Stamping Inspiration - Fabric Bags

I've been taking some more product pics today; I've been approached by one of the top cardmaking magazines in the UK who would like a picture of my Caravan of Love stamp in a little feature so I've redone that picture.  I'm thrilled to bits to have been approached for this :-D

At the same time, I started to take a few more shoots to inspire people on how to use their Skull and Cross Buns stamps.  I made a custom stamp for my Mum to give as a gift and she made a sweet little cotton gift bag for it to go in and what better way to customise it than stamping on it, of course!

I used a Versa Craft ink pad on this one (sometimes they're known as Fabrico).  It's a great multi-purpose ink pad which you can use on paper and wood as well as fabric, you simply heat set it with a non-steam iron and then it's permanent and can be washed.

The birdie in the stamp is my new Sleepy Birdie, coming to my shops soon in a pair like my mini and midi ones.

Right, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my Bank Holiday weekend, I hope you're having a great one, too!

(P.S. don't forget to enter my stamp giveaway, it ends Tues 1st June at midnight!)


  1. Those are great! Lovely idea!

  2. Hi there,
    is this a versa ink pad, or specifically something called craft ink? I have a versa ink pad or two but haven't seen a craft ink one, and can't find the other one you mention....
