quick and easy with color block mini...

 Hello my fabulous friends!

Today I'm looking at the new Color Block Mini Squares set from Spellbinders.  I'm keeping things pretty simple with today's Color Block project, because we all have those times when we need a quick card (without it looking like a quick card!).

Let's take a closer look!

Please note, while Spellbinders did send me product and ask me to create with it, my opinions remain my own.  

Paper: Canson Watercolor paper, Decofoil Flocked paper, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Dies: Spellbinders Color Block Mini Squares
Hot Foil Plate: Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments
Foil: Spellbinders Aura
Color: Daniel Smith Watercolors
Other: gems

I started by making some quick watercolored papers in both green and blue. You could just use colored cardstock, but I like the variation and imperfections of the watercolor backgrounds, and I usually have some laying around my studio from random color tests, swatches, or other projects. 

After die cutting the lined die, I separated all my squares and started playing with how I wanted to arrange them. I ended up keeping it very clean and simple. 

Once the arrangement was figured out, I glued down my squares, added some gems, and a sentiment. Nice and quick!  And, I have lots of squares left over to make more quick cards!

I did a little hot foiling for my sentiment. I love the look of hot foiling on flocked paper (especially gold on dark flock)! It looks so fancy, but is super easy to do! Flocked paper isn't a super common paper right now..  I have some in my stash from 10 years ago, but Decofoil and Doodlebugs both have flock paper options currently.

I'm not done playing with these dies, so stay tuned!

See you soon!
