Eggs and Alcohol Ink

Last time my daughter was home we colored Easter eggs and took it to a whole new level.  I bought the inexpensive plastic ones in two sizes thinking it would be fun to play around with alcohol inks.  And boy, I wasn't wrong, it was so much fun we couldn't stop.

They all turned out just lovely.

They are much more vibrant in person.

We took a dauber with a little alcohol on it, added the ink and went to town daubing away.

It was more fun than a barrow of monkeys.

Two sizes.


My friend Becky came a day early and she showed me know to make these black magic cards.
They are so much fun if you like to color.  First they are stamped, embossed with white embossing powder and then the fun begins.  Just take out your colored pencils and color away.

I have mine colored but not made into cards yet, so I'll post mine when they are finished. If I remember.


Stampin' Up Event

Just in case you missed it, this is what you missed out on.
We made some adorable little bags. They can be Easter baskets, May Day bags or just a fun little everyday bag.
                                            Inside of the bag.

We made a cute little pop up card that fits perfectly into an envelope for mailing.
We made  a note card and even remembered to decorate the envelope.
This was a quick and easy simple simon card.  We made a thank you card as I think everyone should be sending more thank you cards.
We put a little something inside as well.
 This one is my favorite.  We used the masking technique and remembered to decorate the inside and the envelope.


Just Playing with weird stuff

I came across a roll of silver tape in one of my drawers and I'm absolutely certain that I bought it with something grand in mind but I don't remember buying it and it's moved with me twice so it's time to do something with it.
I first cut off a piece and ran it through my Big Shot using an embossing folder. That turned out pretty cool, now hmmm what else can I do with it.
I pulled out a stamp set and stamped a couple of cars.  You can get coordinating dies for this stamp set so I cut them out, interesting look, now I may have to try cutting out some gears just for fun.


Country Floral Embossing Folder

Here is another Stampin' Up item that is free with a 50.00 during the sale-a-bration event.

Here it is on white cardstock.

 This on is on yellow cardstock and I inked the embossing folder with crumb cake ink before I ran it through the big shot.

 These are white cardstock with highland heather ink.
