Learn How to Make a Spring Color Blocking Card

By Jowilna Nolte 

Celebrating Spring with an easy to create color blocker card using stamps and inks only – such a quick way of creating a fun effect without a lot of effort. Anyone can create this with only a few supplies.

 

Skill Level: Beginner

Time: 20 minutes

 

Directions:

Step 1

Ink a large floral background stamp using 3 ink colors. I am using ink pads from Imagine’s latest StazOn On Trend Collection in Cherry Blossom, Plum and Caribbean Green. Swipe the lightest color across your stamp in a straight line. Then use your second color and your third color and swipe over your stamp as well.

 

Step 2

Immediately stamp the image onto smooth white cardstock. Trim your image to fit into the front of a card panel. Keep a small piece of the edge that you cut off.

 

Step 3

Use Tear It! Tape and adhere the thin strip to the bottom edge of the stamped panel and adhere to your card base.

 

Step 4

Stamp your sentiment onto your card panel using VersaFine Clair and finish off with diamante and embellishments.

At Creativation 2020, we introduced 5 new colors of the StazOn full-sized inkpads in a color release called On Trend. We scoured the color trends across different industries such as home decor, fashion, crafting, art, etc and decided on these 5 colors for the release.

On Trend Colors

Cherry Blossom – soft pink. This is one of the first times we have offered a light, soft pastel pink in the StazOn line.

Caribbean Green – soft teal green. This color is a perfect compliment to soft pink and a great color for sea glass crafts.

Bordeaux – deep wine color. This rich wine color is trending in all sorts of industries and we feel it will add plenty of character to mixed media projects.

Plum – deep purple. Dark blues and purples are trending across cinema and fashion. We love this particular hue.

Scarlet Flame – bright red. Everyone needs a true red in their collection. Red is the color of passion and emotion – a perfect color to express love!
