The versatility of stamps and ink is the best part of my everyday. When it comes to making beautiful cards or wedding invitations the sky is the limit. I wanted to see how the new StazOn pigment would work on various handmade papers that I often use for invitations and there’s no surprise that this ink is made for so much more than the ordinary. Take a look at what I stamped on this invitation all using this amazing ink.
Skill: Beginner Time: 30 minutes
Print the details of the invitation on smooth foiled handmade paper and trim to the desired size. Mine measures 5 x 7”.
Next, I stamped a small little flower randomly all over the printed invitation using StazOn in Snowflake. It’s there and looks amazing but hard to see on a photo.
Trim a piece of acetate the same size as the invitation details and stamp a lace border at the bottom and the same small flower as previously on the top half of the acetate piece.
Use the same small flower and stamp it onto your silk ribbon using the StazOn Pigment. This was my best discovery that it stamped perfectly, was dry instantly and looks amazing.
Layer a handmade piece of textured paper at the bottom, then the invitation details portion, handmade silk paper with the stamped acetate on top of it all. Adhere the paper pieces together with On Point Glue using a small drop only.
Punch 2 holes at the top of the layered stack and tie with the stamped ribbon into a bow.
All the stamped layers look so amazing on top of each other and this ink worked on all the surfaces I tried and tested – and the end result is simply exquisite.
Today, I share with you a fun bubble gum theme birthday card using StazOn Pigment ink and the new Sheer Shimmer Stix. This theme features a simple gumball machine stamp and a fun candy pattern cardstock. I love the new StazOn Pigment ink as you can stamp on so many glossy surfaces. However, today I show you how fabulous it is on dark cardstock such as this lovely chocolate brown. Most of the time I reach for embossing powder for dark card, but not anymore, StazOn Pigment Snowflake works FABULOUSLY!
Have you tried the new StazOn Pigment Inks yet? They are amazing and work great to stamp on plastics like acetate for shaker cards. I also used it to stamp on Imagines Vertigo to make some pretty butterflies.
To see how I created my shaker card watch my video below. Enjoy!
Hi everyone! I’m excited to share a new ink line – StazOn Pigment with you today. While you can stamp on acetate, metal, glass and other non-porous surfaces with this ink, I decided to show you how easy and perfect it is to use StazOn Pigment with vellum. It dries super quickly (like almost instantly) on vellum, and that’s super impressive! I love how this is the *only* pigment ink that dries so fast on paper as well. If you enjoy using pigment inks, you must check this out!
StazOn ink is a solvent ink that can be used on plastic, glass, metal, paper, and a host of mixed media surfaces and ephemera. So it is natural to assume that it might damage your stamps. We asked Nadine to talk a little bit about why StazOn is totally safe to use with any stamp set!
Mixed media cards do not always have to be bulky. I used several different techniques and mediums like Fireworks! Spray, irRESIStible Pico Embellishers and StazOn Ink on my card, yet the card is still flat enough to put in an envelope and mail to a friend. Watch my video below to see how I did it. Enjoy!
