Welcome back for my second group post with Papertrey Ink. Today we are featuring the new Building Block stamp set and coordinating dies designed by Nichole Heady.
This set is so fun with it’s endless ways to customize and stack the sentiments. On this card I used the dies to create three windows for the stacked sentiments. I also stamped the diagonal stripes for a sunny ombre look against the Tropical Teal cardstock. The flowers were die cut using the new Button Stack dies.
For this next card I used one of the solid blocks and stamped it about a thousand times in a spectrum of loveliness. Then I trimmed out a gap to adhere a strip of gold foil cardstock underneath it.
Look at the beautiful colors and coverage that you get with these inks….what’s not to love? I also wanted to mention how much I adore the typewriter font that is used for these sentiments.
I have the opportunity to provide you with your eighth “building block” for the card you can create today for Papertrey Ink’s latest challenge.
Each Design Team member has a basic “building block” options for card making to share with you. The intent is for you to visit each blog and collect all of the building blocks necessary to create a beautiful card.
Each team member, including myself, has six numbered selections for a specific category. Roll a die or use a random number generator to select which item number you will need to work with from their list. If you do not have the supplies for the item you end up with, feel free to roll again. Collect nine item selections total, one from each team member, and get to work creating your masterpiece!”
