For the first card, stamp the sunflower in Bumblebee ink and the leaves in Old Olive ink, then layer the die cuts to create lovely depth and dimension. Sprinkle a few 2020–2022 In Color Enamel Dots for a little extra “pop.” Then stamp the sentiment in Magenta Madness and you have a happy card in minutes!
Step it up on the second card with more stamping and by sponging Cinnamon Cider and Old Olive ink on the images. Blend the colors on the cardstock with an Aqua Painter for a nice, even look.
For our fanciest stepped-up project, we spritzed a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box with water and Just Jade ink. Next, we embellished the box with lots of fun layers and floral details, including cheerful-looking sunflowers. We finished with a cute baker’s twine bow made using the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
It is so VERY PRETTY! Are you a sunflower fan? Crystal
|The new Classic Stampin’ Spots Assortment on page 147 of the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog is the perfect little ink collection for your stampers. With eight colors from Basic Gray to Granny Apple Green, the lovely array of colors hits the spot.|
|Here are some fun techniques to prove that some of the best things come in tiny packages.|
|Block Background: Use the spot as a stamp. Turn it over and apply it directly to the paper for the cutest card on the block. |
Tasteful Texture: To mimic the wood grain of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, swipe the spot across the stamps instead of pressing the stamp to the ink.
Layered Colors: Use the Stamparatus and apply the darkest colors around the edges of the image. Stamp. Then clean the stamp and apply a lighter color in the center. Stamp again to create the look of a multicolored markered image.
|Have fun and share with me! Crystal|

|Linda Bauwin reached her million sales achievement in March of 2016 and as part of her million sales celebration, she collaborated with one of our designers on the creation of the Half Full Stamp set we’re featuring this week.|
|This gorgeous set has a bit more to it than meets the eye. Linda’s beloved husband, Jay, passed away before this stamp set was completed. The year of their wedding, 1975, is included on one of the stamps, as a tribute to his love and support. A beautiful memento we can all appreciate!|
|On the 2017 incentive trip to Thailand Linda demonstrated her stamp set and showed a really creative technique where she mixed the Stampin’ Ink Refill with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create a beautiful glossy look that you can see on the Merry Christmas card above.|
