Dyed Flowers using Stampin' Up! ReInkers

I'm really starting to love the reinkers from Stampin' Up! There really are an incredible number of uses for them. For starter's you can dye fabric as I did in these two cards.
In this first example I die cut 5 flowers using a lightweight canvas type material.  I used the Blossom Party die from Stampin' Up and cut them out with the Big Shot.  Then in a little dixie cup I added about 20 drops of Pool Party re inker and filled the cup up about 1/3rd of the way with water.  Mix and add your die cut flowers.  I continued to poke and mix until the fabric took up the die to a color deepness I was happy with.  (Don't end sentences with a preposition....But I can't HELP it!!)
For this card I used the Daisies #2 die and Calypso Coral re inker with matching paper.  To cut the Top Note die cut in the same place I cut mine just line up the 2 points on your 1/2" line on your paper trimmer.  The brads are Antique Brads by Stampin' Up! as well.  Love them!!
Please let me know if you have any questions about how these cards were made!
Thanks for stopping by!
