Today the Designer Crafts Connection is playing with a fun line of stamps and ink, designed by my friend Ann Butler for Clearsnap. I used two of her 4-1/4" square Background Basics stamps, along with three colors from her Crafter's palette of pigment inks, to make a nice, neutral fabric panel for a small 15" accent pillow.
After stamping a grid with the Checks pattern in Desert Sand on cream cotton fabric, I over-stamped the center block with the Picnic pattern in Lilac, and two of the corner blocks in Blueberry.
I had this pretty hand-dyed silk ribbon in my stash, which I adhered to the borders of the fabric panel with double-sided fabric tape. Minimal sewing, maximal cute!
Look for the DCC logo in each designer's sidebar to hop through their blogs to see what they made with Ann's stamps and inks. Click here to visit Ann's blog, too!
