Easter Egg Dyeing



Getting ready for Easter and thought I would try to use our stampin up! ink refills to dye our Easter eggs.  All you need is 3Tbls of vinegar and 1/2 cup of water and 5 drops of the ink color of your choice.  I used Coastal Cobana, Old Olive and Baked Brown sugar
Put your eggs in your dye for about 2 minutes.  Take out and let dry.  Now to get the speckled eggs you will use our exclusive Stampin Spritzer (see below)  I used Soft Suede ink for the speckles.


I love how they look like natural eggs!
The one below is made by stamping polka dots first with our stampin classic ink pads and sponge daubers that create the polka dots,  then put it into the dye for 2 mins. 
Love this look too!


Here is what the spritzer looks like....

Wedding Favor boxes


Just in time for spring!  these beauties were taken right from our own Stampin Up! blog, so beautiful and easy to make. Would be so pretty for wedding favors or birthday party gifts boxes.
The boxes come all ready to put together, it's that easy.  The flowers are made by running pink tissue through the Big Shot die called the Rosette die.  Once you punch it out you fold it up and tie a piece of Linen thread around the middle tightly and then fluff up the flower, cut yourself some green leaves and attach to the top of the box.   Beautiful!

Products needed:
Rosette Big Shot Die #125594 
Kraft Boxes, Pink Tissue paper, Certainly Celery cardstock

Rosette Die..... you will use the one on the bottom
