"Merry Christmas" Blocks

Here's a fun little project I put together in a snap!  I used some pre-cut wooden blocks from my local craft store and died them with a solution of classic re-inker and alcohol.  The blocks sucked the ink solution right up, held the color beautifully and dried in a snap!  I used Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Soft Suede as my color scheme.

I stamped my letters (Broadsheet Alphabet) in Versamark and embossed them in gold stampin emboss powder.  This is such a beautiful font for vintage Christmas items!


  1. Love your vintage look! Thanks for telling us how to do it too! Also, thanks for saying "Merry Christmas" rather than some other, less meaningful greeting. I think I am going to have to put that alphabet set on my list!!

  2. I love this project!! So very, very festive and pretty. Also, you make it sound so easy... I am hoping so as I think I am going to get this alphabet stamp and try my hand!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
