Stamping Inspiration

Today we want to focus on some ideas and Techniques on how to use some of the new Stamps that have arrived lately.

First up are the incredible Foam Stamps by Donna Downey, released by Prima Marketing at the last CHA. The Stamps are made of thick foam fused onto thick 3mm acrylic sheets. You can use them with Paints and Inks on paper, fabric or any other surface. The size of these stamps is amazing...they are approximately 10.25"x7.25"! The Layout featured here has been created using the 'Blossom' Foam Stamp.


First stamp the image on the back of a piece of cardstock. Cut out. Repeat this process by stamping the the image on several pieces of paper scraps and cut out the sections you would like to highlight.
(In the sample I have stamped on yellow cardstock first and then just stamped some of the blossoms on scraps of Lily Bee paper).
Next I have stamped the yellow cardstock with a 'Distressing Stamp' from Glitz Designs.
The scraps have then been stitched (sewing machine) around the edges and layered on top of the cardstock with mounting foam to give them some dimension.

Now get Creating!
