Here is a clever idea to make solid background stamps using your Spellbinder Dies.

"I needed a solid background stamp for a one layer card one day, and decided to make my own stamps using craft foam and my Spellbinders dies. This was almost too much fun!"

Products Used:

To make card:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

5-510E Parakeet 
9-960D Kraft 


S4-230 Labels Six 

JustRite Stamps: 

CL-02080 Fancy Tags 
CL-02100 Vintage Oval Labels 

Other Materials Used:

My Mind’s Eye brads 
Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Broken China) 
Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup 6x6 pad

To make stamp:


S4-230 Labels Six 

Other Materials Used:

 Craft foam (what I’ve used is 3mm thick) 
EziMount (used to mount stamps)   (Heartfelt Thanks) 

Step One: 
Gather your supplies

Step Two: 
Cut each shape out of foam, and then EziMount. You might need to run each through the Grand Calibur a couple of times to make sure it has cut through. Once cut, peel the protective film off the EziMount and adhere it to the foam shape. VoilĂ ! Your stamps are ready to roll.

Step Three: 
Ink these stamps the usual way with an ink pad, or smear dye inks (eg Distress Inks) over the foam and spritz with water. The colours will blend together to great effect.
