Question What is color blocking? And trying to identify these stamps

Hi everyone, I came across this card on Pinterest which linked back here to this stunning card: Colorblocked Train by Miss Minx - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers and I am totally confused about what a color blocking stamp is and how it was used to make this card. Can someone please help?

My 2nd question is does anyone know which stamp for the main image image belongs to Papertrey Ink and which stamp belongs to Stamp It? I looked at an online stamp catalogue for both the train and sentiment stamp at Stamp It and couldn't find it nor at Papertrey Ink. Checked out Google too and came up with nothing

Color blocking was big several years ago. Divide your space into squares and rectangles and use a different color in each one. Attached is a sample.
Sorry, can't help with the stamp hunt.

I'm just guessing - but I think the stamp by Stamp It is what she used to make the squares and rectangles... Does that make sense?

I don't think stamps were used to make her rectangles...they look like DSP to me.

Color blocking is basically just dividing your card up and using different colors in each portion. It's also popular in fashion right now. If you look in the stores you'll see a lot of dresses that are color blocked. Usually they are a bright color on top (or two) and then have black like around the bottom. Just an example.

I am still not understanding what a "color blocking stamp" is Like Minders said, it looks like DSP. Unless maybe the stamp is the outline portion? Maybe she put outlined squares or rectangles or whatever and then filled them in with the DSP? So the outline would be the "block"? I don't know, just guessing.

Oh, and I found the train I think. Looks the same to me other than it faces the other direction...

Sorry, that wasn't clear - I meant that it was a stamp that made the blocks - where you would stamp it on each of the DSPs and the background (the white) then paper piece the DSP on the white. The only stamp I can find that is similar is in this set from Gina K - Inspriation Mosaic. Does that help my explanation at all? I'm sorry, I speak English, I just can't type it!

Hmmm....I thought this was color blocking. Using stamps to stamp blocks/shapes.

here is a search from the gallery

colorblocking - Homemade Cards, Rubber Stamp Art, & Paper Crafts - Splitcoaststampers.com


As I recall Colorblocking hit big around 2006 because I remember looking all over for templates in different sizes for cards and ended up mail ordering them. Then ended up having headaches using them because they were so small and difficult to use I ended up selling them!

Since this is from an active user on SCS, have you tried PMing her to see if she can answer your questions about this specific card?

I don't recognize any of those stamps as belonging to PTI. Positive it's not the train, tried looking for the sentiment and do not see it.

I bought some stamps from a lady on craigslist and it included these huge stamps that had what I would call windows on it... It looks exactly the layout of the card you showed.. If you were doing DP you could just eyeball it.. When the lady showed me the stamp she explained to me how it worked with other stamps and even gave me some tutorial sheets I think .. Need to dig out.. But somehow I think she used masking with it.

I'd love more details, if you are able. Who makes the stamps? This sounds vaguely familiar, but the stamp store that I remember seeing them in went out of business.

The quote on that card is from Papertrey Ink. It's in the "Through the Trees" set.

I guess you could stamp it and then fill it with the paper,, OR you could stamp it then mask off the borders and then get a big stamp or stamp a little one several times and then pull up your masking and wa-la windows.. I may try this later, if I do I will post.

Me too!
15-20 years ago Hero Arts had a set of stamps that did just that, stamped plain blocks of colors. There were several different shapes and sizes and they were called Shadow stamping I think. They even sold very pale inks so that you could then stamp images over top.

I have a 9 square block stamp from that company. They closed their retail store some years ago and went online only. As best I can tell, they no longer carry their line of stamps. I always wanted to purchase more of them.

Thanks for letting me know. The search function on Papertrey Ink when you are looking for specific stamp as opposed to the name of the stamp set is a little frustrating and going through each set individaully to see if you can find it, is so tedious. Appreciate your help

Thanks everyone for your replies - I am going through all your posts to see if I can nut this out. I haven't contacted the original cardmaker yet as I guess I was really wanting to know colour blocking actually was and I thought the rectangles surrounding the image looked like designer paper too which just had the edges inked up - hence my confusion - and I remembered in the last year looking up a tutorial by Beate here at SCS where she had inked up an acrylic block with Distress Ink, sprayed it with a little water, then stamped it on her cardstock and stamped her main image on the top. Made the 'block' of colour look soft and muted - so totally different to this card.

The more recent cards in the colorblock gallery are what used to be called shadow stamps. Hero Arts started that years ago with a whole line of various shapes and sizes. I would not call that colorblocking. I have a few of those colorblock stamps as well...all I can remember is that they came from a gal in Florida; don't know if she's still in business. Rectangles, squares, even triangles, which were really fun.

I've never used any of the "shadow stamps" but the Hero Arts Shadow Inks are FABULOUS! They dry beautifully smooth when you use bold stamps.

Ali Edwards indicates on her blog that Expressions in Ink carries this line of block stamps. Glad to know that they are still available. Hmm, may have to order some.

I have been involved with stamping since about 2003. I have NEVER seen those stamps that create the outline images for a color blocked card! NEVER! I just assumed people cut the shapes out of DP or solid card stock and arranged them however they wanted. Never knew anyone made stamps to create a template to follow.

So, I'm thinking the stamps listed by the maker of the card the OP referred to go like this. The "Stamp It" stamp is obviously one of the template stamps to give the outlines of where to put the blocks of color, as pictured in post #19 above by stampintwinkie. The Papertrey stamp is the sentiment from the Through the Trees set as posted in #17 by turki. Is it possible the train image is actually just part of the Designer paper used?

Check out this link at My Mind's Eye. http://www.mymindseye.com/LF2/LF2.asp
scroll down until you get to the collection that says "lost and found 2 * breeze *precious.
I see a paper with a train and swirls facing the right direction.

Wow, that's an excellent eye, Mary. You're right as to the paper!!!!

I ordered a couple of the stamps, so hopefully I"ll get them. I did get some of the tape, too, but still don't know how to use it exactly. I"m hoping it'll be clear when I go to try it all out. What an impulse buy, huh? LOL!

Thanks everyone for your input - I really appreciate it. So, do you stamp the stamp block onto cardstock and then cut the designer paper to fit the grids? Or do you stamp the stamp block - in the case of the card that I originally linked - onto designer paper then cut the rectangles out? So if it was a case of the latter, you would stamp it on 4 different designer papers? Am I making sense?

Well, I played with the one that I had in my stash, three rectangles, and I stamped on the background paper, then cut out the squares of designer paper to fit in the rectangles. But, you could do it either way I think, if you don't trust yourself cutting your paper to fit exactly. The blocks seem pretty big, so I think you could just flip the stamp on its back to add ink to only the square that you're doing, in order to minimize paper waste. Or, you could stamp your block on different papers, cut everything out, then make several different cards all at once. I do not know how to mask the squares yet, and am hoping for inspiration once I get my supplies. ;0)
