Hello everyone! 😄

This week I’m showing you how to make your own stamps with foam. I think they’re really cool and you can turn any image you like into a stamp this way. The crafting foam works really well because it adsorbs the ink well, which makes you able to stamp it.

What you’ll need:

  • Template images
  • Crafting foam
  • Scissors
  • A stanley knife
  • Some strong cardboard
  • Glue

Step 1: Printing the images

Print out a few images that you want to turn into stamps. Search Google for anything you want with ‘silhouette’ after it and you’ll find all kind of templates. I chose a bunny, a hummingbird, a lily, a rose and my name.

Step 2: Cutting the paper

Cut out all your images. With the solid shapes it’s easy, but with the rose I had to cut out all the little parts.

With the lily I decided to keep the three smallest parts attached, so it would be easier to cut.

Step 3: tracing the paper onto the foam

Trace the paper onto the foam. The colour of the foam you use doesn’t matter, you won’t see any difference while stamping.

Step 4: Cutting out the foam

This is the hard step. I was able to cut the bunny and the hummingbird out with scissors, but the rose, lily and my name had really small pieces  so I used a stanley knife for them. Luckily you can cut through foam really easily with a good stanley knife

Step 5: Cutting the cardboard

I cut a few cardboard shapes out of strong cardboard. For the bunny, hummingbird and rose I decided to make circles because I think that looked really cool, but the shape of the cardboard really doesn’t matter as long as the foam fits on it.

Step 6: Sticking the foam to the cardboard.

Stick the foam to the cardboard with glue. An important thing to remember is when you’re using letters to spell something, you should stick them to the cardboard in reverse!

Step 7: Go stamping!

I had a lot of fun with this step😊

You can just use the stamps like normal stamps, and you can use all kinds of ink. You could even use paint if you want.

Here are a few examples of what I did:

I think it’s really cool that you can make your own designs. You can really make cool artworks by stamping. And if you make your name you can stamp it under all kinds of letters.

I hope you found this tutorial useful. If you did, please like, comment or share. It really means a lot to me😊

Thanks for reading & see ya next week!
