HI Stampers! I’m still ‘Going Green’ with my stamping projects! This week I re- purposed bottle caps into stamped fridge magnets.
AFTER I taped the video, I realized a trick to keep the ink from blurring with the Crystal Effects on top of it. I put a piece of clear packing tape over my stamped images and then put the Crystal Effects on top. I certainly didn’t want blurry magnets!
The bee is from Just Be, which is still available but on the Stampin’ Up Dormant list. I used the cap of my V-8 bottle. The owl is from Stampin’ Up and called Owl Together Now. I used a water bottle cap. The ladybug is from Garden Whimsey.
Now, to go “toadally” green, Matt and I have to give up the plastic water bottles. I’m spoiled but I can drink filtered water. Matt on the other hand, is a Zephyrhills water snob. He’d probably rather drink rain water from an abandoned tire than Dasani or Aquafina. It’s going to be a challenge….
If you have any green stamping ideas, I’d love to hear ’em!
Going, Going, Green!
I’ve been dabbling in going green.I’ve watched the news reports on the state of our world, the unbelievable amounts of trash we create and the effects of chemicals on the earth.I love to watch Ed Begley’s show, Living With Ed, who drags his wife (sometimes kicking and screaming) into his eco-friendly world.After a stamping friend of mine told me about the toxins in my everyday cleaners, I did some research and took the plunge to go green with my cleaning products(I’ll admit I was a bleach junkie and although I have not kicked the habit completely, I am breathing better these days).On a non-stamping related note,if you want to know what toxins are under your sink, read more about it here. http://www.shaklee.net/melanie_williamson/gc_yourhome1
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Now that my A-Z rubber stamping technique journey is over, I wanted to come up with another series of videos.I like themes… Anyhoo, going green seemed to be a way to do my part, stamping style!
Here is my first repurposing project using a Tic Tac container.I love Tic Tacs and try not to buy them often as I they are addicting and I can consume one box in a day.I think it is brilliant marketing on their part by calling them Tic Tacs, because you simply cannot eat one at a time.How can you choose between a Tic or a Tac?Can’t be done.Thus, we consume the box twice as fast.Like I said, brilliant marketing.
