A Happy Hooray for a great big Stampin' Up box

Did I mention that as a member of Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team, I get a great big box of goodies delivered to my door every two minutes? (Okay, that may be a very slight exaggeration!) More about that later but first come and see what happened when I combined baby wipes and reinkers with my new A Happy Hooray stamp set!

This is what happened! I used the wipes and reinkers to make a multi-coloured ink pad.

It's such a simple technique: Fold up a baby wipe, add a few drops of reinker (I used Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron) and use it to ink up your stamps! 

I embellished with a few of the in-colour sequins - I just can't get enough of these and the colours worked beautifully with my feathers!

This is a beautiful sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts sentiment set. I stamped it in Smoky Slate ink which looks great with all the soft colours in Stampin' Up's Subtles colour family.

but if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.

I wonder what goes through a UPS delivery man's mind when he sees a half-crazed crafter open the door with ink smeared over her... I think I may have scared mine with the enthusiasm with which I grabbed my box!

Here I am rifling through my gorgeous goodies! Can you tell that I'm ever so slightly pleased ;)

See you tomorrow when the whole Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team will be out to inspire you with our weekly blog hop. Don't miss it!
