Fun with reinkers

My recent techniques class saw us having a play with reinkers. These little gems are Stampin Ups best kept secret. You can ink up a jumbo or standard cartridge with your reinker bottle, reink a stamp pad or you can use them to make pansies like we did.

I used Summer Sun and Elegant Eggplant reinkers to colour the pansies which I punched from watercolour paper with my butterfly punch, a simple black brad, the dots embossing folder, a small piece of ribbon, the absolutely adorable small tag punch and one of the stamps that coordinate with the punch and I had a very quick, absolutely gorgeous card. These cards are 4 inches by 4 inches and look lovely in real life. These two cards are off to a friend and my Mum and hopefully they will like them as much as I did making them for them.

Tomorrow I will post a card on how to make beautiful roses with  your reinkers. Till then, happy crafting
