Retiring In Color Daisies Wash Technique
Make a palette of colour by either placing a couple of drops of Ink Refill into the lid of the stamp pad or use a Clear Block A and ink it up from the stamp pad.
Wash over your Shimmery White A4 Card Stock which is cut to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ v 4″.
Tip: Have all your card front cut and just clean your Aqua Painters and Clear Block A off on your Stampin’ Scrub in between colours. By having all your card front cut and ready to colour, you can make a number of these cards all in different colours.

Tip: If you have the In Color 2017–2019 Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment and like the colours, make sure you buy the Ink Refills so you can reink your ink pads and use them for different techniques. Buy them before they’re gone on May 31 or while stocks last.
Retiring In Color Daisies Basics
- Cut your card base from 2017-2019 In Color A4 Cardstock to 21 cm x 14.9 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
- Cut a card insert of Whisper White A4 Card Stock to 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
- Use the small flower from Daisy Delight Photopolymer Stamp Set and In Color 2017–2019 Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment to stamp on the card insert and the Whisper White C6 Envelopes
See yesterday’s post for more instructions and tips on making these cards
Tip: When using your Stamparatus, clean your stamps using the Simply Shammy and then store your Simply Shammy in a Clear-Mount Stamp Cases. This makes travelling with your Simply Shammy easy as well as easy storage at home. It will keep your Simply Shammy moist for those times when you are constantly stamping and it’s easy to leave the case open to let your Simply Shammy dry out at other times.
Tip: I still recommend cleaning your stamps with the Stampin’ Scrub and the Stampin’ Mist as the Stampin’ Mist actually conditions your stamps and keeps them in great condition for a long time. It saves you money from buying new stamps to replace stamps which have become unusable. However, Stampin’ Up! products are all made of the highest quality. It’s still a good idea to protect your investment by looking after it properly
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share.
