Tuesday's Tip Video - Acrylic Block Stamping and High Tide Cards

Hey there everyone! Here we are...Tuesday again and I have another video for you! I'm working out the kinks and things are coming along pretty well! I'm SUPER EXCITED that I'm able to make my videos and have another way to share what I love to do with you!
Today's video will teach you how to make these BEAUTIFUL backgrounds with your acrylic blocks! It's really easy, quick and FUN! You'll want to make lots of cards and even scrapbook pages using this technique! 
So...what did you think?  Are you ready to try it?!?! I hope you will! Here are a couple of cards I created using this technique!
Here's a photo of the background shown in the video...you can see where I missed inking and spritzing in the top left and right corners! That's okay though...and you can see why in the next photo!
For the next step, I used my markers to color the sand stamp from the High Tide stamp set.  I used Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie ink on the top and Crumb Cake on the bottom for a beach look! I also used Memento Black ink to stamp some grass and bird silhouettes!

For the final card I added two chairs cut with my Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I cut them in Basic Black for the silhouette effect! The Side by Side sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  It's perfect for my anniversary card to my husband!  We celebrate 28 years on Saturday!
Here is another card that I made using the same technique!  This cards sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. I was inspired to make this card by a card challenge on my team Facebook page.  Our fearless leader shared swap cards from her earned trip to Thailand and challenged us to use one of these swap cards, CASE it (copy and share everything) and create our own card!
Here is the card I chose as my inspiration! Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?  Sadly, I have know idea who created it so I cannot give credit where credit is due!! 
Well...that's it for today!  I hope you now have the bug to get out there and create...to try something new and just have FUN....creating! Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and allowing my to share my video, my cards and my inspiration!
