Creative Stamping with 3D Foam Shapes

Welcome back, friends! Today I am sharing a fun little tutorial on how to use your 3D Foam Shapes in a creative new way. Let’s get stamping!

I love ALL of my foam shapes. There are just so many things you can do with them. Shakers, glitter, foil, dimension with acetate. Well here is one more thing to add to that list, stamping! Here are all of the details:

Creative Stamping with 3D Foam Shapes by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Start by finding some pretty thick chipboard. I cut two 3×3 squares and adhered them together using my E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Next you will take your 3D Foam Shapes, in this case I used 3D Foam Stars. You’ll want to use 2 layers of the foam to give a good amount of thickness for stamping. I created a simple cluster of stars for my stamped background.

For my layout, I chose to use Distress Oxide Inks for stamping. Using my cluster of stars stamp, I stamped the image over and over in different colours  diagonally across the white cardstock (11×11).

Next I used some shimmer misters to add splatters of coordinating colour. Let dry.

Adhere the 11×11 white cardstock background to a full sheet of black cardstock. The photo is matted in white and black cardstock and adhered to the middle of the layout using 3D Foam Squares. I also added some more 3D Foam Stars around the matted photo keeping the protective covering on them. These just add a little dimension in a subtle way.

A simple title finishes this sweet layout.
