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).
