These are the beautiful Vintage ribbon flowers on pg 5 of the Stampin' Up! Spring catalog - 5/8" Flower Trim, #126869... there are 2 yards of these gorgeous little flowers in each package.  AND HERE'S THE MOST EXCITING NEWS... it is only $6.95 for the whole pack!! whoohoooo!

I needed to dye a lot of these little beauties for a project we are making at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting on Saturday, so I tried this method and it worked great!

Coloring flower trim bowlsSTEP BY STEP:
1.  I rummaged through the drawer with all the extra plastic containers and lids that don't match

2.  filled the containers about 1/3 full with water

3.  added approx 10 to 12 drops of Stampin' Up! Reinker

(shown at left:

top = Calypso Coral

bottom = Pool Party)

4.  Cut Flower Trim into about 12" sections and put them in the containers... stirred with a plastic spoon left over from Yogurtland and let sit about 10 minutes

5.  I took the wet flowers out and let them dry on paper towels

When dry, I used Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write markers to add some color to the tips of the flowers... ohhhhhhh so pretty!

 OPTIONAL METHODS for Dyeing the flowers:

1. sponge ink onto flowers

2. "smoosh" flower directly onto the ink pad

3. mix reinker and water in Stampin' Spritzer and spray flowers

4.  color with markers only

and of course... spritz with Smooch Spritz or Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer... to add a little Glitz and Glam!

OK>>.. I'm ready for our Luv 2 Stamp Group Meeting on Saturday... can't wait to see all my gals!

Shelli demoed how she colors these flowers. She used a sponge dauber. Gives it a darker flower. I used a marker, love how that looks two tone.

Hi patty, I used some leftover spray that I had used on my Chritmas cards. It was alcohol, marina mist inker & champagne mist irredesent ink. Just sprayed it on lightly and let it dry. Has a slight sparkle to it. Now I just need to make a card with it!


Hi Patty. What a wonderful idea using the flowers from the new catalog. I love how you did the colors. Once I place my order, I will have fun making the dress cards. Thank you for the inspiration.
