Clearly Backgrounds

Our fabulous clear blocks are not only perfect for our clear-mount stamps, they are also great for creating backgrounds on your project!

On this card, I used Block G and rotated inking it in Old Olive, Pool Party, and Cherry Cobbler and then stamped the block on Whisper White Cardstock. This created the perfect background for my greeting from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set!

Do you ever want to use one of our cute images that are meant to be watercolored but don’t have the time to do it? Well one way to solve that problem is with a clear block! I simply inked Block B in Pool Party, stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock, and then stamped the image in Basic Black onto the Pool Party inked rectangle. This technique adds the perfect pop of color to my card and it was simple to create. By the way, the cute watercolor image is from the Wonderful Winterland Stamp Set in the holiday catalog. 

Now pull out your clear blocks and give this technique a try.
