Video: Die Cut Foam Stamping + Hop + Giveaway

Hello! I have been enjoying some time with my family over the past few weeks and hope you have been able to do the same. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things.

Today I have a video showing a fun way to use die cuts to create a foam stamp background. I also am part of a fun blog hop with giveaways!

I am always looking for ways to stretch my supplies. Today I show how to use tiny die cuts to create my own foam background stamp. This is very addictive! I created the cards you see here… and created backgrounds for 24 more. (I am in need of thank you cards!)

You can do this technique with any die cut shape. I picked small die cuts and covered an entire background, so it took me a bit of time. (I felt it was worth it since I was making many cards at once.) However, you can simplify the card if desired. Use what you have!

I used the Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers Dies and white craft foam to create my own background stamp that I could use over and over. After creating colorful backgrounds with various Simon Says Stamp Inks, I wanted to keep the sentiments simple and bold. Therefore, I used the Simon Says Stamp I Love You and On Edge Thank You Dies with black cardstock, along with a simple white heat embossed Simon Says Clear Stamps Big U Words greeting.

I can’t wait to do this same technique with other dies. Again, it is addictive!
