Swallowtail Stampin Up ♥ Stamp it on Fabric Cushion Covers Project

April 26, 2015

Learn how to stamp on fabric with acrylic paints and  Swallowtail and Larger Than Life Alphabet and numbers  stamps from Stampin' Up! I  made 2  decorative cushion covers  to demonstrate this technique and the stunning image I got with Swallowtail Stamp.
I think the results are quite spectacular.  I hope you like them  and enjoy Stamping on fabric!!

Swallowtail and Larger than Life Alphabet and Numbers are  superb to stamp on fabric. Use them to make light upholstery projects like throws, canvas, lampshades or any home decorative handcrafted items made out of fabric, leather, glass, wood, paper  ...  I  also can imagine  a scarf,  a fabric belt, a personalized apron made with fabric stamped with this huge butterfly.

 I stamped the name of my daughter on one of the  cushion covers  using Versamark clear ink and silver emboss powder. After washing the name of my daughter remained gray but the sparkle of the embossing powder fell of so please be aware that this technique works for items that do not require washing ( this was an experiment only)

The technique promises crisp images up to 20 washes. Cold water, handwash recommended,

 I'll be featuring more sewing projects with Larger Than Life Alphabet and Numbers Set of 38 clear stamps, ideal for  personalized projects.

  2. Absolutely love these but as they were retired recently I went on EBay to buy a swallowtail. Imagine my surprise when I received it today and it came from you Bibi! Makes it extra special. And the most beautiful little card. Thank you for the inspiration and the stamp. Love your work and colour combos.
