Christmas is quickly approaching so I have stocking stuffers on my mind. I knew the instant I saw the Deer Friends stamp set from Joy Clair it would make a perfect little magnetic playset. I have been saving magnetic sheets from my die purchases just for this purpose.
Time: 45 minutes
Stamp two of each animal on magnetic sheets using Jet Black StazOn Ink.
Carefully color the images using alcohol markers of your choice. Avoid touching the stamped lines with the markers as the alcohol in the markers will react with the StazOn ink. This can be used to your advantage though; if you use a brush-tipped marker you can pull a small amount of the Jet Black StazOn ink into the colored areas to create a shadow effect. Trim the excess magnet from the images and set aside.
Rub desired color(s) of StazOn ink over scraps of the magnetic sheets; stamp the accessories using Jet Black StazOn ink. Trim and set aside.
Affix Tear It! Tape to the top and bottom of the candy tin.
Remove the backing paper from the tape and adhere a piece of pattern paper to the lid and bottom respectively.
Trim away excess paper; sand the edges for a clean finish.
Rub Chocolate Brown StazOn Pigment ink directly from the pad or using a sponge dauber along the edges of the tin and paper. Trace and cut inserts for the inside of the tin. Affix these inserts using Tear It! Tape. It’s time to enjoy!
