Hi, everyone! Today I’m going to share a tip on how to make your own ink pad using baby wipes and the spray inks that you have on hand.
Start by folding up two baby wipes in a rectangle. Then shake your spray mist and pour it on the baby wipe. Don’t worry about clumps of shimmer—when you ink your stamp, it will spread out onto its surface.
Next, stamp away, set ink with a heat tool, and turn your newly stamped paper into a great card.
So why go to the trouble to make your own stamp pad? Well, if you are as particular as I am about colors matching on your projects, this is a great way to coordinate stamped images and embellishments. Here I have sprayed the paper flowers on my cards, which were originally white, to match the stamped flowers.
I also love how shiny your stamped image turns out, which is a fun bonus if you love shiny as much as I do. Here’s a close-up in good light so you can see the card’s finish.
So are you ready to break out your spray inks and give it a try?
