Using Stampin’ Markers to Ink Stamps with Beauty Abounds Stamp Set + Video Tutorial!

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

Time for another stampin’ technique ~ today I am going to be using a Stampin Marker to ink up one of the stamps on my card.  This is great if you don’t have the stamp pad in the color you want to use but you do have the marker.

I have paired the Beauty Abounds stamp set with Mint Macaron and Purple Posy – I don’t have the Purple Posy ink pad yet but I do have the marker.  This stamp set has a really beautiful, swirly, stem of flowers and leaves – a perfect focal point for my card.

Love What You Do Friend Card

I have used the Love What You Do stamp set and other products from the Share What you Love Suite of products an awful lot – it is just very versatile and has a wide range of colors within the DSP which means I get plenty of choices when designing a card.  ALSO – as a demonstrator I was able to get my hands on this suite way back in April – so it has given me plenty of time to play with it.  (If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator there is a great deal for joining Stampin’ UP! in July ……. click here if you would like to know more)
