WT49 - Ink it up and play along
 
1 Attachment(s)
I just bought some new reinkers and realized that I haven't used them in a while for anything but inking my ink pads. There are so many great techniques and ideas out there for using reinkers. This week the challenge is to find ways to use reinkers in your creations. Have fun and try something new or something you haven't done in a while. As always, share any tips you have. Also, this is not a contest or a race so have fun and post as many creations as you like for as long as you like. I keep getting people saying it is "late"...there is no time limit.:)

Below I have attached a document with lots of ideas that I picked up somewhere.

Have fun and don't forget to put WT49 in your keywords section when you upload and to post a link back here so that we can all view your creations.

Here is my card...

Happy inking,

Good morning Julia! I'm lovin' the reinkers today. Demo'd the Baby Wipe technique last night at a workshop - 4 ladies- $680 in sales. Perfect challenge for me today:)

Hedgehog0929 02-23-2006 05:55 AM

This is so fun! I have one in my gallery already. Here's a link:

I'll try to get another one on later today. I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

emilymomto3boys 02-23-2006 06:00 AM

ahh...how fun! I'll make a vow to try something new!

the_mad_stamper 02-23-2006 06:01 AM

Awesome Challenge! I did this one a long while ago but this challenge gives me an excuse to do it again. I miss the stained glass technique. Be back later with a new one.

Jeanne - that is so awesome! I'm sure they were just dazzled with your work!

stampinamy16 02-23-2006 06:14 AM

And, I promise to try something OTHER THAN polished stone!

Pink-fish 02-23-2006 06:14 AM

Thanks for the list of things to do with re-inkers. It's great! We did a polished stone project at a Stamp Camp I had this past weekend so here it is:

Lisa Loiselle 02-23-2006 06:20 AM

Julia - thanks for the awesome resource! I've been dying to try the baby wipe background, so today is my day. I'm home "sick" from work (cough, cough) and plan to play a lot. Oh boy!

Wendy G 02-23-2006 06:21 AM

Oh no! :( I only have one reinker and it's black. Maybe I can think of something to use it for. I did use it once before... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=48011

Know what you mean. I have white, black, almost amethyst and certainly celery. What a combo that'll make! Can't wait to see what I come up with!

justampin 02-23-2006 06:33 AM

I vow to do something I have never attempted. Thanks for the list.

Jeanne, way to go with the sales! Hope it put you in a new SAB bracket. Gotta love free stamps.

stampsinblue 02-23-2006 07:03 AM

Thanks Julia for the list of great techniques with reinkers. I only have orange, gold, and celadon (all non-SU colors), so I'm not sure what that might produce. But I just might give it a try. Thanks for posting!

LodiChick 02-23-2006 07:04 AM

Here is mine, polished stone. I may have to try some of the other things on the list later. Great challenge!!

Oooo, sounds like fun! I've never done much with my refills other than reinking pads. I'll have to try something I haven't done before. I bought Future & Baby Wipes, but haven't used either yet. Great challenge, Julia.

Wendy,

You can probably 'cheat' & substitute food coloring for some of the techniques. Only we don't call it cheating, we call it creative substitution!

Wendy, no problem! Turn your ink pads upside down and press against the lid. You will get little tinys dots of ink on the lid. Use an aqua pen or a paint brush with water and wha-la you have instant re-inkers.

Barbra, see my message to Wendy. Use your stamp pads. Turn upside down and press against the lid. You'll get little tiny dots of color. Use an aqua pen or regular paint brush with water and you can water color. The more you press, the more color you will get. You can also use this method with baby wipes.

jsbrooketrout 02-23-2006 07:34 AM

Here's mine!! I want to try a couple other things, too! My daughter will help me with a few neat projects for this!! Thanks Julia!!

Jeanne, that's fantastic, you go girl. That's exciting enough to get your creative juices flowing! Can't wait to see what you unload today.

Lisa Loiselle 02-23-2006 08:02 AM

Here's mine! Fun!

Thank you Julia, I love the examples you gave for inspiration. I used the Easter Egg Background and I kinda liked the way it turned out. Let me know what you gals think.

REINKER SPRING THANKS

LOVE AND PRAYERS

Julia S 02-23-2006 08:06 AM

Here is mine. May still be pending but I've got a sick baby here and can't wait around.:)

TFL,

Barbra1224 02-23-2006 08:10 AM

I made two backgrounds with this challenge. The first is my kinda shaving cream (dh only had gel). I also tried marbles, but haven't made a card with that yet. Only had 2 colors of re-inkers (if you don't count black and white). Here's my first go. I like it!

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=229346

Thanks for the great challenge!

Grandmama BoBo 02-23-2006 08:24 AM

Well, this sounds interesting. The only thing I've ever done with reinkers is polished stone. Will try something new. Jeanne, great sales for only 4 ladies. My daughter has a party tonight and there's supposed to be 3 or 4. Don't think she'll get anywhere close to that.

Grandmama BoBo 02-23-2006 08:40 AM

It's me again with a couple questions. I was going to print a copy of the reinker technique and it says it can't be printed. I was just wondering why. Would be nice to have it. Also, would someone pm me the directions to post a thread in the forum? Thank you in advance for letting me know.

laurakj 02-23-2006 08:47 AM

LOL well I only have 2 re-inkers; black and Chocolate Chip, so I guess Chocolate Chip it is :) I'll have to come up with something!

I have a couple copies and your email so I'll send them that way.

I'm working on mine Julia with many interuptions so maybe sometime today!

bsktcase27 02-23-2006 09:19 AM

The reason I bought reinkers was to try the Magic snowflake technique, here's my version using Wonderful wings:

so I am trying the tissue and acetate and it says to peel up the tissue when it is dry....it's not peeling! Am I not waiting long enough??

Emily, when I've done acetate & tissue, I didn't take the tissue off the acetate. The acetate was part of the card. Pretty much like caught in crystal (with Future), but it ended up thicker. I suppose it depends on what you're using as your glue. Some may pull apart easier than others. I've used white glue (like Elmer's) and Mod Podge.

lacyquilter 02-23-2006 11:48 AM

I finally finished one. Did caught in crystal for the 1st time. Kinda time consuming with all the drying in between steps. I'm sure part of the 'time' is reading the directions to find out what the next step is. I think there is too much black on the card, but I'm not going to change it. Here's my crystal birthday. See, I do have other stamps beside chickens!

Peglar 02-23-2006 12:06 PM

Here is another polish stone I did. I just love that technique.

justampin 02-23-2006 12:19 PM

Came home from work and tackled the the challenge. Like the background and since it's really what the challenge is about I posed. Otherwise, I am not very happy with it. I just borrowed this set from a friend to make a set sampler for March, not sure this will be one of them.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...29535&cat=3448

This one came to me after reading that WendyG only has black for a reinker. Hope it might have even worked in the humor challenge. The sentiment is from a song that always gets stuck in my head.http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=14062
