Molding Mats

Clearsnap has some amazing tools in their arsenal and I've discovered how awesome the Memory Essential Get Rollin Wheel is. This wheel has a sticky backing (much like you'd use on an acrylic block to mount your stamps before stamping. I decided to add a Molding Mat to the Memory Essential Get Rollin Wheel to create some fun patterns for the background of my card.

This is how the mat looks when adhered to the wheel. Try playing with assorted stamps for different looks.

I inked the mat with Mermaid Archival Dye Ink and rolled across my paper, reinking as needed to complete the background.

I then turned the paper 180 degrees and inked with Robin's Egg Pigment Ink.

Then I turned the paper again and inked the wheel with Silver Pigment Ink.

I then cut my pattern paper to size, and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, inking the raised areas with Canary Pigment Ink. This really brought the words to life.

To finish my card, I added an image from PaperLoft which I first inked with Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink.

This is such a fun tool to play with. I'm thinking about all the fun patterns I'll be able to create with my stamp stash!!!

  1. oh wow this looks really neat. I've never tried this technique but, I think it came out neat.

    The best part about it is you can color co ordinate it to what ever colors that you need.

  2. Love the colors you chose! Using white ink to bring out the scoring is a new technique for me - I like it.
