You can make a marker with the ink out of SU! (or any brand, I suppose)blender pens?

I won a reinker at my demo's Holiday Open house and she told me you can do it by just adding the ink to the tip of the pen! Ingenious! :biglaugh:

If you don't have alcohol inks and you have reinkers, you can get the polished stone look with them for your cards. Just take a cotton ball with some rubbing alcohol and a couple of reinkers.

Diaper wipe stripes is another fun thing to do with reinkers.

Ornaments... rinse out the inside of your ornament and drop 7-10 drops, depending on the size of your ornaments. Coat the inside and after it dries, add glitter (Dazzling Diamonds is really pretty) and shake, shake, shake, it up so that the glitter spreads and clings.

Really pretty is embossing on white cardstock with versamark and clear EP. Take a paintbrush and wet down the cardstock with the embossed image. Then take the paintbrush and pick up a drop of reinker and brush it onto the cardstock. The water on the cardstock will dilute the ink from the paintbrush and spread out. You can help it along. Dry with heat gun.

And you can add drops from your reinker into a bottle cap and with the right combination of the reinker and a wet brush (aquabrush), you can make watercolors!

Just a few more suggestions to get the most out of your new reinker!

Re-Inkers are little bottles of ink that you can use to moisten your ink pad when it starts to dry out. :D

I often use my blender pens to color this way, but instead of using the ink from the re-inker, I touch the tip of the blender pen to an ink pad. It works great. Just make sure you get all of one color off before you touch another color with the pen. One of my yellow inks has a little red dot in the middle of it because I didn't do that.

Judy- What a great idea- my blender pens dried out, so I was going to pitch them. I'll have to try your tip. Christina

Hello Ladies,

Did know that if you u squeeze your stampin up ink pad together when it is closed you will get some ink in the lid and then you don't have to put your blender pens straight onto ink pad its self, instead you can just use what is in the lid.

Another great idea is to use you blender pens with the stampin up pastels these are also great.
