In this video I show you how easy it is to make note cards using stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry! In each set you get a few peg stamps! The package gives you ink colour suggestions and step by step instructions to layer the stamps! In the video I make the card using the Southern Pine Stamp Set.
On the next episode I am showing you how to do two-tone foiling!
One of my favourite products from CHA was the Prima Fibre Arts Loom Kits! You get everything you need to make a Tapestry or 2! The kit includes not only the frame and accessories, but a variety of yarn and embellishments. Each kit contains the same products, but with different colour yarns. Once you use up all of the yarn, you can purchase other yarn and continue using the loom! The great thing is that you can make a wall tapestry in an afternoon!
In the video I show you what you get in the kit; how the loom gets put together; how to start a tapestry; basic weaving; and how to end a tapestry.
Today I am showing you how to add foil to fabric! Thermoweb has an Iron-On Adhesive that you can cut using your dies! I used the Waffle Flower Magical die to cut out a horse! You then place it on your piece of clothing, bumpy side down. Make sure the paper is still on your design. Use a piece of parchment to protect your iron, and iron for at least 30 seconds. Make sure that your steam is off! Remove from heat and let it cool down.
Remove the protective paper and place your foil over the design, coloured side up. Place your parchment back over your design and iron for about 40 seconds. Cool completely before removing foil! You can wash your clothing, but don’t place in the dryer!
Seth Apter is a Mixed Media designer that teamed up with Spellbinders to design a line of dies and stamps. Today I am using some of these products to make a mixed media clipboard. However, you can do these techniques on any project!
I started with Heidi Swapp’s clipboards. They come in a package of 3 – 1 large, and 2 smaller sizes. They are made from a thick white chipboard, so they are perfect for a mixed media project. I applied a thin layer of Texture Paste onto the board. I used this to cover up the metal screws and to add some texture to our base. You need to let this dry before continuing.
I then used Distress Spray Stains to colour the background. I blended a variety of colour and dried them. I cut the Coffee Ring dies from black cardstock. I used the cardstock as a stencil and sprayed water through them to make some watermarks. I then took the cut out pieces and used them a as a mask and sprayed more of the mist over them.
I dried the background again before stamping the Thunderstorm stamp with Black Archival Ink. Now it is time to let your clipboard dry completely!! This means overnight dry time!!
