Permission has been given and I am SO thrilled to be sharing with you a brand new Impressabilities technique!!! I came up with this idea while playing around with my tools several months ago. I love using my Colorbox Stylus tool to ink the edges of my paper. But as I was staring at it, I thought, what can I do with the foam end? Then I remembered that Colorbox used to sell molding plates for the foam tips. Not having those, I looked at the Flower Impressabilities laying on my desk and thought, a ha!
Start by heating the black foam tip of your stylus tool. I use my crafting light. It does not take much heat to make it pliable.
Push the heated foam tip onto the Impressabilities. I chose the flower that would fit my tip before I did this.
Here is what the tip looks like. The image will not go away until you re-heat the tip.
Ink the foam tip, just like any stamp.
Here is the image stamped onto a Petite Oval die cut.
Here is a look at the image used on a card.
And here is the completed project. Isn’t that fun? Let me know what you think and I would LOVE to see what you create with this!! thanks for stopping by!
