Homemade Foam Stickers

Hope you are all having a great weekend. The Make It Monday challenge this week is all about making your own stickers using fun foam. In her video Laurie uses double sided adhesive foam to create custom stickers from die cut letters - you can see the video here. Rather than a single letter I chose to use this technique with a die cut word.



My fun foam had only one adhesive side. I found working with this product a bit tricky as it can stretch out of shape once the paper backing is removed. I used a few tips from Laura Bassen's video on Camouflaging Die - Cuts - MIM#193 and Laurie's previous MIM tutorial using Stretch and Seal to help place die cut pieces. - MIM#177. My card design was inspired by this week's sketch at CAS(E) the Sketch! - CTS#106 . I used the colour palette from this month's Inspiration Archive Color Play at PTI.


Supplies:
Stamps - Leave It Be, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday (PTI)
Dies - Birthday Trio, Building Blocks (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White CS, True Black CS (PTI)
Ink - Sweet Leaf, Pear, Lagoon, Juniper, Dutch Blue (CTMH), Versa Mark, White EP
Other - Fun Foam
