Isn't this a pretty card? Want to learn how to create one just like it? It's called the Color Blocking Technique and requires only a few layers of Whisper White Cardstock and lots of ink colors. Let me teach you how to do this!

You can either watch my video at the end of my post, or follow the simple steps below!

Supplies Needed:
  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Inks: Melon Mambo, Purple Posy, Pineapple Punch, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Mango Melody, Balmy Blue, VersaMark
  • Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Noble Peacock Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Sponge Daubers, Story Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Card Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: This is where all of the magic happens. Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Stamp the magnolia image in the center using VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and melt the powder with the Heat Tool. Cut the cardstock layer into 4 panels by using a Paper Trimmer to cut on the 4" side at 2". Cut both strips again at 2-5/8". 
  • Sponging: Add two sponged ink colors to each panel and blend the two colors where they meet. You can use any combination of the eight inks I listed or use your own color choice. 
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". Glue the four panels to this layer as a backing. Make sure the four panels line up perfectly. Glue to card front.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Melon Mambo Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Cut with the Story Label Punch and glue to the center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Add the Noble Peacock Rhinestone Jewels to the background, matching up the rhinestone colors to the ink colors.
