June Technique - Thinlit Stamping

Using inexpensive fun foam, you can create stamps from your thinlits that do not have a matching stamp!!  How cool is that?!!

Here is what you do, go to your craft section and purchase fun foam, you can get it in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets.  Cut a square of fun foam that will be big enough to cut your thinlit out with.  Run it through your Big Shot and attach it to an acrylic block with adhesive, ink it up and stamp!!  It couldn't be easier!

Please note that framelits will not work as well.  These foam stamps are quite versatile and you can use them over and over.

Let me show you the fun cards that we created using this great technique!

Card #1 - Thank You Butterfly
Isn't this great?!  The Butterfly Thinlit does not have a matching stamp but with fun foam, we do now!

Card #2 - Sending You Hugs
The background for this gorgeous card is made using the Love & Affection stamp set, just add ink and stamp!  We used a post it note mask so that we could leave the center blank.

Did you notice the center of the daisy?  Well that is a White Accent that we colored with a yellow Sharpie!  You will also will want to stamp and punch out two daisies, curl them with a bone folder and then glue one on top of the other to create a beautiful daisy!
