Block Stamping Technique Card

Hello! I created another card today to join in Paper Smooches Blog June 2019 Photo Inspiration Challenge. I stamped the Paper Smooches Babe Block on Strathmore Watercolor paper. I used the Misti Stamp Positioning Tool to repeatedly stamp the block clear stamp. I inked the Babe Block stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Squeezed Lemonade ink. I spritz the block stamp with water after applying ink to it. I closed the Misti Door and pressed the stamped to the watercolor paper. Without re-inking the block stamp, I spritz the stamp with water, then stamped the block to the watercolor paper. That is the amazing thing about the Misti Stamp Positioner. You can stamp the image repeatedly. I pressed a paper towel to the wet impression to pick up some of the color. I dried this after using a heat tool.

I positioned the flower stamp at the center of the block impression. The stamp is from Paper Smooches Garden Greetings stamp set. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp this with the help of the Misti Stamping Tool, which I am glad I used. With the watercolor paper being textured, I had to repeat stamp this flower-sentiment stamp. I heat set this to dry it right away.

I am using three pink colors from the Tim Holtz Distress Ink line, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. I rubbed the ink pad on a palette. I picked up the colors with a water brush. For the leaf, I used TH Forest Moss Distress ink. I dried this with the heat tool. I added Perfect Pearls to the flowers and leaves. I used Perfect Pearls Pink Gumball powder on the flower, and Perfect Pearls Green Patina powder on the leaf.

I added another sentiment using Paper Smooches Chit Chat stamp set. After I positioned the stamp on the panel, I closed the Misti Stamping Tool to pick up the stamp. I prepared the area for embossing with a powder tool. I inked the stamp with Delicata Rose Gold pigment ink. I closed the Misti Stamping Tool to stamp the sentiment. I poured clear embossing powder to the sentiment, then heat set it. I repeated this another time for a more smooth embossed sentiment.

I die cut this panel using a trading card die from the Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. I used one of the dies on this set to emboss on the front of the card. I also lightly inked the die with the same Delicata ink so that it does not only leave an embossed impression but it also leaves an inked impression.

I adhered the flower panel to the center of the embossed card front with foam adhesive. I added pink gems from Pretty Pink Posh to the center of the flowers.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
