I mentioned that I use a heavy weight Pellon interface(71F) on the back to give my cards some oomph! And I also use Sulky Totally Stable stabilizer to print out my labels. I think I may have said in a previous post I use Solvy...it's SULKY....duh! I buy this by the bolt and only brought a small piece with me so I couldn't remember the name! But I was close...
Anyway, if you want to print out a label just create your label in word or other document software. I then use my chalk pastels (make sure it's the chalk) and rub the side of the chalk along the entire piece. I like to color at least a yard to have on hand. Next, using a foam brush dipped in water, wipe over the chalk. The chalk will blend just like watercolor and gives the stabilizer a nice color. Once the Sulky is dry (I usually hang on a pant hanger!), I cut to 8 1/2" x 11" and iron lightly onto copy paper and feed through my printer. Works great. Just make sure you don't use a really hot iron to iron onto copy paper...it will stick.
After printing out your label, cut to size and iron onto the back of the pellon/fiber card. I finish the edges by painting the batting/pellon with fabric paint, so you don't see much white...then stitch around the edges with a decorative machine stitch.
This year I ran out of my Sulky and had to buy another iron on interfacing. I used Pellon 809 Decor Bond which worked through printer too. I just put two pieces of double sided tape on the top of my copy paper, attached the cut 8 1/2" x 11" piece of pellon and fed through printer. I didn't color these pieces but I'm sure process below would work.
So now on to some other projects!!! Wonder what I'll do next!!!! Too many ideas and too much social activity!
