Clear Block Stamping Instructions

As promised, the Step by Step Instructions for the Clear Block Stamping are quite easy.  You just have to remember to use a light touch when touching the Clear Block A to the Stamp Pad; otherwise, you will have much darker colors.

The pictures taken below do not match the finished card because I forgot to take the pictures as I was doing it.   But you will get the idea.

I wanted to use the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper because the colors used to create this beautiful paper reminded me of what I saw in my vision of my card.

The Stampin’ UP! Stamp Pads that I had scattered around my workplace are: Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Sahara Sand.

Gathering the Ink Pads You Want to use

When applying the inked (with Marina Mist) Clear Block to your Whisper White Cardstock, use a circular motion.  Sometimes, your hand forgets to move and you end up with an image of the clear block.

Using a Circular Motion applying the ink

Each image you apply will be different.  Since the clear block doesn’t hold a lot of ink, you will need to repeat the motion in the various areas that you want the blue.

I added a bit of Soft Sky into the Marina Mist design.

Adding dabs of Soft Sky Ink

Knowing that I was going to add more greens, I just added a a touch of Old Olive.   Notice that I didn’t move my hand quick enough and I have a square image on the cardstock.

Adding the Beautiful Fall Colors

Adding in Soft Suede, but after I added it, I realized it was too dark for my card.  That is the main reason why the dirt is a lot lighter on the Finished Product.

The Finishing Touches

In the finished product, I decided not to use the Soft Suede.   Instead, I used the Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand.  I also used Crushed Curry in the leaves.

Enjoy before the Winter arrives.

As you can see from all the ink applied, different shapes form.  I would love to see your creations.
