WOW! Video: Easy Coloring with Sponge Daubers

Click on the video above to watch!

I was WOW’d at the Stampin’ Up! On-Stage event last month when they demonstrated how quick and easy it is to use Sponge Daubers to color stamp images.  I love the soft finish and vintage look when Powder Pink is used to color Crumb Cake card stock.

My thank you card today offers a sneak peek of the charming Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  Both will be available when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins Jan. 3.  I’m confident this will be one of the TOP bundles of the Occasions Catalog (and one of My Favorite Things).  I love those brushstroke images and sentiments!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I inked the floral and leaf image from Petal Palette stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink and stamped on Crumb Cake Card Stock. 

  • Soft & simple.  I added Powder Pink ink to the flowers and Old Olive to the leaves with Sponge Daubers.
  • Images were cropped using the coordinating dies from Petals & More Thinlits Dies.
  • A Big Shot essential!  The Magnetic Platform helps keep the die in place over the stamped image during it’s trip through the Big Shot.
