Foam stamping with POP Paint.

Posted on 30 Apr 2017

Stamping is one of my favourite techniques to use for cards, art journaling and on my scrapbooking layouts.
Combining all of my tools to create my own stamps is the perfect compromise when I don’t have exactly what I want.
So this week I used some of my flower die-cuts to create my own foam stamps to use with POP Paint.
Its quick and easy, plus I can use all of my stash to create something beautiful.

step 1 – I selected Signal red for my stamping – to add loads of personality and spunk to my card.

step 2 – Use a flower die-cut and cut the flowers out of foam.

step 3 – Adhere 2 foam flowers on top of each other, and then adhere the layered flowers to a piece of packaging board.
TIP: I used the board from my photo paper packet – its firm and sturdy and works really well.

step 4 – Use a paint brush and paint a layer of POP paint onto the foam stamp.

step 5 – Stamp the flowers onto a prepared piece of cardstock or patterned paper.

Adhere the stamped panel onto a patterned background on the front of your card. Add a sentiment with some embellishments
to finish off your card.

Such an easy way to add beautiful stamped images onto your project using POP Paint.
Foam stamps are really great to use with your paint and can easily be washed without being damaged or compromising
the quality and detail. Using paint on cling mount or acrylic stamps is not recommended as the paint  is too thick for the details
to show up nicely. Paint is also really tricky when it comes to cleaning it off of acrylic stamps.

Products used:
POP Paint 290ml-Signal pp0301
Other: die-cut, foam, patterned paper, embellishments

Happy stamping!
