Make it Monday #197 - Homemade Foam Stickers

Hello friends.  Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge, where this week Laurie shows us how to make homemade foam stickers.  I don't have any of the alphabet dies from PTI, and I've been in the mood to make valentines, so I used the "Wonderful Words: Love" die to make my foam sticker out of.  Here's what I came up with:

I started with some newsprint DSP and then stamped a couple of the flowers from the "Friendly Flowers" stamp set in Pure Poppy and black for the leaves.  I masked the flowers and leaves and then stamped the chevrons (Background Basics: Super Chevrons) also in Pure Poppy at the bottom and top of the DSP.  After cutting out the "love" from my sticky backed foam and a scrap of black cardstock, I peeled off the back of the foam and adhered the "love" to the center of my DSP.  I then snipped off the heart from the black die cut and just adhered the "L" and "ve" to the sticky foam and then added red glitter to the heart shaped "o".  To finish I added some black & white bakers twine and a couple heart die cuts from the "Tiny Tags" die and stamp set, along with a bit of diamond bling. 

I also made a treat holder to match the card:

I even had a few strawberry and chocolate Dove hearts to add to the treat bag...yummmm! 

Check out Laurie's great video and card, and all the other entries right here on Nichole's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day! :0)


  1. Oh Marcia, I just love your treat set! The stamping on newsprint is awesome.

  2. Love that 'love', with the red glittered heart! And every other detail is so cute! the dangling hearts, the stamped hugs and kisses. Adorable set. And, you're responsible for my chocolate craving right now!

  3. What a great idea to stamp over the newsprint! And that red glitter heart in the word "love" is just beautiful.

  4. a super lovely card and treat holder!

  5. Fabulous card and Valentine treats holder, Marcia! the Red, Black and White combo is one of my faves :-)

  6. Fab card and matching treat bag. Love how you glittered just the heart.
