I have had a very quite crafting time for the past few months. I in the autumn I went to a quilting class locally and had fun, so I made a quilt on my own using the same method as I had learnt.
All made from fabric that I had in my stash!
I do like the strip method, but I suppose I should try something else.
But then I have been cheating…
I have made four seat pads that have been stamped and then stitched with a zigzag to make them look quilted. There are great for extra seating or taking outside to add to garden chairs and can just be thrown in the washing machine.
You may have noticed I love houses and house stamps, I really can’t get enough of them.
this stamp comes from a set designed by Nathalie Kalbach of N*Studio, in the box you will find a cling rubber stamp, a foam stamp, and a stencil/mask. the foam stamp is great for using with paint and it is eally 2 stamps in one, the plain back can be used as a solid stamp to put colour behind the image. The possibilities are endless for cards, scrapbooks and mixed media work.
My card is a 12 x 12 sheet folded in half, I love his size of card, but envelopes are not easy!
I made two masks for the images, and stamped them with the Dylusions number stamp from the Basic Backgrounds cling rubber set.
Here you can see the mask on half of the image. (sometimes I get so interested in what I am doing that I forget to take photographs)
The words are also from the Dylusions range, this one comes from Laugh ’til You Leak. These words are perfect for art journals and scrapbook pages! But or a card to send I felt it had to be changed, and I know that I have done this before.
I then stamped it twice on black card, I stamped in white and embossed with clear powder.
My pop of colour was done with Dylusions paint and I have deliberately made it rather scribbly.
I love my card, but it was a surprise to see that Nat has used the stamps in an art journal page on her blog yesterday so pop over and see what the artist has created in her post My Art Journal Today, but don’t judge me to harshly!

So here is my project I have used Kaffee Klatsch one of Nat Kalbach’s stamp set.
I have made a wall hanging using the Artist Canvas Pad it is an American A4 size pad of lovely textured canvas.
First I used the Dreamweaver Large Scales stencil and and a Colorbox Crafters Pad and inked through the stencil.
this is a really easy stencil to repeat across the canvas
I love that with theCrafters and a brush you can blend this ink, I have not tried to make it even, but you can not see the joins, then I cut the canvas in half
then I stamped
I love this randon effect.
on the other half I just stamped.
I added some red Woodware wire which I had twisted around the posts on the Plastic Jig. I also used some wadding under the canvas and stitched it.
I Frantaged the tops of some brads and added these
They are perfect in the circles of the stamp.
Thanks for visiting, and don’t forget to comment and hope along!
