Blue Vase - Delft Tile Technique

Hello Friends,
It's great to be home and finally able to post again.  I am dying to get back into a creative mode, so hopefully I will be back with some more card challenges soon.
For today's post I have had a go at the Delft Tile Technique following a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers by Julie Warner.  I visited a couple of stamping friends in Perth for the day and this is one of the things we tried.  A very big thank you to Andrea and Jan for your hospitality, I had a fun time catching up with you both and swapping ideas.  We changed things a little from the directions to make it easier to sponge the squares.  I have scored the squares at 1 3/8" and used the 1 1/4" Square Punch to create a template out of acetate to sponge the inside of each square.  My finished card is an A5 in size.

Stamps: S/U's Elements of Style, Punch Potpourri, Afterthoughts (Hostess), Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 1
Card: Brilliant Blue (R), Whisper White, Glossy Card, Clear Acetate for Square Template
Ink: Brilliant Blue (R), Bashful Blue
Embellishments: Organdy Ribbon, Silver Pearls
Tools: Fiskars Cutting and Scoring Tool, Ornament Punch, 2 Step Bird Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Sponge Dauber, Brayer, Scissors, Dimensionals
Thank's for taking a look today, let me know if you like it.  Happy Stamping!

  1. Gorgeous Susan this technique is on my to do list too.

  2. This very much reminds me of the Delft Blue tiles and plates, well done!

  3. Fantastic Susan! I saw this too and was a little afraid to have a go. You have inspired me to give it a go now :-)


Thank you for your lovely comments.
