Instagrammed Memories {WSC 124}

Welcome to this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch post! You'll find all of the WSC details as well as the original sketch over at the MFT blog, so be sure to stop over there, if you haven't already. I'm glad you stopped by because I've got (what I think is) a really fun card and technique to share with you today!

I'll start with the stamped Instagram camera image you see in the picture above. Now, I bet you're wondering where in the world did she find that cute Instagram camera stamp to match her Instagram Cute Camera die cut, huh?!  Well, I've seen a few online tutorials detailing how you can actually make a foam stamp from your dies and fun foam, so I googled it and came up with a Cute Camera foam stamp!

One word of advice - play around with your foam stamp as the foam seems to really soak up the ink. At first, you might not be overly pleased with the quality of your stamped image, but keep stamping away and use a piece of foam underneath to give your stamping an extra cushion. I've used Kraft ink on Natural card stock above, and I love the combination of the two, but I did play around with my foam stamp and stamped off quite a few times before getting the images that you see pictured. Stick with it, you'll be happy you did!

Here's a look at the inside of the card. I've again my die-cut foam stamp created from Die-namics Cute Cameras and a triple layer of adhesive backed fun foam to stamp a fun collage-y background of instagram cameras. A quad of Fishtail Flags pull your eye to the sentiment from Captured Memories.

Thanks for stopping by to see my WSC card. I hope you're inspired to give this week's sketch a try! If you are so inspired, please use keyword MFTWSC124 over at SCS so we can see it!
