Take a Tip Tuesday

Since StampinUp! came out with foam pads I've had a love 

hate affair with them. 

While they are really juicy and give great ink coverage on stamps,

I don't like using them for sponging. 

I just didn't get the same effect that I did with the felt pads. 

I solved the problem the other day. 

I took a window sheet and inked it up on the foam pad. 

After pulling the sheet away from the ink I was left with plenty of ink.

I used a sponge to pick up the ink from the sheet then used that to sponge the

edges of the card. 

I sponged the edges of the layer with Blackberry Bliss. 

Stamp set Lotus Blossom. 

I also used the new Painted Blooms Cotton Twine. Love that stuff!

Its so soft! 

Tomorrow I have an appointment with the ortho doctor. We are

going to discuss the knee replacement. Wish me luck!
