Making a case for stamping on canvas!

Reference page 21 in our Spring Catalog.

This is an item that you could have easily overlooked in our Spring Catalog.  They picture one little piece sewn onto a card front.   You get a 12 x 12 piece of white canvas for only $3.95.   Stamping on this canvas is only the beginning!  I made four cards each with very different looks.  I really believe that you would enjoy playing with this medium!

The first card I will show you uses the single stamp, ears to you.  We will be making this card at my March Hostess Club meetings.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen stamping on a textured canvas you don’t get the clear image that we are used to.  Keep that in mind.  The cute little bunnies were colored in with markers directly onto the stamp.  Then “huffed” (that’s when you breath onto your stamp to add moisture, sort of like you do when you clean your glasses) and stamped onto the canvas.  I also spritzed the stamped image with a spritzer filled with 10 drops of chocolate chip reinker and 91% alcohol.   Followed up with a quick spritz with shimmer paint.

I used pool party core’dination paper for the top half, embossed with our cloudy day embossing folder, then sanded.  The bottom portion is the gumball green core’dination paper embossed with the SAB embossing folder called vine street and also sanded.

Take a good look at the little bottle cap with the flower inside.  This is a really cool trick that I read about and am having fun with!  I was concerned about using the bottle caps from the Spring Catalog on my cards due to the thickness of them.  I thought they are great for scrapbooking, but, was hesitant to use them on my cards.  Well, of course there is a way to fix that little concern!  All you have to do is place the bottle cap between two acrylic plates, place them on the base of the Big Shot platform.  (Do not use any tabs!)  Then run through the Big Shot and whaaalaaa you have a nicely squished bottle cap, perfect for using on your cards!

Give these little tips a  try along with stamping on our canvas and let me know how you do!

Happy Stamping!

P.S. More canvas cards to be pictured in the next 3 posts!
