Cut It Out Again!


I believe I promised some more foam stamps for the GPP Street Team crusade, so here they are. I tried them out last night. These are what Michelle Ward calls "go-with" stamps - I made the dress top, dress bottom, and wing foam stamps to go with each other. The dress stamps are mounted on another layer of foam, but the wing is loose, so I can use either side, for right and left wings. On the journal page, I glued a head and drew a hairdo, hands and feet.


And I found out how to dry foam stamps quickly after washing them off: I put my cleaned stamps down and forgot where they were until I felt an unexplained wetness! I sat on my foam stamps and they dried - but my pants were wet!
P.S. - If you haven't taken this craft poll yet, go here and check it out, no registration required!

Oh, come ON! These stamps are so fab! What a great idea! I just made a paper doll ATC, and wouldn't fashion stamps have been wonderful! I am doing this.
Thanks for sharing more with us.

I love this idea!

I haven't got an elastic band for me box yet, the poor pens are still just rolling around in the bottom of my handbag getting buried by the 5 million receipts that I am sure I must keep. For some reason. I think. Hmmm...

Thanks for coming by my blog!

Oh, Ms. Artkat,

Ingenious. You could do a whole series of these and interchange them kind of like those plastic Colorforms we used to play with (am I dating myself?). -Kim
