WOW! Video! Inking Up a Great Cup of Tea!

One of the questions I often get asked is about getting better coverage with solid image stamps, especially photopolymer stamps.  Stampin’ Up! photopolymer (or clear) stamps are my stamp set of choice because they stick well on clear blocks and their “see through” nature allows for easy and precise placement.  Photopolymer line images stamp very crisply.  However, solid images can be a bit more of a challenge to get good ink coverage.  This is easy enough to remedy with a few simple tips!

Today’s WOW! video shares my tips on how to get good ink coverage with solid image photopolymer stamps.  It also gives you a closer look at the new A Nice Cuppa stamp set and coordinating Cups & Kettles Framelits Dies.  Both will be available on Jan. 5, when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins.

  6. Mary, great tips on how to get a good solid image with this Photopolymer stamps, like you said, the pad needs to be juicy but not soaked and it’s always better to tap the ink pad onto the stamp and not the other way around.
    Lovely card in beautiful Wisteria Wonder.

  7. Great tips. I miss seeing your tutorials on a more regular basis. One Minute to WOW rocks!
