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!
