Classic Stampin' Spot Techniques

Classic Stampin’ Spot Techniques

Classic Stampin’ Spot Techniques

The new Classic Stampin’ Spots Assortment on page 147 of the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog is the perfect little ink collection for you. With eight colors from Basic Gray to Granny Apple Green, the lovely array of colors hits the spot.

Here are some fun techniques to prove that some of the best things come in tiny packages.

  • Block Background: Use the spot as a stamp. Turn it over and apply it directly to the paper for the cutest card on the block.
  • Tasteful Texture: To mimic the wood grain of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, swipe the spot across the stamps instead of pressing the stamp to the ink.
  • Layered Colors: Use the Stamparatus and apply the darkest colors around the edges of the image. Stamp. Then clean the stamp and apply a lighter color in the center. Stamp again to create the look of a multicolored markered image.
These Stampin' Spots are a great way to a bunch of colors.  They are great for travel and a space saver if you don't have the room for the bigger ink pads.  They also work great with the Stamparatus as you don't get extra ink around the edges.  All you need to go with them is the refill.

Speaking of refills - some of them may not be available in June.  The manufacturer of the ink refill bottles has been prioritizing the production of medical products. There may be lots of delays and back orders because of Covid-19.
