Pins and Magnets

Hi Again;

Splitcoast Stampers has so many great tutorials on it, and for today's post I used Altered Game Pieces to make magnets and pins.

I started out with some Dominoes, which I bought at Target, at a very reasonable price.

Then I bought some magnets and jewellry pins at Michaels (SU doesn't sell these items) and blew the dust off my glue gun. and started stamping.

I used my Sanding Blocks to sand the smooth side of the Domino. I stamped the image with StazOn, colored with sharpies, and then sprayed with Acrylic Sealant.

After I stamped this one I covered it with VersaMark and embossed it with Iridescent Ice.  It looks great, but I found the embossed Iridescent Ice chipped off.

Ink:  StazOn, Sharpies
Stamp Set:  Wishing You Cheer (retired)
Accessories:  Acrylic Sealant, Magnets, Pins

  1. Patience, Patience, Patience.  You need to be sure things are dry between steps and before spraying with the sealant; I used my heat tool.
  2. When spraying with the acrylic be sure you have your spray can several inches away from your domino, or the ink might run.

I hope you enjoy my post today.
