Fishtank2Stamp, MoreFish2Stamp & Fish Bowl Fold-it

Hello friends, Happy New Year! I wish you all good health, peace, happiness and all the best in 2021! Did you make any resolutions for the New Year? Mine is to take the time to do more of what I love, and of course that includes cardmaking:)

The Stamps of Life released their monthly Club Set today, fishtank2stamp , with some super cute add ons to the set! There’s morefishtank2stamp and a fun new Fish Bowl Fold-it that coordinates perfectly with this month’s set!

I love fishtank2stamp! It was so much fun creating this fish tank scene! Stephanie thought of everything when she designed this set, so much fun!

I made my next two cards combining fishtank2stamp and morefishtank2stamp

I just love those little starfish and think they’re just adorable! The sentiment is just perfect too, since so many of us are missing friends and family during these difficult days!

Here’s another fun card I made, with a sneak peek a heart die coming soon!

I think these turtles are pretty cute, too!

If you like shaped cards, then the Fish Bowl Fold-it is for you! Like the fish tank, this underwater scene was lots of fun to make too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! For more ideas and inspiration, check out The Stamps of Life Gallery HERE! Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Newly Released Card Dies- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends! I hope you’re all doing well! The Stamps of Life released some brand new die sets, today! All super cute and fun….

First up , is the So Glad We’re Friends Word Die Set. It’s the perfect set to let those special friends know how much they mean to you!

I love the font on this one! There’s also a shadow die included, but I decided not to use it because I wanted more of my window to show. I definitely need to make more cards with this die and send them out to the special friends in my life!

The next release is a really fun background die! Triangle Background Die Set is a 9 piece die set and layers perfectly on an A2 card size.

Isn’t it fun? It really makes your background papers pop, and if you look closely, there’s a stitching around the triangles for more interest.

One more with this die set…. so fun mixing and matching papers!

If you give lots of gift cards out for special occasions like I do, then this next die set is for you! Gift Card Pop-Up Drop-in Insert Die Set is a must have! NOTE*** This die requires an outer edge die, like the 3-D Pop-Up #2 Drop-in***

When the recipient opens the card, the gift card pops up for a fun surprise! There are 13 different dies included in the set, some shown on the inside of my card.

Here’s the front of my card with more included dies shown.

Thanks for stopping by today! All papers and inks I used on my cards can also be found at The Stamps of Life. Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Floral Slimline Die- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends! Hope you’re all doing well! It’s been a little while since I’ve been here because life has been so crazy, busy lately! My full time job is teaching little ones, and in all my 20+ years of teaching, it’s never been so challenging! All I can say is thank goodness for Cardmaking, it’s my stress releaser!

The Stamps of Life released a beautiful new background die today! Floral Slimline Panel w/Bonus Die is a set of 2 dies that includes the floral background panel die and a Bonus shadow die!

I love these flowers! They’re so dainty and fun! I wanted to turn mine into a thank you card, so I paired my background with Vertical Thanks Die. It was a nice change to switch it up and make a vertical slimline. For some reason, I seem to always make them horizontal!

I was able to put this card together quickly by using Stamps of Life Ink pads for my background with blending brushes. I think this die is so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay well and healthy and until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Fancy Pumpkin Fold-it- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends! August is winding down (sigh….) and fall is fast approaching! I’m never ready to say goodbye to summer, but I do love the colors of fall, pumpkins, apple picking, crisp mornings and many other things associated with it. Are you ready for fall?

Fancy Pumpkin Fold-it was released today by The Stamps of Life and it’s so pretty and versatile!

I think it’s so elegant! But…. it doesn’t have to be! You don’t have to have a fancy pumpkin, you can die cut it not using the scrolled layering pieces and have solid layers! Love the versatility!

I’m looking forward to making these pumpkins this year as place settings for Thanksgiving and cards! Be sure to check out the Gallery for more samples and inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day. Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

HauntedHouse2Stamp- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends! It’s hard to believe but fall is just around the corner! I’m not ready to say farewell to summer just yet, but, I do enjoy fall and making fall cards! It’s a release day over at The Stamps of Life and the release I’m sharing is all about Halloween! I’m warning you, it’s SPOOKTACULAR!

hauntedhouse2stamp is so cute AND comes with coordinating dies!

I just love this! If you enjoy coloring, this stamp set is for you! If you’re someone who does NOT like coloring, it’s perfect for you, too! Why? The die set has an inside die that makes it easy to cut a solid piece with details on the house, or you can paper piece different colors of paper. Your choice!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day! I’ll be spending the rest of my day making more of these cards for Halloween. Until the next time… Happy Stamping!
