DIY foam stamp

Created the heart patterned using foam and Sizzix Scallop Heart die. PageMaps NSD challenge us to create stamp from foam and make a project based on the sketch. Here is how I create the heart shaped stamped image:
  1. die cut a heart shape from a foam using Sizzix Scallop Heart die
  2. Embossed the die cut heart foam with Sizzix BG Dotted Flower Ring embossing folder
  3. Inked the foam with TH Spun Sugar distress inkpad.
  4. Stamped on a white card stock.
  5. Use the same heart die and die cut the stamped image.

Here is the photo of materials used for creating the heart image:

Sizzix Scallop Heart die, Sizzix BG Dotted Flower Ring embossing folder, foam (the one in yellow colour) and a $0.20 glass coaster used as stamping

Others (not in photo) : TH Spun Sugar distress inkpad, Cuttlebug Fantasy Floral embossing folder, printed patterned paper
