Stix2 Mount 'n' Stamp Foam - Make your own Stamps

Here are some beautiful cards by Debbie Frost who has made her own stamps using
Stix2 Mount 'n' Stamp Foam.

Stix2 Mount 'n' Stamp Foam is generally used for mounting unmounted rubber stamps onto blocks but if you run it through your die cutting system using a fairly solid die, you can create your own stamps easily.

Handmade by Debbie Frost

Things you will need:

Pink Gingham Card A4250PINKSMALLGHIN
Lemon Gingham Card A4250LEMONSMALLGHIN
Tinted Black Card A4250TINTBLACK
Tinted Kraft Card A4250TINTKRAFT

Woodware "Hand Drawn Greetings"
Memento Inkpads
Sizzix Bigshot Starter Kit


Here, Debbie has used the platform die from the Sizzix Bigshot Plus starter kit and the foam cuts very easily.

You will find that there is a "cling" side to the foam, which is the side which will attach to your acrylic block and a very sticky side, which is the side you will stamp with.

To remove the sticky just wipe with Stix2 Adhesive Remover.

For the designs above, Debbie has stamped onto a gingham background using Memento ink pads.

Spooky Halloween Box of Bats

Give your friends a spooky fright this October with this fun Halloween Box of Bats made by Jane Collman.

Handmade by Jane Collman

Things you will need:

A4 Black Card A4250TINTBLACK
A4 Orange Stardust Paper SGBCA4ORANGEPAPER
A4 Charcoal Stardust Card SGBCA4CHARCOALCARD
Tape Runner S57269
Glue Pen S57361

Die Cutting Machine


Cut base of box shape out of Black Tinted Card and using Layer Perfect, cut decorative strips enough for both inside and out from Orange Stardust Paper.  Your Layer Perfect will also help you to position the strips before sticking with a Tape Runner. Do not stick square to base yet!

On reverse of orange base square mark the positions where you are going to cut to allow for acetate strips to be threaded through.

You will need a heavyweight acetate for this otherwise the weight of the die cut shapes will be too heavy causing it to flatten. Use the Extra Thick Acetate and cut thin strips to thread through slits as shown in photo.  Use Ultra Clear Double Sided Tape to stick base square to box.

Trim acetate and stick die cut bats to acetate strips using Ultra Clear Double Sided Tape and then decorate inside of box using the Glue Pen and Pick Up Pencil to help with placement.

Make lid from Black Tinted Card and add Orange Stardust Paper panels to outside and top only.

Decorate with more die cut bats and letters.
