MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Stamp in color. To add Real Red to the words “Never Made” I first stamped the image in  Night of Navy and took a q-tip and soaked it in Stampin’ Mist and gently learned the ink off the words Never Made. I used the Real Red Stampin’ Marker to re-color it. I huffed into the stamp and almost passed out (LOL)…it’s a very large stamp. It was worth it! Yes, it takes a little more work to make a dual colored image, but they look so gorgeous! You got try it next time.
