The “marker direct to stamp” technique is this week’s challenge at TGIF. I wanted to play along, because this is a great technique, and I don’t use it nearly enough.

I got out my Stampin’ Write Markers and decided on the stamp set I would use, Happy Wishes. 

It’s always exciting using a product for the first time, and this was a first for the Sale-A-Bration, Happy Wishes Stamp Set. I thought it would look pretty using this technique, and it was a red rubber stamp, which gives the best results.  I colored “happy” in rainbow fashion with the brush end, using five different colors of markers. Leaving the stamp flat on the table, I pressed Whisper White cardstock on top of it. I lifted gently, and was “happy” with this technique.


Are you wondering how I came up with the layout for my card? CAS(E) this sketch has an interesting challenge this week. It reminded me of a brick wall, so that’s why I embossed the Whisper White card base with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.

I needed to turn the design upside down to make my words fit properly, but you get the idea. Right?


I layered “happy” on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, stamped “birthday” and “wishes” in Tranquil Tide, and a strip of Washi Tape to complete the sketch. I finished the envelope with a piece of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Tranquil Tide.

Marker Direct to Stamp Technique


The Happy Wishes Stamp Set is great, because it has 16 stamps, all words, that are interchangeable. It’s on page 19 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. I can’t believe I waited this long to use it! It’s available at the store until the end of March. Click on shop, if you want it!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope the “marker direct to stamp” technique gives you some new ideas!
