Stampin’ Up! Water Painters come in a 3 pack and they are amazing for watercoloring, creating backgrounds AND sealing envelopes rather than licking them!
Stampin’ Up! Water Painters come as a 3 pack. There is a fine tip brush, a thicker (marker like tip) brush, and a wide, flat brush (as shown in blue above). These brushes are just $13.00 (plus tax and shipping) and you can do so many amazing things with them!
Simply fill the barrel with water and use to watercolor a stamped image. Once you are finished with a color, wipe off the tip on a paper towel and move to the next color. You can also create backgrounds with them. Stripes, polka dots, plaid, a border…..the possibilities are endless. One of my favorite things to use my Water Painter for is sealing envelopes. Especially during this time of year when I’m sealing lots of envelopes, it’s quick and simple and no watery mess. Best of all no nasty taste in my mouth or a paper cut on my tongue. So handy for so many reasons!

Stampin’ Up! released NEW Baby Blending Brushes AND a Blending Brush Storage piece. Eeeee Bring all on the cuteness and organization! I am so game!
The front 3 brushes are the NEW Baby Blending Brushes. I would say they are almost half the size of the bigger ones or so. The smaller ones offer a little more control of color and a smaller surface for doing smaller/tighter spaces.
You will also notice this amazing NEW Blending Brushes Storage. It holds 9 brushes (big and small). It nice and small and light weight so it can sit on a shelf or on your desk. It’s very clean and sleek looking so it is sure to match! I’m pretty excited about it because before this I had them in a cup but I couldn’t see each brush at a glance.
Here is a little sneak peak at a background that I created with Blending Brushes. Any guesses as to what the final card might look like?!?! Let me know in the comments below and stay tuned for the finished card!

The Take Your Pick Tool is one of those super handy tools to have on your crafting space all the time. I even have more than 1 because I lose mine in the mess….and for when I have classes! 🙂 Do you have one?
Reason I love it / Tips: ~It’s small and easy to have in a cup next to your craft space. ~There are lots of different ends for lots of different uses! ~My favorite is now the putty end to put jewels on your project. It’s just so easy to press the putty on the side of a jewel to pick up and then set on your project! Just put your finger on the jewel and pull the putty away! So quick and easy and better than a fingernail! You can get putty refills as well! ~The stylus end can be used to make a fabulous edge around your die cut image for a little extra texture and dimension. Simply leave the cardstock in the die and run the stylus around the metal edge! Click here to see that video!
~I used the pointy tip for various things like popping out a die cut, pocking out cardstock that doesn’t come out with the die, holding cardstock while I heat emboss and more! ~Also, did you know there is a Brush Attachment that you can use to pop die cut bits out of your image??? ~The pancake flipper end is used to get under a project to pop it up, slide adhesive under in a spot I missed, and sometimes for jewels. ~The only con I have is that it gets buried in the mess on my desk and I can’t find it. LOL Good thing I have more than one!
Do you have a Take Your Pick Tool? Do you love it? How do you use your tips? Do share! I would love to hear more.
I have had mine for about 3 weeks now. Here are a few of my (honest) thoughts so far! I always want to be honest with you!
~IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I love the white sleek look with the silver accents. Hello bling! You had me at shiny! 🙂 ~The machine is compact and easy to carry around without having those sides open. It will fit down in a bag or basket very easily. The baskets I take to events didn’t fit my Big Shot so it was angled in there. This will be a dream! ~It is wider than the Big Shot but the plates are the same size. I love this because that means I can have cardstock hang over or push it through a little crooked (opps) and not have it scratch up the sides. BONUS! Some of my plates look rough because of this in the past!
~It is very similar to the Big Shot and probably other die cutting machines. It all comes down to needing a machine and the small differences! One of my Big Shots crossed over the rainbow bridge earlier this year but I still have the 2nd one. It sits right next to my new machine and I still use them both! The New Stampin’ Cut & Emboss just looks prettier! 🙂 ~Okay so the more I use it, the more thoughts I have. Yesterday, I was cranking away to die cut some labels and it did that thing where it sort of pops after going through the thick part. Then my hand slipped off which happens randomly and with the Big Shot it would whip around and usually hit the top of my hand/wrist/thumb. With the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss, it doesn’t swing as freely so it popped out and just moved a smidge and stopped. I was like SAVED!!!! I had to share this with you all because that’s amazing to me!
Today, I’m sharing the reveal of the NEW Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! It is coming soon for all of you on September 1st!!!
I unboxed this on video and played with it and explored it on camera so everything is real! The white with silver accents is my favorite! It’s just so pretty! I can’t decide if I think it is heavier than the Big Shot or just that the suction to the table was strong. That is a good thing though because you don’t want the machine moving all over the place.
The sides pop down and fold up for easy storage or traveling! It is really easy to pop them down and they really snap back up! Assembling the handle was super easy to do as well!!!
As for the plates, I love that they are numbers and super clear as to which one is which. The instructions are on the main plate so that makes it super simple to have on hand and know what you need!
This is coming soon for all of you – September 1st!!! There is also a Mini Machine coming soon but the dates have not been announced just yet!

