Acrylic Block Stamping with Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouette

The Stampin' Up!  acrylic blocks are fantastic as a background stamp - what I hear you say! simply get a block, ink with an ink pad or Stampin' Up! Marker and use it as a stamp, but be sure to have it on a paper piercing mat or a couple of layers of paper - I like to crumple the paper for added effect!  Then simply stamp your image over the block stamped area - it is suggested that the block stamping is done in a lighter colour to complement your focus image.  Yes it is that easy!

I love this background so much I delivered a class on the technique.  How you ask? Literally ink your Stampin' Up! acrylic block and stamp the block on your card.  used textures under your card to create different effects!   This is what I created using Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouette set...

Mother's Day, Birthday, thank you or even a Get Well card, this is an easy technique and versatile layout that can be enhanced with layers - Beautiful Baroque was used to emboss the Crumb Cake layer which compliments the Acrylic block stamping in Wisteria Wonder.
