I finally had the chance to “Rock the Block” with the collage cubes and stamp set from Close to My Heart – the combination is a sneak peek special this month and I’m excited to show you the amazing transformation from drab to fab. You’ll be AMAZED at the artwork YOU can create with these cubes and the great stamp set that comes with them!
So here’s how the set looks when you receive it (included you’ll find 9 blocks, measuring 2″ x 2″ each, a tray to hold them all, and a HUGE stamp set, the size of 8.5″ x 11″ paper):
The hardest part for me was picking a “theme.” I decided that instead of having a theme of photos or events, I would create unity through my paper and colour selection. I chose to use papers and cardstock from the Typeset collection. I love the CTMH collections – everything coordinates so well!
Once I decided on what photos I wanted to use, I got to work matching up the stamps, photos, and various cuts from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
Here’s what I came up with:
The neat thing about side 6 is that it can also sit lengthwise across a table or shelf:
I wanted to show you a little about how I made side 5. I used the cricut cartridge Word Collage to cut out a stencil and then used sponge daubers to ink the negetive spaces. Here are some photos of this process:
– Collage Cubes
– Rock the Block exclusive stamp set
– Trinity Alphabet stamp set
– Bonding Memories Glue Pen
– Typset Workshops on the Go Kit
– Exclusive Inks: Bamboo, Cocoa, Juniper, Tulip
– Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
– Word Collage Cricut Cartridge
