Fabric Stamping!!

Hiya & Happy Monday!! Did you all have a good weekend? I did, it was pretty uneventful but I did get to Target & Michaels (yay)!! It also rained all weekend, which was a bummer so I'm hoping for some sun this week! I also managed to get 4 video tutorials done for you all and a bunch of projects completed so that makes me happy :O)

**And my video disclaimer is that "YES" I do have on cherry-print jammie pants in my videos, LOL!! Sunday was "pj day" here in our house, hee hee!**

Congratulations to you both! Please contact me so I can get you your goodies out this week-my email is in my sidebar!! I enjoyed reading everyone's comments and answers to my "nosy" questions so, so much--it was really enjoyable!! I love that most of your happiest birthday presents were so sweet & so close to the heart! Thank you again for stopping by & being a friend to me!


For my "stamping on fabric" project today I have a "New Baby Gift Bundle" for ya! I have to say that I am super-pleased with how this turned out, lol! I used all Paper Trey Ink products for this (palette inks, stamp sets & ribbons). PTI's Palette Inks come in so many beautiful colors and they are a permanent dye ink so they work wonderfully on fabric (takes hundreds of washings to get the dye to disappear). I bought packs of newborn baby onesies at Target--these are organic cotton by Gerber and the socks are cotton also.

Stamping on fabric w/ inks is very easy & you can customize so many things and make so many gifts this way. I used the following Paper Trey Ink sets on these onesies & socks--Tags for Spring, Wishing You, and Mega Mixed Messages. Palette ink colors used were--Hibiscus, Lavender Moon, Lemon Tart and Spring Moss.

**You can see the video tutorial of how to stamp this project right HERE!!

Up close of the matching gift card and tag on basket! Such pretty and girly colors to use together--I just love it! This gift bundle is up for sale on my Etsy site (link on my sidebar)!

My second project is another handstamped gift set that I made a video tutorial of too. This time while stamping on the tea towel, I used Lockhart's "Cherries in Colander" and "IB Cherry" from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. I love any kind of cherry images, they just make me happy!

A close-up view of the towel I stamped and colored with Copics--I just tied the top off with some of this fun gingham ribbon! I had picked up this set of (4) ceramic spreaders that matched my gingham ribbon perfectly. I just made a belly band to match the notecard and added a nice label to the front. You could add any sentiment to the front of this, but I chose this "thankyou hostess" sentiment from PTI's "Mega Mixed Messages".

This is a close-up of my notecard--I created a patterned paper with my Lockhart "IB Cherry" to match my tea towel. I added some Diamond Glaze to the top of the cherries for some nice shine! And I just adore this gingham ribbon I got at the Offray Outlet (whole roll for $0.50)! This gift bundle is up for sale on my Etsy site too!

**You can see the video tutorial for this project HERE!!

Hope you've enjoyed my projects today & you can find all my tutorials linked on my sidebar!! I've also set up an Etsy shop if anyone is interested--that's linked on my sidebar too! :o)

See ya back here tomorrow! BLOG CANDY #3 is still open until Tuesday at midnite(EST)--you can enter HERE!!
