Framed Blocks

Mix It Up Challenge Blog #38 Just Us Girls #540 Trend Week

My card today started off using acrylic block stamping for the MIUCB #38 – Anything Goes + Acrylic Block Stamping challenge. I inked up an acrylic block with Distress Oxide Salty Ocean spritzed it with water and stamped, then repeated using Twisted Citron and decided I needed a third color so turned the block and inked with Mustard Seed. I then pulled out a Stampin Up oldie “Garden Silhouettes” and stamped that a few times in Versafine black ink.

Since it looked a little too uninspiring, I decided to combine this challenge with the Just Us Girls #540 Trend Week Frame It challenge. So frame it is exactly what I did using an Impression Obsession frame which cuts out all of the different shapes on one background die. Still not satisfied, I decided the frames need dimension so cut the background frame die out 5 more times to layer the individual pieces. So my frames are built up and then back down again. This was a test of patience to assemble and I believe I may have passed.

Here’s a side view of my card which shows a little bit for of the telescoping effect.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. It’s a beautiful day in Pennsylvania. Thankfully not too hot the upcoming week for a local company to come in and replace our central air conditioning.

  1. Another fantastic card for a challenge that you nailed beautifully. Those frames are just wonderful with the blocks of colour. Great design and well worth the time you spent doing it.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I was working on my fine motor skills with all of the diecutting and gluing but I’m happy with the result. Thanks for your support.
