Stampin Blends alcohol pens

Christmas in July challenge 6

Todays theme is ‘Use Fabric’!

I had a little bit of Christmas fabric left in my stash so decided to grab that, and hessian, red cotton, white cotton and seam binding to make three fabric based cards.

I also grabbed these super cute stamps from an old Creative Stamping magazine to make the focal images.

I roughly cut the red fabric to mount the patterned fabric on and then strips of hessian and some seam binding to either make ruffles or as a banner. I also stamped the winter warming accessories for the penguins and bear onto the red and fussy cut those to place onto the images.

I did use the wrong ink for the stamping as I used versafine and it bled slightly when I used my stampin blends for colouring in.

I did a little hand sewing and also the buttons were sewn on.

The sentiments were Tim Holtz rub ons which I added to the Kraft to make sure they worked with the rest of the card.

Inside each card I stamped the big sentiment (it’s a 6×6 card so it can easily accommodate the bigger sentiment).

Love how fun these turned out and it was good to use up that last bit of Christmas fabric.

Happy crafting!
