Stamp Launch day 2...

Happy Tuesday,

I hope you all liked the hand painted shirt I wore that night I really enjoyed the show, don't forget I am back on Hochanda today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm.  !  I thought today I would show you another fabric painted project however this is a card.  It great when you can mix your crafts so the idea of using stamps on fabric just makes them more versatile and better value for me!

To make this one I stamped the flowers from the Peony elements clear stamp set onto plain Calico ( bought from Sew Simple at there weekend) using jet black archival ink.  I stamped the smaller peony twice and added a couple of extra leaves and the smallest of the flowers.  Next I simply coloured them in using the fab new Cosmic Shimmer Fabric paints I used the pink, pearl, the silver and green mixed to make all the shades shown ( sorry I don't know the formal names for these as I just have tester pots!)

Next I simply cut around the stamped and coloured image with scissors and then frayed the edges meaning i didn't need to sew anything! ( the idea was suggested by my Boss, she loves the fabric paints!)

I placed this on a larger mat of Kraft card , punched holes at the corners and added some brads form my stash to attach to the card.  I then added a thin layer of Baby Pink foundation card around this to match the pink in the paints!

I stamped the sentiment, again from the peony set, onto a scrap of the Kraft card and cut it out with the smaller ribbon threader die form the Spellbinders set I have on the show. Instead of threading the ribbon I added a flag cut piece  behind this so it shows through the slots.  I added thin border of the pink.

I added a panal of the Kraft card embossed with the rambling roses A4 embossing folder which I shaded with Frosted Mink colour cloud blending ink again with a pink mat.

Finally I made up the card as shown adding more of the ribbon and a few layers of the pink and Kraft card.

I hope you can tune in today for one of the shows.

  9. Good morning John. I noticed your shirt immediately on the show - very stylish. Great demo but my son rang in the middle of it so I missed how you cut and assembled the background die. I really liked the effect of that and use the die a lot.. ( catch up I think but maybe the card will appear on the blog?).
    What lovely stamps you have produced.

  10. Morning John, a stunning card today. I am loving the new stamp sets, got mine on order.

    Love the tan too, you look like you really enjoyed your holiday.

    The white shirt with the lovely flowers on looks fantastic, really lovely.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    Love Valx

  25. Eh up John
    This is truly marvellous. Would look terrific in a frame and I guess anyone who does embroidery could stamp onto their chosen material, like calico or aida, using your fab stamps, then embroider or cross stitch the flowers...that can be your next demo lol!
    Thanks for the shout outs.It was a pleasure to help with the samples as I got to use your brilliant stamps!
