Imagine the Possibilities Card

This is another one of the cards that I designed to swap at convention.  The inspiration came from a card that my friend, Marilyn, made using the clear blocks to stamp the background.  I loved that idea and had to play with it.

I stamped with the butterfly from Simple Friendship and the sentiment from Word Play with Rich Razzleberry ink.  Then I stamped the rectangles with Baja Breeze.  You are using the clear blocks that are normally used to hold the clear mount stamps.  In this case, you are using the clear block by itself.  For the Baja Breeze rectangles, I used Block B.

I used Block  A to add the Certainly Celery squares.  Then I used the flower and Old Olive ink to finish the background stamping.

After that, I added the Old Olive 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon and Rich Razzleberry card  stock.  The card body is Baja Breeze card stock stamped with the Texture jumbo roller. 

This ended up being a quick card to make and a fun new way to use the clear blocks.

Creatively yours,

I swapped this card with you at Convention and was just looking through my swaps for ideas I can use at upcoming classes, workshops and club meetings - my club is going to LOVE this!! I can't wait to share with them this oh so clever idea! In fact, we have a downline meeting next week and I am going to demo it to my stamping grou too. Thanks for swapping such an awesome card with me!
