Quick Coloring Using Craft Foam

Here’s what I made during this week’s Facebook Live session.  You can catch the replay on Facebook or YouTube.  

They are made using a technique I picked up via another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who watched this video by Jennifer McGuire.  I’ve used cheap craft foam to make a “fill” stamp for my image(s).  Using a stamp positioning tool like the Stamparatus®  allows me to position each element once, then ink and stamp as many times as I want.

Here’s an example using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set:


This image is filled using 7 hand-cut pieces of craft foam and three colors of ink: Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil delight.  Once the image was stamped and coloured, I used the matching die to cut it out, then popped it on my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 I’d like to draw your attention to the sentiment on this card…it’s one of the brand-new sentiments from Stampin’ Up!’s #smilesunshine Covid-19 Giveback PDF sentiment download bundle.  For US $12.00 you can get these fun and timely sentiments (some with images) to use in today’s new world.  All the money from these goes to support 2 global charities working on Covid-19 issues.  In less than 1 day over US $41K had been raised!  Click on the pics below to place your order.

For this card I did an electronic cut-and-paste of the sentiment I wanted and had it print directly on my card panel.  Then I stamped the flower and coloured it with my craft foam fill stamps.





Here’s the supplies used for these cards:
