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set, Sycamore Street ribbon & button pack

Simply ink your acrylic block directly into your stamp pad, in this case Daffodil Delight, and stamp directly onto your paper.  I inked the block each time I stamped for consistent results.  Then I stamped the Tangerine Tango and the Island Indigo flowers on top of the block stamping.  I stamped the Tangerine Tango flower twice before reinking to get the two-tone effect you see here.

The ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack is so bright and cheery looking and so easy to work with.  It’s lightweight and ties into a know or bow very nicely.  And you’ll get the Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Pool Party ribbons in the pack.

A Sentimental Journey Island Indigo Phone Booth Card

feeling sentimental phone booth card

This Sentimental Journey Island Indigo phone booth card was one of the first that I made with this set.  After stamping the phone booth and tearing the paper I did a little sponging and added some hash marks with the Island Indigo marker to resemble the lines in the stamp.  I wasn’t sure if I liked it so I’ve been slow about showing it here.  🙂

I used two Sale-a-bration goodies in this card: the Sentimental Journey stamp set, of course, and the ribbon from the Sycamore Street ribbon & button pack.
