Recipe card using distress inks....

Today I am preparing for my distress ink class at Stamping Bella. I can hardly wait to share my love of those inks to all that come tomorrow. I think they will be hooked for sure! I am sure with all the fun we will have, we will all be a little hungry and need a little treat to tie us over. So I baked some Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins for all. And of course....I HAD to make a recipe card!
Just bought a Penny Black image last week and stamped this little "Flutter-bye" up, using VersaFina Onyx Black ink. My album is still quite empty...so more recipe cards to come!


This summer I am going to have another class making these recipe cards, at Stamping Bella! I think this will be alot of fun..sharing old time favourite recipes and then making them into keepsake recipe cards. A recipe booklet that would be so fun to receive.You should see the ones I had...lots of scribbled recipes on old pieces of paper.

I want to thank-you all for your sweet comments. They mean so much to me. I know how busy we all get and it is so hard to find the time sometimes to visit blogs......so thank-you!

Gorgeous!! I soooo love this idea, I just find it so daunting. Ive got three big binders full of recipes, where to start and which ones to include? And how the heck do you fit it on there anyway? I guess just choose simple recipes. Hmm maybe its a project for 2012. You do inspire me, Christine!

These are great Christine! Such a nice way to preserve your recipes! I sure wish I could be in your class, I know next to nothing about distress inks. I have some but know that I don't use them for all the great things they could be used for! Aloha and hugs, J:)

Dorcas and I were talking about your recipe cards today.. I LOVE this. I have to ask where did you get the binder. I want to start one too. I was thinking about doing this for some of my favorite recipes. I LOVE the hedge hog on this one. I am wishing I lived near you. I would love to take a class like this. Good luck.

Your muffins are leaving my mouth watering, and that Penny Black image is so cute. Your coloring is wonderful! I so wish I could attend your recipe class (and your distress class for that matter.) How did it go? I'm anxious to hear. Hope your weather is finally warm and perfectly lovely.

Norma said...

Christine, this is the most adorable hedgie and your colouring with the DI is faultless. When I grow up I want to colour just like you. With that in mind, I've put in an order for some re-inkers. How did your class go? Wish I could have taken it. I will need instructions--lots of the!!!
Hugs,
Norma

PS. Woo-hoooo.....we're going to the finals!!! (we shouldn't have won that last game, but I'm not complaining..LOL)
