Hey there! I've been re-visiting another oldie-but-goodie-technique, Heat Stamping on Fun Foam!
How do you heat stamp? What is Fun Foam?
First, Fun Foam is a spongy sheet 1/8" - 1/4" thick found at craft stores. I bought a beige 12" x 18" sheet for 89 cents! I can cut a bunch of squares, rectangles, and strips!
To heat stamp on fun foam: Heat with your Heat Tool until the foam gets a little wet-looking and starts to curl. This doesn't take very long! As soon as the foam is heated, press an inked red-rubber stamp into the foam. Hold in place for a few seconds. Remove and voila! You have heat stamped the Fun Foam!
NOTE: Red-rubber stamps work best because they are more deeply-etched than photopolymer.
For my card I started with an Early Espresso card base, then added a Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Pinewood Plank Dynamic Folder inked with Crumb Cake. I added strips of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, than the Fun Foam square I had cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit, heated with the Heat Tool and stamped with a Count My Blessings image inked with Early Espresso. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso before adhering to the card with a Stampin' Dimensionals in each corner.
I stamped a Butterfly Basics greeting and finished with a single Gold Faceted Gem.
I stamped inside with a Count My Blessings sentiment, stamped-off acorns, and Early Espresso sponging. I covered the Very Vanilla envelope flap with the fabulous acorn pattern from the Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper!
