Guest #60 HERE is Mrs Ghastlie Annie and a Reliable IRON giveaway and 12 Aurifil Threads.....2 giveaways!

Thank you so much Madame Samm for inviting me back to Sew We Quilt to share some creativity and to inspire others as they have done for me. And, hello Ghastly blog hoppers!-we are all meeting over here..Schedule here
Today I am having a Ghastlie Tea Party! 
Oh please, do come in...

The tea cups are paper pieced.  I fussy cut the images and fused them to the background fabric using Wonder Under.

Positioning the images to line up as I wanted them to was rather tricky and my seam ripper was a little busier than I liked.  But, where there's a will there's a way!...not to mention a sheer determination on my part to have my way!  I have a paper piecing tutorial that you may refer to here.  As well as a tutorial for this fun paper pieced stripe border (here).
What I'd like to show you today is the rubber stamping on fabric.  This too was sheer determination on my part to come up with a permanent, washable solution for my desire to incorporate my rubber stamping with my sewing/quilting.

These are your supplies needed
Fabric or project you wish to stamp on
Ruler and air soluble pen (optional)
Small ruler that is thicker than standard
StazOn Ink Pad
StazOn Cleaner
Rubber Stamps
If you just plan to stamp an image, you won't need rulers.  The rulers are for stamping words in a straight line.
Draw your lines with a standard ruler and air soluble pen.


Place the small thicker ruler along your drawn line and be sure to hold it in place until your letters for that line are all stamped.  When stamping the letters, keep the wood against the ruler. 


Unless you have an absolutely perfectly spaced set of letter/number stamps, they will most likely look a bit wonky - which is exactly what I like about this process.  Although spacing of the letters takes practice and most likely will be wonkily spaced, at least they will all be lined up along the bottom edge.  
I normally wait until the purple lines disappear before I work with the stamped area with an iron.  Depending on your fabric, the heat from the iron can set your disappearing ink into the fabric which makes it harder to remove but not impossible...yes, I know this from experience.  But, if you're in a hurry to get to working with it, just dip a small paintbrush in water and hurry the disappearing along quickly.  Remember, the StazOn ink is permanent, it dries quickly and is washable so the water will not disturb your stamping...yes, I know this from experience as well.


This particular alphabet set of rubber stamps I found at Michael's in their $1 bins. What a bargain! I like the mix of upper and lower case letters.
There's no limit to what and where you can stamp on your projects.  It's a wonderful alternative to the times you are limited to where an image or words are placed on your project when you have to use an ink jet printer.
I'll be watching for your projects using this technique. 
Happy stamping everyone! 
I'm on the Ghastlie Blog Hop today as well and have a couple of additional projects on my blog as more inspiration for you, so hop over and check them out.  There's a little giveaway for you to have a chance at winning too. 

And to you, Madame Samm, thank you ever so much for coming up with this fun and inspiring Ghastly blog hop and inviting me back here on Sew We Quilt to share some of the fun I've been having!

  141. It is a super hard choice, but i really would like to win the iron. Thanks

  142. Mrs. Annie Ghastlie's blog is great! Thanks for helping me find her!. If I win, I'd be happy with either the iron or the thread. If I have to choose, I guess the thread would be my first choice but I might change my mind in a minute! ~Jeanne sponsored by Marlene at Stitchin by the Lake

  145. I still need a new iron... mine spits more water out the sides than comes out as steam, so I've had to press everything dry for, oh, a year. I'm convinced that if I don't win one before, this will be an easy order for the husband to place for Christmas, though!

  146. Annie's tutorial was marvelous, just like she is in real! What a talent she has! I think that nice orange iron needs a new home in Wisconsin, don't you?

  149. I'd love to win this iron. A good iron in the house would be a wonderful thing, and the fact that it is bright orange would keep it from getting lost while not in use :o)
    Been following here for a while and have already been to Annie's blog and am following.

    I would love to try the Aurifil threads... but if you pick me and someone else has already chosen the thread, then that gorgeous iron would definitely be welcome and used in my home!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  156. My first choice would be the iron. Mine is not the best for quilting.

