Non Candy Valentines for Classroom: Stamping with Dye Ink

by | December 27th, 2016 | Comments Off on Non Candy Valentines for Classroom: Stamping with Dye Ink

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a set of non candy valentines. The schools in my area have put a stop to all sweet treats for birthdays and holidays. I’ve swapped out the more traditional piece of candy for some glow sticks, which my kids love to receive all year round, and an inspirational message. I chose ColorBox® Dye Ink for this card design because of the bold and bright color choices as well as the fast drying time. I couldn’t resist adding a touch of glitter for some extra sparkle, but that step is totally optional.

Use dye ink to stamp brightly colored non candy valentines for the classroom. These sparkly glow stick cards will make everyone forget about candy!

Supplies for Making Non Candy Valentines:

ColorBox® Premium Dye Ink
Twinkle Dust by Donna Salazar
Glue Gloss
Teresa Collins Diamond Wood Mount Stamp
Note Cards
Sentiment Stamp
Glow Stick Bracelets
Hole Punch

Non Candy Valentines for the Classroom: Stamping with ColorBox Premium Dye Ink - Check out Dana's quick tutorial here!

Step One: Stamp the top half of the note cards with a sentiment stamp and several fun colors of dye ink. Note: I used ColorBox® Color Pop Premium Dye Ink by Susan K. Weckesser in Ice and ColorBox© Premium Dye Ink Minis by Stephaine Barnard in Guava and Grape for my cards. I also started with a store-bought box of foil-edged note cards to save time.

Step Two: Ink the Teresa Collins Wood Mount Diamond Stamp with ColorBox© Gold Color Pop Premium Dye Ink by Susan K. Weckesser and stamp the bottom portion of each card. Note: I chose a gold ink for this step to compliment the gold foil edge of my note cards, but you can use any color of ink here.
