Deal of the Week Inspiration

DOTW4_01 This week’s 30% discount on the Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware was just the boost I needed to pull it out of my stash and do some creating!  Since I finally got the Scallop Edge punch during the first week of this fabulous promotion, I was itching to make something with that as well.

The ribbon used here is actually Very Vanilla, and I custom-dyed it using a one-to-one solution of Mellow Moss reinker and water because I didn’t have any Mellow Moss taffeta and the grosgrain just looked too heavy.  To set the color, I just tossed it in the dryer (set on low)  for a minute or two!  This method seems to work better than coloring with markers or dragging across an ink pad, and heat-setting it using the dryer is easier than doing it with the heat gun!  LOL, it also triggers flashbacks to junior high and creating my own “designer” t-shirts with puffy paints!

As a final touch, after stamping the vanilla layer I ran it through the Big Shot with one of our exclusive texture plates.  I think it complements the stamped flourish perfectly, and gives just the right something extra so that it doesn’t look flat.
