Australian fans can comment for a chance to win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil and a surprise Stampendous goodie.

Here is my project:


Momento ReInkers in Sweet Plum, Summer Sky, Lilac Posies, Danube Blue, Rose Bud, Lulu Lavender and London Fog
Old Whipped Topping Container
Baking Soda
Small Pieces of Cardboard to fit into the bag
Non Stick Craft Sheet
Stencil Brush
Fabric Paint in White, Yellow and Green
Paper Towels
Regular Brush
Shrink Plastic
Stazon Black Ink
Manual Die Cut Machine
Hole Punch
Prismacolor Pencils in White and Yellow
Heat Gun
Uniball Signo Broad White Pen
Assorted Beads


1)  Rinse the bag under very hot water, using a little baking soda like soap-scrubbing it in and rinsing it out. 

2)  While it is still wet, place the bag into the whipped topping container.

3)  Squeeze the Momento ReInkers directly onto the bag, moving it around occasionally to find blank areas to color.

4)  Cover the bag with a little salt.

 5)  Fill the container with water until it covers the bag.

 6)  Cover the container and shake to agitate the dye.

 7)  Pour out the dye and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear.  Then, let the bag dry or throw in the dryer.

 8)  Place cardboard in the bag to create a flat surface.  Then, tape the stencil onto the bag.

 9)  Squeeze white fabric paint onto the craft sheet and tap stencil brush into it.

 10)  Tap the brush onto paper towel to remove the excess paint.

 11)  Rub the brush over the top of the stencil.  Repeat these last two steps until the entire stencil has been painted.

12)  Remove the stencil and let the paint dry.

 13)  Use the regular brush to paint over the stencilled image.  Then, let dry completely.

14)  Sand the shrink plastic.
15)  Stamp the shrink plastic with the daisy image and Stazon Ink.
16)  Run the stamped image through the die cut machine with the daisy die.
17)  Use the Prismacolors to color the image.
18)  Punch a hole in the image.
19)  Use your heat gun to shrink the daisy.  It will get all wrinkly, but just keep heating, and it will straighten out.

20)  Color the top of the daisy petals with the white pen.
21)  Use the needle and thread to sew on the beads and the daisy charms you created!

I hope you enjoyed this project.  Please remember to leave a comment on all the blogs for your chance to win!
