Stamping into Friendly Plastic by Alison Hall


 
 
 


 

Hello crafty people! I have another Friendly Plastic project for you today. This stuff is addictive!!! You can find this technique on Liz Welch's Bend It Shape It DVD, where she doesn't just use rubber stamps!

 

Here's What I Used...

 

Friendly Plastic - Metallic Solid Burnt Orange/Black, Metallic Solid Copper/Black, Metallic Solid Green/Black
Kaisercraft Clear Single Stamps - Arty, Chevron, Distress, Hessian, Lattice, Numbers, Sketchy, Tiny Dot, Triangles
StazOn Ink - Jet Black
Orange Card
Shallow Bowl of Cold Water

 

This is What To Do...


 

1. Cut off 9 squares of Friendly Plastic, 3 each of Burnt Orange, Copper & Green.
 

2. Place your first square of FP on a small piece of craft mat, & heat it for a few moments with the heat gun. Waft the heat gun over the plastic, so that you don't over heat & get blisters forming.
 

3. Use StazOn ink to stamp into the molten plastic, then place the whole thing, (mat, plastic & stamp) into the bowl of cold water, to harden again. Once set, the stamp will come off cleanly. Trim the edges of the plastic, if needed.
 

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 for the other eight pieces of plastic, then arrange & glue your pieces to black card. Mount onto an orange card blank to finish.

 

Here's a closer look at the lovely stamped texture.
 
 
 
 

 

Until next week...happy crafting,
