Today I'm going to share two items that I think are must haves in your craft room.
1) Inkssentials non-stick Craft Sheet - This 15” x 18” reusable, protective Non-Stick Craft Sheet from Ranger is the answer to all your craft surface needs! Nothing sticks to it or penetrates its surface! The slick, non-porous material withstands high temperatures and repels liquids. It’s perfect for use when stamping, embossing, ironing, painting, baking, and using Ranger’s Melting Pot. Embossing powders, inks, candle wax, soap chips, paint, hot glue and even solder won’t penetrate or distort its smooth-as-glass finish. Any excess melted product, once cooled, can be easily peeled off. Clean-up is quick and easy, so the Craft Sheet can be used again and again.
For years I used my computer paper as scrap paper on my desk. I was forever changing the paper due to glue and ink all over it not to mention the 8 1/2 x 11 paper was never big enough. I always had ink on my desk! It took me a long time but when I finally got one...there will be no going back.
Deborah's price on these are $16.00.
2) Inkssentials™ Blending Tool & Foam - Use the Inkssentials™ Ink Blending Tool™ and Foam for mess-free ink application on paper projects!
I love using this tool with the craft mat. I have to admit I was a big fan of the Stampin' Up sponges and honestly thought nothing could compare to them but I was wrong.
When using these start by inking up the sponge and before you apply it to your papercraft project rub the sponge in a circular motion on your craft mat first. Then continue the circular motion onto your project. This will help the color to be more graduated on your project. If you ink up directly onto the sponge and apply directly to your paper you will get dark and blotchy areas. This is fine if that was your intent in the first place!
Deborah's price on each of these is $5.50.
I've also seen where people keep a different color sponge for each color of ink that they have. Saves washing them out all the time. I must try that as I have enough individual foams.
You can hop over to Marilyn's (shares on Fridays) or Deborah's (share's on Mondays) blog to see what their favorite products are.
For a chance to win some blog candy be sure to leave a comment on this post. For more details and a chance to still comment on last weeks post click here.
Thursday I'll add a post of some of the blog candy as well as a card to share.
Have a great day and if you get a chance to go to the craft fair in Halifax be sure to find Deborah with Fargo Cat Shops. She will have some great product there! Can't make it but want something...call 902-923-2835.
