Muslin bags - five cool

CASEd from Lisa Foster at Pretty Pasttimes.

Talk about quick and cute!  These adorable muslin bags are my absolute favorite project that we're making at my Quick & Cute Stocking Stuffer Class.  Who knew how easy and fun it was to color on these bags with the Color Me Christmas stamp set?!

Stamping The Image—I inked the stamp up really well with StazOn Black ink, stamped on the bag front, and let the ink soak into the fabric for a few seconds.  TIP: You may want to insert a piece of scrap chipboard into the bag, to give it a more sturdy surface for stamping, and so that the ink won't bleed through to the other side of the bag. 

Coloring On Muslin—I used a Blender Pen with my Classic Ink Pads (ink smooshed onto the lid and used as a palette) to color in the images.  I like to color over the entire area with a color, then add a second layer of color on the shaded spots.

White Chalk Marker Accents—I colored the white areas with the new White Chalk Marker for a bright white contrast.  TIP: Color carefully.  Too much pressure can easily fray and ruin your marker tip.

Dazzling Details Accents—I always like some sparkle, so I added some Clear Dazzling Details to the fur on Santa's coat and the candy cane.  I LOVE the results! 

Muslin - tree 

Expressions Thinlits—Oh my!  As cute as these bags are, they wouldn't be the same without the "merry" die-cuts!  I simply hung them on the pull-strings without adhering them.  You could probably add some Multipurpose Glue to help them stay in place better.  TIP: Don't forget to use wax paper between the dies and card stock to help them pop out of the die easier!

Bleed-Alert TIP: You can see an example here of how my Cherry Cobbler ornaments bled into the Old Olive tree branches.  Simply heat-set with the Heat Tool for a few seconds between each color and you shouldn't have a problem.

Rudolph looks great with a sparkly nose and scarf!

Muslin - stocking 

The stocking is little smaller than the other images.  Next time, I'll put two on the front!

But, look at how the White Chalk Marker and Dazzling Details give this sock some pizzazz!
