Do you ever fall in love with a set of Die-namics? And dream of a stamp set to coordinate? I do. Often. This months Free with $60 purchase set of Die-namics is Gerbera Daisy and I wanted to stamp these gorgeous flower images! By using my Die-namics and a piece of crafting fun foam, I was able to create my very own stamps! Check out my tutorial below.
Oh, and a quick mention of the sentiment, its from Beautiful Baby by Lisa Johnson. Love, love, love the font and the size! Perfect for a million occasions!
Die cut basic crafting foam with Die-namics Gerbera Daisy. You will want to cut a few extras of each size.
Because the foam is thicker, you may need to run your foam through twice. Check after your first pass.
Apply repositionable adhesive to one side of the foam and apply it to your acrylic block. If you don't have this type of adhesive, a piece of double stick tape will work well.
Apply ink to the foam, like you would a stamp. It will take a bit more ink, so practice on a separate piece of paper before stamping on your project. For my largest flower, I used Pink Lemonade ink.
Here is a look at some of the flowers stamped. For the second largest flower, I used Spearmint Ink. And for the smallest flower, I used Sno Cone ink.
After stamping all the flowers, I realized I needed something more to add to the pattern. I went back and die cut one of the circle flower center pieces from Die-namics Gerbera Daisy and stamped it in Grapesicle Ink. The gold flowers and dots were created with the exact same technique.
Tips for creating your own stamps with Die-namics:
- You will only be able to use one color of ink per die cut piece of fun foam. Once you use it, it will need to be tossed.
- Dye or pigment inks work with the fun foam.
- Watch the ink build up around your die-cut fun foam on the acrylic block. Be sure to wipe it away before you stamp.
