Stamped Muslin

Dec 16, 2011

Here is a won­der­ful way to cre­ate cus­tom rib­bon for any project or gift. All you need to do is tear strips of nat­ural or bleached muslin about 1″ wide and as long as you desire. Then place the Laven­der Salts stamp from my Anti­quated  Col­lec­tion ~ Per­fumery Stamp Set ~ Pink Per­sim­mon onto an acrylic block, ink the stamp with Cof­fee Archival Ink and stamp all along the length of the torn muslin strip. I alter­nated the top, mid­dle and bot­tom areas of the stamp to cre­ate a col­lage look. Super sim­ple and so pretty. This would look gor­geous tied around a gift wrapped in butcher block paper and accented with a sprig of pine, holly or mistletoe.

May Flaum posted a tuto­r­ial on her blog “Con­fes­sions of  a Choco­holic” show­ing you how she cre­ated two adorable tags that are per­fect to attach to gifts this hol­i­day sea­son. She too used stamps from the Anti­quated Col­lec­tion ~ Per­fumery Stamp Set. And May is even giv­ing away a Styl­ish and Fash­ion­able Stamp Set. So hop on over to her blog to check out the tuto­r­ial and make sure you leave a com­ment so you can be entered into her drawing.

If you are a sub­scriber to Pink Persimmon’s newslet­ter you already received this Season’s Greet­ings Minia­ture Wall Hang­ing PDF Tuto­r­ial  BUT those of you who are not here is the link for you! Pink Per­sim­mon and I plan on includ­ing a PDF Tuto­r­ial every month so make sure you sign up for their newslet­ter HERE, you don’t miss out. This tuto­r­ial fea­tures the Anti­quated Col­lec­tion ~ Styl­ish and Fash­ion­able Stamp Set.

And remem­ber the UTEE pieces I showed you yes­ter­day, well here they are altered with Rock Candy Crackle Paint and Dis­tress Stick­les, as well as Dia­mond and Gold Stick­les. I accented the cracks on the Gin­ger­bread Man using a Sepia Copic Marker. when I accented the snowflake I applied Dia­mond Stick­les, let it dry, applied Rock Candy Dis­tress Stick­les on top of the dried Dia­mond Stick­les, let it dry and fol­lowed up with a thin layer of Dia­mond Stick­les. This cre­ated a beau­ti­ful frosted snow/ice effect.

Wish­ing you all a cre­ative week­end. I have sev­eral projects to fin­ish up this week­end, as well as start some bak­ing. Can’t wait for Mom and Dad to arrive Christ­mas Day. I’m so excited.

Hol­i­day Hugs!
