Inky Artist Trading Blocks Tutorial

Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing a step-by-step tutorial on the Sizzix blog, for four Inky Photo Artist Trading Blocks.
These were made with Eileen Hull's 3-D Blocks/Cubes and 3-D Block/Cube/Bank dies, which are such fun dies with so many possibilities. Since each block has six sides there is plenty of space to decorate. I used some of my favourite family photos, both old and new, and some of my favourite Tim Holtz sentiment stamps. Each block has two photos and two sentiment stamps. The techniques in the tutorial can be used on all kinds of projects.

To see how I made these and to see all the sides of the blocks, head over to the Sizzix blog.

Thank you for stopping by!
