Acrylic blocks

The Open Sea, Stampin' Up! Acrylic blocks

Good morning Crafty Hippies!
Today's project is a slightly more masculine card. I achieved this effect by rubbing Acrylic blocks (meant for holding the clear mount cling stamps) in our ink pads, and then rubbing onto the card to create this effect. Minimal effort for maximum style!

I think it has created a beautiful sea-scape! I was intending to make a sky and then silhouette it with plants and flowers; but I finished with a sea instead, so used the ship stamp from the set "The Open Sea" to finish the look. I haven't put a sentiment on it, but it wouldn't spoil it to do so. A perfect card for a man.

I guess the beauty of crafting is that sometimes a project will take on a life of its own and you'll end up with something different to what you set out to create.

Acrylic blocks from Stampin' Up! are big and chunky - they're fantastic quality and are a must if you use clear-mount stamps. We have them in a variety of sizes:

The largest block (F) measures 12.4 x 15.2cm to give you an indication of size. These (as are all Stampin' Up! products) are available to order through me - you don't have to be local or have a party as many people think.

You can also order online here

See you tomorrow!
