HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!! Welcome to another "late" Friday Tip of the Day! I actually had a little help from my "Mommy" today!;) She made this BEAUTIFUL Mother's day card & I asked here what color what the trim she used?! Then she told me that it was white & she dyed it using "Tea"! Yep, good ole "Lipton Tea" is what she used to color her trim she used on her PRETTY card today! (I think my mother needs a blog! just sayin!) ;)
This is what she used for her card:
~ Sentiment from "Mom You Rock"
~ Yellow sheer ribbon from Joanns
~ used Tim Holtz's "Antique Linen" distress ink to ink up all edges of her card!
She did a few before & after samples for me using lace! Depending on how dark you want your item to be will determine how long you keep it submerged into the tea! I am curious to see what color it would be if I were to use a berry tea??? hmmmmm.....
All she did was make the tea in a little pot, let it cool, then dip your lace/trim in it. The lace at the bottom was left in for 20 minutes & the white lace, she left in for 1/2 an hour!
I made this quick & easy card for my BFF I went to highschool with! After we graduated, she went off to college & became the BEST nurse ever! I thought this was perfect since Nurse's Day is on Sunday!
Here is what I used for my card:
~ Sentiment is from "More Gift Card Sentiments"
~ Nurse Hat is from Paperdolls Everyday
~ Kraft Cardstock from Papertrey Ink
~6x6 Echo Park "Hello Summer" pad
~ Lace is from my Mother's stash & it is the one she tea dyed herself, I
thought it would look CUTE on the nurses hat!;)
Here is my video for you today!
