Simon Says Stamp | Color Blocking Take Two – Clean & Modern

Hello, friends! I always try to keep an eye out for various new trends and one of the trends I’ve been seeing a lot of lately, mostly in fashion, is color blocking. If you follow my blog, you might remember this 4-color color blocked card with fruits I shared a few weeks ago and today I have another take on this trend.

CARD DETAILS

This card is nothing more than 2 colors of cardstock (3, if you count white base) and some Antique Gold heat embossing. It doesn’t get much simpler than this.

To make this card I cut colored cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 2″ strips and secured two strips, a pink and a yellow, together from the back. Next, using clear embossing ink, I stamped image of a pineapple and a coordinating sentiment, coated with Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp and heat set.

Using a solid sheet of fun foam I foam mounted the color blocked panel onto an A2 white side folding card base. I also stamped a small sub sentiment that reads “I Love You” (comes from Simon Says Stamp, unfortunately I don’t remember from which set exactly) and after foam mounting it onto my card I added several drops using new Dream Drops product from Tonic Studios.

Of course a design like this is not something that would appeal to everyone, but sometimes, in the middle of winter especially, a bright pop of color is all one needs to cheer them up!

    1. Love your colour choices for the card stocks Yana with the antique gold, it is beautiful.

    1. Can you explain a bit more about color blocking? The idea is intriguing, but I don’t really understand the concept. If you already explained it in a video or blog post and I somehow missed it, I apologize. I really like the pink and yellow together. Do the colors need to be the same hue? Hmmmm. Hope you’re having fun in China!!!
