Stampin' Write Markers coordinate with all our current inks and card stock.  I love using them directly to the rubber stamp to create multi-color images.  Today's 1 Minute to  "WOW "  Video Tutorial shares how fun and easy this can be.  OK, it's several minutes long . . . I just get so excited talking about Stampin' Up! I lose track of time 🙂



  • Stampin up pals paper arts video tutorial pocket silhouettes I dry embossed Basic Black card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and a Big Shot.  Punches were used to form the vase and bowl.
  • Click here for my 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial on creating the vase. 
  • The 1 3/8" Circle Punch cropped the circle for the bowl. It was cut it in half. The little piece I snipped from the oval vase (either top or bottom) works as the bowl base.
  • The "oranges" were popped out using the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
  • The modern inspiration for my colors and style were swooped from a page from a Design Within Reach catalog.
