I was going through some old picture files and came across this project from several years ago. Do you remember when Stampin' Up used to sell ultrafine glitter in a variety of colors? I really miss those. I just ordered the silver and gold so I may have to revisit this technique.
I was never a fan of stamping on fabric. The colors always looked washed out plus you don't have a nice smooth surface to stamp on. So here's my solution...I make t-shirt transfers using Versamark, Embossing Powder and some computer paper. Stamp your image in Versamark Ink on computer paper, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat emboss it. Trim around the image with scissors, place it face down on your fabric and iron. So easy even kids can do it. The embossing powder melts into the fabric, the colors are way more intense then stamping directly with ink plus it's washable and permanent.
Here's a sample using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
Note: This method produces a mirror image of your stamp so it isn't suitable for words. The letters for this project were stamped directly onto green fabric that was backed with fabric adhesive, cut out by hand and ironed onto the onsie.
It’s time for more Punch Art. I hope you’re as excited as I am! Let’s clear out those card stock scraps this holiday season and make room for Santa. I’ve created 23 Holiday Punch Art items using current Stampin’ Up punches. All the supplies I used for this class can be found in the 2012/2013 Stampin’ Up catalogue or the 2012 Holiday mini. Decorate your tags, bags and cards this year with punch art.
Here are the details....you’ll get full color photos, cheat sheets, step by step instructions and videos for each punch art project. How you use your punch art it up to you. I’ve included instructions for two bonus projects; a Simple Gift Card Holder and a Gift Bag. Use these as the base for your punch art or create some tags using some of Stampin’ Up’s tag dies or framelits.
The cost of this class is $20 CAD. Click on the PayPal like below to order.
Please note: Although I design my classes with Stampin' Up demonstrators in mind you don't need to be a demonstrator to order it. And the class is online so it doesn't matter where you live. Once you place your order I'll email you the class link and login information so you can access the class.
This is the other 3D project I entered in the Artisan Award contest. It's a larger version of my Stationery Box from several years ago. On the left is a card box with matching note cards (you can't see them). On the right in the back is stationery stamped with the doily stamp set. The clear box holds some coordinating paper clips that I purchased them at the $1 store and recovered with DSP and crystal effects. The front panel of the case is a dry erase calendar with with matching pen and fabric flower magnets.
I've been sewing for as long as I can remember so it's a little ironic that this is the first time I've sewn on a card. I'm not really liking it. My straight lines aren't so straight and my wonky lines aren't too impressive either. I guess I need to play with it a little more. It's harder to sew on card stock than it is on fabric.
