Do You YUPO?

Hi friends! Tonight we are going to explore stamping on a plastic paper called YUPO. I was first introduced to this paper 14 years ago and I used it for watercolor but it is really fun to stamp on too!


You can make really fun backgrounds by wetting the paper or get crisp stamped imaged when dry. Watch the video to see some fun techniques!


I used the new release from Rubber Stamp Tapestry for my demo today (each set is listed below.) Deal alert! Get free shipping on USA orders of $10 or more with coupon code SHIPFREE16

  1. I had this idea that Yupo paper was just for alcohol inks. I had no idea you could do watercolor on it! Thanks so much for sharing. I am a big fan of the Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets!


  2. Lindsay, Recently started using YUPO for watercolor. It can be challenging, but I love it. Such interesting results. Fran


  3. Got to get some of this paper. Very neat.


  4. Thanks for the link. I just ordered some of the stamps. Woohoo for free shipping. AND, they have 75% off on some of their unmounted stamps. I must be a papercrafter, because I WANT IT ALL!!!


  5. I would love to try this since I also like using alcohol inks and read about it all the time. Unfortunately it’s pretty expensive which is a deterrent for now. Yours came out really lovely!


  6. Never heard of this paper. I love the results you did with it.


  7. I bought some of this paper and used alcohol inks on it. It was fun! Now I’ll have to try your ideas. Thanks as always!
