Colour Block Pop!

Hey everybody! Happy weekend! It's Taheerah here with a post-release pick-me-up!

Colour Blocking is a great way to add bold blocks of colour to a project. This fashion trend is easy to tailor to masculine or feminine cards, and can totally change to fit the mood or recipient too!

For my card today I really wanted some bright, fun colours in a striped arrangement. Enter some of my favourite sets - On The Strip 2, Across The Card and even a touch of Santa's Tags too!

I love how bright and happy this is!!

I absolutely *love* using the reverse of strip stamps - it instantly doubles your options and widths! I stamped the reverse of the largest strip from On The Strip 2 some bold bright inks from Hero Arts - in fact I even double-stamped the teal and the pink for a bolder colour pop!

I interspersed this with thinner yellow and aqua lines, pulling out the shorter line stamp from Santa's Tags to give the desired width! The (true) side of one of the thinner lines from On The Strip 2 provided that bold pop of fuchsia!

All that done, it was time to add a sentiment. What better stamp to go with a colour block look than one of the strips from Across The Card? This married perfectly with the striped look and provided a great contrast to break up the colours!

Just one last, quick note! I run a weekly challenge on my own blog called Cure For The Monday Blues. The inspiration photo this week is full of magnificent pops of colour and even some colour blocking close to this card, totally by coincidence! I'd love it if you submitted an entry for it. The current challenge ends tomorrow at 5pm EST!

I hope this card brought some sunshine to your day! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. An eye-catching, colourful, oh-so-pretty card!, and what a clever way to get added versatility from your stamps in using the reverse side. Fabulous!

  2. Great color blocking...I forget about the backside of stamps can be used...need to try that. Super job on your card.
