Colouricious stamps

Colouricious stamps small square blocks | Hello! Hooray!

When I visited The Great Northern Quilt Show earlier this year, there were so many amazing stalls – it really was like Christmas had come early! One of my favourites by far was Colouricious, and they had the most beautiful hand carved wooden stamps. I bought a few Colouricious stamps (and it took a while to choose, I must admit!) and a bottle of decolourant, which looked fab. Well, yesterday I finally got around to trying them out! 

Testing my Colouricious stamps

I had pre-washed my fabrics so that I was ready to go, and started with the square geometric blocks. I just played around really, as this is the first time that I had used decolourant. It basically does what it says on the tin – it removes some of the colour once you have stamped and ironed over it. The more you use and the more you iron, the more colour is taken away, and the fun thing is that you don’t really know how the colours will look!


Stamping with decolourant


My first attempts on the purple looked like this once I had ironed them, and I tried some out on pink too. I really like the contrast between the colours here! I decided to make a few patchwork squares which I’ll use in a future project.

Christmas stamps

I recently added some of the Christmas stamps to my collection, and have some ideas for creating a few cards – whether I’ll be able to get them made in time for this Christmas is another story! I stamped some snowflakes and a tree onto some red and green fabrics – the red was definitely more successful than the green.

I’m really excited to start working on some new projects with these gorgeous stamps, so look out for more in the future! 🙂 I would highly recommend these stamps – the detail is wonderful and they are such good quality.

    I love the Colouricious videos and had been planning to buy some of their beautiful stamps— guess I waited too long! Do you know how I could get in touch with them, or buy any block sets?

      Hi Jo! I’m not sure unfortunately – I can’t seem to find anything about what has happened to them!
