Linda Marie’s Blocks Card

I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to paper crafting, “engineering” is not my strong suit.  Give me color and sketches over measuring any day!

However, I never cease to be amazed by those who can imagine paper in ways that I can only follow or admire.  My fellow stamper, Linda Marie, sent me her blocks card and has a video to share with you on how to give it a try.

I’m so glad she has worked out the details so that I can give it a try, too!  How about you?

  Have you checked out the Stampin’ Up! Photopolymer stamp sets?  They are translucent (love the see through quality for placement) and offer fantastic cling.
