Reinking Stampin’ Up! Markers and Ink Pads

Are your Markers drying out?  Is the ink from your Ink Pads getting lighter or uneven in color?  Watch this Video and learn to reink both your Markers and Ink Pads.  It is pretty quick.

I made this video two years ago.  One of my Markers needed reinking at a recent event and I could not remember how to reink it.  So here is the video so we can all take care of these coloring tools and get great results every time.

This video is about 8 minutes long.

SUPPLIES:
Stampin’ Up! Ink Pad with ink refill in the same color
Stampin’ Up! Marker with ink refill in the same color
Tweezers
Needle Nose Pliers
NOTES:
~I laid printer paper on top of a Silicone Craft Sheet to keep the ink from soaking through to my desktop.
~You use the same technique to reink the 2018 NEW Ink Pads.
~DO NOT reink Stampin’ Blends Markers with regular ink refills.  Blends are Alcohol Markers.  Stampin’ Up! does not sell ink refills for them.  You will just need to buy a new marker. Luckily they are sold individually.

TIPS:
1.  Use the larger Brush Tip of your Marker and color with the side NOT the tip.  If you color with the Marker Tip you will damage your Marker.
2.  When you are finished coloring your stamp, open you mouth wide and blow while moving the stamp in front of your mouth.  Do this 5-6 times to remoisten the ink.  (You can always pretend you are the Big Bad Wolf and are huffing and puffing to blow the house down.  Open wide!)
3.  The coloring process is the same for both Rubber and Photopolymer stamps.
4.  DO NOT use Stampin’ Blends to color your stamps as they will damage your stamps!!!!
