Fun Foam Impression Stamps

Fun Foam Stamps Part 3 (see part 1 and part 2)?  I could make stamps out of foam all day.... :)  But these are a bit different.  They require you to make an impression in the foam and printing the background instead of the foreground.  Fun foam works great for these kinds of stamps because you can use a simple ballpoint pen to create an impression.  I drew a wood grain on one and a simple vine on the other.  I then trimmed the foam and glued it to a piece of cardboard using tacky glue.

After a quick testing, I knew these would work great as backgrounds.  I can't wait to test out the wood grain with some brown ink (unfortunately I didn't have any--so I went with green).

I created a blank/just because card using the vines, and a thank you card out of the wood grain by stamping a leaf overtop and layering it with a cute house stamp.

These have a ton of potential for all kinds of designs.  These were a great proof of concept--I can't wait to think of a more elaborate design to try out next.
