Tuesday Tip - How to remove ink "smudges"

One of yesterday's cards gave me the perfect opportunity to share one of my favourite crafty non Stampin' Up! little workhorses...

Something that gets used for virtually every set of class projects I have ever made!!

Something that saves me from extended periods of screams in the craft room!

Something I just wouldn't be without in my little craft bag!

Look at the picture above... spot that smudge of Cherry Cobbler ink to the left hand side above the filigree border image...

Now look at the one below... and yes it has totally vanished!

Use a Sand Eraser to remove those booboos!!
Tombow do one, readily available on Amazon ... and I suggest you get the dual-ended Sand & Rubber eraser as then you have a "rubber" for both jobs- in-one...

PS the link to Amazon above is not an affiliate link or anything that I would get any benefit from... but it is the easiest way to show you what I mean!! But please do your own research for the best value offer available when you want to purchase!..

PPS There are lots of alternative ink erasers by other manufacturers... but mine is a Tombow one... and so I can't comment on how good the other brands are... but the Tombow one is


  1. Any idea whether this works on glue booboos? My sister is jealous of my retired adhesive remover and I need to find something to appease her! Thanks x

    1. Hi Claire
      No not a solution for glue boo boos... the adhesive remover is the guy for that!

      But a solution for you... cut your adhesive remover in half! And share! Will last you both years... your SIL will love you...
