Something Different Saturday...


 as you may have gathered by now ideas float around my head for weeks before I actually do anything with them a large number of them never make it past the idea stage.  This is what happened with this idea, making die's into stamps!

These are the cards that I made with paper created by this stamping techniques.  On the second card I have used the stamp I made for the background as the centre piece.

 I was cutting a Spellbinders die with funky foam just to see what it looked like when I realised that the end result was like some of the children's stamps I had seen.  This led to trying it out, here is the first attempt using Spellbinder Gold Elements one die I started to create a background which I used for the first card.

I'm sure you can all come up with clever ways to use your dies as stamps, I hope it works for you

Cut the die using funky foam and a magnetic sheet
Do Not emboss as this flattens the foam
Adhere to an acrylic block (I used 2 layers of foam and a rock a block from Crafters Companion)
stamp to your hearts content,  Enjoy...
