What I love about Stampin' Up! ~ 2-step Stamping

The thing that first got me excited about Stampin' Up! 9 years ago was their 2-step stamp sets.  No longer did I have to stamp an outline and color it in.  With 2-step stamping you can quickly make a beautiful watercolor-like image with absolutely no skill in painting.
1. Stamp a lighter color with the solid stamp.
2. Stamp a darker shade of that color with the detail stamp.
3.Add some leaves in a lighter green.
4. Stamp leaf detail in a darker green.
5. Add a little filler with the baby's breath stamp.

The stamp set I used here is a retired set called Watercolor Minis. Although it is not longer in our catalog here are a few current sets that are also wonderful for 2-step stamping:
