Good morning, hope you are all having a good week.
Today's project was a bit of a 'give it a try, nothing to lose' sort of thing.
I ordered a cushion cover for D and Staci for when they got married, but when it came, the name was missing. Needless to say I was more than a little disappointed, but I thought that somehow I would be able to rescue it.
I thought about using die cut letters but thought they wouldn't stay on very well, and I'm not great with a sewing machine, so I decided to stamp the name using a solvent ink.
But when I looked through all of the crafty stash, we didn't have an alphabet stamp set that was big enough for what I wanted. Then I saw something on line about making your own stamps with fun foam and a die.
So I dug out our Xcut alphabet die set, which has letters approx 1 inch tall. Then I cut them out of some coloured fun foam.
When I had the letters I needed, I stuck them to my stamp press and inked them up and tried them on scrap card first.
I had to fiddle about with them a bit until I was happy with the line up but I got there eventually lol. Then I went for it and stamped on to the cushion front, using a craft sheet inside, so that the ink didn't go through. Then I heat set it with my heat gun.
I think it turned out OK, and at least they can use it now. Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
