Do you invest in Stampin’ Up! reinkers, and then wonder why? It’s true, I’m not reinking my pads often – even with classes. So, what to do with that little investment taking up space in your craft area? You are going to love today’s design as it showcases one of the many ways you can use reinkers. I’m using modeling paste and our Daffodil Delight reinker, along with a “sleeper” tool – the stars (& hearts) stencil mask. It’s soo easy!

Changes are going smoothly here at Our Home in the Woods, but in the meantime I’ve got a sweet design for this sweet sketch by Lisa Ann Bernard. Oh, the possibilities are endless, but I needed a card for a coworker who is moving on to a new company and exiting opportunities. I will really miss working with him as he’s been an amazing leader. Well – our new Thoughtful Banners stamp set is the perfect way to highlight some of his best qualities, followed by a congrats sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes card kit.

Instead of giving you Mastery Tips today, I thought I’d reshare a video I did a while back on how to use modeling paste. I show a few ways to create your own stencils too. Since then, we’ve added in the stencil masks to the catalog. In this instance, I also just spread some of the colored paste onto a piece of cardstock, and let it dry. Then, I was able to cut out a shape (star) with framelits and the Big Shot. You could even use a Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter to the dried elements. I think you’ll be seeing more of these great textured elements from me – they’re so easy and add total WOW to a project!
