How to Get the Look of Purple Posy Ink

I know you miss Stampin’ Up!’s Purple Posy ink. I miss it too. But, did you know that there are ways to achieve a look of Purple Posy, without having the actual ink? Try some or all of these ideas!

  • Stamp on Purple Posy Cardstock (item 150881) using VersaMark Ink (item 102283) to create a tone-on-tone look.
  • Heat emboss using Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130) on Purple Posy Cardstock.
  • Add 6–8 drops of Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 147167) to a Stampin’ Spritzer (item 126185), then dilute with rubbing alcohol to reach your desired color. Spritz the mixture onto your project.
  • Use Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink (item 147103) with a Sponge Brayer (item 141714), Stamping Sponge (item 141337), Aqua Painter (item 103954), or stamped off. These methods look especially great on Purple Posy Cardstock!
  • Color cling stamps using a Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker (item 150079) before stamping.
  • Color stamped images using either light or dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends (item 149566).

Painted Harvest Tips and Tricks

I know I have been posting quite a bit about Christmas but with the seasons changing, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about another popular product: the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.

If you’ve ever used this autumn-themed set, you know one of its most endearing attributes is that it gives you the look and feel of painting with watercolors. And, like any work of art, there are many factors that influence your final product. I wanted to take a moment to let you know that Stampin’ Up! designed this set to help give your stamps a one-of-a-kind feel. Because this stamp set is meant to mimic the nature of watercolor, it’s particularly tricky to produce and can create varying results.

For the perfectionists among you (or those simply looking to master your craft), Stampin’ Up! is passing along some tips and tricks for stampin’ like a pro!

  • Stamp all layers of the image
  • Make sure your ink pads are well inked
  • Use nice, even pressure when stamping
  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Keep in mind that lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get your desired look
  • The stamp is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper
