Sharing magnets I made for an upcoming vendor fair I'm participating in with one of my favorite stampin' Sisters, Darlene. If you live in the Chicagoland area, please stop by! It's on April 4th. Details are here.
For the past 2 or 3 years, when I buy Stampin' Up! brand stamps, I do not mount them. Instead I peel the rubber image off and attach it to EZMount. After 6 years of being adicted to stamping, it's all about space for me! I use the wood blocks for magnets or other projects.
- For the vegetables and fruits , I stamped on the block using black ink. The stamps come with a really nice color sheet that can be used as a guide for coloring. I painted each piece using acrylic paint. I let them dry and then added sparkle paint to the leaves.
- The flowers are freehand. After painting them, I outlined to make them pop (and cover up any mistakes :o)). Some of the folkArt paints come in tubes with a fine tip, which makes it easy to outline.
- I used a strong adhesive to attach the magnets the wood. Before gluing my magnets, I attached them to the frig to make sure I glued the right side to the block. :o) I mark the side away from the frig.
