PKS Guest Designer Week 30 Day 3 with Gaby

This is Gaby welcoming you to the Peachy Keen Stamps Home Blog
and to Day 3 of my week long Guest Designer spot!

For today's post, I decided to venture into cutting fabric with their dies

 My niece could not keep a straight face.... I don't know what was more fun, trying to take her picture or creating this shirt!

 If you own these dies, you will agree why I got so happy to have found the fabric that matched so perfectly!
After all my excitement and after taking all the pictures and creating this post----  I realized that I had not painted their tongues, eyes or nose!!

Here is a picture with their eyes, nose and tongues painted... now I have to wait 24 hrs for ink to set and than I can iron and wash..... my niece was already wearing it!! [smile], good thing she is a good sport!

I used Peachy Keen Stamps - CottageCutz dies that you can find at their STORE
The package comes with the faces and cute critters stamps included.

I followed the included instructions to cut stiff/thin fabric.
Ironed to Heat N Bond, run through die cut/emboss machine and ironed on to shirt.
I made my own stamp pad using fabric ink. Yes, it is washable!

For more detail instructions and supplies visit my blog at

Diversity: Dies, Fabric, Nature

@ sweetmango
I used Jacquard Textile ink --
spread some of that on a clean (new)inking pad (created my own inking pad) with a brush. I purchased the textile ink at Joann. Hope this helps and thanks for your question. ~Gaby
