Glitter fun foam

   My new favorite thing to cut out with my die cuts is glitter fun foam. I decided to try this out after I got Lawn Fawn's lawn cut set Cole's Abc's for Mother's day this year. I had seen a video that Lawn Fawn had over on their  Pintrest page. They had mentioned you can use  fun foam and felt with your dies. So, after I got the alphabet dies I purchased small pack of the glitter fun foam. Now at most craft stores they have regular fun foam or the kind with the sticky back. I decided I liked the idea of the sticky backing because after you cut it with the die cut you can just peel off the backing and have your own custom sticker. (You also don't have to mess with glue then.) Which is great especially for alphabet stickers. Many times I have had alphabet stickers and run out of vowels or had some random leftover letters that I just didn't know what with them. I always seem to run out of E's. Eleanore's name for example we decided to spell with the silent e on the end. After using regular alphabet stickers for her name  I can't spell anything else that requires an e. The kid have sensory box's that their Mamaw made for them. They loved it when I took and customized their boxes by putting their name on the side in glitter foam.  The fun foam is good for cutting out sentiments  and shapes too. Here is a card I used the glitter fun foam on for the Lawnscaping texture challenge. I used the cloud and umbrella shapes from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby set. The bushes from the into the woods set where re purposed into clouds too.
Grey Bunny Hello card
It's too bad the picture doesn't do the glitter justice. The glitter fun foam, pearl vellum, and sequins show up so much better in person. Anything shimmery is so hard to capture with just a photograph. Another example of glitter fun foam on a card.
Zebra wild girl birthday card
 My first ever Lawn Fawn stamp set was the Critters on the Savanna. I love the zebra from that set, it was just right for my card. This would be great birthday card for a girl.
