Using up those Scraps

Hello everyone, I am sharing a couple of cards that form part of the Fifteen Minute Blog post found on the Design Team Blog today. Our aim is to create cards that can be made in fifteen minutes or less, using a variety of Chocolate Baroque stamps. The cards may be clean and simple in design, or simply quick and easy to make. You can find a whole host of inspiration in the blog posts, and the Design Team contribute as a group, so you will see a real mix of styles and techniques.

For my cards today, I am using some fabric scraps left over from my recent journal pages. The fabric had been coloured with Distress re-inkers, and then dried completely. I used Fossilized Amber for one piece, and Shabby Shutters for the other piece. I stamped a simple floral image from the Essence of Nature and Autumn Fairy Collection stamp sets on the scraps, using Black Archival Ink, and then frayed the edges of the fabric.

I used iron on interfacing on the reverse of the fabric to attach it to the card blank, and then attached a little pearl button to the panel. I stamped a greeting from the Mackintosh Sentiments stamp set on each card to finish.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Love very much the effect of stamps and distress inks on fabric, it's a great technque, thanks for sharing this brilliant idea. Your autumnal cards look wonderfully with the kraft tones and these beautiful stamps!

Fabulous use of your lovely scraps Judith. They look so effective against the Kraft card.

The buttons add a lovely touch combined with the fabric & I like the way your frayed edges provide a frame. The kraft card texture being often fibrous in nature adds to the sense of textile art created by your use of fabric for stamping on - the Mackintosh font is beautifully simple to complement & I like the way the buttons pick up on the signature Mackintosh two dots above another.
