Altenew | Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new Watercolor Brush Marker Refills. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Janette Kausen, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my watercolor embroidery canvas:

I love it when experiments go the right way, LOL! When the Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush Marker Refills showed up at my door, I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I tossed many ideas around and thought they weren’t out of the box enough. That’s when a light bulb went off, and I thought would they look good on fabric.

So, I tried, and I was excited when it went right!

Here’s how I created this colorful watercolor embroidery canvas:

Place a piece of linen-cotton canvas fabric on a glass mat.

Use a glass mat just in case the water or the ink didn’t absorb in the fabric. It would be easy to clean up.

Once the water on the fabric, start adding ink to the material.

Add as much color or different color as you desire. I used four different colors: Frest Lemon, Sunkissed, Turquoise, and Crimson.

Let the color take their time and move before you pick up the fabric.

Once you have the desired look, pick up the piece of fabric carefully; remember the mat is glass, so the liquid is sitting right on top of that glass.

Clean off the residue and place the piece of fabric back on the glass mat. Hoop it so it can dry. I used a heat tool because I was impatient.

Once the fabric dries, cut away the excess material, and now you’re ready to add a sentiment.

Before that could happen, I realized that I loved the backside of the fabric because it was a bit more subdued. So I changed it.

Now its time to add the sentiment.

Die-cut the word blessed from the Mega Blessed Die Set and adhere it to the front of the fabric.

Beautiful, easy, and fun to create. It’s a fantastic wall hanging home decor piece.

Let’s take another look:

Your Next Stamp: Celebrating 10 Years!

Hello everyone!! I’m incredibly excited to be here today. Your Next Stamp is celebrating 10 years. As a former design team member, I feel honored to celebrate with them.

I’ve always loved their stamp sets, dies, and gumdrops (those are my favorite). Their new September release is nothing short of amazing. You will not be disappointed. The new release products will be available on the YNS Store on September 12, 2019.

Let’s take a look at what I created:

Gift pouches are always fun to make and also fun to receive. It was fun creating these from start to end.

You can fill these with money, gift cards, small necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc. Perfect with no gift wrapping needed.

Here’s how to create these gift pouches:

Gather your supplies. You will need:

Fabulous Feathers Stamp Set
Dancing Dragonflies Stamp Set
Linen-Cotton Canvas Fabric
Cork Fabric
Interfacing
Pearl Snaps
Snaps Pliers
VersaCraft Black Ink
BERNINA sewing machine

Here’s how to create it:

Preparing fabric:

Cut two pieces of linen-cotton canvas fabric to 13.5 x 4, rounding the ends.

Cut one piece of cork to 3 x 4, round the corners.

Cut one piece of interfacing to 11 x 4.

Preparing for sewing:

Fold the straight edge of the cork fabric 1/4 to hide the raw edges.

Clip the cork to the top of one piece of the linen-cotton canvas fabric.

Sewing:

Edgestitch the fold down 1/8 in.

On the back of this exterior piece, line the fusible fleece to the stitched line and iron in place.

Align the exterior and interior pieces, right side together.

Stitch around the entire pouch using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 3″ gap for turning.

Turn the piece inside out, push out the corners, and press.

Take the straight edge of the pouch and fold it up to the original stitch line and press.

Edgestitch all the way around. Backstitch at the top of the pouch on both sides.

Add the pearl snap using the pliers.

Stamping on the pouch:

Use VersaCraft Ink to stamp onto fabric.

Decide on the place of the design and stamp.

Super simple and easy.

Let’s take a closer look:

 

Let’s not forget the back of each pouch:

Decorting the back is important too. You can carry the design around to the back or completely change things up. Let your imagination sore!

So what do you think? Stamping doesn’t always have to be on cardstock. Stamping on fabric is just as easy.

Wait, the fun doesn’t stop here!

We have PRIZES for you!

Your Next Stamp will select the winning comments from the YNS blog and IG. One random comment from each preview day will win one of the products previewed on that day! All comments must be left by September 15, 2019, and the winner will be announced on September 17, 2019. 

So what do you think? Would you give stamping on fabric a try? I would love to hear all about it.

Altenew September 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stencils. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Kelly Janes, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my traveler’s notebook cover page:

Take a look at the inside pages:

Traveler's notebook pages

I have to admit when I saw the new It’s for You Stamp Set, I knew I had to have it based on a trip I took last year with my daughter to Cuba.

We visited a street art museum, and one of the things that grabbed my daughter’s attention was the rotary phone. She was curious about it and wanted to know how it worked. I laughed and decided to tape her trying to use it.

Here’s how I create this page:

I wanted to keep my design clean and simple.

I used the Tall Alpha Die to decorate the cover of the notebook.

So I stamped the telephone and the sentiment on the right bottom corner of the page using the Mini MISTI and permanent black ink.

Round the edges of the photo.

Mount the photo on top of the cardstock and adhere it to the cover of the traveler’s notebook.

Add your text, and you’re done!
