BIG DAY today!!!
Before sharing all the big Stampin UP news, I wanted to share with you a super easy card I made today. It's from a set called A HAPPY HEART from the Holiday Mini Catalog (link below)which is now available starting today. Although it's part of a Valentine's set, I used it to tell DH that I love him. <3 <3 It's our anniversary this week <3 <3
WHAT I USED:
Cardstock- Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Ink- Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Versamark
Accessories- 3/4 in and 1/2 in circle punches, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 Way Glue Pen
HANDY DANDY TIP OF THE DAY- If you want to emboss, but only have a Classic Ink Pad, you can first ink your stamp in Versamark and then immediately onto a Classic Pad, then finally onto paper. Just make sure you do it in that order (don't want to ink in colored classic and then put that stamp into your clear Versamark, might make you cry on your cardstock!). Just remember, clear Versamark, then colored ink, then onto paper. This works AWESOME for all the IN COLORS that are only available in the Classic style inks!

Also, for a limited time only, you can purchase a large aqua painter for only $7.25. These are soo awesome for watercoloring! Just take a Stampin' UP ink pad, give it a squeeze in the middle. Open the case up, and ink will be on the lid. With that lid as a palette, use your aqua painter to pick up some of the color and start coloring your image. The aqua painter perfectly controls the flow of water, allowing you to shade your images. When you want to change colors, lighltly put pressure on your aqua painter to release a small flow of water and wipe your aquapainter on a towel. It's soo clean and simple!! It's a great way to use your inks to water color! And you don't have to worry about knocking a glass of water all over and making a mess!
