So to create stamps from coordinating dies, you will need some craft fun foam. I used this to cut THESE dies from and it die cuts beautifully. Next, I laid the die cut shape on an A2 panel of deluxe smooth white cardstock. I added some temporary tape to the back and picked it up with the door of the MISTI. I inked up the first fun foam shape with Tangerine ink and stamped it. Depending on the thickness of your fun foam, you may need to place a piece of cardstock or two under your panel to achieve the right pressure for stamping. The fun foam stamps are also very easy to clean. I just use a baby wipe to remove any ink. I like to save these fun foam pieces and keep them with the stamp set since they are reusable.

Next, I cut those same dies from masking paper. I want to create a mask to place on top of the stamping so it protects the image when I stamp on top. I stamped THIS Bubble Celebrating background stamp using Mist ink. I removed the masks and placed the piece in the Misti. I lined up THESE coordinating stamps in place. To make sure they are in the right spot, I like to place a piece of clear packaging on top and stamp before stamping the stamped piece. This way I can correct any alignment issues.

For the sentiment, I chose the “you’re fintastic” sentiment from the stamp set and white heat embosssed it on pitch black cardstock. I adhered it to the stamped piece along with THESE clear enamel dots to resemble bubbles. I finished off the design by rounding all four corners of the card.

I decided to use this same technique to decorate the envelope flap as well. I’m a big fan of creating a matching envelope to tie everything together and give the recipient a sneak peek of what’s coming on the card inside. I reused the same foam image that I used on the card to stamp the yellow fish on the flap of THIS envelope and then went back in to stamp the image…

I hope this has inspired you to create stamps from coordinating dies. Keep in mind though, this technique works with any dies you have on hand.
