Sizzix Blog Hop: Die Cut Your Own Foam Stamps

I'm delighted to be participating in another Sizzix Blog Hop featuring dies designed by Eileen Hull.  To see all the projects in the hop, simply click the "hop forward" link on the logo below:

Today's hop features the Sizzix Bigz Die - Flowers, 3-D #2:

You can use this die to create these cool three-dimensional flowers:

But you can also use this die to create a collection of cool foam stamps!


Simply die cut a piece of craft foam and glue it to a thicker piece of craft foam and you have a fun stamp!

I used the more scallopy of the two flowers and the small flower to stamp out this background paper:

Which I used as the background for this layout:

I hand cut the title:

And I made a dimensional flower using the die, book pages, and some watercolor:

You can see that I used two Balzer Designs for TCW stencils: the Leaf Frame (for the leaves) and the Herringbone (hiding behind the flower) -- both in 12x12.

This is a great die with lots of possibilities.  Hop on to the next blog to see lots more creativity! 

And be sure to visit the Oh My Crafts blog if you'd like a chance to win a die!

Thanks for stopping by!
