French Stamping Love!



I was shopping in Michael's Craft Store 
(for my 4th trip this week)
and I made a fantastic new discovery....
(this is not a paid advertisement)


 and these...


and these!


Some of you that are big into stamping may know all about this...But I had never seen this ink before...
and check this out!...


 StazOn really stays on!
I tried it on fabric.... it worked great!
I even ran it through the washer and dryer too!
(they tell you it is not for fabric, maybe it runs... but it didn't!)


 I tried it on wood... another score!


Check out the detail, it doesn't run! And the
image is really bold!
Don't you think this would look great on an old crate?
Much easier than stenciling... 
and the stamp images are sooo cool!
Next I tried it on ceramic... this was the big test...


It was a little slippery stamping on the round cup...


But hellooooo, it works great!
I absolutely love the way this comes out...


 Now the package says... and I quote...
"Appropriate for all surfaces. Designed especially for use on plastic, metal, glass, ceramic, laminated paper, coated paper, and leather. (Not recommended for fabric)"
Dries in 3-5 minutes on non-porous surfaces.
I would however, not put the printed cup in the dishwasher!


But I will certainly be trying this out on all of the 
above surfaces... My mind is going a mile-a-minute
trying to think of what to try next....
Stay tuned for the exciting other places I used this ink!

  7. I love the mugs! I have some of that ink at home and I had a custom stamp made for my ETSY shop. I stamp the bottom or back of my items. It works good on plastics, but like you said it slides a bit.

  13. Those have come out really well.
    I discovered at Christmas that Stazon won't stay on duct tape, but so far it is the only thing I have found it doesn't work on.

  32. Those are great stamps. This post gave me an idea to decorate my husband's French press. :) Thank you for linking this up to my Weekend Warrior party. It has taken me awhile to get around to visiting everyone but I am so thrilled to have people join in the fun and I hope to see you again next week! :)

  34. Cute mugs! I saw a similar idea but it used a stencil and a sharpie, she baked the mugs afterward to 'set' the ink. I'd still wash the mugs by hand to be on the safe side.

  35. I'm stealing yet another idea of yours; thank you for being a font of fantastic inspiration!

  36. Thought I would look around awhile till I came to something I didn't fancy.... been about 15 minutes and it's looking like I'm gonna have to read every single project you've done!
