Coloring Seam Binding

Hi Everyone, Today I dyed some seam binding and I made a video so you can see what I do.

Then I made a baby card using some.

I love the way it looks tie-dyed. The little pin I did by inking the head with Versa Mark and then dipped it in embossing powder and heated it up. I don't have many embossing powders so I mixed green and white to get this color. I will be looking for baby pins now too. I don't even think they sell them any more.
I am really on a baby card kick.  I hope that is a good thing for all you out there who want more children. I know how hard it can be when you want a baby and it just doesn't happen the way you think it should.

I used the colors for Colour Q challenge #82. The cuts are from New Arrivals. The sentiment is from SP & Company's "Ultimate Setiments I" stamp set.

If you have any questions just leave me a comment. I love comment. Thank you to all of you who leave them. I know how much time it can take when you visit lots of blogs.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful evening,

Girl your so funny!
My hands look much older then yours. I had an elderly person tell me once it is a sign of a person that has held many troubles for others.

I dress as well as you also- sometimes my combos are very unique. The mailman must think I am a bag person.
Love the tutorial especially the baking part- never thought of doing that.
blessings to you, Dawn ll

Can't wait to watch the video----the binding looks YUMMY! This card would work for the SCS challenge today, to do a boy-themed card...with that pretty blue, it would work. I'll keep my eyes open for baby pins---you're right, they're as extinct as dinosaurs!

The video was great! I never thought to just "cook" them on the cookie sheet. I put mine wet in a piece of aluminum foil, crumple it into a ball and bake it that way. I think yours is probably faster as mine is not always dry all the way when I take it out. I store mine wrapped up in a ball with a rubber band too, so they stay crinkly.
