My Pinkalicious Blog Hop ~ June 2012

Welcome to this month's blog hop showcasing My Pink Stamper's latest and greatest image stamp release: Yankee Doodles.  This stamp set has so many fun images to play with and can be bought exclusively at Shop Pumpkin Spice.  You should have reached here from Shelley's blog and if you just joined us, please start at the beginning at Robyn's blog so that you don't miss any of the great projects featuring this stamp set.

For my project, I created a glass charm set:




Materials Used:
  • Shrinky Dinks
  • My Pink Stamper Yankee Doodles stamp set/kit
  • Stazon Jet black ink
  • Promarkers in Royal Blue, Red and Gold
  • Misc beads and jewelry fundamentals
I started off the project using Shrinky Dinks in Bright White.

Next, I cut my images to stamp on.  I used the FREE Cricut digital cart - Cricut Craft Room Basics.  I cut the Shrinky Dinks material in my mini at full pressure, speed, and multi-cut 3.

I then stamped my images from the My Pink Stamper Yankee-Doodles stamp set with Stazon ink.

Time to color!  I used Promarkers Royal Blue, Red and Gold found in this months Pumpkin Spice kit.

The last preparation step is to punch holes in the Shriky Dinks PRIOR to going in the oven.  I used a standard hole punch which leaves a perfectly sized hole to attach with once it is baked.  Baking them is super easy and fast.  Simply bake in a 325 degree oven for 1-3 minutes.  They cool almost immediately and are then ready to be used.
And here they are completed:







I think this will make a fun and unique hostess gift.  Want to try this yourself?  Here are my craft files:

Need a fun summery drink recipe to make for your Fourth of July barbecue?  How about some Watermelon Lemonade to keep you refreshed?

Ingredients:

Remove as many seeds as you can from the watermelon flesh. Place watermelon and water in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain liquid into a pitcher, along with sugar and lemon juice. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, then serve.
