    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Mindy asked: " I saw a card on Pinterest that a person made with Stampin' Up! supplies (mostly) and she had a brick pattern at the bottom. It was Santa coming out of a chimney, and the chimney looked just like brick. I couldn't figure out how she did the brick pattern - do you have any idea?"
    A: Could it have been done by cutting paper into pieces and sponging the edges like Birgit shows in this tutorial?
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Far North has a suggestion for the Water Stamping Tutorial: "Option instead of ironing: hold background paper with both hands on opposite sides and roll over curved edge of a counter or table edge.
