"Make it Masculine" -Stretch the Cover Die

Hello friends! 

I am excited to be part of the Educator Instagram Blog Hop today. I took the chance to create something different this time...with a new "toy"-Simon Hurley's Stamping Foam.
 
 The theme of the Instagram Hop is " "Make it Masculine". 

 I was intrigued and almost a bit skeptical about the Stamping Foam at first. Once I purchased it from Scrapbook.com, I now realized that it is such a fun tool to get more mileage to your stencils and dies.

 It takes the heat really well. Once I heated the foam up with the heat fun. I then pressed it against Curving Leaves Die for 20 second and you get the print onto the stamping foam.

  Then I inked up the stamping foam with various colors. This foam is now YOUR STAMP. And...voila! Since I bought the stamp foam with a circle, I get extra shape images which I love.

Therefore, you now see the "Curving Leaves Dies in PRINT! Isn't it cool? Not to diminish the use of Curving Die , I cut up a strip of the  die and used it at the border (see the white strip at the bottom).

 I placed the strip over Brush Silver Metallic Cardstock and this gives the design a great accent and interest. The sentiment from One-Go Greetings Stamp Set as then added on top of the stamped circle.

Love you design! Like the way you combined the design from the foam and the actual die cut. I also love using the stamping foam but have not gotten the round version so far. Have you tried it with Altenew’s embossing folders? The Beautiful Bergenia folder makes a lovely image and design from the foam.

Love the card and use of die. Pretty color combinations. I have the rectangle version...but the circle one opens up new possibilities.

awesome design Virginia. I got this stamping foam this past week. It's perfect to use with dies. Haven't tried it with stencils.