    ReplyDelete

  166. These past weeks have been sew much fun. Hard to believe its coming to an end. I am a follower of both blogs and although a hard decision think I would go for the Aurifil thread. I have always wanted to try it as I hear such great things about it.

  168. Hi Samm . Thank you for having Annie post today. What a talented lady.
    I would pick the iron. The dial that sets the temperature on mine broke off so I am just winging it for now.
    Have a wonderful day!

  171. Oh I would love the orange iron...have love following along..

    ReplyDelete
  172. What a cute project. I didn't know there was a permanent ink for fabric. If I were to win, I would choose the thread. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  173. That is the coolest little project. I LOVE the ghastlies and am loving the blog hop. So seasonal!

    Are you really making me choose between two fab prizes? I'm a wannabe so I really DO need both. I've never tried these much fussed about Aurifil threads so I NEEEED those but I'm also using the same iron my husband (then boyfriend) gave me for Christmas almost 30 years ago (I still married him and wouldn't you know he brought me roses for no particular reason this past weekend ... awwwww).

    If I must choose, practicality wins out and I could most use a new iron. It's prettier than mine, that's for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Love the hanging. I neeeeed the iron.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Love the iron, but mine is not dead yet, so I'd have to say the Aurifil.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Loved the paper pierced stripped border. Awesome. I don't just want the iron.......I NEED the iron. My is leaking like a sieve! Thank you sponsors for this givaway.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I have been loving the Ghastlie projects.

    Yep, my iron died last week so I can use a new one. I seem to burn them out at unbelievable speed.

    I am a follower too. This has been an amazing giveaway. We all hate to see it end.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Love, love, love that little quilt. I would love the thread too. I've never used Aurifil thread.

    ReplyDelete
  179. My iron sadly needs to be replaced so my choice would be the iron. Although after everything I've read about the Aurifil threads, it's a close second.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Bwahahahaha! Ms. Annie Ghastlie - Oh this is an adorable project!! Fantastic tutorial, too! Thanks for all you do - both you and Madame Ghastlie!!!

  185. This is my favorite Halloween project ever!! I am in love with the Ghastlies and those teacups are wonderful! Now I need to get some rubber stamps and ink so I can make my own Ghastlie tea party. Thank you!! Oh, I would love to win the iron!

    ReplyDelete
  186. I love what Annie has made for the this post and the blog hop. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  187. I just ordered my new iron, so I think the Aurifil would be wonderful! I would love to try it! Thank you to Mrs. Annie Ghastlie for the tutorial and I may have to look into your post card swap. That definitely sounds fun!

    ReplyDelete
  188. I'd absolutely love to win the iron, or the thread (I've been using nothing but aurifil since I started quilting and now use it for all stitching as well! Love, love, LOVE the ghastly bloghop today! What a great idea. Will have to add this to my to do list.....

    ReplyDelete
  189. I think I'd take the thread, I'd love to try it out. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  190. I would love to win the iron, but the thread would be lovely as well. It's hard to make a choice. Thanks again, Madame Samm for another wonderful giveaway. I'm a loyal follower and my sponsor is lilypadquilting.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I knew she was going to be on here with a Ghastlies project, I just knew it! I haven't followed her before but since following you and reading and looking and browsing, I've "met" her (even if she didn't meet me) and just KNEW she would be making a Ghastly appearance!

    I want both prizes, but if you make me choose you KNOW I am going to say GIVE ME THE IRON! Heck, even if someone else wins the iron and I win the thread, you should totally switch us because you love ma and my love for an iron more than whoever else might win. I'm telling you, I didn't realize until yous tarted this campaign how much I need a new iron but I refuse to buy one until these giveaways are over! So just make it easy on me, K? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  192. Such a fun tutorial. I'm a follower here & just signed up at Annie's blog. I'm registered through Shade Tree Quilting. Thanks for the giveaway.

  194. This has been so much fun and I've learned so many, many things. I have oodles of ideas and instructions waiting in my "create" file folder. Thanks, Madame Samm. Either giveaway would be wonderful though if I had to choose, I'd probably say the Reliable iron would be #1.
    Have a ghastlie day!
