TIPsy Tuesday - Removing Glitter from Ink Pads

Tis the season for all things glittery!  And also the season to get glitter where you don't want it to be like on your ink pads.  In doing this card, I got some silver embossing powder on my distress ink pad.  Removing it is very easy.

Press tape down on the ink pad and lift off the glitter.


Project Notes for card:

  • I did the background using Jennifer McGuire's method of inking and then spritzing an acrylic block.  The ink is then transferred to watercolor paper. See the videos on Thinking Inking at for more info.
  • After the bacground dried, the snowflakes were stamped and embossed with American Crafts Zing silver powder.
  • The ribbon is white organza from the fabric department at Hoby Lobby.  I folded it over and cinched it with some string.  Then the brad holds everything in place.
