MOd Squad Challenge - Stamp Your Block

Dear Ones~
This week it's my turn to host over at the Mod Squad Challenge. My challenge is to use an acrylic block to stamp a background. You can watch a video by Gina K HERE to see how it's done. 


Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.
Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world.


A $20 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store.

Here is my card:
For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set called Bold & Blooming, and the greeting is from the GKD Hello Beautiful stamp set. I stamped my acrylic block into GKD Tranquil Teal Ink, spritzed it with water, and then stamped on GKD White Card Stock. Then I used the GKD Amalgam Black Ink to stamp the flowers and greeting. That panel was then adhered to a piece of GKD Black Onyx Card Stock and then onto a GKD Tranquil Teal card base. The little button was made by punching out 4 half inch circles out of Tranquil Teal Card Stock, gluing them together and then coating the whole thing 3 times with clear embossing powder. I attached the ribbon and voilá.....a little handmade button.
 Glad you stopped by, and don't forget to head on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. You could win the prize! I can't wait to see your wonderful creations, and I adore your comments!
