Default stamped scarves/clothing

I want to try my hand at stamping a Mother's Day gift. For those of you who have stamped scarves, which type is best:

Also, is there anything else I should consider stamping for mom?
Feel free to post links to your gallery with tips and suggestions.

Thank you in advance,

Well, my mom is 79 and doesn't want much to accumulate in her condo. So I try to make and give gifts that are "disposable" as such. I stamp her Thank You notes, Birthday cards, and Sympathy cards (of which she unfortunately seems to run out way too often.) Make or buy a pretty box or card holder that would fit on her desk or by the phone and fill it with cards, notecards and a pretty pen. Mom's like that.

Oh. And make plenty of masculine cards for her to send as well.

I like that idea! Thank you. So, who knows about the scarves? I am thinking of trying to do some of those as well.

I'm not sure which of the silk scarves on the site you linked are "best", but I do know that Lumiere (the acrylic paint SU sells) is wonderful for stamping on silk - it will drape just as if the paint were part of the fabric.
Heat set the scarf first by putting it in a dryer with a damp towel.
If using other acrylic paints, you must mix them with a textile medium which will make the paint very flexible and seem to become part of the fabric. Some brands of acrylic paint that have the textile medium already added are Americana and Ceramcoat by Delta. I like using the Lumiere best because I think it's such beautiful shimmery paint.

I've never stamped on silk, but have used Fabrico ink pads stamping on chiffon and cotton, and also Lumiere paints, which are gorgeous (as previously said). The scarf in the attachment is one of many I've made using a strip of inexpensive chiffon fabric, 'fraying' the ends, stamping onto the chiffon, and then sewing wool/yarn in 5 or 6 strips down the length of the scarf so that the ends of the yarn (about 8"-10") forms the loose fringe at each end. You can do the same thing without the yarn/wool of course - just stamping onto chiffon, but you'd have to sew the ends to prevent the fabric fraying.

I've also stamped onto cotton fabric and then covered one of those giant sized 'cover your own' buttons with the fabric and glued a pin on the back. Makes for a lovely brooch. (The square one was stamped first and then the bits sewn on and the fabric glued to a square of cardboard then the pin put on the back.)

Hope these might give you some ideas.

Thanks for the tips. I have SU's craft ink pads, so I was going to use those.

I have used SU craft pads to stamp on silk scarves with much success. I used the pads on different varieties of silk. I just stamped them and then heat set with an iron (make sure that the steam setting is off and that you place the scarf between a piece of fabric you don't care much about, like an old cotton tea towel, to protect your ironing mat and the iron.

Here is a scarf I made usign the SU craft inks: Fresh Flower Scarf by stampwithdiane at Splitcoaststampers

You can also dye your silk scarves using SU's craft inks diluted with some water.

It's BEAUTIFUL. Which scarf did you use for that?

I wish I could remember. I bought my scarves from thaisilks.com and at the time I purchased a bunch of different kinds to try them out. I think that one was the habotai silk 8x72" or something like that. It definitely was one of the less expensive ones. I have also stamped on and dyed the sheerer silk scarves (they look more gauzy) and they came out fine. I really don't think you can go wrong regardless of which silk scarf you try.
