Anything but a card

Daniel, you should love this thread.

Stamping isn't just for cards anymore. You can stamp furniture, clothing and home decorations. This thread is for those who want to expand their stamping horizon or for those who just want to see what others are doing.

I don't want to put you into stamping shock with the first post so I'll start out with stamping on paper, but not a card. Guest soaps look nice on a bathroom counter and also make a nice hostess gift or small gift for a friend. I made my own snowflake soaps with a mold, but you can use store bought round soaps in any color because it's the wrapping that makes them special.

You'll need white and blue tissue paper, snowflake stamps (Posh snowflakes used), various shades of blue inks, dye for the white tissue and pigment for the blue tissue, silver ink, round white self-stick labels or white labels or sticker paper and a round punch.

Make a circle pattern two and half times the size of your soap. I traced a dessert plate. Cut out the circles and stamp them with the snowflakes. Stamp a snowflake on each of the sticker circles. Place your stamped tissue circle stamped side down and put your soap in the middle. Fold up one side and then go around the soap pleating and folding up the sides. When the whole circle is folded, place your circle sticker over the top of the folds to hold the tissue in place. You now have pretty, decorated, seasonal soaps. If you're feeling industrious, get some bleached muslin or flour sack towels and stamp them with the same snowflakes. Make sure you heat set the ink. Place the soaps, towels and maybe a scented candle in a basket and you have a really nice gift. Use hearts for Valentin's Day, Shamrocks for St. Patty's Day and so on.

Thumbs up

I do indeed love the thread! Also love the project & you (even tho' you have a 'thing' for snow!), Kathy! LOL

Since guest soaps are (often) more decorative than used, why not go 'full charge' & stamp your soaps?

Use a solvent ink like StazOn. Not only will it work on soap, but it won't transfer to skin if you use the soap!

Mine are the usable ones Daniel with embossed designs on them, so I will just stamp the tissue.But,if I ever find some plain soaps I will stamp with staz-on. Thanks for the idea!

Mine can't be stamped either because the mold I used has a raised snowflake design on it. Now I have to go look in my closet and see if I have any plain, stampable soap. Does anyone remember decorating soaps with decals or stamped tissue and then sealing it with parafin so the design would last?

Yes, Kathy, I remember those. They were pretty at first, but then they looked horrible when they turned yellow! This dates us, huh?

Had a tough time deciding where to put this door hanger. It qualifies for the September challenge thread, the inspiration thread and the Posh stamps by Judi-Kins thread. I decided on the anything but a card because it's not a card even though it's stamped on card stock.

So here is a fall door hanger. The bold leaves are from the falling leaves stamp cube which is becoming my all time favorite stamp. The large brown skeletal leaf I believe is Stampendous. The Posh leaves were stamped in Colorbox chalk, Vivid dye and Fresco inks. The skeletal leaf was stamped with tea dye Distress ink. Stuck a few stickers on to fill in spaces. The welcome is done with stickers too.
