Hello everyone… There is always something in our lives to give thanks to God with a grateful heart. And today, I have a Fall/Thanksgiving project I would love to share with you all.
Since when I was at Elementary school, I love cross-stitching and hand embroidery. It’s been a while I have not done that actually. My card today is inspired by it and Fall leaves colors, for sure. Not too long ago, I saw a tutorial video on YouTube about stamping on fabric for a mixed media project, but then I thought I need to try it with the hoop die set I have. And… I found a fat quarter plain fabric in my sewing drawer to use for this project. So Perfect! 😀
First, I traced the circle using the hoop die from the Hoop It Up Die Set with pencil. Then I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Blessings Stamp Set with Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink pad. Using my mini craft iron, I heat set the ink to dry permanently.
And then I cut the fabric along the inside tracing circle.
I think next time, I want to really do some embroidery with this stamp set! 🙂
I die cut the hoop 6 times to create a thick chipboard look. Using liquid glue I stacked 3 of them together, then I added the fabric, and then stacked another 3 on top of it.
For the leaves, I stamped the leaves from the Autumn Blessings Stamp Set with Autumn Ombre Ink Pad several times, and then I fussy cut them with scissors.
I added the hoop on the card with liquid adhesive, then I arranged the leaves on it, glued them with liquid adhesive and I added some 3D foam tape under some of the leaves that sticking out of the hoop for extra support.
I finished this card with some natural twine ribbon and some of the beautiful Electric Orange Prism Sequins. I also use liquid adhesive to add them on the card. I am so very thankful that I have a creative God who created this world that is full with so many inspirations for us to create and to express our love to Him and others through our handmade projects.
I also share this project at A Jillian Vance Design Blog. Hopefully, you all enjoy this card today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have fabulous blessed day!
