Hello there! We had a great time at TNT! last night playing with a couple different techniques using Ink Refills. I just gave away a bunch of Ink Refills in our brand new colors on my Facebook Group SU!P Friends Page, and figured I'd share some ideas for using them. I made these cute little favors for all the attendees using the Silver Mini Gable Boxes and the stamp set Hedgehugs.

Yesterday I shared the Baby Wipe Technique, and this is a variation called the Baby Wipe Swipe. I cut a baby wipe into fourths and folded it up to form a small square. I added a few drops of Pineapple Punch Reinker to the end and dabbed some of the excess off onto Grid Paper. I then simply swiped it across the cardstock, forming an arch. I repeated the process with Flirty Flamingo, overlapping the Pineapple, and then swiped a third time with Coastal Cabana. This is a great technique for creating backgrounds on your projects.

I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch the tag from Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Coastal Cabana ink. I colored the bird with a Coastal Cabana Marker and the branch with Crumb Cake & Lemon Lime Twist Markers. I cut it out with Paper Snips and attached it to the tag with Mini Dimensionals. I added a couple of Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon around the box and tied a bow. I then tucked a Colored Doily underneath. I used the 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch to punch a hole in the top of the tag and tied it to the ribbon with a piece of Linen Thread.

This was a fun new twist on a classic technique that's been around for a long time. Make sure to stop back tomorrow for another card we made using the Marbeling Technique or Shaving Cream Technique,as it's also called. Thanks so much for stopping by!
