Very easy Clean & Simple cards- shadow stamps, a post-it mask, Distress Inks, an image & a sentiment.
The first circle was stamped with Spiced Marmalade, and I stamped a mask onto post-its with the same inking. I cut out 3 or 4 post-its together to give me some spares. I also cut just inside the stamped shape, so I could position it without getting a 'halo' around them when I stamped the next one.
The second circle was coloured with Mustard Seed.
Mask removed- that worked quite well, lol.
Replaced the mask again to add the third circle, in Rusty Hinge.
All three circles stamped.
I found a Penny Black image to use as the focal point, and stamped this in Gathered Twigs.
Then added a sentiment at the bottom.
Creating the second card- First (masked) circle was Barn Door, top one Rusty Hinge,Bottom one Spiced Marmalade.
Then I added a smaller circle at the bottom with Mustard Seed.
The same Penny Black image, this time curved slightly on the block, and another sentiment, using Gathered Twigs again.
Something to be aware of with Fun Foam stamps- they have a VERY low profile on an acrylic block, and its way too easy to get ink on your block & not realise it. You can see the yellow on this one, which I tried- and failed- to hide with the sentiment. I found it wisest to wipe all around your foam stamp with a baby wipe/piece of kitchen roll, then hold it over a white background to make sure you can't see any ink on it. And to wipe your fingers- DI is very wet, and transfers off them.
I did try heating the larger foam circle first to see if it helped give a smoother surface,but not the smaller one. Looking at the circles, I can't see any difference. I found they started to curl a little, and pressed it flat with my fingers. Big mistake! The heat softens it, and your fingers leave indents. If you look at the second couple of pictures, you can see where I practised stamped first, and you can clearly see the dents left in the surface. I reheated it, and pressed it between two acrylic blocks to smooth & flatten it.

Word stamps are VAP Stamps, I think via Dovecraft. I bought them as a box set of about 20, a few years ago.
