Coloring Silver Glimmer Paper

Hello Stampers! Did you know that we have Glimmer Paper in lots of colors? Well, actually, we don't, but you can color it to just about any color you would want!

P1090883This is a swap that I made to take to Leadership this year. I wanted some flowers on my vine, but I wanted them to coordinate. I colored my Silver Glimmer paper (124005) with my Aqua Painter (103954) and Rose Red inker (102109). I made a video to show you how to do it!

 

Now hop over to my Inkin With Dink online store and order your supplies today to start coloring your glimmer paper! I'd love to see your projects!

How to re-ink your stamp pads

Hello Stampers!  OMG!  I recorded a video in April and totally forgot to let you know that it was on You Tube!  Thanks Theresa for letting me know!!!

After lots of use, your stamp pads will eventually need to be reinked.  This solution is cheaper than buying a new stamp pad. 

How do you know when it is time to reink?  You will no longer get complete coverage on your bold stamps, or in the case of your Basic Black stamp pads, they will start stamping a purplish color.

Watch this video which shows you step by step how easy the reinking process really is!

Mounting your SU! Clear Mount Stamp Sets!

Hello Stampers!  Today I wanted to do a tutorial on how to mount the new Clear Mount Stamp Sets in the new Occasions mini catalog!  From here on out, every new stamp set that SU! comes out with, you will have the option of ordering it as wood mount (the old style) or clear mount (the new style).  The clear mount sets are less expensive, but you do have to purchase the clear blocks to mount them on.

You can follow this step by step tutorial, or skip on down to the bottom and watch my video!

Blog 960 First you need to be sure you have clear mount blocks to adhere your stamps to.  SU! has 9 different sizes of blocks.  You can purchase them each indivdually or as a set and save almost $10.

Blog 961 When you receive your stamp set, it will be in a case similar to a DVD case.  Inside you will have your sheet of rubber stamps and a sheet of stickers.  Your mounting instructions are inside the front cover.

Blog 963 Punch your individual stamps out of the rubber sheet.

Blog 965 Remove the top liner from the sticker sheet.  Each image has a slit in the middle to make removing the liner easy.  The sticker will remain on your sheet with the sticky side up.

Blog 966 This is what your sticker sheet will look like with the top liner removed from one sticker.

Blog 964 Now remove the backing from your foam on your stamp.

Blog 967 Lay the sticky backing of the foam directly on top of the sticky side of the sticker, making sure to line up your images perfectly.

Blog 968 Now peel off your stamp with the sticker attached.  This is what the back side of your stamp will look like.  If your label is hanging over the side of your stamp, you can trim it.

Blog 969 Lay this sticker side of the stamp on your mounting block.  Press very firmly for a few moments for your stamp to stick firmly.

Blog 970 Now you are ready to stamp!  You can clean your stamp as usual, remove it from your clear block, and put it back into its case to store!  It's that easy!

Now for the video: 

If you would like to purchase your new blocks or one of the new clear mount stamp sets, hop on over to my website at www.dinalstamps.stampinup.net and click on the SHOP NOW in the top right hand corner!  Let me know if you have any questions!
