Here are the cards that I made using this stamp set.  I stamped the icons in Slate pigment ink and colored with our alcohol markers to create the “happy” bright colors.

Joy of Subway Tidings

On Monday I shared a video from CTMH about the stamp of the month for September.  After watching the video myself, I set out to create my cards.  Here are the results.

Subway meets Puddles

Puddle pads are a fun way to get lots of bright color with a snap.  I take a piece of felt, just about an inch or more larger than the stamp I plan to use, and place it in a shallow dish.  Then I choose reinkers in the colors I want.  In this case, I was visiting a friend and these were the only colors close to what I was looking for so I went with it!  Let the colors “run together” a bit on your pad, and then I ink the stamp and stamp on my paper.  You can reuse the puddle pad as many times as you like and even cover it to keep it moist.  Eventually, the colors will all run together and you will have the color of mud…not necessarily attractive for your projects.  Give it a try!
