Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Before I really got into stamping, I used to sew and quilt. I loved going to quilting stores and looking at all of the beautiful, colorful fabrics, especially Batiks.

 

 

 

The vibrant colors and softness of the patterns have always been a favorite of mine.

 

This week on StampTV, one of the episodes is on Stenciling with Impressabilities and I am amazed at how this mimics Batik fabrics.

 

This week's inspiration challenge is to look at these Batik photos and create a card that is inspired by what you see. Maybe you want to try the stenciling technique. Maybe the Batiks remind you of a sunny summer day. Whatever way you are inspired, make your card and tell us the inspiration behind it in your card details in the gallery.

 

Here is my card for this challenge:

Fun challenge! I already have an idea... but off to bed for tonight.
Beautiful colors....will need to try this technique
hahaha how funny is this? I, the NON sewer, have a basket full of batik fabric......a crafty chic through & through even if it takes me years to complete a project, ha!

Your card (as always!) is BEAUTIFUL!
It was meant for me to do this challenge, I just got a Impressabilities and was trying to figure out the sandwich for this :). And believe it or not I already did my card and have it up yahooooo.
Wonderful inspiration, Gina! The fabrics are so beautiful! Your card is gorgeous! I love the embossing and stenciling! Here is my card for the challenge: http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/inspire20-batik-inspired?context=user
I don't have Impressabilities to stencil, so I went with the colors and batik patterns of the fabrics as my inspiration.
Can't wait to get started!!
Love the inspiration fabrics, reminds me of all of the sarongs that I bought when we went to Maui. Your card is awesome, love the bg pattern with those butterflies. Here is mine:
