Video: Make Your Own Stamps with Craft Foam

Join us to see just how quick and easy it is to make your own stamps with Craft Foam. We cut out our shapes on the Cricut Explore but you could do this with almost any electronic cutting system or even by hand with scissors!

Make Your Own Stamps with Craft Foam

Have you ever wanted to use a stamp in a project and didn’t have something on hand that was just right? It’s easy with craft foam sheets to cut out a shape and make a stamp quickly. They won’t replace the fine detail of real stamps, but they have their own charm that can be right for some projects.

Make stamps with Craft Foam

Cricut Design Space Custom Material Settings

Like we said, you can do this by hand or with any cutting system. If you are cutting on a Cricut Explore like we did here are the setting you want to use.

  • Cut Pressure: 135
  • Multicut: 3x
  • Blade Type: Deepcut Blade

First you need to set up your custom settings.

  1. Prepare your project to cut.
  2. Click the Go button on the toolbar in Design Space.
  3. Set the material dial on the Explore to Custom.
  4. Back in Design Space click the Custom Materials link.
  5. On the Custom Materials screen click the Add New Material button at the bottom.
  6. Enter a name for the new material.
  7. Enter the Cut Pressure, Multicut, and Blade Type settings listed above.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Click Done.

Now these custom settings are saved in your Cricut account and you can use them any time. Set the material dial on the Explore to Custom, and then choose the name of the material you created from the drop down menu under Set on the cut screen.

Materials Used In This Project

Here are some of the key materials used in this project. The foam sheets are quite a lot, but this is a nice deal for 50 sheets especially if you are an Amazon Prime member for free shipping.

  1. I think that I will use an acrylic block with Tsukineko Tack n Peel. The Tack n Peel will hold the foam to the block and you will be able to see where you are stamping. When you are done, you can just take the craft foam off and use the block for another foam stamp.

  2. What an awesome idea! Thanks for the detailed instructions. You guys are too funny…..can’t believe I haven’t seen you 2 before. I happened to see a post from George in Cricut Cut Ups so I headed over to check out your site. I can’t wait to see what other bits of creativity you have to share. 🙂
