I’m so excited about mermaid2stamp with coordinating dies!  Total cuteness!  It   pairs so well with shells2stamp or can be used by itself. So much fun for the summer!

I used the Sizzix Half A2 Card as my card base and once again, the November 2017 Card Kit for my sentiment.img_0977

The sentiments used on the inside is from the December 2017 Card Kit Club.  The Card Kits come with the best sentiments, I think! I use them all the time.

fireworks4squirrel and fireworks4squirrel Die Set is such a cute set to celebrate the 4th of July! I LOVE the fourth of July!  I have the best memories of when I was a little girl celebrating and carried on the tradition by hosting a BBQ every year at my house.  I live on a lake and we always sit and watch or take a boat out to view the gorgeous fireworks!

Here are the samples I made using this fun set:

img_1062

I used all glitter paper and embossed in gold.  This card was a fun experiment because it was the first time I ever embossed on glitter paper…. I wasn’t sure if it would work, but it did!

img_1518

This time I used the Shadow Box Die as my card base and gave my little squirrel a flag to hold.

Star Background Die- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  It’s all about stars today and lots of them! There is a new die that has been released by  Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard called Sizzix Card Front 

It’s perfect for so many different occasions!

img_1622

I paired the star card front with Shine Statement stamp & die set The die and all of the sentiments coordinate beautifully with this background!

***Note: This die is VERY intricate and I found that for the best results with cutting you need a Sizzix  Precision Base Plate or use wax paper and a cheap dryer sheet under the card stock when cutting through your machine.***

All papers and dies used today can be found at The Stamps of Life

Check out the Gallery for some more fun samples using this die!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check back on the 20th of this month because there are more exciting stamps and dies being released! I hope you have a wonderful day and want you to know I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!
