Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how I created a stamped fabric Fall wall hanging for my home. The ColorBox® Background Basics by Ann Butler range of quilt-themed stamps helped me to create a beautiful homespun background for my project in no time at all! This small 4-inch piece of art was quick and easy to put together with Clearsnap® inks and stamps and a few basic supplies.
Step 1: Gather your favorite colors of Clearsnap® Craft ink, a 4″ Embroidery Hoop & Frame, a Fall themed Stamp Set, Muslin, Burlap Ribbon, Cardstock and a pair of scissors.
Step 2: Create a sentiment mask by stamping a sentiment onto a piece of cardstock and cutting it out. Leave a small border around the stamped text.
Step 3: Place the sentiment mask onto the center of a piece of muslin slightly larger than the embroidery hoop. Apply Beach Blends ink to the Diamonds 1 Background Basics Stamp and stamp the pattern onto the muslin. Repeat until the surface of the muslin is covered.
Step 4: Remove the sentiment mask from the muslin. Apply Colorbox® Crafter’s Desert Sand Ink to the sentiment stamp and stamp the sentiment onto the blank space in the center of the muslin. Heat set the ink.
Step 5: Insert the muslin into the embroidery hoop frame. Trim the extra fabric from the frame.
Step 6: Cut a piece of burlap ribbon to length. Mist the burlap ribbon with Pumpkin Pie Spritzers. Once dry, tie the ribbon into a bow and secure to the top of the embroidery hoop.
ColorBox® Craft Ink is perfect for use on fabric to create richly colored projects that last season after season.
