I bought 2 packs of napkins at Party City and started stamping away! I used the purple Staz-On ink pad which works amazingly well. I accidently got some water on one and the ink did exactly what it’s supposed to do…NOT BLEED! For 250 napkins, ink pad, and clear stamps I spent $20. This is a perfect project to work on while you are watching tv at night.

Thanks! I bought the ink and stamps at Hobby Lobby, but you can also find it at other local craft stores (Michaels, Joann’s, etc). The clear stamps come in an assorted pack of different things related to Love. If you have never used a clear stamp before, you will also need to buy the clear acrylic mounting block base for it. I thought it was expensive when I bought it for another project a year ago, but it has been a lifesaver and I’ve used it several times. The cool thing about the clear stamps is that 1) they aren’t messy, and 2) if you don’t stamp a section well, you can reink the section you need redone and you can realign by looking through the acrylic base to restamp the section that wasn’t good.

Hmm, I tried using the Staz On ink on the Party City napkins and the ink bled as it dried, so the wording on my stamp was almost unreadable. I wound up using non-waterproof ink from ColorBox and it looked a million times better. They’ll probably bleed when wet, but at least they’re readable.
I wonder what the deal was for me.
