Vanilla Flower Trim Card

Love the flower trim but wish it came in different colors?  Easy.  Get out some ink and sponges and get to work.  You can easily dye the Vanilla Flower Trim by sponging on any ink color you would like.  I saw this trick at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in January and again in our demonstrator only magazine "Stampin' Success".  You can also use a combination of ink from an ink refill and rubbing alcohol with a Stampin' Spritzer which gives you a quicker drying time.
For this card, I cut the flowers apart and sponged Primrose Petals ink onto the Vanilla Flower Trim.  I used Primrose Petals instead of the Regal Rose background because I wanted the flower color to be darker than the background layer.  You can use whatever you feel would work best for your card. Just keep adding as much color as you feel is necessary for the right hue on your flowers.  I love how the vanilla color shows through from the flower trim!  I used the stamp set "Fabulous Florets" for the stem and leaves in Wild Wasabi.  I then added the sponged flowers with glue dots and a greeting from the stamp set "Word Play" in Early Espresso ink.  To add a bit of dimension to the card, I popped up the Regal Rose layer with dimensionals.

So grab some sponges, ink or ink refills and Vanilla Flower Trim and start playing today!  You never know what you will come up with next.  Enjoy!
