More creations with Rock the Block...

I started by stamping with Grey Flannel and Tulip inks onto Colonial White cardstock to create the background words using the "FUN" and "LOVE" stamps from the Rock the Block set. 

I wanted these cards to have a masculine feel to them.






I added the flourish swirl in Black ink.

Then I simply added a strip of Black cardstock and Juniper ribbon, and added a few light blue Sparkles to the swirls.


So easy, but I love how they look!


So much in fact that I kept playing...


Using some different stamp images from the same Rock the Block set, I then created a set of 4 more cards, and made a box to hold them, too. 

{Note that the sentiment "Simply the Best" is from a different set - Dreamin' WOTG.}








On the cards, I added Clear Sparkles and Black Licorice Opaques.






{Instructions for the Flip Top Box were found here.}



Kinda cute, huh?



Remember, this E-sized set is available only until the end of January.  With a minimum $25 purchase from the Fall/Winter 2011 Idea Book, you can get the Rock the Block set and the Collage Cubes for just $15.00.











Happy creating!  :)