I will play with snowflakes all day long in the stamp room but not in real life. I am not a huge fan of winter and bad weather. When I first saw this Snowflake Splendor Suite, I fell in love!!! Which is kind of odd since I just said I didn’t like snow and winter. Ehhh What are you going to do!?!?!
I think it’s those fabulous colors of blues, purples, and greens that I love the most. It’s soft but also POPS. The prints vary which gives a nice array of looks to use this paper for! I think it will make perfect backgrounds but also it’s stunning to just be the focal point! What do you think???

I have seen so many projects done with the Playful Pets Suite that I knew I had to get in on the fun. There are many time a friend loses a pet or gets a pet that I think to send a card for but I don’t always have the supplies. Since I don’t think I will use this all the time, I got just the designer paper to start with!
I am cat person so of course I am loving the kitty prints the most in this pack. Also, the paw prints and bowls and stuff are really cute. I feel like unless you know the breed of the dog, it could be odd to send a card with a dog on it but not the correct one. Am I wrong? Maybe dog people wouldn’t care. I feel like while there technically are different breeds of cats, to me they are all just cats! 🙂 Let me know your favorite in the comment below – dogs or cats???

I’m not a huge fan of Fall but I think that’s only because it means winter is coming. I hate winter. Another option could be that I’m not really a earthly tones…browns, oranges type of girl. I prefer blacks and grays and bright colors! UNTIL NOW……Stampin’ Up released this Gilded Autumn Designer Paper and I love it so much!!!
I have already been playing with this paper and I can’t get enough of it. It is so pretty. There are punches that coordinate with the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set as well as this paper. No need to fussy cutting the images or coloring the stamped images if that’s not your thing. Of course, if you enjoy that, go for it! The foil patterns are just stunning and add that little pop of shine. I just may be looking forward to Fall this year!!!

The August to December Mini Catalog begins on August 4th and I just can’t wait any longer to share with you the amazing products!!! Today, I’m showing off the Plaid Tidings Paper because it is one of my favorites!!!
I’m from a small town and my family farms! Plaid button down shirts are a major staple for most of the men in my family. When I first saw this paper, I pictured my Dad having a shirt in many of these color combinations. It really made me smile and warmed my heart. I’ll have to confirm with my Mom but I think he had shirt similar to the upper left (pink/yellow/blue) back when they were dating. Any of the other blue and green designs are for sure prints that he currently wears. I just love it all!
Plaid is perfect for the Fall and Winter season because of it’s soft, warm feeling. It also works great for many occasions! I can see using this paper for a long time and that makes me excited!!! The more versatile the paper is, the more I know I can use every sheet!!
