DIY sponger daubers

Greetings crafty friends! Today I am sharing with you a video I made to show how to make your own sponge daubers.

Here's a picture of a card I stamped the typewriter in black and then used my diy sponge dauber to put some CTMH Desert Sand ink inside the stamped image to give it both color and texture. You can see the difference because I only used the sponge dauber with ink on the left side of the typewriter image. Unfortunately, this stamp set is now retired, but I do have an extra one for purchase from me for $5 plus shipping. Please contact me, if you are interested. 
Here's the finished card! I think the sponging gives a vintages look to the card.

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Melissa, awesome tip for sponge daubers! You asked me about that snowflake. It's a clear acrylic One I got from funky junkie and I added some glitter to it. Thanks for the wonderful comment!
