Summer4Fun & Island2Stamp Dies- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  It's the 20th of the month which means new releases at The Stamps of Life!  There are TWO new die sets being released TODAY!  Both of the die sets coordinate with past released stamp sets, that I love! WOO HOO! No more fussy cutting!!!!

 First I'll share a die set called summer4fun. The die set is a Flash Sale item today!  Both the stamp and die set are new to me, and I  think they're just adorable!  A perfect summer time set to have in your collection!

This is what the stamp set looks like:

These are the coordinating dies:

Here are the cards I made:

For the base of my card I used the mini Sizzix Tree Step-Ups Card and to create the look of waves I used Sandal Dies which has a wave die included in the set. It was a simple card to make. This would be a great card to send to someone heading to the beach:)

I used the same Sandal Dies once again to create my water.  My beach umbrella was made with umbrella4you stamp and die.

The newly released  island2stampdies coordinate with the  island2visit stamp set.

This is the stamp set:

island2visit

These are the new coordinating dies:

Once again, I used the Sandal Dies  to make my water in the background, as I did with my previous cards.

This card has nothing to do with the beach or an island, but I was thinking it would work perfectly as a retirement card, too. The base of my card was made with Sizzix Friends Forever Step-ups Card Die Set. You can find it here.

I used all papers, inks, and embellishments from The Stamps of Life to create my cards.

I'm so happy that there are now dies to go with these stamp sets!  Summertime is my my favorite season and I love making summery cards:)  I'm wishing I were sitting on a beach somewhere, anywhere, RIGHT NOW!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

 

 

Sizzix Dotted Oval Dies & Sizzix Get Well 3-D Drop-in – The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I’m excited to share some cards with you using BRAND NEW  dies at The Stamps of Life by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard.  I love them both, and think you will, too. The best part… They are both FLASH SALE items today!

The first set is the Sizzix Get Well Drop-in

*NOTE* To use this die, you must have one of the related base card dies.  This die will work with any of the following: Sizzix 3-D Scallop w/Gifts Drop-ins, Sizzix 3-D FlowersDrop-ins  or Sizzix 3-D Banner Drop-ins.

Here are a couple of cards I made using this die.

I used Sizzix Dotted Rectangles  and Bandage Dies  for my card front.

And here is the inside…. I love the surprise element of the pop-up!

One more…

For this card I used tea4two and moretea4us with the coordinating die set.  I also used Sizzix Circles, Dotted Framelits Set to stamp my sentiment on.

IMG_5111

Such a fun way to send well wishes!

Next up is the 8 piece Sizzix Dotted Oval.

I personally think that these are a “must have”.  They layer beautifully and coordinate well with Sizzix Circles, Dotted Framelits and Sizzix Dotted Rectangles which I used on my card.  My vase of flowers was made with flowers2share.

I hope you like these new releases as much as I do:)

*All papers and inks I used are by TSOL*

 I made three different cards:

4E17F478-900E-40E7-89DC-1A8615E005AC

For the base of my card, I used Sizzix Friends Forever Step-Ups Card Die Set.  I  colored in my rainbow and unicorn using TSOL markers ,  added some bling, and was done!

4B62EF84-5433-4C71-9865-105ADC4298AE (1)

Another one….  with some added “bling.”

1B0BD67B-1AEF-418B-8DD1-D96E5C27F50A

I used Sizzix Circles, Scalloped Framelits Die Set and Sizzix Dotted Circle Dies for my card base.  I love this Thank You Collection Patterned Paper!

And now for some Rainbow cards…

These are the cards I created using solids4rainbow with rainbow2stamp.

IMG_0003

Super simple…. I love this set because I’m NOT a colorer !

IMG_0002

I DID color this card, and used the sentiments to stamp on each of the cards.  I used Sizzix Horizontal Card Front Drop-in for my card base. I love using vellum for shaker cards!

IMG_0004

I used sayings4rainbow for my sentiment on this card. I used TSOL Circle Dies for my base for the rainbow, and used the negative space for my hearts, putting patterned paper behind them. To create the smiles on my clouds, I used Sizzix Hello Sunshine Triplits. It did not photograph well, but the clouds are all sparkly with white glitter.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions, and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Happy 4th of July Bear2Stamp Flip-its-The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!!!! Happy 4th of July!  I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday.  It’s a beautiful day…. where I live, and hope it is where you live, too.  I have a quick card to share with you before I head for some family fun.

This card took no time at all to make and I LOVE interactive cards!

IMG_0117

To make this card I used the Sizzix Star Flip-its and bear2stamp stamp set with dies. The basket is a die from a coordinating set, called friend4bear dies.  My flag is a cupcake topper and I filled my basket with some mini flowers.  I added some twine and was finished.  Super quick and easy!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments.  Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!

Behind every rainbow is some sunshine, so I paired the stamp set with Sizzix Hello Sunshine Triplits .  

IMG_0001

A pink and blue rainbow?!  Why not?!  That’s what’s so fun about making cards….they can be any way you want them to be!  I used the Sizzix Square Stand-up to complete this card.

Here are some more great samples and ideas in TSOL Gallery!

And now for the Flash Sale items…..

The Dream Sentiment set is another fun and versatile set!

Dream Statement Set

See how many possibilities there are….

I paired “dream” with The Stamps of Life Stitched Star Dies.

IMG_0073

Can you tell how much I LOVE Stand-up card dies?  This time I used Sizzix Scalloped Circle Stand-ups Card Die Set.  I love how the “dream” fits perfectly on the Stand-ups!

I am also in love with 3-D Pop-ups… Stephanie has made it so easy, peasy to make these types of cards!

One thing you need to know… in order to use the 3D Pop-up Dies you need to own one of the following card bases for it to to coordinate with.  You may already own one… They are: Sizzix 3-D Scallop w/Gifts Drop-ins, Sizzix 3-D Flowers Drop-ins or, the soon to be retired Sizzix 3-D Banner Drop-ins.  I love how Stephanie comes out with new to work with your old ones!

You Are Loved…. is just beautiful, I think.

Sizzix You Are Loved 3-D Drop-in

It doesn’t look like much on it’s own, but inside a card, the recipient will definitely be wowed!

Here are my samples I designed:

IMG_5870

On my card front I used Sizzix Triplits Spring Bird and Newport Flower Dies.

Here’s the “WOW” part…

IMG_5871

Unexpected…. and I think beautiful!  Perfect for any occasion, really.

One last card:

IMG_4963

On my card front, I used, list2write stamp set, Notebook Edge Die, scarecrow2stamp with dies, and Sizzix Dotted Rectangle Dies.

IMG_4964

Everyone wants to know they’re loved by somebody….. which is why I think this die works for a “Just Because” card or any occasion!

Hello everyone!  I’m here to share a BRAND NEW die released today,  at  The Stamps of Life.

I LOVE this…. it’s called  Big Banner Die 

Look how much fun!

Big Banner Die Set

IMG_0020

I decorated my banner with Sizzix Border Word Dies, Mini Flower Dies, along with Sizzix Half A2 Card Set .

I used a few different dies on this banner, too.  I used the following:

Sizzix Happy Birthday Card Set, Sizzix Triplits Party Hat, and Sizzix 5×7 Circle Flip-its Card Set for the balloons.

So many possibilities with this set!

If you think you may be interested in purchasing this die, I wouldn’t wait too long because there is only a limited quantity of them…. Stephanie designed this for her daughter, who is a school teacher, and did not have a large quantity of these  dies made.
