Way to Watercolor!
I have a video for you today! It’s not my video; it’s much better! Stampin’ Up! has lots of videos on YouTube to show you how to use products in the catalogs, and this one is for the Watercolor Pencils.
Our Watercolor Pencils set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog is my favorite product. I absolutely loved our old set of pencils. They weren’t Stampin’ Up! colors, but they were so easy to use and blended beautifully. In fact, you could blend them to create every Stampin’ Up! color. I was sad when they retired, because they made anyone look like an artist.
The new watercolor pencils come in 13 of the Stampin’ Up! Core Colors. They look and act like the same pencils we had before – very easy to blend and easy to work with – but they’re in SU colors. And there are so many fun sets in the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure that they are perfect for – Beautiful You, of course, plus the super cute Little Cuties set, as well as Moon Baby. Actually, as I look through the catalog, most of the sets are perfect for watercoloring! And then we have the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, Tasty Trucks, and Hey Chick in the Sale-a-bration catalog. Bonus -with every $50 you spend during Sale-a-bration, you can select one of the SAB products free!
Since I’ve been busy with a little cutie of my own (scroll to the end to see her latest), I’m sharing the Watercolor Pencils video from Stampin’ Up!. Shannon West shows some fun tips for using them, and shows how they look on different papers. Watercolor Paper and Shimmery White Cardstock are the best, with Whisper White and Very Vanilla coming in third. You can use them by themselves, or with Aqua Painters or Blender Pens. And….well, you can see for yourself. Take a look.
As promised, here’s my cutie pie. She was so funny today. First, she saw Mike leaving with my water bottle. I had to assure her that he had asked and received permission to borrow it.
Then, she saw Jon’s flip flops in the living room. Again, she was quite distressed, because she thought he was out in the 20 degree weather without his shoes. Once I had convinced her that he had his boots on and wasn’t barefoot, she decided to try them on for size.
They’re a little big…she took four steps and decided to give up the idea. But how adorable is that little face? She’s getting so tall, and is communicating very well. She tells me lots of stories about her Daddy and Mommy – and I can understand everything she says. (Of course, I can; I’m “Grandma.” Actually, she calls me Seesa. Don’t have a clue what that means or where she got it, but I’ll take it!)
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
