Use It Tuesday - Clear-Mount Blocks

So you already know how wonderful it is to use Clear Mount Stamps and their coordinating blocks right? They save money and save precious storage space while still providing the fantastic quality of images for which Stampin' Up! is known. Today, you'll also discover that there is another, new way to use your blocks.


Use your Clear-Mount blocks and your ink pad of choice to create a blocked image!

  • Simply press your block (Block C shown here) directly onto your ink pad. 
  • Tap it a few times for more ink coverage.
  • Then "stamp" your block directly to your paper.
 And of course, even with this you have a few options.

Lightly mist your block with water before stamping. 
The water will cause areas of the ink to "pool" and spread a bit providing you with a mottled image. (Bottom right block)

Repeat your block stamping to create a base for your background. This is layer 1 for the background for the card on the top left.


So are you ready? Go grab a block and show me what you can do!
Thanks for stopping by!
