[Technique] Color Blocking with Layering Marble by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video to share! This week I’m having some fun with design by playing with blocks of color and pattern to create 3 color blocking inspired cards. Using the Layering Marble Stamp Set, I created beautiful marble pattern paper and paired it with rich colored cardstock and a simple color blocking technique to make create 3 quick and easy cards.

First, I cut 5 A2 (4.25 x 5.5) panels of 65lb white cardstock,1 A2 panel of 65lb dark grey cardstock, and 1 A2 panel of 65lb teal cardstock. Next, using the Layering Marble Stamp Set, I created a marble background on one of the white panels using Like a Pro Dye Ink for the first layer, Tsukineko Brilliance Lightning Black of the second layer, and Memento Tuxedo black for the final layer. I then created my color blocking template by dividing one of the white panels up into 3 triangle sections with a ruler and then cutting the sections out with a paper trimmer.

Then by tracing the triangles from the template, I transferred the triangle design onto the marble, teal and gray panel. Next, I cut out all the triangles from the 3 panels using a paper trimmer. Then, using the template as a guide, I constructed 3 mixed panels by incorporating one section from each one of the colored/patterned panels.

Once I had my panels constructed, I adhered each one down on the remaining 3 white panel with liquid adhesive. I then adhered these mixed panels onto 3 top-folding white 110lb cardbase. Next, I diecut Congrats, Celebrate, and Perfect from gold foil cardstock and white craft foam using the Congrats, Celebrate, and Perfect Word Dies.

I then adhered the gold sentiments onto the corresponding foam sentiment with liquid adhesive. I then stamped and gold embossed additional sentiments from the Congrats and Little Mermaids Stamp Sets on each of the cards. Lastly, I adhered the dimensional gold sentiments with liquid adhesive to each card.

I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
