Step 1: Watch the DIY Video Here!
Step 2: You'll Need
Sticky back craft foam
Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints
Hot glue gun
Items with texture (I used a beaded appliqué)
Step 3: Create a Textured Design
Cut and stick 3 layers of sticky back foam to a wood block
Draw a design on cardboard
Trace over the design with hot glue
Heat your sticky foam wood block until the edges begin to curl
Firmly press the heated foam block onto the raised hot glue design to make your stamp
Step 4: Add Ink or Paint
Spread a thick layer of paint on a flat surface
"Ink" your stamp with the paint and press onto a card
You can also use an ink pad with the stamps
Cut out clip art images and glue them to your stamped cards
Step 5: Embellish
Paint around the edges with metallic paint and by rubbing the edges over the ink pad
Fill in the clip art images with more color
Add more stamping
Decoupage small pieces of paper, book pages and quotes
Be creative and experiment!
