  • My Stampin’ Up! Color Coach set the stage for a color combination of Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Cajun Craze.
  • I tucked a Mini Glue Dot behind the ribbon knot to keep it in place.
  • This little block stamp from Fresh Vintage is “just the thing” for this design.  Get Fresh Vintage FREE (and exclusively) during Sale-A-Bration.
  • The Stampin’ Up! 1″ Square Punch and Postage Stamp Punch cropped the stamp and blocked pattern to perfection.
  • KEEPING IT STRAIGHT:  I layered the first block on the top corner of a separate piece of Whisper White card stock.  I then used the little grooves to line up additional blocks, working left and down.  I carefully lined up and cropped off the excess.

    Love, love, love this idea….and you could do it with so many different sets! And, I’m following you on Pinterest now!

  7. I’m going to have to chime in on the “video demonstrate” request as to how you lined up the blocking of the postage stamps. I really like this card! It’s very clean and simple, yet classic in style. 🙂

    Loving this, so colorful!

  9. Love it, just got that punch. Can’t wait to use it.

  10. Mary – I love your card, everything about it! Your work is impeccable. I too would love it if you could demonstrate on a video how you got the squares so straight. Seeing is understanding for me. Also, what does CASE stand for?

  12. Mary – getting all those blocks lined up always stumps me no matter how hard I work at it. Could you make a video and demonstrate? I didn’t quite get the description of what you did. After following your blog, I know you have a shortcut or good method to use. Thanks

  14. Seriously MY KIND OF CARD Mary. I love this set and will CASE this card. Thanks for sharing Girlfriend!

  15. I LOVE your card. The color blocking provides a colorful presentation. This is my favorite set right now – can’t stamp without it!

  16. My Fresh Vintage stamps are in an order that has just shipped. I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

  17. I love that stamp set, but haven’t used it yet. Now I’m ready to roll. Color combos might be endless with all the Stampin’ Up choices, but I do love yours.
