Boldly Going – Tania Ahmed

Hello from my Creative Squad! Today we have a sweet suite of cards from Tania Ahmed using my Clam Hex and Signals foam stamps. Check out her video below. This month’s theme is Boldly Going – Go BOLD with color or pattern this month and really make something that is packed with visual POP! This is no time to be subdued or subtle. Go Bold!!!


This month, I decided to keep things simple and create some quick and easy cards using Nat’s Art Foamies called Signals and Clam Hex. In fact, you can use any of Nat’s Foamies because I used the backside of the stamp to get a solid hexagon! This is a fantastic way to get your Art Foamies to do double duty and you can achieve some very unique shadow or halo effects if you use both the flat back and the designed side of the Art Foamies.

The Jane Davenport Hybrid Squid Inks were perfect to use with this month’s theme of keeping things bold which is right up my alley!

I hope that you enjoy the video tutorial and play along with the Creative Squad! Thanks for watching 😊

My process was something you could do with just a couple foam stamps – I used Nat’s Clam Hex and Signals stamps. I started by stamping with the back of the hex stamp.

Then the Signals stamp in another bold color…

Next I cut my patterned paper down to a size that would fit on blank cards.

And then I put them together with some word stickers.

You could use this method to make a variety of cards.

Thank you Tania – what a perfect quick and easy Summer Stamping project! You can find all of my Foam Stamps in my online shop. Here are some of the other supplies Tania used:

Keep the Rhythm – Art Journal

“I need to be alone for certain periods of time or I violate my own rhythm.” Lee Krasner

So true- while I am a very extrovert person – I also love long stretches of alone time :) For my rhythm of the journal page I used the Midcentury Squared foam stamp with UTEE and then added some acrylic ink on top. Then I used ink to draw the lady .

On the left here i used Watercolor and added it to my foam stamp – Love the look. the Signal foam stamp on the right was stamped with acrylic paint.

A true mixed media page :)

Here are some of the supplies I used:
