Take the foam sheet and cut a rectangle of 4×6, which is the standard size for a greeting card. Draw your pattern on it. Remember you will have to cut out the shapes so try first with a simple design. I made some Christmas trees and stars.

Tomas la hoja de foamy y cortes un rectángulo de 10×15 cm, que es el tamaño estándar para una tarjeta. Dibuja tu patrón. Recuerdas que tendrá que recortar las formas, así que primero intentes con un diseño simple. Hice algunos árboles de navidad y unas estrellas.

Using your craft knife, cut the shapes out. Don’t make to small shapes as the paint will stick in it and won’t appear when stamping.

Usando el cutter, cortas las formas. No hagas formas demasiadas pequeñas, ya que la pintura se pegará y no aparecerá al estampar.

Glue a piece of cardboard on the back of the foam, with a glue gun for example. This will give your stamp a sturdy backdrop and will help you to apply it easily on the paper sheet. With a brush or a sponge brush put paint on the foam stamp. Be sure to spread the paint everywhere, then apply the stamp on the paper and press to ensure that of the surface is well stamped on the paper.

Pegues un pedazo de cartón en la parte posterior de la espuma, con una pistola de silicon, por ejemplo. Esto le dará a tu sello un fondo resistente y te ayudará a aplicarlo fácilmente sobre la hoja de papel. Con un pincel o una esponja, coloques pintura sobre el sello. Asegúrate de extender la pintura por todas partes. Luego apliques el sello sobre el papel y presiones para que toda la superficie se imprime.

You can apply the stamp directly on your greeting card. In this case you will need a sheet of paper of 5×17 than you will fold in the middle. You will apply the stamp on the front part of your card.

Or you can stamp on a white cardstock and once the paint is dry cut it out and glue it on a colored sheet of 5×17 folded in half.

Whatever option you choose, I suggest you to make a few try on plain paper to see how your stamp works.

I know that December is always a rush , so if you don’t have time to make your own stamped card, you can print the ones I made. They came in two colors red and grey! Enjoy!

Puedes aplicar el sello directamente en tu tarjeta. En este caso, necesitarás una hoja de papel de 12x 30 que doblará a la midad. Aplicas el sello en la parte frontal de tu tarjeta.

O puedes estampar en una cartulina blanca y una vez que la pintura esté seca, cortar el dibujo y pegarlo sobre una hoja de color de 5×17 doblada por la mitad.

Cual sea la option que eliges, te sugiero que pruebes tu sello sobre un papel corriente para ver cómo funciona.
