Using my Stash Almost all SU!


I am still trying to use up these SU! dps. I made 3 cards like this today. I still have plenty of the dp, but I ran out of the pink cs (Regal Rose, I think). I ran the yellow cs through my paisley embossing folder.
I used my SU! Many Marvelous Markers to stamp with. I do not own any SU! ink pads; just the set of markers. Sue had a 50% off sale on them ~1 1/2 years ago. This was a good investment for me. Now I can coordinate my stamping colors regardless of the dp without the expense and storage problems of ink pads and reinkers. I find that I use these all the time! I rarely even go to my ink pads anymore (which I have plenty of, but they are not SU!, and too much trouble to try to find a match.)
I used my white gel pen to draw dots above and below the "Enjoy" stamp. I mounted the entire panel on dimensionals. The only non-SU! item is the base card...can you guess? It's DCWV :)

You do such a nice job of putting these together! One of the reasons I use SU card stock almost exclusively is because I just KNOW the inks will match perfectly. And the DS papers. And the ribbons....

I do love the markers, though. Yep - you can pretty much use just them, and no ink pads. I have had mine for 5 years, and they are still going strong!

The various textures used in the card are outstanding! I love the colors--you are an original!
