Hi Angela! Welcome to TwoPeas!
The answers to all your questions are YES! Recently in the stamping board, we have had challenges to stamp on shrink plastic and craft foam too.
I hope you will stick around and get involved on the Stamping board, it is a great place to learn.

I have heard that if you heat (as in, by using a heating tool, such as if you were heat embossing) photo paper it will bubble. Can anyone confirm this?

Angela. As Heidi says, the answer is a resounding YES!!! But! Fair warning... Not all inks/paints work on many non-paper materials. If you want to stamp on things like glass, glazed ceramic, bare metal & plastic, I recommend investing in a StazOn inkpad (black) for the actual stamping. There are many options for actually coloring the image, tho'--permanent markers, many craft paints to name just two.
Heat embossing using embossing powders usually requires pigment ink & it will not necessarily 'bond' to all materials.
But don't let any of this scare you. Every one of us started out knowing 'zip' about stamping AND we all continue to learn more as we continue playing with stamps...

Welcome, Angela! Yes, you can stamp on these things and more. Like Daniel said, there are different inks to use for different things. We hope you stay with us. We keep learning and relearning things here. Everyone is happy to help!
