Joy of Noel Making Spirits Bright

Do you love to color your stamped images? Or do you prefer not to color stamped images? I’m usually in a hurry to make a stack of quick and easy cards, so I stay away from coloring. But, today, I show you a fun and beautiful coloring technique perfect for use with Stampin’ Up!’s Joy of Noel Bundle. Find it in Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. If you love this bundle, be sure to grab it. It’s being retired and won’t be available much longer.

Stampin' Up! Joy of Noel

Stampin’ Up! offers so many ways to color images — from Stampin’ Blends to Watercolor Pencils to Blender Pens and more. But did you know you can watercolor with the Wink of Stella pen? This accessory is generally used to sparkle and shine to projects. Be sure to watch the video below to see exactly how I watercolor with Wink of Stella to create this gorgeous handmade Christmas card.  (The picture doesn’t adequately show the shimmer of this beautiful card, so be sure to try it yourself.)
