Stampin’Up Happy Day Straw Technique Card!

Hi Stamping Friends,

What are you doing Friday night? We’re making this cute card at Super Fun stamp night. Email me at if you want to join us!

This card uses a fun technique called the straw technique.

 Here’s the instructions:

Select a few colors of re-inkers.
Begin by using the lightest color and squeeze three drops onto
glossy card stock or photo paper. Blow the color around with a straw. Drops
three drops of the next color onto the card stock and blow with the straw. With
the last color, drop several drops of re-inker and smooth it over the entire
panel using your straw like a butter knife. Rub off excess ink with a Kleenex.
Stamp your image.
Use a heat tool to dry the panel if needed.
I used Pink Pirouette and Costal Cabana re-inkers on my card.
The stamp set is called Happy Day #130297. I love the greetings that come with this set.
Notice the center of the flower? I used the new Soft Subtles Candy Dots #130933. You just peel & stick. It’s so easy to use these embellishments.
The Designer Paper is the 2013-2015 Designer Series Paper Stack.  I punched a butterfly with the Bitty Butterfly punch #129406. So fun!!
I hope you like my card!
Happy Stamping,
