Terial Arts and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Terial Arts and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Claire Prezzia’s blog, you are on the right track. If you found your way here on your own, head over to the CardMaker Magazine blog and start hopping from the beginning so you don’t miss a thing!

The theme for our blog hop is Autumn inspired fabric postcards. I have to admit this theme scared me. I don’t sew — at all. I’ve actually been known to staple my kid’s badges to their scout vests rather than pick up a needle and thread!

But we were sent a bottle of Terial Magic Fabric Stabilizer to use in creating our postcards and the bottle says “makes your fabric more paper-like.” So with some of my apprehension relieved and a plan to stamp and cut autumn leaves from fabric, I set out to find some material that would suit my needs.

With my selections made, I followed the directions on the bottle and saturated my fabrics with the Terial Magic, allowed them to air dry for about 15 minutes, and then went over them with a hot iron.

The results actually were somewhat paper-like. The treated fabric took stamping nicely — The images were crisp with no bleeding. It also die-cut really well with no fraying.

I cut a piece of 4 x 6 kraft cardstock for the base of my post card.  On one side I drew the traditional postcard markings: A line down the center approximately 1/2″ from the top and bottom, the word “postcard” and a place for postage.

On the other side, I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner and then placed my fabric leaves around it.  A post on the Imagination International blog suggests sewing your fabric pieces to a cardstock backing. Since I don’t sew, I decided to use Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to attach my leaves which worked really well.

Hope you enjoyed this stop on the hop! For more information on Terial Magic visit the Terial Arts website. For a complete list of stops on the hop visit the CardMaker Magazine blog.

Cardmaker & Quietfire Design Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Quietfire Design and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Yogi Grunwald’s blog, you are on the right track. If you found your way here on your own, head over to the CardMaker Magazine blog so you can start hopping from the beginning! Be sure to visit all the blogs along the hop and leave comments as you go!  When you get to the end, Suzanne from Quietfire Design will have the details on a giveaway for a $50 gift certificate to the Quietfire online store.

I was sent a few stamps to play with. They all had such great sayings it was hard to choose which one to use for my blog hop card. I finally decided to use one of Quietfire’s newer stamps, “The Best Thing I Ever Did” for the blog hop and I plan to use the other ones for some beautiful Christmas cards so be sure to check back and see those creations!

For my card today, I began by creating the background using a stencil and distress inks. I was heavier with the ink in the two opposite corners so your eye would be drawn towards the beautiful sentiment which is the focal point of the card.

I stamped the hand lettered, inspirational saying on white cardstock and cut it out with an oval die. I used dimensional adhesive to lift the sentiment from the front of the card and tucked some die cut flowers underneath it.

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Next up on the hop is Wanda Hentges. If you get lost along the hop you can find a complete list below and at the CardMaker blog.
