Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Exclusive - Altenew

Hello Lovelies! Welcome to the 5th Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Exclusive collaboration featuring Altenew!!! You can count on Altenew for gorgeous florals and the Beautiful Lily set is no exception! This is also available as a standalone stamp set OR paired with its matching dies. I fussy-cut this out (applause please), so that is an option Lovelies.

When I want to watercolor but am feeling lazy about it, I go to my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. A mouthful of a name but a very forgiving set of markers that allow you to blend without using alcohol inks. I could have made this look more painterly by also using a water brush, but did I mention that I was being lazy???

Here's a closer look at this exclusive set only available an while supplies last!

Today's GIF!

Just wanted to share a video of me doing what I do best...being lazy!

I love your card and all it's imperfections (that ifyou hadn't pointed them out, no one would've noticed). I don't have the best results with my Zig watercolor pens...your results are fantastic. I need to practice with them more.

I've never noticed someone using gold for background of white sentiment. Probably been done but I NOTICED this and want you to know how glorious it seems. Radiating the thanks you feel. I will certainly be using this for emphasis on my cards. THANKS
