Phil and I were invited to a wine and cheese wedding reception recently to celebrate the marriage of friends who had a Caribbean destination wedding. I received a card similar to this in a downline swap from Pam M and knew I had to make this card. I just couldn’t resist the Rhinestone Jewel bubbles.
Since it was a wedding card, I wanted to dress it up a bit and use the Brushed Silver card stock with Night of Navy. I knew that silver ink would look good with the rhinestones so I decided to play with my new Silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker as the ink.
I coloured directly onto the stamp with the marker and then stamped the image onto card stock as I normally would. And it worked!
My concern was about cleaning the stamp afterwards. No problem! If the stamp is cleaned right away the marker colour comes off easily. I decided to leave the ink on longer to see if it made cleaning the stamp more difficult. I have a bad habit of leaving my stamps on the table with ink on them for days until I put them away so this was important to me. The stamp was left for about three days before I cleaned it. It did take a few more swipes on the Stampin’ Scrub this time but not many. It still cleaned up surprisingly quick.
For $4.50, the Stampin’ Dazzle Markers, available in both Silver and Gold, are a great investment. My newsletter this week will include a video showing another way to use these markers. Videos in my newsletter will not appear on my blog, so if you haven’t already, sign up for my newsletter today so you don’t miss out!
The Stampin’ Dazzle Marker from the Holiday Catalogue can be used in place of ink! Simply colour directly onto the stamp with the marker, huff with your breathe to refresh the ink and stamp the image.
