The featured Block Printing Set this fortnight is our Trees & Leaves Set! This wonderful kit contains a mixture of 7 wooden printing blocks, the set is normally for sale on our website for £40.50 but for 2 weeks starting from the 27/05/16 to the 10/06/16 you can purchase this kit for only £35.50 despite being worth £50.50 if you brought all the designs separately! ( Such a bargain)
We thought we would show examples of cards and envelopes with various blocks from the set! The large Spring Tree fits perfectly in the centre of the card, and looks great printed in different colours! These are just plain brown square craft cards I brought from my local craft shop, we also sell packs of plain cards and gift tags on our website. I actually used fabric paints on these cards, I went with Terracotta, Brilliant Blue, Red and Grass Green, but you can also use poster paints and acrylics when printing onto paper or card!
Hand printed matching envelopes with different blocks from the set. The smaller blocks are the perfect size for hand printing your own gift tags !
I also LOVE these Tea Towels which we printed using the printing blocks from the set! The first fabric Tea Towel is printed in Olive Brown Fabric paint and the second one is printed in Olive Green Fabric paint! I started off by printing the largest block randomly all over the tea towel first which is the Spring Tree and then used all the other blocks to fill in the white space! I love just using one colour for printing, I think it looks so effective, I can really imagine a set of 4 tea towels all using the same blocks but 4 different colours!
Here I am using the small dotty tree for a funky pink and turquoise Tea Towel!
