Stampin' Up! Island Vibes


hello sunshine!  I'm loving the warm sunny weather we are having lately!  I wish we could hang onto it for a bit longer, but it looks like cold and snowy weather is heading our way in a day or two.  I'm going to keep this card handy until it blows over!  I like have things that brighten my day and remind of me of sunshine close by.   

Did you know you can use Stampin' Write Markers to color directly on Stampin' Up!'s cling stamps?  This was one of the first stamping techniques I learned and I still love it, over 15 years later!  It's so easy to do and adds so much versatility to your stamping.  I recommend starting with the lighter color first, and working your way to the darkest color.  After coloring on the stamp, 'huff' on the stamp to make sure the ink is all moist, then stamp as usual.  This pineapple stamp is perfect for this technique!

I ended up adding the pineapple to the inside of the card AND to the front of the envelope!  I think I'm going to have to talk my husband into grilling some pineapple slices soon. It sounds so yummy, and I haven't eaten grilled pineapple since last summer!
