I bought this set last year, and it never saw any ink. I really wanted to use it for a card buffet, so the design needed to be simple without a lot of coloring.
- Use Tear and Tape or Scor-Tape (I used Scor-Tape because I have some that's 1/8" wide) to adhere the glimmer paper strips.
- Add a glue dot behind the bow to keep it in place.
- Save some stamping time by placing the tree stamp and the greeting on one large block. The bird and snowman can also be stamped at the same time. I actually used my MISTI which made it pretty easy.
- The fine tip of our markers tend to dry out faster than the brush tip. For a quick fix, squeeze some ink on the the lid of a stamp pad that's the same color. Dip the fine tip in the ink and you'll get just enough to fill in tiny areas like these.
