Reinkers are fabulous, too!

  Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today!  This week for our Fabulous Friday projects we want to share with you different ways to use reinkers/ink refills... not only are they a necessity for keeping your ink pads nice and juicy, but they can be used in a variety of stamping techniques!!  Plus at just $2.95, they're inexpensive and so versatile!  It's a good habit to get into to purchase a reinker at the same time you buy an ink pad... that way you have it when you need it.  And did you know that you can use your Stampin' Up! ink refills to reink your markers?  Just pull out the brush tip carefully and put a few drops down in the barrel of your marker. Replace the tip and store your marker horizontally so the ink can settle between the fine point and brush tip.  Easy, right?!  And now on to our projects...

  Up first is our guest designer (and my talented sister in real life) Cindy Blekas.  She created these stunning cards using reinkers and water to create the backgrounds.  Please check out her blog here to find out exactly how she did it.

  And here is my card featuring the Reinker Background technique.  Like Cindy, I used my reinkers to create a background for my card, but instead of using water my technique features rubbing alcohol.  Please hop over to my blog here to find out how quick and easy this technique is.

  We hope we have given you some fun ideas for using reinkers and that you'll add some to your next order.  You'll be glad you did, especially when you need them for your ink pads, markers and to try these great techniques.  Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by each week!
