Stamping With Dies + Giveaways

Hi! Today I am sharing a fun way to use coordinating dies to create foam stamps. I also have info on a FREE stamp set, blog hop, and giveaways!

I am always looking for ways to use my supplies creatively… ways to get more value from my investments. Today’s technique is great for that. You can take any die and create a stamp from it!

My first example features the new Waffle Flower Make a Fish Die (WF | SSS). This die is so much fun and unique! After I cut, colored, and assembled her (see my video for tips to make this process faster), I added details with Tonic Crystal Glaze, a White Gelly Roll Pen, and an Aqua Shimmer Pen.

I wanted to make it look like there were more fish in the background, so I created a matching solid stamp by die cutting White Craft Foam with the fish from Waffle Flower Make a Fish Die (WF | SSS). I then temporarily adhered the foam fish to a Fiskars Stamp Block and stamped it repeatedly with Hero Arts White Dye Ink. Such great results! I also added bubbles with Tonic Crystal Glaze and a sentiment from the Waffle Flower Make a Fish Stamp Set (WF | SSS).

My second example is a very different style, but uses the same technique. I die cut White Craft Foam hearts using the Waffle Flower Stitched Love Die Set (WF | SSS). I then stamped with the foam hearts and Hero Arts White Dye Ink to create the patterned background. Finally, I used the matching faux stitching heart stamps from the Waffle Flower Stitched Love Stamp Set (WF | SSS) to stamp on top with Waffle Flower New Fish In Pond Ink ( WF | SSS).

I can’t get over how cute this little girl is – she looks like my Lila! She is from the Waffle Flower Little Bakers Stamp Set (WF | SSS) and I colored her quickly with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the Waffle Flower Flora Cat Stamp Set (WF | SSS).

  1. OMG! I can’t believe mine is the very first comment! It’s only 5:14 a.m. in Texas and the only reason I’m awake is because I was up all night watching your card-making videos. Thank you Jennifer for this & all the great tutorials you have posted over the years; they are so helpful & inspiring.

  2. Jennifer, you are such an inspiration, thank you for being so awesome and a genuine person. Love the cards you made, so pretty. Love the new releases. Hope you have a blessed day

  3. What a wonderful way to extend the sets you have, & such fantastic results. Love both of the cards you made & how they were made, if you swop the little ladies brown hair to blonde it looks so like my daughter when she baked with me when she was younger x

  4. Wow! I just love this new fish die. Thanks for showing how to use copics to color the parts in colors that you want instead of dieing all the pieces in different colors. LOVE how you used the fun foam for stamps! This was a very inspirational video. Thanks.

  5. I always learn so much from you! Thanks for sharing your creativity with all of us! Waffle Flower always has such unique products — loving the fish stamps and dies!

  6. When I saw the fish die on WF post, I immediately thought I should maybe buy it. Now that I’ve seen your card, it’s decided, I will order it ! Your card is incredibly beautiful ! The colors are perfect and with your idea of the stamped background with the same fish, it’s really fantastic. Thank you for sharing your imagination !

  7. That fish stamp and die set are pretty unique…what a clever idea. Love your cards and that your videos help us make the most out of our crafty goodies. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Love the bold, vibrant & beautiful colors you chose for your
    gorgeous cards. They are both lovely in every way.

  9. Oh my that fish stamp, it’s fintastic! Love how you used the fish as a stamp for the background. It looked like the sun on the bottom of a pool or pond at first, then I realized it was the same fish. Amazing!

  10. This video is so cool. I love the technique and all the little added touches with the gel pen and crystal drops. Beautiful.

  11. The fish die is simply amazing and your colors make it beautiful. You make things look really simple to do and that is the talent of a really good teacher. You always encourage us to try new ideas and make us feel we really can do it. Thank you for sharing this talent with us. You amaze me!!

  12. I saw these fishes on one of the other blog hoppers and when I saw your name on the list I just had to skip on over her to see what you had done with them. I just love these little fishies……….

  17. I just realized I added this to my favorites and never commented on how much I love this technique. I’m wondering if running card stock through the Xyron would work the same way you did it with the adhesive sheet. Ah, another thing to try. Just gorgeous cards, Jennifer. Thank you so much.
