Stamping on fabric (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with another sample using the gorgeous new stamps launched this month. For this card I've used stamps from 'Indian Elephant'.

I began by creating a frame from black card with a border punch. I stamped the flower with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Inside the frame I used a piece of card covered with layers of chiffon, I used a pokey tool to fray the layers to add a little interest. I used the same stamp but this time I used gold stazon, I stamped the smaller motif with black stazon. I wasn't sure if the stazon would work but I didn't have any fabric ink pads so I just had a play and I was really pleased with the effect.

The topper is a stampboard ATC, I created the background with clayboard inks and embossed the delicate image with black embossing powder.

To finish off I added a little ribbon and a gold metal corner from my stash.

Thanks for popping by today, I hope you're enjoying all the inspiration from my teamies

  1. Very striking combination of colours & I love the gold on black stamping echoed by your metal corner embellishments. I'm completely out of my depth when it comes to fabric but this looks stunning.

  2. Stunning project Claire. Love this. I have always used staz-on for fabric but never the gold TFS. CB stamps are perfect for stamping onto fabric in everyway. Transfer Artist Paper is worth a try.

  3. This is beautiful, Claire! The gold on the black background looks like gold embroidery on black velvet! I love the layers,and the whole card is very striking!
    Hugs, Clare xo :)
