Material Monday

Lots of you have been very excited to see Fabrics in the New Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalogue. However a lot of you have also said that you love it but asked what would you do with it. To try and answer that question I have decided to start an occasional series of posts featuring the fabrics and different ways of using them. The posts will be on a Monday so the series will be called Material Mondays!

Now I should say I am not an expert needlewoman, and its been more year’s than I care to count since I last used fabric, so some of the ideas will be very straightforward and the experts out there may well find them very simplistic. I hope that I am not alone in having only basic skills and hope you will join me on the journey to discover fun things to do with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Fabrics.

Today I am going to show you how you can easily incorporate the pretty fabrics onto a card. The texture that they bring is wonderful.

Card Featuring Flirtacious Fabric
For this card I have simply die cut a couple of flowers using the Fun Flowers Die and added them as a layer on my card’s focal point. For the best results I put two layers of fabric between two layers of scrap paper and ran it through my big shot. This just made sure that the threads from the fabric did not get caught in my die.

I hope you have enjoyed this first post of the Material Monday series – we did not even need a needle and thread!

Happy Stampin’
