Cute card! I have yet to try this technique, also. Am I right that you need to heat the fun foam a little bit (how long so as not to melt the fun foam?) and then stamp a dry stamp into the heated fun foam. Or should you stamp into Versamark first and then onto the fun foam? Thanks for the tips. Lynn
I love to dry emboss so this really caught my eye! Can you please tell us how you emboss on the fun foam?!! Thank you for sharing.

Cindy may have some more hints, but here's how I do this. Cut a square of fun foam off the sheet a bit larger than your stamp block. Heat this piece of fun foam until it begins to curl, with your heat gun. Don't heat it too long or it will begin to melt. Immediately press your stamp firmly into the warm foam. I count slowly to about 15 and then remove stamp. If you've held the stamp firmly, while applying even pressure, you should get a good image. Then cut out impressed image. I have found that I am not nearly as successful with detail stamps or larger stamps. For example, the largest snowflake from Snowflakes never comes out for me, but the other, smaller snowflakes, come out great!
