Christmas Drop-in Word Dies

Hello friends! New today at The Stamps of Life are some new word dies that pair with Word Stand-Up Card Dies. MERRY, NOEL and HO HO HO were just added to the collection of Word Stand-Ups! Just in time for the upcoming holidays….

Here’s a couple samples using Christmas Word Stand-Up Extras

The card folds flat and fits perfectly into an A2 sized envelope for easy mailing!

Isn’t this little elf sweet? I made him using elves2stamp and he fits perfectly on the card front. The gifts and tree are also from the same stamp set. I stamped my sentiment, fussy cut the little reindeer and added stars from the September Card Kit, Joyful Collection.

Here’s another sample using HO HO HO! Fun! I added a little Santa Hat and once again, used the September Card Kit, Joyful Collection to accessorize my card.

This is how it looks when it’s folded flat. Such a fun card to make and receive!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I truly appreciate all visits, questions and comments and hope I inspired you to get started on your holiday cards! Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!


Snowflake Background Die- The Stamps of Life

Hello, friends! It’s a released day over at The Stamps of Life and I have a beautiful background stamp to share with you today called Snowflake Background.

I love these intricate snowflakes! They’re so beautiful… I thought it would be fun to spell out “Snow” by simply diecutting circles and stamping the upperscript2stamp alphabet on them, and lastly stamping a snowman for the “O.” I finished my card off by stamping Let it Snow on to a stitched tag and added ribbon.

This card was “Snow much fun” to make! 😉

Here’s another fun sample I made… This time using owlpudgie7 all dresssed for the weather! I dressed him and stamped my sentiment using the snowman2build stamp and die set. Fun!

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

Pinecones2Stamp- The Stamps of Life

Hello, friends! Happy 1st of October and release day! There are lots of great releases today over at The Stamps of Life that I’m so excited to share with you. Today, I’m sharing this month’s Club Set called Pinecones2stamp. It came just in time to kick off the holiday card making frenzy!

My first card features all of the dies included in the set… no stamping on this card and I assembled it in minutes. Perfect for mass producing holiday cards, but take away Seasons Greetings and you have a winter card. I love versatile stamp and die sets!

For my next sample, I used mainly the stamps to create yet another easy card for mass producing. I stamped my background and just love the pop of red from the berries! I finished it off by stamping and diecutting the pinecones, added my sentiment also included in the set, and finished it off by adding ribbon.

Have you started your Christmas cards yet? I’ve made a few, but before you know it the holiday season just creeps right up on you! In the coming weeks, I plan to make more of both of these cards for my holiday stash. I used all papers and inks by The Stamps of Life.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed today’s cards. Be sure to stop back by in the coming days to see more of the new releases. Wishing you a wonderful day and until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Pop-Up Cards- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends! Do you like pop-up cards? I know I do, and The Stamps of Life just released the new 3-D Pop-Up #2 Drop-in that makes it so easy to create pop-ups!

The die set looks like this. You’re able to make TWO different styles of pop-up cards!

Here’s the first style of pop-up you can make….

I love the flowers included in this and the dimension of the pop-up!

This is the card front using the same flowers to coordinate with the inside.

And here’s the other version…

I love that the rectangle pop-up is large enough to add either a small stamped scene like I did, or you could just stamp a sentiment!

And a very simple card front…

In no time at all I made two very different cards! I know I’ll be making lots more of both of these pop-ups, they’re so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by today! Everything I made to make today’s cards can be found at The Stamps of Life. I hope you have a wonderful day. Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!

Morereindeer2stamp- The Stamps of Life

Hello, friends! I have a fun and adorable new release to share with you, Morereindeer2stamp was just released and it’s a companion set to this month’s Club Set, reindeer2stamp . It’s just darling and so cute, I love it this set!

Perfect for all those little people in your life! It brings back fond memories of when my sons were little and we’d sprinkle oats out on our front lawn for the reindeer on Christmas Eve! I used to always send our littlest Christmas Eve guests home with it, too. I sure wish I had this stamp set back them! Now I wait patiently for grandchildren someday…. (insert sigh…)

Such a cute little reindeer!

Morereindeer2stamp isn’t only for Christmas…. He fits perfectly on a bookmark and you can have a cute little doe by adding some eyelashes and a bow.

I also used border dies to create the background grass and added a sun to my inked sky.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day! For more ideas and inspiration, check out the Gallery. Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Reindeer2stamp- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone! Fall temperatures are in the air where I live, and before you know it the holidays will be here! Reindeer2stamp is this month’s Club Set and it’s released just in time to get started on those holiday cards!

It was so much fun making this card! I started by using a stylus and white acrylic paint to create my sky. While I let it dry, I stamped and colored in my reindeer with colored pencils and die cut all of his accessories. Christmastree2stamp pairs perfectly with this set and that’s what I used to make my snowy fir tree, then added some stars for extra sparkle! Lastly, I die cut my Snow , stamped my sentiment and assembled my card. First Christmas card of the season done!!!!

But…. Reindeer2stamp isn’t just for Christmas! Woodland animals and cards are so popular right now, I couldn’t resist making a doe!

I used the Center Step Card Die as my base. I absolutely love this style card base! I felt this cutie needed some eyelashes and blushed cheeks so I drew in lashes and used Bubblegum ink to make her cheeks. The perfect card to make and send to let someone know how “deer” they are to you!

That’s all for today, but stay tuned there could be a companion set coming out on the 7th of this month (hint, hint!) Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Gingerbread Boy and Gingerbread Girl Fold-it

I love shaped cards! They’re so much fun to make and there are two new ones released today at The Stamps of Life! Just in time to get started on those Christmas cards….

Gingerbread Girl and Gingerbreadman Fold-it are so cute!!!

She’s so “sweet”… I made her busy baking by cutting the top off of a circle to create my bowl, and adding a mixing spoon.

He’s a cutie, too! So fun and easy to make……

I’m planning on using these two little friends for this year’s Christmas cards! For more ideas and inspiration, check out the Gallery!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day❤️
