Rubberstamping 101: Using Fun Foam

This comes in thin sheets or in various shapes and is found in most craft stores, and has several uses:

Texture Stamps

1. Cut piece of fun foam to size and heat with heat gun.
2. It will shrink a little and darken a little in color
3. Press into an item such as a pile of buttons, fabric, rubberstamp and the texture or image will transfer to the fun foam.
4. You can at this time glue the foam to a block of wood and make a stamp.
5. Ink the fun foam and use as a stamp

Card Embellishments

1. Have an inked stamp ready.
2. Heat fun foam until it shrinks a little and darkens in color.
3. Immediately press the stamp into the foam and hold about 10 seconds.
4. Cut out your embellishment and attach to face of card.

Note: you can re-heat fun foam and the current image will disappear and you can create a new one with the same foam.

That's about it...good luck!
