How to make daubers and ARTplorations blog hop!

Hello Dear Friends! :)

Today, I am giving you the tutorial for how to make daubers at home. The craft hack will save you a lot  and when you need many, this can be an effective solution!

All you need is a Pipe with 1/2 cm diameter and sponge or a felt sheet.

Cut your pipe into smaller pieces and also your sponge sheet.

Fold them into a cylindrical shape and fit into that pipe as above.

Note that, the corners of the sponge should not be pulled out. Also, while sponging with the ink, you can get a grip on those daubbers by putting you finger inside the pipe so that sponging is smooth.

I made 10 of them. Hope you liked this idea? :)


I am so glad to take part in STAMPlorations Blog Hop.

They are featuring ARTplorations stencil and I have used one of them in my card. I have used ARTplorations - Bold Florals.

For the card, I sponged those gorgeous flowers using Salty ocean and Mowed lawn distress ink.
I stamped Bo Bunny script stamp on those flowers and leaves and later colored the blank area using Black soot Distress ink. 
The sentiment is from STAMPlorations - Trendy Feathers stamp set. :)
I am also entering for STAMPlorations Anything Goes

Have fun hopping along!

  4. I never think to stamp a text stamp through the stencil and it's so effective, thank you for the inspiration x Love the colours and your card is really gorgeous x

  5. Love the vibrancy of your card Suchi and super daubers. I always end up using makeup sponges I pick up from the local market. I dislike the foam pads recommended for distressing and the original sponge daubers dont last long so dislike them too!
