Regarding Dahlias and Express Yourself stamp sets

I love dahlias and was very excited to see this new Stampin’ Up! stamp set.  After embossing the image, I wanted to emphasize the petals so I went around each one with the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write marker.  I really think it made them “pop”.  Hope you like this as much as I do!    Have a great weekend and Happy Stampin!

I just love the results of two-step stamping.  The process is so easy and the results are so stunning. I decided to use just one color (Real Red) and tapped off the ink or you could use two colors for a completely different look.  However, you choose to stamp your image the end product will be wonderful.  Why don’t you give two-step stamping a try?  Just click on any of the links below and you will go directly to my Stampin’ Up! store where you can shop to your hearts content.  You know you can never have too many stamping supplies.    Happy Stampin!
