This card is for an upcoming swap I am participating in, hosted by Crystal, for cards only using current stamp sets in the new catalog. It is a larger version of a 3x3 card I made for my hostesses. Here are the deets:
Paper:Choc.Chip, S.Saffron,V.Vanilla; Ink: C.Chip, S.Saffron; Stamps: Baroque Motifs; Other Stuff: Oval punches, Hodgepodge
In case you were thinking of trying to dye 1/4 in. grograin with your Chocolate Chip reinker. . . don't. I thought I would give it a go, as Choc. Chip 1/4 inch isn't in the new catalog & I *really* wanted some chocolate chip ribbon on this card! Twenty drops of reinker later. . . BEAUTIFUL. . . . purple ribbon. Just don't. It will be frustrating if you do! I need to get some of the new Choc. Chip ribbon forthwith! (so I am not tempted to try that again. . . .darn it. . .I just wanted a bit of brown frippery. Is that so much to ask??
Thanks to the kind advice of someone who actually read my post (yay!), I have been instructed in the dying of ribbon. . . .if you want to dye 1/4in. grograin with a chocolate chip reinker, use burgundy ribbon! Why I never thought to do this is a mystery, as it makes perfect sense. (okay, so maybe that is why :) Thank you to Sara West from SCS for the instruction. (I tried to link to your SCS gallery. . .but you don't have one! Get some cards on there girl!)
