I purchased this stamp-making foam quite a while ago on the recommendation of a friend. I pulled it out the other day to see what I could do with it.
I started out using the real thin sheet and cut some flower shapes with a Spellbinders’ die.
That was easy and fun. I could see cutting some of my other dies to increase my stamp collection.
Behind the stamp is my art journal page with both of those stamp images.
But this is really what I wanted this foam for – to press things into it. I bought this necklace years ago and really liked the pendant but never wear it. I thought it would make a great stamp.
First I needed to heat the foam up until it had a shiny look.
Now it was time to press the pendant into the foam for 15-30 seconds. And this is what I got.
Now it’s time to test drive it so I added some color with a stamp pad.
Here are a couple ATC backgrounds made with this stamp.
Here are some other stamps I made.
I did try embedding things into some regular foam I had around to see if it worked, but it’s not soft enough to make good impressions like the last three stamps. These stamps, of course, can also be used on fabric with paint. I’ll post in the next couple days another craft technique using the pendant stamp. Fun!!
