Clear Acrylic Block Stamping

This is a sweet and simple card which uses the Clear-Mount Block-E (3-7/16" x 4-7/16") by Stampin'Up!
I placed the Crumb Cake stamp pad directly on the clear block, making sure to rub it around to get an even coating of ink on the clear block and then stamped it directly on the Vanilla card front. I then masked off the edges of the solid stamped area with post-it notes and stamped the script from French Foliage set using Peach ink stamped off first. This gave just a hint of color to the background but no more then that! I stamped the bench (Have a Seat set) with Espresso ink and the greeting and foliage (Pocket Silhouettes set) with Basic Black ink! The little pot is cut from Deck the Halls DS paper which was handy! LOL- I cut around the swirl in the design and placed it on the bench with dimensionals when I was happy with the size! The panel is framed on Soft Suede base card complete with Vanilla Taffeta ribbon and Basic Brads for the Modern Label greeting!
