Good morning, everyone! I'm so excited to bring you this card today. Just look what you can do with those beautiful Ribbon Rosettes that come in the Occasions Mini Catalog! You can DYE them any color of the rainbow! It's quick and easy and oh, so beautiful!
Today's card is one I created for this week's Utah Divas International Color Challenge. The colors are Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla. Click HERE to view the other Design Team cards and to enter your card in this week's challenge!
Now, on to those Ribbon Rosettes! To dye your flowers, simply put a tiny bit of water in a plastic container and add a few drops of Stampin' Up! reinker in your choice of colors. The more color you add, the deeper the shade of your finished rosettes.
The Rosettes are originally Very Vanilla so they take the color really well. I used tweezers to swirl mine around in the colored water. I suppose that if you leave them in the water longer, they will be an ever richer, darker shade of the color that you're hoping to make them.
Once you're satisfied with the color and they are completely coated, lift them out and place them on a paper towel. Let them dry overnight and they are ready to pop on any card, scrapbook page or 3-D item as a beautiful, and colorful, embellishment. I used Crystal Effects to attach mine to today's card -- those babies aren't going anywhere -- they are secure!
The stamp set for this card is Just Believe (one of my all-time favorites). Other supplies and embellishments used include the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals. 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon in Baja Breeze, the Scallop Border Punch and the Extra Large Decorative Label Punch. I stamped out my sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, punched it out and then attached it to another scrap of Always Artichoke cardstock. Using my Paper Snips, I very carefully trimmed around the punched shape, making a slightly larger mat of the Always Artichoke cardstock underneath! I then added one additional tiny rosette to the corner of the tag.
Just a reminder -- today is the final day of the GREAT SNAIL SALE. You have until midnight to e-mail me with your SNAIL refill order.
