TIP from Shari Wicks, on my North Star Stamper Team:  Did you know? The White Perfect Accents have a white paper backing that can be removed with your piercing tool. Without the paper backing they are clear and will appear any color you place them onto using a Glue Dot. COOL TIP, Shari!!

Cheater Watercoloring


Many of us struggle with watercoloring...including me.

I have a "CHEATER METHOD" for you to try!!


Stamp your open image, like this daisy from Helping ME Grow Stamp Set, onto watercolor paper.   Trace over all lines, including the details, using a Stampin' Write Marker. Then fill an Aqua Painter with water and BLEED the color to fill the area.


Here is the result, which I like! Try this using differing amounts of wetness on your Aqua Painter brush!

Happy Home Bundle


So how did your MARCH arrive yesterday?? Like a lion or a lamb?? The sweet Happy Home Bundle creates a perfect springtime greeting!


To focus the viewer on the "great outdoors," keep the inside of the room soft. Use bright colors on the outdoor scene to "PULL" the eye to the window! I used watercolor paper for the scene.


This is such a FUN bundle of products with a nice 15% SAVINGS for YOU! Just in case you already own the Hearth and Home Thinlits, this stamp set is also available by itself in Wood or Clear mount.

Happy Home BUNDLE

#140806 wood - $38.25

#140805 clear - $32.25
