I’m really enjoying the two-step stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! that have the “watercolor look.” This one, Reason for the Season, is so easy to use, and you can achieve a beautiful watercolored image with very little effort.
I stamped the main flower/leaf image using the new Basic Black Archival ink. All I had to do was stamp the Real Red leaves and then the Garden Green ones. The only things left were to stamp the sentiment and add some Crushed Curry to the centers of the flowers. Of course, I mixed the Crushed Curry with some Dazzling Details to give it a little more dimension.
Since the stamps in this set are photopolymer, you can see exactly where you’re stamping for perfect placement. But if you’re a little off, that’s ok. It adds to the watercolor look.
Some of the other stamps in this set coordinate with the Festive Flower Builder Punch. (You can see a video of the punch in action in the video I posted here.) You can purchase the stamps and punch separately, or you can bundle them and enjoy a 15% discount. And remember – any stamp sets you purchase through 11:55 p.m. MT on Friday, October 23, are offered at a 15% discount! So hurry and order those sets that are on your wish list!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
