love is in the air and a little something to share…

It’s been so busy the past week that I totally missed out on the latest Scrapblock release. I love scrapblocks as they are super huge background stamps that can be used for so many things. Altered projects, layouts and others but I especially love using them on cards as you can change the orientation easily. No longer are you stuck with a vertical background stamp, especially when using words. I designed the love sentiments with baby and family pages as well as wedding and valentine themes in mind so that you could get the most mileage from this stamp. The Love Scrapblock is available from Cornish Heritage Farms and soon to be at Ellen Hutson LLC.

Love Scrapblock


I love stamping on kraft…you know I do. Text always looks great stamp monochromatically as well a myriad of different ways. For this design the words support the theme of the card.



Supply List: On the Desk (The Rummage Bin line) & Love Scrapblock by Cornish Heritage Farms, Kraft cardstock by Bazzill Basics, 6×6 Petite Papers by  Webster’s Pages, Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by Tsukineko, Tim Holtz Mini Attacher, burlap and flower by Prima Marketing, ribbon by Making Memories

While I love layered collage style cards, I also love clean and simple too. The card is fun as the scrapblock has been stamped with Watermelon Adirondack Pigment ink onto cardboard. Just in case you’ve ever wanted some custom printed cardboard. 🙂 I roughed up the edges a little and peeled back the top layer to peek at the corrugated one in places. I thought this would make a great guy card.

And now for the something to share…


I thought someone might like to stamp their way into the new year. These two scrapblocks are 6×6 inches square and can be used without an acrylic block. I usually just lay mine face up on my work surface, ink and then press the paper onto the rubber.  To enter, please leave a comment on this post between now and 8 am EST December 24th. I’ll be randomly drawing one winner from comments to mail this rubber to. Please leave only one comment. Thanks and good luck!
