27 thoughts on “Create Your Own Stamps + LOTS of Cards”

  1. Per usual, lots of great ideas! Years ago I bought some hard plastic sheets with designs on them that were to be used as rub on, in that you put a piece of paper/cardstock on & rubbed over it to get a design. I think your method of making stamps with a moldable foam block would work well for me. I have one of the older foam blocks from way back when…

  2. WOW! My head is spinning with ideas! What a versatile stamping foam! I am already looking through my dies, stencils and embossing folders to see what could work. The placemat impression turned out fabelous too.

  3. I love your enthusiasm for a good background! It pulls me in every time. The stamping foam looks like great fun.

  4. I saw these last week sometime and ordered right away! The Fes Ex truck came with the delivery just a few minutes before I had to leave for work. I was so bummed that I couldn’t stay home and “play”. I was at work thinking about all the things I can use to make impressions! Stamps, embossing folders, dies and of course all the things I’ve collected to use on my Gelli plate! And I just KNEW INSTANTLY from your intro that you were going to be using these stamp foams! The possibilities are endless and I JUST LOVE you and your videos! One of my all time faves and I love your creativity! YOU ROCK!

  5. Hi Jennifer!

    I love everything you create. I don’t know how you continually come up with such fun, new ideas, but keep them coming! I wanted to know where you order your envelopes from? I would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks. MaryLeigh

  6. Your video is exactly what I needed now! I found an unopened package of the Magic Stamp moldable foam from Clearsnap that was popular when I first started stamping nearly 20 years ago. However at that time we used it more to form stamps from textured surfaces.. But with the popularity of embossing folders/stencils and dies, it opens up whole new possibilities. Thank you!

  7. Wow! Thank you for an amazing video chock full of incredible ideas and designs. Your cards are always so beautifully done!

  8. Ahh I remember this. The foam was called PenScore and was by Clearsnap. Loved using it many years ago, Great to see a revival of this old product and the ways and products to use with it, in todays world, What’s old is new again.

  9. Absolutely stunning cards! you ever stop to amaze me with your brilliant new ideas. just when i thought i have already seen it all, there is your new video with creativity that blows my mind. Thank you for your never ending inspiration. now i have to go, pick up my jaw from the floor and process what i just saw 😍

  10. I’m totally speechless and mesmerized, Jennifer!! I bought some stamping foam from Etsy awhile back and haven’t used it yet…oh my goodness! Now I NEED to pull it out and play…this is wonderful and will be so much fun to experiment with so many different products and household items laying around!! I’m in LOVE!! Thank you for continually sharing your creativity and inspiration!! YOU are BLESSING!!

  11. Terrific post! I have a question though. When you rub several ink colors over the stamp do you have issues with inks mixing on your pads? Thanks so much.

  12. Thank you for this amazing resource of inspiration. I do have a stamping block in my stash from many years ago – I actually totally forgot what it was for or how to use it. I can’t wait to put it to use with ALL of your ideas. So many possibilities from such a simple block. A shout out to Simon Hurley for bringing it back to the industry. You continue to provide such an array of techniques to initiate my card making.

  13. I saw Simon Hurley demonstrating this stamping material but you were way more detailed. I loved what you did with the stamping foam using embossing folders, dies, etc. I would have been afraid to try a die thinking it would cut into the foam. I think I need to buy one of those stamping foams. So many possibilities to play with. Thank you so much for all you do!

  14. Ohh I have such foam, have to search but I have one or two from years ago!
    I had seen Simon Hurley on IG and he used a knitted sweater to make a stamp from, so awesome.
    Your video is outstanding Jennifer, so much different products, awesome examples and tips.
    Thank you so much for the time and effort you put in this great video tutorial.
    Stay safe and have a wonderful week.

  15. I have several of these blue foam blocks from my early days of stamping that I really hadn’t utilized. Now I’ve got so many ideas thanks to you.

  16. You just never cease to amaze! I remember using this stuff years ago. At that time there was some packing material being used that worked in a similar way. Not sure it’s still used.
    I have a favor to ask. I live for your videos but sometimes find them hard to watch when you twist and turn the cards so much. I know you want us to see the sparkle but it makes it hard to see the finished card, especially in the close ups. Just wondered if you could hold them still a little more. Thanks! I’d hate to miss anything.

  17. When the previous stamping foam came out years ago, I bought 2 different brands. The price was $1.00 to $4.00 if I remember correctly. I couldn’t get either one to stamp in much detail so ended up getting rid of them. Simon’s looks so much better!!! Thanks for doing a video! Wow, loved all of your examples!

  18. love these ideas – so inspired to create my own stamps – have to wait until the stamping tool is available again – sad face

  19. I watched a video on using the foam block to make a stamp and did not get to finish watching it. I can no longer find it and am wondering if you have a video showing the instructions. I am also interested in purchasing the foam and wondering how to purchase it.
    Thanks for any information you can give me.

  20. Sorry I found your video but I am having problems saving it to my Pinterest lists. It keeps telling me it is not a valid URL format.

    Thanks.

    Linda D.
