WOYWW #183: Re-Inkers

Well, I don't have only re-inkers on my desk this Wednesday, but I've got to admit they're dominating a bit. They're new, you see, and I haven't figured out where to store them yet.

Also notable are a couple of bookmarks, waiting for photography or just to be finished, and a stack of unmounted rubber stamps topped with a "mounted" one. Well, it is mounted, but not on nice foam and lovely wood -- just on a chunk, because it was too big for me to successfully stamp with otherwise.

"Have you got a chunk of wood about three by four inches?" I asked. "No," was the reply, "but I've got a saw." And tah-dah, such a chunk was made. A little glue stick work later, and some rough trimming with the craft knife, and the stamp was, if not beautifully mounted, at least useable.

(You can see one of the attempts at unmounted stamping on the upper right -- rather smudgy in some places and understamped in others.)


  1. Great desk with lots of cool things to play with. Your bookmarks are fabulous. I really need to make some bookmarks. Thank you for the inspiration.

    cheers, rachel #50

  2. lots of goodies on the work desk. Have a great day!

  3. Tee hee. Having power tools is a good thing!

    I like all the washi tape on your desk.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. I have to admit, all my u/m's have Kling-on on them, I have never been happy with 'bare' rubber.Have a great week, Shaz #54

  5. Lots of lovely activity happening on that desk! I'm with Shaz, in that all my unmounted's have cling on them now, but that's all thanks to a lovely blogger who sent me a whole sheet of sticky backed cling foam mount, which is not the technical name of the stuff, but I don't know what is! Once you put that stuff on you can just use any of your acrylic blocks to stamp with it. Anyways, do you love your colorbox reinkers? I just ordered some, my very first, because I wanted to use the cut-n-dry to make my own ink pads so I'm really hoping I love them. And what a lovely load of washi tapes you have! Well, thanks for sharing your workspace. :) Deeyll #122

    1. I need some clingy stuff, that's for sure. I am happy with my reinkers so far -- they're pretty new and I've only used a few of them so far. They certainly seem to re-ink well; I imagine they'd work fairly well to make your own inkpads.

  6. A lot of goodies you've got there to play with! I do hope you have a camera mounted on your ceiling fan, however. I don't want you falling off anything while taking pictures!! Have a great week! Darnell #58
