Hello everyone! It’s time for another Make it Monthly technique tutorial. This month we have Lisa Hoel sharing a Sizzix Foam Stamp Resist technique. You can use this technique in all your creative endeavors from card making to journaling and beyond! Lisa is no stranger to colorful creative projects and out of the box uses for all things Sizzix and more! Just wait till you see how Lisa uses her Sizzix dies to create foam stamps resulting in a super cool resist technique.
Sizzix Foam Stamp Resist Technique
Hello! We all like to get the most use possible out of our supplies and today I have an oldie but goodie technique for you to stretch your dies. I’m going to show you how to use them to make foam stamps and then use those stamps in a resist technique.
1. Apply a double sided adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of fun foam then die cut your shapes out of it. You don’t have to use the adhesive, but it makes the next step super easy.
2. Peel off the paper backing of the adhesive sheet and stick each foam piece onto a square cut from plastic packaging. That’s it for the stamps! Easy peasy right?
3. You can use the stamps with ink or paint. Here I used acrylic paint because the paint then acts as a resist when you mist or ink the shapes with water soluble media. (More on that in a minute.) Because these are small stamps, I used a paintbrush to apply a thin layer of paint to the stamps and then stamped the centers of my die cut flowers.
4. I used a few different mists on the flowers and once they were mostly dry, I used a baby wipe to clean the excess off of the stamped parts. It wiped right off!
That’s right, here’s a different way to get more uses out of your embossing folders! You can use them to stamp too.
1. Use a brayer to apply a thin layer of silver paint to one side of the embossing folder. I placed the basket shape onto the painted side and carefully closed the folder, then gently pressed it to transfer the paint.
2. Once the paint was dry, I misted it and wiped the excess off the paint resist.
The rest is standard card assembly! 😉 Build the base and then arrange all the goodies in an aesthetic manner.
