Fabric Fusion

I saw some packs of canvas shapes for sale in my local craft store, and decided that I could make my own for a tenth of the price, so off I trotted back home and scoured the internet for cotton canvas by the metre.  Said canvas has arrived, and I've made some shapes.  And I have a lot of canvas left :)

So I thought I'd stamp on a piece, because the challenge at Waltzingmouse Fanatics is to use fabric (as well as Waltzingmouse stamps).

And I liked the inspiration photo in the latest FUSION challenge, specifically the cushions:
BTW:  What is WRONG with Blogger?  Errors on saving, errors previewing.  It's almost like you have to wait till it's not looking before you can complete your post.  Talk about having a hissy fit.


  1. Love your take on the inspiration - those two grey lines behind the beautiful canvas are perfect! And I'm having the same hissy fit Blogger issues. God help us all if it shuts down! lol!

  2. A cushion card ... how brilliant ... so creative, so inspired, Shirley ... love those super neat frayed edges! I'm only hissy fitting with Blogger for commenting and have taken to copying before hitting publish, otherwise I lose it all! Just a thought ... Wordpress??! Anita :)

  3. Gorgeous - I love the stamped fabric!
    I laughed at your blogger comment - I just completed a post and I thought it was me!

  4. Fabulous! I really like the flower stamped canvas and the way you've used the same colours in the sentiment. Great work. Thanks for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics!

    BTW - I know what you mean about Blogger - keeps giving me errors too, but still working.

  5. Wowzers! This is fabulous! The cushion in the inspiration photo is gorgeous and so is your card! The amazing stamped burlap panel (sweet!!!) looks awesome against the two simple grey stripes!

    Winner, winner for sure!

    (...heck, not sure if I even want to post my card now that I have seen this beauty!)

  6. Shirley, WOW!!! OH WOW!!
    The grounding of the striping, the lovely fabric and the matching sentiment colors - work of art!

    Thanks for joining us at FUSION, You can play here and add you works of art to the Gallery any 'ole day!!

  7. wow Shirley! this is absolutely gorgeous... and genius. I always see packs of fabric at my craft stores and think... nice prints but what the heck would I do with them? now I know!

    I have trouble with internet explorer. everytime I want to open a site I get... error. close the program. when I click on close, then the program opens up. what the heck???? progress huh?

    have a great week!

    I love the bold colours you stamped your flowers and the fabric adds real texture to them. The way you stamped the sentiment is so creative too.
