Raiders of the Lost Stash

Back in August, the n*studio creative squad was stash busting! I pulled out some of my favorite supplies and got to work. This is the project that was featured on Nat’s blog.


We are raiding our stashes this week. What good artist or crafter worth their salt doesn’t have a considerable stash of supplies just waiting for inspiration? In my stash I had a few sets of Sizzix thinlits dies that I haven’t used in ages. These dies and my n*studio artfoamies were the inspiration for these beautiful note cards.

I love my n*Studio artfoamies and wanted to show you a new way to use them. Begin by spraying a few colors of Dylusions Ink Spray onto a watercolor note card. Don’t be stingy with the spray! You will want a nice base of color to work with.

Next, spray some water onto your artfoamie making sure the entire design is wet. Gently press it onto the note card. After a few seconds, remove the artfoamie and dab a paper towel onto the card to pick up the excess moisture. (Dab – don’t wipe!) Because the ink sprays are water reactive, we will be pulling ink off of the card leaving the design of the artfoamie behind. Repeat until you have a design you like.

Choose a few sentiments from the die set and run them on black cardstock through your die cutting machine. Fix your sentiment onto your note card with a liquid glue like Tombow Mono.


This is a fun way to use your artfoamies so be sure to try this at home and share your creations with us! Get into that supply stash and get creative.
