My New Rubber Stamps

Last weekend when I was at "A Work Of Heart" studio in San Jose I picked up these face stamps from Invoke Arts ( Lisa Guerin had recommended this set for the images. I also love the faces on them and I created these pieces tonight.
The stamps came unmounted and I thought I'd quickly show you the process for mounting them on cling foam.
When you purchase rubber stamps that are only a rubber sheet, such as these (no wooden block or foam attached)...
You need to purchase cling foam (you can purchase on-line from sites such as:
Place the rubber stamp on the super sticky side. You need to have special rubber cutting scissors, such as Kai scissors ( With the Kai scissors you can easily cut out your stamp shapes (other scissors won't work as well). If the stamp shapes are large or don't have straight edges, a heated exacto knife also works great (
Now you can use your rubber stamps with your acrylic blocks.
I stamped each image on a manila folder for future use. I cut three of them out and created these tags (embellished with black and gold dresden, printed numbers and black and white stripped paper)...
Don't be intimidated to buy rubber stamps unmounted, they're very easy to mount on cling foam and will cost much less.

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. I love, love, love the face stamps, too! I use the victorian and "classic" style ones for my crafting, and I got my daughter an adorable one of HER face from here when I uploaded her picture (on a white background works best) She can sit with mommy and have crafting time with her own little custom picture stamp.

    1. What a great idea Cindy...thanks for the information on custom stamps. I also love crafting play dates with my daughter.

  2. Connie ~ Thanks for the clear instructions on stamp mounting...very helpful! Your tags look great!

  3. Thanks for sharing your ideas of the Invoke face stamps....the tags are the banner under the face.

  4. Wow excellent idea of the face stump and this picture amazing. Thanks for sharing important and excellent post with us.
