    Straw Blowing Technique with Reinkers

    DSCN2435Hi Everyone! Today's card uses Glossy White Paper102599 and a variety of Reinkers that can be found in the color collections grid, second column from the left in the 2012-13 catalog. (pp 152-156). This is such a fun technique that I added a few more reinkers to the order I started :)

    DSCN2434Make sure to have plenty of:
    Scrap surface paper
    Tissues &
    Baby wipes
    on hand. I was a messy marvin making my backgrounds!

    Tip!!!
    If you cut your Glossy White paper to 2-3/4" x 3-5/8" you can get 9 pieces out of 1 sheet of glossy white.

    DSCN2432
    It's been FOREVER since I made a video...so I'm off to do so right now on how to make.... check back late afternoon! (done) Plus it's hard to show the glimmer of the glossy white and how pretty and one-of-a-kind these cards really are! You can see on the photo to the left how the glossy...Glossy White paper really is!

    Everyone also contributed a bag of candy that we mixed together to fill our treat bags.

    But before filling with treats, we embossed the bags using a variety of embossing folders.

    This was a Fun Family class and the children did an awesome job of stamping, then coloring some of the images. OF COURSE, the best part is putting googlies eyes on them! ok...that is the best part for me! googlies just make me happy! Here's some more pictures of the night.
