Hanger Using Bold Block Stamps

“Bold Block – Heron”, “Bold Block – Sailboat” and “Bold Block – Sea Gulls” are stamped on both sides of 1 1/4″ wood squares (available at craft stores) with Blue Crafter’s ink and heat set. Images are colored with pencils. A silver Krylon Leafing pen is used to edge each piece. A silver eye pin is screwed in the tops and bottoms of each wood piece. The wood pieces are finished with a matte or glossy sealing spray when they are completely dry. Beads are strung using silver thread and the ends of the thread are tied to jump rings. The jump rings are attached to the eye pins except for the top jump ring which is attached to a large silver ring. In this case a key chain ring was used. Hanger is by Wendy Kerr.

Animals and Blazing Sun Blocks

“Bold Block – Celestial Bunny”, “Bold Block –  Heron”, “Bold Block – Blazing Sun”, “Bold Block – Rooster” and “Bold Block – Hummingbird” are stamped on glossy card stock using a black Memories ink pad and cut out. The background is made by stamping white glossy card stock three times in different colors with a scrap of rubber left over from trimming an unmounted stamp. The scrap is inked using a couple of drops of a chalk stamp pad re-inker on a cosmetic wedge. The rectangles are direct to paper small dye stamp pads. The blocks are attached in the pattern shown above. The glossy card stock is layered on steel blue grey card stock and a black line is drawn around the white glossy card stock. Card by Thalia Sledge.
