In a cleaning frenzy I was about to toss out all the ink pads that were not working that great anymore. Before I did, I tested them by stamping the pad directly on paper… and loved the result! So, don’t throw them away just yet, they are perfect for staining wrapping paper & edge painting envelopes and cards! (PS – For more wrapping paper ideas, check out our tutorials here and here!)
Use the stamp pad as a stamp by pushing it directly onto the paper. Make sure you have time to let the paper dry.
edge painted cards and envelopes: hold the cards (or envelopes) tight together and swipe the edges through the ink pad.
Now, go get out those ink pads!
