Here’s a fun project that I shared this past Friday night at our Demonstrator Meeting in Champaign, Illinois.
I love this 2 step builder stamp set with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons (see them online). Have you used these before? Be sure to check out my “Three in One” Video Tutorial (see it now) on how to use the crayons.
The greeting on this set is from the new Sassy Salutations stamp set (see it online). The font is a fun style that matches a wide variety of stamp images.
The little Scallop Square Treat is a fun project — watch for a Video Tutorial on my blog later this week. I’ll show you how to make at home!
Looking for more Watercolor Wonder Crayon techniques and ideas? Here are some other projects on my blog!
Either way, don’t miss this sweet stamp set, available only during July! (order now)
Poppin’ Pastels is an OLD technique – and very simple:
- Stamp in Versamark ink
- Swirl a Sponge Dauber in a Stampin’ Pastel color
- Pounce onto the stamped image.
It always used to bother me that the edges of the stamped image ended up a little bit wishy washy. I’m embarrassed to say that when I pulled out my Stampin Pastels (see them online) for this project, they were still sealed! I used to use them all the time, but somehow my new set had at least 2 birthdays before getting opened. (eek!)
But with this NEW twist on Poppin’ Pastels, I think I’m going to be seeing my Pastels much more regularly again. By adding the Rock N Roll technique, I made the edges of the image well-defined and the finished image looks much cleaner. The Tea Shoppe stamp set (see it online) has the perfect stamp for this combo technique, too!
- Use a bold image stamp (not great for line art)
- Ink the stamp first with Versamark, then rock the darker ink around the edges to keep your Versamark pad clean.
- Remember to pounce (not wipe) with your Sponge Dauber to keep the ink from smearing.
- If you don’t get enough color on your image, try mooshing (yes, a technical term) the Dauber more in the Stampin’ Pastel.
A couple other things about this card from my April session of Stamp Club with Meg:
- Yes, that’s a tea bag! The piece of Twitterpated Designer Paper makes a little pocket to hold the bag in place. Use Sticky Strip at the two ends to hold it tight.
- I love the Paper Doily Sizzlit (see it online). It helps to have a few tips on making it work easily.
- It’s easier to stamp on the back side of the Mini Vintage Tags (see them online). I used Staz-On ink here to keep the image from smearing.
Happy Stamping (and tea drinking)!

The supplies you’ll need:
- Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online)

My new favorite stamp set? Hands down, it’s Apothecary Art (see it online) from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I can’t seem to put it down! Funny, especially because I didn’t even pre-order it on my first demonstrator pre-order… I reluctantly added it later. Just goes to show, sometimes it’s the play-time that makes a set our favorite!
Let’s see… favorite highlights of this card?
- It’s simple! The base of the card is one of the Note Card & Envelopes that come as a package (note cards & envelopes together – see them online). I use these all the time now! They’re quick to grab for a card idea I want to get down fast, and the envelope is already included. Check out some other samples from my blog.
- Pleated Satin Ribbon — could it be any more gorgeous? (see it online)
- Twitterpated Designer Series Paper — my current fav of all the Occasions Mini catalog papers (see it online)
- For something a little different, try using the Eyelet Border Punch (see it online) along the side of the card, and layer with a short strip of contrasting paper.
