Taylored Expressions Season of Crafting—Building Blocks!

Hi Friends! I’m back today sharing more Season of Crafting Inspiration and the star of the show: Building Blocks Sentiments. Today, I have three cards all using the ONE Building Block Sentiment Set—The Cool Additions Building Block Set! I love how you can get SO many sentiment combinations from one set of Building Blocks.

For both cards, I stamped the Cool Additions Building Block with VersaMark ink to Oreo Cardstock (being sure to apply the TE Anti-Static tool first), covered in TE White Fine Detail Embossing Powder and then used a heat tool to embossing the sentiments. Once the sentiments cooled down a bit, I used the Building Block Die to cut out all the word blocks.

For my first set of cards, I paired the Black & White Embossed Cool Additions Building Blocks with bright and cheerful rainbow horizontal and cool hues diagonal Easy Strips backgrounds. I love how the Black & White Embossed sentiments pop off of the colorful strips of cardstock. Especially with the clean and simple white background.

And for a little extra black and white pop I added black star embellishments from Halloween Stars & Sparkles bits and pieces. This is such a fun and simple way to create several everyday occasion clean and simple cards with big impact.

For my third card, I paired the Black & White Embossed BIRTHDAY building block from the Cool Additions set with the On the Block HAPPY Stamp + Die Cut. To created the bright star background, I stretched the Spooky Nights Layering Stencil from Halloween to Birthday with a rainbow ink palette of Plum Punch, Lollipop, Fruit Punch, Pineapple, Cookie Monster and Jelly Donut. Love giving my supplies a color workout! Using my MISTI, I stamped HAPPY twice with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and die cut using the Happy Shadow Coordinating Die. To finish the card, I adhered an Oreo A2 Thin Frame and adhered the decorated panel to Sugar Cube (White) cardbase.

So there we are three bright and happy cards using the Cool Additions Building Blocks & Building Block Dies.
