Molding a Slice into a Stamp for Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop


Amazing Crafting Products is proud to be participating in this bloghop which celebrates and says "THANKS" to our men and women serving in the armed forces. Each one of us has a family member, friend or co-worker that has dedicated their life to protect our freedoms and to these brave folks we say "THANK YOU!" Also we would like to say "thanks" to all who support Operation Write Home in providing over two million handmade cards to our Military Men and Women abroad.


If you arrived here and would like to get back to see the rest of the blogs participating... CLICK HERE to head back to Operation Write Home!


You may be wondering why a company of three dimensional product would be part of this event. Two reasons: first because several of our Creative Team Members are Military Families -or- are supporters of Operation Write Home - AND - secondly, because the background paper for this card is hand-stamped from a HANDMADE stamp created using Amazing Mold Putty... REALLY!!!

Creative Team designer Susan, loves making molds of interesting items, many from nature and especially food! She created a mold from a slice of an orange, then when mold was cured, generously lubricated mold with vaseline {because Amazing Mold Putty will fuse to itself}, then filled mold with another batch of Amazing Mold Putty to make a reverse. When cured, she had a relief stamp that is a slice of heaven! Earlier in the week, Creative Team designer Michelle showed how to make stamps using embossing folders and stencils with Amazing Mold Putty - CLICK HERE to view this how-to. A circular border and sentiment by Inkadinkado paired with Operation Write Home's Sketch number 83 complete this sunny "Thank You" card.

BLOG CANDY...

As part of the event, Amazing Crafting Products is hosting a giveaway of AMAZING proportions. One winner will be chosen from those who leave a comment telling us "what you would love to mold in Amazing Mold Putty" on this post.

  13. Gorgeous card. I like the background you created with that mold. I have never made a mold and never had any idea one could do so, but I would like a citrus type mold myself for making backgrounds. I guess I have some neat designs on some dishes that would be cool as molds too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Fabulous card - love the idea of using the mold putty as a stamp! Gosh, what *wouldn't* I make molds of? I have old skeleton keys, decorative buttons, little statues (for faces) ... anything that keeps still long enough!

  31. That is cool that the image is hand made. Very nice work. I would like to try that I think it might wrok really well on these itty bitty hand cuffs that my hubby has for a key chain he was in law enforcement. LOL Or even on one of the carved fish around the house.

  85. Wow!!! This stuff is awesome! Who knew u could use it to make a stamp for cards???!!! I know now! :) I'd make so many things, I'd probably drive my family nuts! I want to make a shadow box using shells and things we have found over the years but the dried up starfish my son found aren't going to work as well in there. I could make a mold of them and then make clean new replicas! Yay!
