  • Whisper White (layer) – 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Elegant Eggplant – scraps
  • Whisper White – scraps
  • Silver Foil – 3/8” x 2-1/2”
  • Ribbon – 3-3/4”

Instructions:

  1. Ink the flourishing floral image using VersaMark ink. Stamp the image on Whisper White layer. Cover the image with the embossing powder. Lightly tap off the excess. Heat set using the Heat Tool. Let cool.
  2. Use a separate sponge dauber (Elegant Eggplant, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight) for each color. Tap the dauber lightly onto the ink pad, rub some of the ink off onto a piece of scrap paper. You want to make sure the color isn’t too strong. You can always go back over it a second time if you decide you want more color. Add the ink to the embossed image using a soft, circular motion. The embossed areas will resist the ink. Once finished, use a tissue and rub in small circular motions over the embossed image. This will remove ink from areas it will not dry and eliminate any smudging.
  3. Cut one end of the ribbon on an angle. Adhere the ribbon to the Whisper White layer, adhering the other raw end behind the layer. Adhere the layer to the card base.
  4. Stamp the greeting using black ink on Whisper White scraps. Cover the image with clear embossing powder. Lightly tap off the excess. Heat set using the Heat Tool. Let cool. Die cut using the appropriate size circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  5. Die cut a circle slightly larger than the one for the greeting using Elegant Eggplant scraps and the Circle Framelits.
  6. Cut an angle on both ends of the silver foil strip. Adhere the silver strip behind the Whisper White greeting. Adhere the Elegant Eggplant circle to create the layer shown.
  7. Adhere the layered circles over the top of the ribbon.  Adhere the layers to the card base using Dimensionals.

Receiving a new stamp set is so exciting! 

Until you ink it up and realize you're not getting a good impression.  You clean the stamp and try again. Same problem.  

You begin to question if you need a firmer surface or a better handle of the stamp.

After numerous attempts you end up frustrated - and confused.  Why isn't it stamping well?  

Often times new stamps have 'debris' from the manufacturing process that impedes with the ink.  It's not visually noticeable but it doesn't provide a crisp image.  

Try priming your stamp.  This is especially helpful with photopolymer stamps and works great on all 'red rubber' images as well.

My quick tip video will show you how to prime your new stamps for a better image.  I'm certain, after today's video tip, you will be reaching for your VersaMark pad a lot more!
