Best of Everything, a new rubber stamp set from the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, offers simple, modern images and sentiments.  The Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper (also new) in the background and on the envelope keeps the look clean.

I have a new 1 Minute to "WOW" Video for you today with a quick tip on how to use a Blender Pen to "erase" ink.  Watch and learn!


  • Stampin up best of everything rubber stamp scallop circle punch 2 Stampin' Write Markers (Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz) allow me to color the leaves and trunk on the same rubber stamp two different colors. 
  • I used Paper Snips to pop out the small flowers.  They are anchored with Early Espresso (Neutrals) Brads and curled up a bit for dimension.
  • Lining an envelope with coordinating designer series paper is such a rich finish.

    1. It gives it such a pretty mother-of-pearl look to the card and makes it quite lovely. There were quite a few color layering techniques used on this card. First the stamping and watercoloring.

      i have the same problem, tried using q-tips then i tried my blender pens…they work great! hope that helps

    3. What a great card! Thank you for showcasing the Pocketful of Posies dsp; the catalog certainly does not do that set justice. Thanks for sharing the tip on erasing with the blender pen. What a great tool with all that it can do!

    4. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful idea–how clever of you and your cards are fantastic!

      Mary, This set and DSP are on my wishlist and soon than later after seeing your clean, crisp and sweet card. TFS

    6. I agree with Katy ~~ I passed over this set with my first order from the new catty. Leave it to Mary to make me think I need it on my 2nd order ;o)

    7. I use tape. It’s a little time consuming, but worth it. I stamp the section I DON’T want onto a piece of scoth tape. Cut that out & put it over the area, re-stamp, and peel off the tape. Then I’m ready to color in with markers of another color or leave blank. This also works with sentiments that I don’t want the whole thing ~ or atleast not in the same line. Hope this helps!

    8. I love this card! And for all the times I use my blender pend to apply color, I never thought to use them to remove color! What a great tip! Thanks Mary!

    9. I actually like designs that are related to pop-art. They always give a 3-D effect.

    10. Mary, you’ve done it again! This is absolutely brilliant – love the blender pen tip on “erasing” ink and creating a label for the back of the card. Love it!

    11. Another great use for the blender pens I love so much! Great WOW video and loved the card, as always.

    12. Stunning card and great idea!

    13. Who knew blender pens were so versatile?! I just love it. Thank you so much for sharing.

      HI Mary!
      I just loved your “Best of Everything” card, and the great video tip with the blender pen. The One Minute To Wow videos are just the greatest!! Thanks so much for doing this for all of us.

    15. Just learning about the blender pen. Thanks for the hot tip. I just love your quick videos.

    16. Great Tip! Thanks.

    17. Loved the tip! I enjoy your videos and cards, Mary. Thank you.

    18. Perfect Card! Wonderful DSP & stamp!

    19. Wow, love that tip! Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us! Beautiful card … love that color combo!

    20. Great tip! BTW, why haven’t you told us you were one of the top demos in the country? 🙂 Awesome achievement!

    21. What is the best way to remove excess ink from a stamp before stamping on paper?. For instance, when I ink my Four Frames stamps, there if often excess ink in the center where I want it clear. I have been dabbing it with a wet wipe. Is there any way to avoid getting the ink in the center. I have clear mount stamps and the SU! acrylic block.

      Love your tip and your card. I might have skipped over this stamp set in the catty but now will have to take another look. Thanks for the inspiration!
