Colour Blocking with Card Stock

Thanks for stopping by again today. The first Thursday of the month the Simple Stamping Techniques Design Team have a blog hop. Today’s we’re sharing Colour Blocking with Card Stock. Hop along and be inspired by all the projects shared by the Design Team. It’s an easy technique and well worth a try.

I must admit I haven’t tried this technique before. It worked!! First time!! I used:

I used the following colours for my colour blocking:

Colour Blocking with Card Stock

Use a sheet of Whisper White A4 Card Stock cut to the approximate size of your card front.

Cut the colours of card stock you require. I cut 3 x 3.7 cm and 1 x 3.8 cm or 4 x 1 3/8″

Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to adhere these to the Whisper White A4 Card Stock

Trim to size. I trimmed it to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″

Die cut a shape from the colour blocked piece. I used the largest sailing boat from the Smooth Sailing Dies which are part of the Sailing Home Bundle

I then adhered the piece to my Basic Gray A4 Card Stock card base which measured 21 cm x 14.9 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Score and fold the card base at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″

Keep the boat to use for another card or to finish off the card insert

Add Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the boat and make sure the little ‘sail’ piece which looks like a back the front ‘L’ has adhered too

Insert the sailing boat where the die cut came out of the colour blocking.

Use Night Of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp on the Whisper White C6 Envelopes

Adhere the colour blocked sailing boat to the card insert of Sparkle Glimmer Paper cut to 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″

Adhere the anchor to the card front using Glue Dots. Loop the Night Of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine through the hole in the anchor and tie an overhand knot. Then twist the Night Of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine and adhere in place using a Glue Dots under the knot.
