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

Tool Solution for Intricate Dies!

Stampin’ Up! has so many intricately beautiful dies, and they love incorporating them as much as possible!  But what if you’re using a die and you can’t detach all the little pieces that make it so intricate?  That’s why the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip (149655) found on page 189 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is a must-have!  It easily removes small cut pieces from dies, and it fits into the Take Your Pick tool (144107), so all you have to do is put the die-cut image on the foam pad, and run the brush over it to remove any excess paper from the die!  Easy and done.

Want to see how easy it is?  Check out this video…..
