Have I mentioned I Love Happy Watercolor?

Last September when I was at Stampin’ Up’s Founder’s Circle retreat (seriously, I was so blessed with amazing downline and customers to help get me there!), they gave us the Happy Watercolor stamp set.  When I saw it, I wasn’t quite convinced, but after looking at samples and then playing with it, I was hooked!

The thing that is awesome is that you can use each little piece in different ways to suit your style and then mix it up for a new-to-you look. 

In this case, I was playing around with a few ideas including sponging the flower head using a sponge dauber!

I also busted out my surprise favorite from the catalog, the Gold Baker’s twine to hold down my folded lace doily.

I’ll be honest, this gold baker’s twine seems to be something people either love or don’t…. mainly because the gold foil bits like to unwind from your cut end of the twine.  But since I usually tack down my ends or only have a little bit of tail for my knots, it doesn’t bother me and it adds just the right amount of glitz.

Either way, I am so sad this stamp set doesn’t seem to be carrying over into the new catalog.  Guess I need to give it lots of love in the next few weeks! Smile
