Wednesday’s Card: Two-Step Stamping

Hi All! I am so incredibly excited about this week’s card! These flowers were so easy to create. I’m not kidding. Stampin’ Up! has had these two-step stamps for a long time. Here’s how it works… you get two stamps for one image. One is a solid silhouette and one adds more detail. You stamp them on top of each other in different colors to get more dimension. I never really paid much attention to them because I thought they {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: White Watercolor Flowers

I got this kit from Stampin’ Up! and was able to make some cool flowers, so I thought I would share.
