Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts challenge #272


I have been very remiss lately.  Normally, especially at Christmas, I use Crumb Cake CS, but I haven't used it in quite a while, so I decided that this would be the time. I love white on Crumb cake. You can use the SU white pad, but it is a pad meant for embossing, so it doesn't dry very quickly, and it sinks into the paper and gets lighter in color.   So, not wanting to emboss this time, I used the Staz-On white.  Warning: if you use this pad, be very sure NOT to allow water on it before starting to use the Staz-On stamp cleaner!  Otherwise, you will never get all the white off your stamps.  The Staz-on Black comes off very nicely with the cleaner, but even with that the white doesn't like to come off very well. I took to using an old toothbrush after applying the cleaner and scrub good before washing it all offf.

I am really loving the Thinlit words that are out now. They made such a difference and allow for more creativity.

I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Lynn, your card is lovely. Thanks for sharing the best way to stamp and clean with the white. That white on the Crumb Cake looks country elegant. I liked it a lot.
