Classic ink, StazOn ink or Momento ink?
THAT is the question!!
So I have some rather important info for you to read and understand.
Do you recall that I have always told you that I use StazOn ink for ALL my black stamping? (with the recent exception of Momento for Blendabilities Markers.)
Well, I found out recently that's NOT the best idea–at least not for Photopolymer stamps/at least not with MY stamping habits….
If you use StazOn ink with your Photopolymer stamps, you should clean them off well as soon as you're done stamping with them.
If you don't, you can damage your stamps.
Stampin' Up! suggests using the Classic Black ink with Photopolymer….it has been reformulated to take away the purple color I've always mentioned I don't like.
However, this reformulation has caused it to not dry well on Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock. And they are still working on a solution. (It dries just fine on our colored, more porous cardstock.)
THAT'S a problem for me, because I stamp most of my greetings IN black ON Whisper White or Very Vanilla. And USUALLY my stamps/ink are being used in a big club or class, so they don't get cleaned right away.
The answer SU! has given–until the black is corrected–is to use the Momento ink with Photopolymer on the White or Vanilla.
Please make this change: either CLEAN RIGHT AWAY! or use Momento ink for your black photopolymer stamping!
I don't want you to damage your stamps!!
Ok, now that THAT'S out of the way, I have some Photopolymer stamping to share with you!!!
We made this card at my Flower Patch class last night:
I CASE'd it from Pinterest.
You can buy Flower Patch as a bundle with coordinating Framelits or separately.
This bundle is a MUST HAVE!!
Have a fabulous night!!
Now I have to go get ready for my trip.
(Did you remember I leave for Washington DC tomorrow?!?!)
