Homemade stamp pad and PPA 196

PPA196


I can't believe that I haven't posted anything this month yet. I have been stamping just not posting,. I wish it was easier to post!!!  I was looking at the challenges that I enjoy working on and decided that the Pals Paper Arts would be the one I'd join for this sample. 

I made my own stamp pad... with felt!!! I saw this on Pintrest and decided to give it a try. I LOVE this it is so easy and works much quicker that inking the stamp with markers!    Give it a try!               First  choose a stamp that is solid or mostly filled (Sample of each below)
Second  ink your desired stamp with Stazon and stamp on the felt  (my stazon needs reinking but this doesn't matter since it is perminent ink and won't bleed, clean stamp.
Third take your reinkers and apply the ink over the stazon in desired place  (picture on right)
Forth using this "colored"felt as the stamp pad -      ink and stamp -  this can be done multiple times,   I inked and stamped 40 pieces of white cardstock with out reinking!!!             
Stamp Set: You are loved (reitred)
