Good morning!

I’m the Monday morning hostess at The House That Stamps Built. It’s my turn to share a Project of the Week with all of you. Today, I chose Inking with Finger Daubers for my tutorial.

For this tutorial, I’m using these Repeat Impressions stamps:
6201-L Triple Cats
8210-F No Ordinary Cats

First, gather your supplies. You will need a few inks, a few finger daubers, and a fun stamp.

Using a finger dauber, ink up the first cat, being sure not to ink up any of the other parts of the stamp.

Stamp the first image, and repeat the process on the second cat, using a different ink and dauber.

Here is what it looks like. As you can see, I got a bit of ink on the ‘framework’ of the stamp.
No worries!

Repeat the process using a third dauber and ink color.

At this point, the cats were ‘masked’ using some scraps of post it notes. Once all of the masks were in place, I daubed black ink on the frame.

Before stamping, careful and quickly remove the scaps of post it notes.
You can see in the image below, that only the frame has ink on it.

Here’s what it looks like with all Post-It’s removed.
