Cut It Out 3!

GPP Street Team, crusade no. 18 (again!) Here is yet another try at the handmade foam stamps I've come to love! This time, my foam stamps have three layers: the design is cut into the top layer, the second layer is for stability, and the third layer is the backing with easy-pull-up tabs on the sides. I decorated a page using acrylics with these two stamps. (Someday, I'm going to try rubber stamp carving, when the novelty of foam stamps wears off!) Thanks for looking! :)

Just dropped over to say thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about my carved stamps...then I see yours! What a fun idea to carve foam...must be a ton easier to do than working on rubber as it is a challenge to me! I might give it a go with foam..thanks for the idea!

I love hearts and stars. These are fabulous and those pull up tabs are very clever.

These foamies are wonderful - and your tabby thing is clever! Love how you dotted the outline on the page. Thanks for reminding the crusaders and visitors that you can make your own tools with more than just carved erasers.

Nice designs and I like the mottled look you got when you stamped them.

What a cool material, I've never seen that! The previous cut it out posts filled with stamps are great too, your design page I like too! :-)

take care

Great additons to your collection. I was wondering what those tabby things were... a smart way to make it easier to lift!

You are really good at this carving, aren't you?! I'm so inspired, I shall probably spend this evening cutting up foam! I love all the stamps you've created!

Vivian said...

Great stamps! I really like the heart. The tabs are a good idea.

PLO said...

Wow, how did you make those so neat and crisp? Mine are so beat up after I am done carving!

These are great! And the way you used them is just perfect! They look like something from a published book. I like how the foam makes the ink lighter in areas, it's a great effect. I sometimes love or hate this effect when I stamp with foam stamps depending on what I'm going for. Yours are marvelous... I might try foam if I have some!
