DIY Ice Cream Cone Foam Stamps

May 12, 2015

Hi there! It’s Marsha again!

Last week I went to Ibiza for a short vacation. The weather was sunny and warm… We went to the beach… We swam in the pool… You get the idea!

Unfortunately, back in the Netherlands it was rainy and cold again. It feels like summer is still far, far away and I thought I’d better create a little sunshine in my craft room instead!

I decided to create my own DIY foam stamps with the new Ice Cream Cone die.

I’ve recorded a step-by-step video to show you exactly how I did it:

And here are all of the written steps for the cards:

1. Adhere a sheet of Transparent Double-Sided Tape to a sheet of craft foam. Cut in half. Remove the protective sheet from one of the halves and stick it to the other half. You should now have a double layer of craft foam ‘sandwich’ with the tape’s release sheet visible on one side.

2. Die-cut shapes out of  the craft foam ‘sandwich’ with the Ice Cream Cone die. Make sure you are cutting from the non-adhesive side.

3. Assemble a stamp by adhering the die-cut shapes onto a piece of plastic. I used an empty jewel case for this.

4. To stamp the ice cream cone, you will need to mask-off parts. Create masks by die-cutting the ice cream cone shapes out of post-it tape.

5. Start at the top of the ice cream cone: stamp a shape on a piece of white cardstock. Mask it off with the corresponding post-it tape shape and then stamp the next element down. Repeat until the entire ice cream cone is stamped.

6. Cut the stamped piece of cardstock a little smaller than the size of a regular folded note card. Add a machine stitched outline. Adhere the stamped cardstock to a folded note card using foam tape.

A few tips:

– Make sure all the foam elements on your DIY foam stamp are clean before you stamp the next layer.

– You can use any ink you like and you can even use paint with these foam stamps. I chose Distress Ink because it gives a nice subtle, soft effect and it’s easy to wipe off the stamps.

– You can even use the post-it tape masks to mask-off the entire ice cream cone shape and ink the background like I did for this art journal page:

I hope you’ll enjoy die-cutting your own foam stamps! I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with, so please don’t hesitate to share!

Have a wonderful, sunny day!

Ice Cream Cone

April 24, 2015

Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today. Summer is in full swing in South Florida and there’s no better treat than ice cream on a hot day! Let me show you how I made this fun card.

ECD Ice Cream

1.  Cut brown cardstock at 5.5″ x 8.5″ and score at 4.25″ for an A2 sized base card.

2.  Cut pink cardstock at 4″ x 5.25″ and adhere to base. Cut pattern paper at 3.75″ x 5″, ink with brown ink and adhere on top of pink cardstock.

3.  Die cut the following pieces shown below by first adhering a sheet of Transparent Double-Sided Tape to white & tan cardstock:

  • From the Ice Cream Cone die, cut 3 scoops, 2 dripping scoops, 2 cherries and 4 drips from white cardstock.
  • From the Ice Cream Cone die, cut 2 cones from tan cardstock.
  • From the Alphabet 1 die, cut the letters “SCOOPS” from white cardstock. Cover with desired colors of Silk Microfine Glitter.
  • From the Tags & More 1 – Lace die, cut a 4.75″ tag from white cardstock. Place lace decorative die on both top and bottom and die cut. Ink with pink ink then adhere on top of pattern paper.

4.  Assemble ice cream using photos for placement. Use foam adhesive to adhere cherry on top. Use extra pieces of ice cream to decorate an envelope.

5.  Cut Happy Birthday peel-off apart, place “Happy” on the top left of card and “Birthday” on the top right part of card at an angle. Place Glitter Dots in desired areas.

6.  For the inside of the card: cut pattern paper at 4″ x 5.25″, ink with brown ink then adhere to inside card base.

7.  Cut pink cardstock at 1″ x 4.25″ and adhere to bottom of pattern paper. Apply the outer edges of Glitter Border Lines on pink cardstock.

8.  Print computer-generated sentiment onto white cardstock and die cut using a Lorna Label decorator die and ink with pink ink. Adhere “SCOOPS” between the sentiment. Adhere Lorna Label to top portion of card.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and feel inspired to try it out yourself.

Happy Crafting,

Raquel
