Default I'm Hosting a class on Tues...HELP!

I'm hosting a Stamping class at my home on Tuesday and the topic is "Household Items Can Help". The whole purpose is to show that items you have in your house can help with any stamping or scarpbooking project. HELP I NEED MORE IDEAS.

SO far this is all I have.

1. Plastic Wrap - crinkle it up and rub it onto your ink pad...than stamp it onto your card stock. Looks like Faux Painting

2. Rubber Bands - wrap them around your brayer, thank ink, and than brayer onto cardstock. Give fun & silly looking lines

3. Bleach - we all know what this does

4. Nail File - File the edges of cardstock to give an aged look.

5. Drywall tape - cheap version of Magic Mesh.

But isn't there stuff you can do with Rubbing Alcohol & Shaving Cream?
Does Anyone have any other suggestions of what I could demonstrate?

I just recently used shaving cream. Real easy! Buy shaving foam (Barbasol .94 at WalMart), fill disposal tray with about 1 inch of the foam, drop in a few drops of your favorite re-inkers and swirl. Lay your cardstock in the foam, middle first and press onto the cream. Lift cardstock, wipe off foam and you have a real cool look. You can continue to re-lay the CS for a heavier color or with additional colors.

I recently did a class just like this. I used the bleach, rubber bands, I also did the wax paper resist. Using glossy cs crinkle wax paper and lay on top of gloss cs then lay sheet of paper over that to protect iron and then apply iron with pressure. don't iron like you would clothes you want the wax paper really crinkly. Then take everything off glossy cs and you can see the wax on there when you tilt it and then I brayered over it whatever color and the color resist the wax.
Also H20 & chalk: I put about an inch of water in a dish then scrape chalk ontop of the water and then lay your piece of US cardstock on the water and lift out. The chalk adheres neatly to the cardstock.
I've attached a picture of the H20 &chalk card we made.

Default House Hold items

I got this idea out of a magazine. Packing tape transfers. You need to use freshly photocopied pictures, or words, needs to have toner, computer copies won't work, nor will actual photos. I tried.
Take your packing tape piece and stick it to your photocopied picture, rub all air bubbles and creases out. Soak in water for 5 min. Using your fingers rub, gently, all the paper off the back. Don't use your nails to scratch. You will be left with a transparent image on your tape which you can use on your cards or your scrapbook layout. It probably isn't acid free, or safe, so don't let it touch your photos.
I left a few wrinkles in my tape and it doesn't look bad.

Polished stone is the technique that uses alcohol. I use a small chip clip or clothes pin to hold the cotton ball. Spray with alcohol until damp then put 1-2 drop of 2-3 different reinkers on the cotton ball. Using glossy paper (this is key!) dab the cotton ball on the paper randomly and quickly. You end up with a beautiful marble looking background. It dries very quickly, then you cn stamp an image right on top of it.

There's also a technique that uses cooking oil and pearl ex. Use various colors of Pearl Ex, Sponge Daubers, and Vegetable Oil. Take black card stock and rub cooking oil onto card stock with paper towel. Dip sponge daubers into each Pearl Ex powder jar, rub the colors around. May swirl or be more linear...up to you. Rub more cooking oil onto card stock and repeat with the Pearl Ex (seems to intensify the color). You can then stamp an image onto background with stamp inked in VersaMark. BE SURE TO CLEAN THE STAMP BEFORE REINKING...THERE'S OIL AND PEARL EX POWDER ON THE STAMP...ruins the VersaMark pad).

NY Nan just did a cool card with this technique in our swap. Soooo easy!

Hey Nan, help me out here!

Default rubbing alcohol

You wet a cotton ball with r. alcohol then drop one or two drops of refill ink onto. Rub over stamped image (on glossy cardstock)and it looks great.
Use different cotton balls for each color. Can use as many colors as you want.
You could also do masking tape background, misting (spray bottle), painting with bleach or stamping wit bleach, curled ribbon (hairdryer or embossing gun), fuseable webbing technique, glitter window (packing tape). I don't know.... you could probably do more but I don't know if these interest you or not.

I almost forgot... scented cards-paint with kool-aid..... that's kinda a fun one.

ok jani....the marble technique... Do you roll a marble inside tray with ink refills. I think that is the technique. If not I sure hope Nan chimes in soon before I go to bed.

I like the koolaid idea...never tried that. Ya...I'm gonna use bleach for painting and stamping. I wasn't too sure how to use the alcohol with cotton ball...thanks that helps. What is the fuseable webbing technique, and how about more with the curled ribbon!!

