We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that earned the Maui Trip.  Most of the Demonstrators from the US that earned the trip are in Maui or on their way to there as this Blog is going live.  In Canada, we celebrated on Saturday Virtually.  It was a blast, but I wish I could be there.

Have you ever ordered Stampin' Up! ® product and  do not know what to do with it now?  I am doing a series on FaceBook  using those supplies.  I hope that I can inspire people to use those treasures  that they have just lying around.

I am loving the Hand Penned.  What about you?  Today I will show you something that I did using that White Stampin Craft Ink.  This isn't new but maybe you can dust it off and start using it again or for the first time.

So here is my card. I used the craft ink 2 ways in this card. I will give the shopping list below.

Hand Penned Stampin Up  Stampin With Diane

Firstly,  here is the whitewash technique.

I love how it all came together.  The video will show you how these two techniques work.

Before I show the video, here are the measurements:

Polished Pink: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4", 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" for Scallop

Basic White: 2 @ 4" x 5 1/4"
