More stamps – and samples

3 Comments

Here is the range of stamps I made from Fun Foam and QuicKutz dies:

As you can see from the discolouration some of them have been used, a bit. I suspect it was sitting hunched over my desk working on this yesterday that wrecked my back – I’m slowly recovering.  Lucky I had taken the photos so I can still blog it.

I did a little sample sheet of som different things:

Weirdly, my Blazing Red Staz-on pad come out way more purple than red.  Anyone else have this problem as the Staz-on ages? But you can see the foam stamps with a whole variety of different things and how they work.

See the Neocolor II crayons?  They give a really interesting effect if you colour the foam then stamp. You get a variety of looks depending if you colour them when slightly dampo, if you run a different colour around the edge, if you draw on dots or stripes.

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos.  I would encourage you to experiment yourself to see what you can do with them, because I think you will be surprised.

Oh, and that weird on top right in the first photo?  I made the stamp and ran the whole thing thru in a Sizzix folder.  The foam holds the embossing to create a kinds nifty stamp!

You can blast it with the heat gun to remove the embossing, too, so you still have your plain stamp.  And look at how it stamps!

Cool!

I know I am really going to enjoy playing with these more.

  1. How fun is this! Who knew you could make stamps with foam??? Great technique.

  2. Hi MaryAnne
    I have just finished sorting a box of “stuff” that hasn’t seen daylight for a while & at the bottom was about 12 sheets of fun foam. What was I to do with them! Well, now I know. How Timely to receive notice of your todays blogging.
    Must go have a play – I especially like those you put through the embossing folder.

  3. Thanks for the great ideas. Hope your back recovers quickly. X
