DIY Stamped Fabric

I am a little obsessed with fabric these days. As a designer I am so anxious to design my own fabrics but printing your own fabric designs is so expensive. Then I realized I had everything I needed right here in my craft room!
1) light colored cotton fabric (found in JoAnn's Fabrics remnant bins for 50% off)
2) cute stamps (bonus: I designed them)
3) pigment craft ink (from Clear & Simple Stamps)

I used two stamp sets from Clear & Simple Stamps: Apothecary Sweets and Apothecary Holidays.


Apothecary: Holidays

 Once I was finished stamping the fabric I scoured my Pinterest Sewing Board for a project. I thought this Fabric Tray Tutorial was perfect!

Clear & Simple Stamps Release in Review: Day 6


I decided to join in on the fun today with Clear & Simple Stamps .... After all, it is Rag Doll day.

I made a sweet little birthday ensemble using two Rag Dolls; Emma and Jake (my kiddos).

 

First, let's talk about that big HAPPY stamp, shall we?!  You'll find it in Emma Rag Doll: Happy. I colored the word in with Copic markers then used the kissing technique with Designer Lines to get that perfect diamond pattern.


Then topped the A with the gift box from this set. I stamped the box in two colors and switch the bows. I used a marker to fill the strip to look like ribbon down the middle of the box.

 

I colored little leaning Emma with Copics and using the colorless blender, made dots on the dress. Everyone needs a party hat, right? I paper pieced the party hat from Rag Dolls: Hats. I love this little add-on set....

Here's Rag Doll Jake: Cool. Isn't he a cutie?! I masked a little fish onto his shirt from Beach Bum.

 
What's a party without a little party favor?! I decorated this little gable box (aka: Party favor 5) using a sentiment from Beach Bum and some cute shape dies. The heart is from Build-a-Critter Owl/Kitty die set and the star and hexagon are each a combo set.... which means you get the die PLUS a matching border stamp set. AWESOME!


How was that for a release review? Be sure to check out the CSS blog and the fabulous team members and talented guests listed below:

Two Baby Cards

I wanted to share some cards from a Tuesday craft session with my girlfriends. My friend Melissa made this beautiful TWINS card. I love how she stamped the baby bundle on pattern paper showing a red heart and how just the wings and bill of the stork are filled in with pattern paper.
 Inside is another little stamp. Such a nice touch when the inside is decorated, too.

 If you look close you can see a slit cut in the the storks bill or is it a beak? Very clever.

 Here is the card I made.


I love this pattern paper with the months. It's from Little Yellow Bicycle, I believe. So cute. And the cloud paper we used is My Mind's Eye. LOVE!

Melissa and I both used Special Bundle (storks) and the sentiments are from Cart Pals: Baby, Shower Sentiments and Number Blocks.

Valentine's Day Suckers

I am so excited that this Critter Collection came out from Clear & Simple Stamps just in time for Valentine's Day. I made 20 or so for my kiddo's classmates. I loved mixing and matching all of the papers and adding buttons here and there. My kiddo liked telling me which animal they were and couldn't wait to give one to everyone in his class and even one to the lunch lady. So cute.

 I designed the Kitty to not have any eyes. I think it looks cool like that.

 Foxy Lady.

 You're a Hoot. This one is my favorite!!

Bee Mine.

 You're Purr-fect.

 I made the bow from two bat teeth.

Love Bandit.

Love Bite. Or maybe this one is my favorite! lol.

Sucker for You.

I can't wait for Halloween now!!

Subway Print Inspired Card

Happy Heart Day Y'all! Today is a great day to check out Clear & Simple Stamps Design Team's blogs. As a group we are showcasing sentiment stamps used as a focal point!


Love Bitten. Bee Mine Foxy Lady!


{Let me first explain why my card is on the floor. LOL!} I dropped a dish full of buttons while trying to prepare for these photos. I thought it was a sign to just go with it. :)



I thought I'd share some in between photos, too.
I started by working in layers. After the first layer, I decided to arrange the sentiments right on my project. This way I could play around with different length sentiments and such.


In photo above, I bent the same heart doodle from Taglines: Critters that is on the right into a corner for the top left corner.


Then I carefully placed an acrylic block on top of the stamps. This way I could stamp them all at once. Add ink and let her rip!


I added the teeny tiny heart image from Taglines: Critters in the open areas. Then using my W1 Copics marker, I highlighted around each open letter. LOVE!

I used the same bent heart doodle here too. Isn't it darling!

Check out what the rest of the team has in store for you....