Isn't there something with White Crayons? I can't remember.

You can use used dryer sheets as faux mulberry paper. You can brayer it to achieve different colors, or just use as white.

You use white crayons for crayon resist...you stamp an image color or draw where you want with the white crayon then either do the second stamp or brayer or dab in color and the white crayon area will resist the ink that is applied....awesome examples in the gallery....

there is a another technique using dryer sheets...that sound neat....and we all have used dryer sheets around...

to add an aged look to organdy ribbon, apply heat from your heat gun...as you hold the heat over the ribbon, it curls and scrivels...though be careful, you can burn the ribbon and your fingers... (speaking from experience )

there is another technique called scratch and sniff.... you stamp an image and use heat & stick and add any sugarfree item .... i saw a post about using cinnamon with the gingerbread man set, sugar free pudding with the chocolate stamps and using koolaid with any of the fruit sets...the post said DO NOT USE ANYTHING WITH SUGAR DUE TO ANTS & ANIMALS...

Good Luck and please post what you end up doing!!!! I can't wait to hear all about your camp!

OH - I'm glad you wrote "used" dryer sheet. I was thinking new...and the new smell would be overwhelming... silly me
I love the idea of a dryer sheet!! I'll use that too.

I'll keep you all updated. Maybe my customers will have some good ideas too that I can pass onto you all!!

THANKS

Ink your stamp, then stamp off onto a kitchen sponge that has a nylon surface (I can't think of brand names---just not a cellulose sponge). When you stamp, you get a distressed print. It's great for antique or heritage looks.

Future floor polish in a water pen--although, I'd hate to use it in the new Aqua Painters!

Sorry, I posted those techniques and then went to bed....

Fusable web is stuff used to attach things together without sewing. I am not a sewing person (as if you couldnot tell from the terminology i used). It gets sticky and fuses to other things when it gets hot from iron or heat gun.

Technique: You cut a piece of f. web and ink it up with versamark. Sprinkle with e. powder. Heat with gun over area that it will be on the card front beacause it sticks and shrivles quick.

Ok i forgot to comment about the curly ribbon.

Use SU!'s organza ribbon. Tie or thread through card front. Heat with tool or hairdryer and it curls/ puckers up- its kinda cool.

Boy, am I glad I decided to read this topic! SO many different techniques to try. Thanks to all you wonderful, creative and resourceful women! How do you all come up with these things?

I do have a question: How do you do the faux leather technique? I know you use masking tape, but not sure how to go about using it.

Thanks again!
Janice

Oh, I just remembered something else you can try: Bubble Wrap!!
Lay your bubble wrap down on the ink pad (bubble side down), use your brayer to roll over the wrap to ink it well, then repeat this again, this time placing the bubble wrap on your card stock.
I don't remember where I learned this trick, maybe here, maybe another site, but it is a nice effect.

What about salt?

Salt Technique
Directions :
1. Brayer ink over glossy cardstock.
2. Spray the card stock with a light mist of water. The colors of the ink will begin to run
together a bit.
3. Sprinkle salt over the wet card stock and set aside to dry. As the salt dries it pulls up the
color.
4. After it's dry, brush off the salt.
Tips :
· Keep the colored salt and use it in a shaker card
· Try using course salt for a different effect

Toilet Paper?
Toilet Paper Technique
Take your stamp (ones with details work)and place it rubber side up on your table. Next
take some toilet paper (non-quilted works best) and layer a couple of sheets on top. Then
using a stimple brush with a little bit of water, (not too much water as it might rip you
paper) gently "pounce" on the toilet paper. This will make the toilet paper set into the
stamp. Then layer it again, and stimple with water. Do this a couple of times, until you
get the desired thickness you want. Then let dry. After it is dry gently peel off and you
have you image "embossed" in the toilet paper.

Coffee?
Coffee Staining on Card Stock or Material
Brew a pot of double strength coffee and let it cool a bit. Paint on paper or material
with a sponge brush while it's still warm. It soaks in quickly and that's how you get color
streaks and variations. If your paper curls a lot (vellum curls like crazy), tape down
corners on a cutting board or cardboard. Stamp and decorate as usual when dry. To coffee
stain material, just fold and scrunch a small piece of material (like for tie-dying) and soak
it directly in coffee pot.

Just a few more ideas. Hope these help some

Yes you can coffe and tea dye paper. It really looks cool when the paper/ cardstock is crumbled, then flattened/ ironed.
The salt technique sounds real neat...
The t.p. techniques sounds neat too... Wow the possibilities are endless!

If you don't have re-inkers available, this works with food coloring, too!!
