Simon Hurley Create Stamping Foam by Ranger (The best thing I've seen in a long time)
Stamping Foam! Craft With Me!
You can heat this puppy up and press anything into it to make a stamp.
This is the first time I have used this item and it was super simple to use. I got the hang of it really fast and I will be using it a ton. I was really impressed that I got such good impressions the very first time I used it. You could also use this with an acrylic block I just didn't see a need.
- Simon Hurley Create. By Ranger Stamping Foam 3" x 4.25" block
- Water bottle-I used one from the Dollar Tree
- Heat gun-I used the Embossing Heat Tool by Marvy
- Cardstock-I actually used the back of a paper pad to practice
- Heat your stamping foam up for around 15 seconds with your heat gun
- Stamp your foam onto your favorite texture
- Make sure to push your foam into the item pretty good
- My ink came off pretty good with a few good sprays of water and a cloth
If you like the image, leave it and use it again and again! Simply reheat when you are ready for a new impression.
Now for the fun pics. Below is a picture of everything I stamped.
For this one I used Close To My Heart Exclusive Ink Lagoon and Sapphire. It would be really cool in a journal or mixed media item.
Then I looked around my craft room and noticed a basket sitting there and it was screaming to be stamped.
I used Close To My Heart Exclusive Ink colors Raspberry and Pixie.
Next, I tackled my laptop keyboard!
Then I used an embossing folder by Darice that looks like mermaid scales. I simply pressed the foam onto an embossing folder to get this impression. I think this is my favorite so far.
Then I dug into my junk drawer to find some metal embellishments. Put them down on my desk and after heating the foam, I stamped the foam on the top of the embellishments. I used CTMH Exclusive Ink in Chocolate.
Then I grabbed a back ground wooden stamp. The cool thing about background stamps is you get the image reversed. I used CTMH ink in lemonade and Saffron.
Last but not least is my CTMH Clear Gnome Stamp, I used CTMH Green Apple. I love how the color of the card shows through on the reverse images.
Thanks for reading, this is definitely going to be one of my favorite tools moving forward.
