Misting with Alcohol Markers
One of the first things new stampers learn is how to add color to stamped images with markers. It's generally done with water-based markers but with the popularity of alcohol based markers, why not try those, too? Gina Krupsky is back with a quick how-to.
Supplies you'll need for this project
  • Stamps
  • Card stock
  • Alcohol markers
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Misting bottle
  • DIY Monogram Stampers
    Just in time to start planning for back-to-school and holiday gifts, JustRite DIY Monogram Stampers. They're well-suited for timeless monograms or short messages, easy to use, and very versatile.
    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Jeannette asked: "I am looking for instructions to do lattice folding. Do we need a die for this? This technique looks very interesting; I can not find it on the web site anywhere."
    A: When looking for instructions for techniques or projects that we don't have a tutorial for yet, try searching the forums. Go to the Techniques Forum, click on "search this forum" and type in what you are looking for. There are many threads that will come up when you search for lattice.
    The technique looks difficult, but it's pretty easy. Just cut diagonal lines into the fold of your card front and then fold them over. Have fun!

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Gigi has a suggestion for the stamping on tile tutorial: "After stamping the tile, I set my oven to 300 degrees and put them on foil and let them go for about 20 minutes and took them out. I cooled them for about 45 minutes to make sure they didn't burn anything."
