DIY Printing Stamp with Craft Foam Shapes

In honor of Valentine’s Day I’ve whipped up a quick little printing project using craft foam shapes.  These are perfect for making your own printing stamps that you can use to stamp paper, fabric or anything else you can think of!

The craft foam shapes are great because most of the cutting work is done for you. They also come with adhesive already on the back, making your stamps ready to attach to your stamping block. You can use the shapes as is, arranging them into your own design:

Or further customize the stamps by cutting some intricate shapes into the stamps for a more organic look.

Once your shapes are cut to your liking and arrange them in your desired pattern.  Peel of the adhesive backing and stick to on a piece of glass, acrylic block or wood block, and Voila! You’ve got a custom stamp. You can use this stamp with an inkpad on paper, or with fabric paint on fabric.

Now print with abandon on your paper, fabric or other substrate. So, raid your kids craft stash and go forth and make something pretty!

  1. Hi! Thank you for checking out my post…yes, this is a great way to get the kids out of their electronics and into doing something analog for a little while. Let me know how it turns out for you if you try it.

  2. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
    let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and
    both show the same outcome.
