Artists on the Block Blog Hop


Sizzix and Stencil Girl Products have teamed up! The next big thing since Artist Trading Cards!!!

Unlike Tags and ATC’s Artist trading blocks (ATB’s) allow you to create in 3-D! Why show only one side of your creativity when you can express yourself with multidimensional style? With Eileen Hull’s (soon to be released) Scoreboards Block dies you can showcase your creative side inside and out on an ATB! Check out The Artists on the Block website!

These are so unbelievably cool!!! I had so much fun creating an ‘Art Tool’ out of my block, with a focus on Color Theory. I used my Color Wheel Stencils and my ATC sized Face/Mask stencils to create a block based off of one of my workshops, “The Real hUe”.


On this side of the block I used my Journal Sense Vision 4×4 stencil and one of the Simple Color Wheel stencils. The fun thing here is the lines from the Vision stencil help link color combinations like, complementary, triad, split complementary, analogous and tetrads. Love it when things just happen to work like this!

On the inside of the box I put the Hue Tint Tone Shade color wheel to use and created mini one hue portraits using my ATC sized Face/Masks stencils.


And what would any Artist Trading Block need to finish it off but a signature block!



When you’re all done creating the whole thing folds up into a cute little cube. Really fun and I can’t wait until the die is available so I can make more!!

  2. I really love the way that you have used the colour wheel stencil on your block and the way that it all linked together. Decorating the inside of the block was an interesting idea too, a great surprise when the block is assembled and then reopened.

  3. Love seeing each artist’s signature voice in these blocks. I love, love, love Sarah’s idea of using the blocks like a mini journal. I’m going to hang on to that thought. I have two of your face stencils, Pam, and love them!

  4. OMG Pam! You Art Block is truly amazing. I can’t wait for the fabulous ATC block dies to be released & of course I will have to get one of your gorgeous ATC sized Face/Masks stencils to use right along side it.

  5. Totally, totally you Pam. These are so rich with color and style. I have to pull my nose back from the computer screen…just trying to see each little bit of detail! LOVE it!


  6. You definitely knocked this one out of the park, Pam!
    I was hoping you’d use your stencil designs on your ATB! I love, love, love your design!!!

  7. Pam- wow- you totally rocked the block here! There are are so many things I love about your style- color, form and composition- you have them all. I even got a tutorial on color theory, all on one little blcok! Just beautiful (and even better in person :-))! Thanks so much for coming out to play and hop!

  8. Oh my stars Pam for the love of color THIS is jaw dropping amazing! Your stenciling skills are unmatched! I feel like your vision stencil can see into my creative soul. Don’t even get me started on the INSIDe…wow! To top it off your signature side is such an inspiration…the whole project is undeniably inspiring inside and out!
