Practical Scrappers Ten Things - Stamps

Hello scrappy friends!  Today I wanted to share different ways you can use stamps on your projects.

I purchased this brown sheet of fun foam from my local craft store and I wanted to stamp a sentiment to create a "faux leather" look.  I used my heat gun to heat up the fun foam and then while the sheet was hot, I stamped the sentiment into it.  I then took my Tim Holtz Distress Ink and my foam applicator and tinted it to make the words stand out more.  The heart on the top right hand corner was stamped and cut out and then I used my date stamp to add some words with archival ink.  The tree was stenciled and then I used modeling paste for the tree and then I hand painted each dimensional leaf and outlined them with a pen.  I have a lot of sequins in my stash so I adhered them randomly to my layout.  For the trunk of the tree, I used some gold embossing powder.

There are many different ways to use stamps and the team at Practical Scrappers has a few more creative ideas.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are inspired to create with your stamps.
