I think it is set to be one of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours, although it's very hard to photograph!

Soft Sea Foam is a very pale and delicate shade of green. It coordinates perfectly with other soft and subtle colours.

Regular visitors to this blog will have seen that along with the new colours I've also been enjoying stamping with Clear Blocks (technique below), and have often teamed the result with the new Enjoy Life stamp set.

I do get a bit hooked on a technique and today's project is no exception.

I love how you get a different result every single time. The detail from the block actually looks like a field with a gorgeous purple sky. Follow the directions below to make your project and see what the result is. The beautiful thing about this technique is you get a different effect every single time.

Make today's card 
1. Apply some Soft Sea Foam ink to an acrylic block using the edge of the ink pad. Do the same with Highland Heather. I used Clear Block C for this project. 
2. With an Aqua Painter carefully blend the two colours, taking care not to add too much water to your Acrylic Block. 
3. Stamp the Acrylic Block directly on to your Whisper White Cardstock
4. Stamp the images and sentiments over the top in Basic Black
5. Adhere your card front to Basic Black Cardstock and assemble your card.

These are all new colours for Stampin' Up! and they go together beautifully.

You might have noticed the new style ink pad, too! I can say that I truly love these new pads as they are so easy to stack.



Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I try to update it regularly to give you lots of paper crafting ideas and colour suggestions. It's not limited to cardmaking, you could use these techniques and colour combinations for scrapbooking projects and home decor projects, too.

Anyway, take care,
