Stamping on fabric

Right, this is my first attempt at stamping on fabric. I didn't have a practice run first which maybe I should have done! Anyway, hopefully I'll get better ready for next attempt.

So I took one of Blake's T-shirts and stamped on it using the Varsity Alphabet stamp set and Fox and Friends. I had intended Blake to model my finished piece of work but he's nodded off after a busy morning and no way am I waking a sleeping bubba! Plus I haven't heat set the stamping yet so maybe that's just as well...

I haven't used Stampin' Up! inks for this as I wanted something that would stay after washing, dribbling and food stains etc so I've used special fabric ink pads. I stamped the letters first and then masked them off with stamped images cut out on post it notes and then stamped Fox and Friends images around his name.

I took Blake to the Doctors this morning to have it confirmed that he is lactose intolerant so from Monday he's on some special lactose free milk and a lactose free diet for 4-6 weeks. That's not going to be much fun for him, but if it helps him to feel better, than it has to be worth it. Being as my monkey is asleep, here's a photo of him being kissed by his big bro Zac - a rare moment if ever there was one.....

I'm going to join in with:
Have a great weekend,

  1. Victoria, I can't believe you didn't have a practice run! This is fabby indeed. We allow 2 entries so you're ok hon! Thanks for playing along with our Sweet Stampin challenge x

  2. Love the sweat shirt, will be delighted to see Blake in it. Sorry about the lactose intolerances, my son developed it at 9 months and it was over a year before he could have food with lactose, but then he was fine and now loves milk at Thirty. Hope all goes well for you Hugs Bee
