Crazy About You Gift Bag

Imagine this gift bag made with the 2015-2017 In Color cardstock and filled with yummy Easter chocolates… Go ahead… I’ll wait while you imagine chocolate…  I love the colours in the 2015-2017 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers because I’m longing for spring (and chocolate)!  The weather reports are calling for a big storm to come our way tomorrow.  After today’s bright sunshine (and last weekend’s snow melt) it felt like spring was just around the corner.  With colour names like Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder I could just imagine packing for an early spring picnic!  Pair these colours with the flowers and sentiments found in the Crazy About You stamp set – add in the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch on sale this week and you’ve got the makings of a spring bonanza of inspiration!

The Crazy About You stamp set (photopolymer, clear-mount rubber stamps, and wood-mount rubber stamps) is also available bundled with the Hello You Thinlits Dies for a 15% savings.  Flower images coordinate with the Flower Medallion Punch on sale this week  and the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Wondering how to add colour to your stamps with just the 2015-2017 In Colour Stampin’ Write Marker?  Watch the video below and see how to inexpensively expand your ink selection and stamp images in any colour (or colours) you chose!

Stampin’ Up! Stamping Techniques VIDEO: Markering

Remember these Stampin’ Up tips from the video:

  1. Breathing – You always want to “huff” on your stamps after you colour them to moisten the ink right before you stamp.
  2. Tapping – After colouring your image, just tap the image with another marker, and you get a cool two-toned effect

Markering allows you to get every colour in the 2015-2017 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers on the stamp, perfectly, without any other steps.  Imagine the possibilities and opportunities for creativity!  With a stamp in one hand and a Stampin’ Write Marker in the other, you can colour inside the lines… and outside too!
