The word “watercoloring” when using the Gift of Love Photopolymer stamp set is perhaps a bit of a stretch. As many of you know, I consider myself “watercoloring challenged!” However, when there’s an opportunity to create a gorgeous but ridiculously easy watercolored look, I’m all in. I’ll share a new WOW! video with you tomorrow to demonstrate how I “watercolored” this card and just how easy it was!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- My sketch for today’s card was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA300). It was designed by PPA team member, Sandra Conner. See what Sandra and the rest of the PPA Design Team have created with this sketch here.
- I inked up the new In Color, Flirty Flamingo, flowers. See my reveal of ALL the new 2016-2018 In Colors and how they compare to the rest of the Stampin’ Up! color collection here.
- The thank you sentiment was cropped with the new Duet Banner Punch.
- Part of the beauty of photopolymer stamps is that they have a little give. I rounded “thank you” from the Gift of Love Photopolymer Stamp Set on a clear block so that it would match the curve of the punch.
- Hands down my favorite way to store photopolymer stamps is by sliding the image sheet in the outside sleeve (between the thin outer plastic and the case) and adhering the stamps to the inside of the case. Watch my quick video for a closer look.
