I had been keeping my tissue tape in a glass jar and lately stacked on a dowel attached on my desk. Both ways looked great but I had to off load all the top rolls to get at the one I needed. So here is what I came up with, an empty wax paper box.

DIY - Fun foam BG stamp

More fun with fun foam!

Here I'm using fun foam to create a background stamp.
I like that the impression is a bit distressed looking. It lasts for a long time too, this one has been around since february.

To make the FF Stamp I put the fun foam in the Lacy Brocade EF by Stampin Up! and ran it through my Big Shot as I would cardstock.

Now use FF stamp as you would any other unmounted stamp.
If using dye inks, clean up is as easy as holding it under running water.

I'll post the card that I'm making soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
Welcome Cornelia (Fun Stamping) here's a bouquet of markers for your enjoyment!

Create to share ATC

This ATC is my entry to the 150 years of Photography challenge on ATC from Canada.

I used watercolour crayons in a spiral pattern on Ranger canvas stock then sprayed it with Ranger silver pearls and let it move the colour a bit then dried it with tissue and finally ironed it to flatten and dry it.

When completely dry I adhered it to cardstock backing.

Stamped Say cheese bella from Stamping Bella (My prize from Die Cut Divas in Feb.)

To complete I added glitter gel pen to sides and misc. words.
