STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Lovin’ it!  The new Stampin’ Up! Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad (also available in Basic Gray) is a crisp, dark ink that dries quickly (even on Whisper White).  It’s well suited for watercoloring, too!  Available Sept. 1.

  • Got 30 seconds?  I added a touch of Bermuda Bay ink to my Aqua Painter and dabbed it quickly on the leaves for a colorful, artsy look!
  • The “grateful” sentiment is from Acorny Thank You.  I propped up the sentiment strip on Stampin’ Dimensionals to further enhance the white on white design.

  • The final polish is Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine threaded through a Basic Black button (Neutrals Designer Buttons).
