Make It Monday–Button Background

This Monday’s PTI challenge was to use fun foam as a die cut stamp and as a die cut on a project. This was so fun! I had never used fun foam as a stamp before - it was so easy and it worked beautifully.

First, I die cut the fun foam with PTI’s button dies to use as background stamps. I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed them with American Crafts’ Zing embossing powders. Love it!

Then I die cut a yellow piece of fun foam with a Mat Stack die, then dry embossed it with PTI’s polka dot Impression Plate. That turned the foam into a kind of leathery material that was really cool!

Added some zig zag stitching and a centerpiece image and die cuts (Limitless Layers) to finish it off.

This was a very fun project and I will definitely be using Fun Foam again! Now off with ya so ya can go create your own masterpiece,
