Custom Felt Pads: Day of Gratitude

You may have used Stampin’ Write Markers to ink your stamp in multiple colors, but did you know that you can use regular craft felt with your Classic Pad Ink Refills to make Custom Ink Pads, too?

The **Custom Felt Pad** technique is easy:

  1. Outline your stamp on a piece of craft felt with a pen
  2. Drip ink from the Refill bottle onto the felt until the saturation point.  Use as many colors as you like beginning with the light colors first and filling in dark colors last.
  3. Gently ink stamp on felt pad and stamp as normal
  4. (optional) keep your custom felt pad on an absorbent ceramic tile while you stamp and reink, to keep the ink from pooling behind the felt and mixing as you reink your custom pad

This technique is great for when you are making several of the same card and don’t want to use your Stampin’ Write Markers to ink a stamp 50 or 100 times.

I used the technique here to stamp the medallions in the background of this card.  Day of Gratitude is one of the fabulous new stamp sets available in the Holiday Mini Catalog (browse here).

Like the scallop trim on this card?  It’s from the Tasteful Trim Big Shot Die (I think it’s aptly named!) in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

If you’re in the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois area, join me for Stamp Club this week!  (tonight actually!!) We’ll be making this card as one of our projects.
