Home Sweet Home ~ Fashionable Stamping Challenges


The lovely Yvonne suggested 'Home Sweet Home' for our latest  challenge at FSC. We would love to see your Home Sweet Home projects as long as we can see some stamping on your project and you follow the theme, literally anything goes. Marina from Cottage Crafts is our generous sponsor. Please do head over to Fashionable Stamping Challenges HQ to see some fantastic projects created by the Stampettes.

As you know I am slightly obsessed with fabric still, so I decided to make a little coin purse. There are loads of free sewing tutorials out there for all sorts of projects and the purse was simple to make. But I had to un-pick the zip and re-sew it, I don't think I ever put a zip in first time LOL!! I was lucky enough to win a set of  these beautiful house stamps from the Artistic Stamper a while ago and thought they would be perfect for this challenge. They stamped beautifully on linen using black archival ink. I then heat set the ink and used fresco finish paints by paperartsy to paint the houses.


It would be lovely if you would join us this fortnight and share your stamping projects. 

Touch wood computer seems to be ok, perhaps the defrag helped, so off to do a spot of commenting now.


I'm entering this for the following challenges


Take care and Happy Crafting. xxx

You always come up with someone unique for FSC.
This is such an adorable coin purse but you do make me laugh when you say such a template is simple to work with, have you seen how a sewing machine likes to pick a fight with me.
