Stamping On!

Sunday, September 15, 2013

This week, The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to "Stamp On".  We know you can stamp on plain, white paper.  But what about patterned paper, wood, plastic, or fabric?  The challenge is to stamp on anything but plain paper.  For my project, I chose to stamp on fabric and I created my own fabric covered buttons.  These are so fun to make.  So fun, that I created several sets!
I dug through my old sewing stash and found some plain, cream-colored muslin. I used Distress Paint to cover the fabric. (Note: The paint will seep through the fabric so be sure to cover your work surface)  I stamped some fun, script text and then added my focal image stamped in StazOn ink.

Here are some additional buttons that I made with the same 7 Gypsies stamps.
And look at how fun they are to use!
 
Join in the fun as we continue to celebrate STAMPtember®!!
 Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.
Join the fun and show us what YOU can stamp on.  By linking your project, you are automatically entered for the chance to win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp online store.  Your project could also be chosen as a featured designer and you could earn a cool badge for your blog.
Happy Stamping!

  27. Michelle! This one was so cool that I forced my husband to come look at it! While he is not girly in any way, he certainly is an appreciator of the arts, so he thought these were cool, too. I didn't even know about that adhesive fabric! I'm drooling at the possibilities already! You always inspire and amaze.
