There's A Card Thursday - November 27, 2014 - Blendabilities Marbling Card

I hope you are all having a great Thanksgiving.  I am so thankful for a lot of things - my family, my faith and my friends. I just would like to take a few seconds to be thankful for everything I have and had.

Today on There's A Card Thursday I promised to use the Blendability Marbling Technique so I have done that.  I had to make a sympathy card one of my Uncles died and I need to send them a card.  When I was growing up we would spend summers with them.  My cousins and I would play on their farm and work in the fields, I loved my time spent with them.  I will be sad not being able to visit him and wish I could go back for the services but they are Sunday and the flights this week are really expensive.  So I will think happy thoughts of my time with him.

For Uncle Sonny

Grandma's Rocking Chair - November 23, 2014 - Markers or Stamp Pads (Repeat)

I had a few questions at my Craft Fair this weekend about Stamp Pads or Markers so I thought I would repeat my Grandma's Rocking Chair on that subject.

Grandma's Rocking Chair question - I am a new stamper Should I buy ink pads or Markers?

You have two great options for ink and they are just as good.  A little different but still as good.

The Stamp Pad

Use for - Stamping, sponging, direct to paper background, water coloring, and many other techniques.

Pros - Great for stamping, quick way to ink up stamps, consistent color, great coverage, can refill with out any problems.

Cons - expensive compared to markers, hard to get more than one color on a stamp, tricky to open and close.

The Stampin' Write Markers

Use for - Stamping, applying more than one color to a stamp, splatter background, writing on the card. Highlighting, running edge of cardstock many other techniques.

Pros - Great for stamping when you want to use more than one color on a stamp, Cheaper than a stamp pad so you can get more colors, Smaller so storage is easier.

Cons - hard to refill, I am prone to lose them if I don't keep them in their box, takes a little more time to ink up a stamp.
The Flowers on this one were done with Markers and the saying and oval with a pad.

So what would I get if I were starting out again.  I think I would get the markers.  For a new stamper they have more versatility than the pads and since they are less expensive you can get more of the colors.  I would say buy at least one color family and the Markers you use the most then buy them in  pads.  Some I do not use very much and getting pads are not really cost effective if I have the marker.

I hope this helped.  If you have any stamping or paper crafting questions please leave a comment or e-mail me at marysstamping at
