Default Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Just curious if any of you use SU inks with your RST stamps or if you only use the VersaColors. I have tried using the Colorbox Chalk inks and they are just TOO WET! Any help would be appreciated. TIA

Yes!! I probably have only used stampin up ink with these sets. I use the stamped examples as a guide, but have varied the colors quite a bit. These sets are so fun to play with. The more you add elements and colors--the better they look!! Have fun!!

Default Rubber Stamp Tapestry

I love the RST stamps. I began using the pigment inks as suggested by the site. I find that I get more detail using the dye inks from SU. I have the spots, which makes it very convenient.
Brilliance inks also give a very nice look.

The chalks are too thick, in my opinion. Versafine works well, too, but I don't have enough choices of colors with them.

The finishing touch of the glitter glue really makes a difference.

I put a little "stickles" on a piece of cardboard, and pick it up with a toothpick to apply. I like just a little glitz. This way you don't accidently get a glob of stickles. You could use any kind of glitter.

I find this very relaxing. Every card is a little different. Eileen

Eileen,
Thanks...I, too have the Stampin' Spots in the dye ink....so now I'm going to 'play' with the 3 sets of RST stamps that I have...with another one on the way! Don't know why I didn't just experiment, but....I love these sets.

I only have four of the VersaColor cubes (a gift with one of the sets), but now that I know that I can use the SU spots...I'm in heaven!!!

I also learned, in case you didn't know....that using the Coluzzle is an easy way to make the wreaths symmetrical. I really don't have a problem with circle wreaths, but when it comes to squares or ovals....I'm a dunce! The Coluzzle makes it easy! Again, a 'Duh! moment'.

Thanks again ladies for all the encouragement....now, off to 'play'!!!!

I saw the coluzzle demonstrated at a convention this weekend. Beautiful! I have the coluzzle, and didn't know how to use it. I will be playing with it this week.

Rubber Stamp Tapestry is a company that makes "'peg stamps". They are beautiful, and you stamp each flower, leaf, etc, so there is no coloring. Eileen

I like using Marvy le Plume markers on glossy card to achieve a nice and crisp image.

Here's an example:

Those peg stamps are great fun and very versatile. Very useful when making mini-cards, gift tags and any other small items.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm going to try the markers and glossy paper next. Why didn't I think of that?? Eileen
