This post is getting a lot of traffic. Yay! 🙂
I want to give just a few more tips if you are going to try to create these babies for yourself.
Tip #1: when using Sharpies with Stazon you just need to be careful not to overlap your ink too much. Don’t marker over your stamped image or you will get smearing. I have been doing these ornaments for a few years and there is a learning curve. I do not like to large images with the Sharpies or you will get some streaking. Let it dry and you can go back over it and hopefully, it will all smooth out.
Tip #2: Have good ole baby wipes handy. If you don’t like your stamped image–wipe it off, dry your ornament and try again! Same goes if you do not like how the markers are working. Start over and try again!
You could spray your ornament with some sort of fixative however, I have not had any problems with fading or smearing. But, if you scratch them the ink will come off where it was scratched.
Hello! Today I am sharing another ornament that I recently created. This time I used a retired stamp (I don’t have the name, I only have this one stamp from the set). I *love* all snowmen and these little guys (and girls) are no exception! So fun and cute!!
Just like the last ornament I showed you, I stamped my image with my Jet Black Stazon and colored it in with Sharpies. That’s it. I tied some pretty ribbons to the top to create my hanger.
I stamped all of my ornaments this year with this cute little “made for you by me” stamp from the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit. In the past I have used a personalized stamp that I have with my name on it but this stamps so much nicer on these ornaments. It follows the Stampin’ Up! Angel Policy (you must use a stamp with the © Stampin’ Up! line if you are selling items created with SU! stamps).
Here is the view of the back of the ornament. I finished my ornaments off by placing them into 6″ x 8″ cellophane bags that Stampin’ Up! carries. Of course, I add a bit more ribbon to the close them up.
