I have been using different mediums in my current crafting endeavors to see what results I can produce.
While I love the look of store bought clothes and can almost always find something cute for a child, I still wanted to experiment with colors and stamps from Stampin’ Up! and create my own designs.
My first thought was infant under garments specifically the onesie. This is what I came up with on my first try.
I used Summer Solstice (item # 122024) stamp set and Many Marvelous Markers (item # 119806).
Colors: Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive
These supplies can be ordered in my online store. www.megandeyoung.stampinup.net
I inked the flower first and stamped the image on transfer paper. The stem is free hand using the Old Olive marker. Lastly I added the leaf, again inking the stamp with the marker. My first attempt with our ink pads left the image looking very heavy, and lots of blobs from too much ink and too many air bubbles in between the fine lines of this particular stamp. You can control it better with the markers.
I cut out my image from the transfer paper and positioned it on the onesie just to see how it looked. Note that because I use the transfer paper the image will actually mirror the image you see now, so the positioning before the final transfer is simply to align the image and give an idea of placement.
I flipped the paper and thus the image and placed it on the other side since that is where I want the flower to be postitioned. After doing this, you want to follow the directions of the transfer paper. All brands vary slightly and will instruct exactly how you should proceed with the transfer depending on the material you are working with. Here is the results after transfering.
The flower is complete. Now I want to add my butterflies. I complete the same inking and stamping process as I did for the flower. After cutting out each butterfly I place them to see how I want them positioned. Again, I follow the instructions of transfer paper. The final product can be seen above. Here are some other ones I created.
This same process can be done in My Digital Studio. It all depends on how you like to create. With the new price of My Digital Studio being only $19.95 (item # 130647) it is a great time to give this fun technique a try.
