Van Gogh in the Garden

Van Gogh in the Garden

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I am so glad Stampin’ Up! brought back Glossy White Cardstock in the new Annual Catalog. There are so many techniques like Crayon Resist, and Direct to Paper, and this one. Take a look.

Just Add Text, Awesomely Artistic, Stampin' Up!

Isn’t that fun? It’s another resist technique, and this is one of the cards we’ll be making in classes in July. It uses several new products – the Glossy White Cardstock, the gorgeous Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, and the new Just Add Text stamp set.

I love how everything about this card coordinates. That’s one of the things I like most about Stampin’ Up! – product and color coordination is so easy and stress-free. And, of course, you don’t have to look all over town for supplies. They’re all right there at your fingertips.

The resist technique is so simple. Stamp images in VersaMark ink, then use a sponge brayer to color over them. The VersaMark resists the ink, leaving the image lighter than the background. You need to remember to let it dry a minute before sponging, and I use my heat tool to set the ink and help the VersaMark stand out a bit.

Sponging on Glossy White always looks so professional. The colors blend much better on glossy than on regular Whisper White or Very Vanilla.

Don’t forget that whenever you spend $50 (at one time) in July, you’ll get a coupon code for $5 to spend in August. And, of course, there’s a lovely promotion for new demonstators. Besides the $125 in product of your choice and the business tools, you’ll also receive two “D” Blocks, Grid Paper, a Bone Folder, Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, and Carols of Christmas, a stamp set that will be released in the Holiday Catalog in September – all for only $99. Check the promotions out here, then head to my online store to order, or the online IDA to sign up!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
