Tie-Dye using Pigment Sprinkles

Bee Thankful Tie DyeDisinfectant Wipes Pigment Sprinkles Tie-Dye Background

My August Fresh Ideas Newsletter featured the Pigment Sprinkles Tie-Dye Background Technique using everyday household items such as tissue paper and disinfectant wipes. 

Baby wipes would also work, but I like the texture of the disinfectant wipes. 

Looks like honeycomb!

Here's another tie-dye background that I paired with the stamp Bee Thankful colored in with a variety of Stampin' Blends.

It's easy to create bright and vivid backgrounds with this technique.

If you'd like to learn more, please add your name to my mailing list (sign-up box is in the upper right-hand corner of this page) between August 26-September 3.

Create happy, colorful (and quick), ombre thank you cards using Stampin' Blends and the cute stamp set Bee Thankful.

All you need are 3 colors of coordinating Stampin' Blends.

Light, medium, and dark.

Stamp the image on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Memento Black or Black Stazon inks.

As always, I used my Stamparatus to get a good stamped image.

Then color the top parts of the image using the lightest Blend.

Move onto the middle parts of the image using the medium Blend.

Finish the bottom parts of the image using the darkest Blend.

That's it!

After coloring the images, I ran the card front through my die-cut machine using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Its gives the image the look of linen paper. 

The Subtle Embossing Folder has now become my favorite!

Pigment Sprinkles Daisy Delight Bookmarks

Bookmark

I made these pretty bookmarks using Pigment Sprinkles combined with Daisy Delight stamp set to give as thank you gifts for an upcoming workshop.

They were simple to create, each becoming their own little piece of artwork.

Here's how:

  1. Lightly sprinkle Pigment Sprinkles onto a strip of watercolor paper.  Remember, a little goes a long way with the Sprinkles.
  2. Spritz the daisy from Daisy Delight with water and stamp onto the watercolor paper.  The water will activate the Sprinkles.  Let the stamp set for a few seconds, then lift. 
  3. Repeat for additional daisies.
  4. Sprinkle a small amount of Granny Smith Green Sprinkles in blank spaces on the watercolor paper.  Spritz the leaf from Daisy Delight with water and stamp.  Let the stamp set for a few seconds, then lift.  Repeat for additional leaves.  Set aside to dry.
  5.  Once the pieces have dried, mat to coordinating card stock.  Stamp the greeting from Daisy Delight on the back.  Punch a small hole in the top of the bookmark and add a coordinating ribbon.  Add Perennial Essence Floral Centers to each of the flowers to complete.
