Stampin' On Silk


Hello, I hope that you have enjoyed your Christmas and that you are starting to get out from all the snow that we have had dumped on us here in NW Missouri. Our family has enjoyed sledding but it wasn't much fun to have Christmas plans cancelled because the roads were to snow cover and slick. I recently made a pin based on the ones that Shelli showed us at convention this year. They are super quick to make and so much fun. The pin uses the Big Shot and the Stampin'Up! Flower Folds Bigz XL Die (115970) Just run the fabric through the Big Shot and the Die cuts the flowers out super fast. Well, after making one I had a customer ask if I would make one for a her as well as a Silk Scarf. I have never stamped on silk before but was eager to give it a try. This scarf was cased from one I saw here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/580201?&si=silk%20and%20baroque%20motif I picked colors that complimented the fabric that the pin was made out of and used Night Quite Navy, Handsome Hunter, Brocade Blue and Creamy Caramel Craft Ink Pads. The stamp set that I used is Baroque Motifs (113490). I have used this set so many times but haven't used it much lately, I think I will be changing that soon. I just inked up the stamp set with the Craft Ink and then stamped. I allowed the Scarf to dry for a short time then I heat set the Craft Ink by ironing the scarf. I love how it looks and if you do to I would be happy to schedule a class so you can make your own silk scarf. I would love to make a scarf with the Medallion Stamp on it or maybe hearts for Valentine's Day. The possibilities are endless.
I can't believe 2009 is drawing to an end but that also means that we are so much closer to the start of the new Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration. I would love to help you earn free stamp sets by hostessing a workshop. Valentine's Day will be the theme for all my January workshops, so if you would like to have a fun girls night of stamping contact me soon to book your workshop. Thanks for stopping by, Tonya
