MCT- Teach Me Thursday

Hello! Today is Teach Me Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today I'll share how I created these stamped feathers using the Believe In Your Dreams set, fun foam, and a stencil.

I love the new Believe In Your Dreams stamp and die set. It's so pretty! I wanted to use it in a different way, so I grabbed some fun foam to create my own solid feather stamps. I used the dies to cut the fun foam feathers, and then I taped them to clear blocks with regular tape runner. Then I inked it with Mint Julep Hero Arts Shadow Ink. I laid a stencil on top of the inked fun foam stamp, and smooshed the Soft Pool ink pad on it. I rolled the edges of the now inked and stenciled fun foam stamp in the Soft Pool ink as well. Then I stamped that on my cardstock, and VOILA! To finish my design, I splattered black ink on the panel, and stamped the greeting from the Believe In Your Dreams set. I cut the panel out with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies.

p.s. I have a tip to share for cleaning the tape off of your clear block. I used an alcohol swab to get all the sticky stuff off...PLUS the alcohol swab cleans your clear blocks like new! I get mine at Walgreens. A box of 200 alcohol swabs for like 3 bucks! Score! {by the bandages}


  1. Your card is so beautiful. Love the colors!! What a super clever and creative idea; Great tutorial. Love the ways you used Miss Emma's goodies. Your feathers turned out so pretty and your paint splatters added a dimensional look too. YOU ROCK!!

  2. So awesome! Love your patterned feathers! Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. That's a great card and I love the pretty color you used.


  4. I was thinking about using the fun foam for making stamps and now I know it works great. I love the technique of the stencil on the stamp...I will sure try this one out. Thanks for the tip on alcohol wipes. Baby wipes and hand wipes like from the restaurant don't have the high alcohol. Beautiful card and great tutorial.
