Foam Stamping Tutorial


Check out my cute little doodled flowers with texture stamped centers. So cute, right?

foam stamping tutorialThe way I did the stamping is first to take these cute little foam stamps I picked up from Michaels the other day. I had no idea what I'd do with them but I thought they were so cute ... little foam marshmallow shapes.

foam stamping tutorialSo the first thing I did was to heat up one side of the foam shape with a heating tool until it got nice and soft and pliable. And then I pushed the heated side of the foam shape into a piece of crochet that I had made a while back.

So cool, right?

Happy foam stamping. :)

Rubber Carving Tutorial :: Jeung


I've talked about the concept of jeung with you here and here. So I wanted to see if I could carve the very special word to make it into a rubber stamp.

Jenny DohSo the first thing I did was to write the word with my brush and ink.

The character starts with a small horizontal stroke, then a downward stroke, diagonally.

I picked my favorite one and placed a translucent piece of paper over it and traced the storkes with a pencil.

DIY Crochet Stamp Printmaking Tutorial


Check out my new stamp. Not made of rubber. It's made of crochet.

I used hemp yarn to chain 12 and joined with a slip stitch and weaved in all the ends.

I used spray adhesive to mount it onto a piece of cardboard into the shape of a heart.

Using a sponge brush, I loaded the stamp with acrylic paint then stamped the image onto paper. To finish, I added washi tape, sheet music, and doodling.

Carved Eraser Stamp Tutorial :: Love One Another


carved eraser stamp tutorial
For this carved eraser, I drew a little design onto a pink eraser using an ordinary pencil.

And used my carving tool to carve out the outline and a bit on the inside of the leaves.

Then I inked it and stamped it onto cold press watercolor paper.

Took a black fine-tip marker to add details and part of my all-time favorite verses:

Beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love, does not know God for God is love. Beloved, let us love one another.

Carved Rubber Stamp Tutorial :: 1 Stamp = Endless Designs


Check out my very first carved rubber stamp. It's a flower petal. And with this lovely shade of coral, it makes the perfect flower grow.

And with this perfect shade of blue, it makes the perfect raindrops.

And when stamped twice, closely together, it makes the perfect little heart.

And when doodled with stems, they become the coolest plant life.

How did I do it? I took a regular pink eraser, sketched the shape directly onto the rubber with pencil and carved it with this tool.

Wee Knitting Love Stamped Moleskine & Tag Tutorial


I love rubber stamps. I love their simplicity and the many different directions you can take just one image. And lately, I've been having lots of fun with the Wee Knitting Love stamps.

IMG_0211Onto this small Moleskine, I stamped the knit pattern with black ink. For the knit row stamp, I inked it with black ink and then hit the heart with the corner of my favorite red inkpad (Adirondack Earthtones Dye in Currant by Ranger) before stamping onto the Moleskine. Then I used my favorite white gel pen to add embellishments.

IMG_0212For this tag, I inked the single row of knit with black and red ink as described above onto a piece of watercolor paper. I tore that and adhered it to a shipping tag and then added stitches with perle cotton and needle. I typed the text on ledger paper, tore, and adhered at the bottom.

IMG_0208Stocking stuffers, gift tags. Easy peasy.

PanPastel Rubber Stamping on Watercolor Paper Tutorial DIY


Remember my first PanPastel tutorial? So this time I tried something slightly different.

Pan Pastel Tutorial
I first moistened watercolor paper with plenty of water and then smudged my stamp with PanPastel. Then I stamped on the moistened paper. Cool, huh? I love the specks of PanPastel that come off and do its thing on the paper.

Pan Pastel Tutorial
Once dry, I sprayed it with spray fixative to keep the small particles of PanPastel fully set. Of course I had the option of brushing it again with water to smudge everything further which I did in my first tutorial, which is also an option. Just depends on what look you are trying to achieve.

PanPastel Rubber Stamping Tutorial DIY


Here's my latest rubber stamping adventure.

panpastel stamping tutorial I used PanPastels to stamp onto tags.

panpastel stamping tutorial The trick? First rub PanPastel onto a cosmetic spunge and rub the sponge onto the rubber stamp. Next, take a water mist bottle (not spray bottle) and mist the rubber stamp. Then stamp the image onto the tag.

The more water you mist, the more blurry the image gets.

Once the image is dry, you'll want to either blow off the excess PanPastel powder or take a brush and brush the entire tag with water to blend in the excess powder. The latter is what I did to my tags. I also edged the tags with the PanPastels and blended with water.

I typed the text onto notebook paper, teared, and attached to the tags. Then I hand stitched the buttons in place.

Happy stamping. :)
