This morning was my Holiday Helper class stamping on silk scarves! The event was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to several additional classes. It is amazing to see the creativity blossom in my customers as they explore new avenues. Stamping on the silk scarves is an unusual medium but so much fun and very rewarding especially as each scarf is unique. These scarves make beautiful gifts!
The process for stamping on Silk Scarves is fairly simple. You need your silk scarf which should be ironed before you stamp on the scarf. Select your stamp set and you’ll need craft ink. We used the Craft Stampin’ spots from Stampin’ Up! After the chosen image was stamped randomly on the scarf, we then heat set by ironing the scarf. To protect the scarf while ironing, we put a thin material of cotton over the top of the scarf. So very simple, yet so very beautiful and unique once completed.
Here are two scarves that a client stamped today! I love her creativity in using two different colors and stamp sets for the effect that she wanted.
- The Color Coach is a wonderful resource when looking to coordinate colors on a project. I love to use the Color Coach to find unusual color combination or inspiration to try something new.
- Never be afraid to experiment and push the limits with your crafts. You never know what you’ll discover about yourself especially when it relates to your inner creativity.
- If you enjoy going on weekend crop retreats, consider purchasing Stampin’ Spots! They are smaller and travel great.
