Sizzix Pumpkin Fold it & Pray Statement Set- The Stamps of Life

Hi everyone! I’m back with a second post today.  It’s August 1st which means new releases AND a FLASH SALE going on at The Stamps of Life!

Sizzix Pumpkin Fold-it is perfect for Halloween, fall, or Thanksgiving!

I have a Halloween and Thanksgiving card to share with you.


I used Sizzix Tags & Words & Stamps & Dies for my tag and web4us stamp set to create my tag.

This is the inside of my card:


I used TSOL Tag Holder Die Set to attach my coffee card. The banner was made using chalksayings2stamp  stamp set with the coordinating Banner Die.

And here is a Thanksgiving version:


I used Sizzix Happy Thanksgiving 3-D Sentiments to decorate the front of my pumpkin.  I send out multiple Thanksgiving cards,  and with these dies,  you make multiples quickly and easily:)

I love the Pray Statement Set!

Donuts2Stamp-The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  And just like that it’s August 1st!  I can’t beleieve how this summer, as always, is flying by.  The first of the month means new releases at The Stamps of Life and this set goes right to the top of my favorites!  It’s just adorable!

These are the stamps and coordinating dies:


Donut Dies

Cute, right?!  Who doesn’t like a delicious donut or two?\

These are the cards I made:

For this card, I mainly used just the dies and stamped only my sentiment.



I used Sizzix Dotted Rectangles to create the look of a “donut box” and covered it with acetate sheet.  I added a little tag using Sizzix Tags & Words  & Stamps & Dies .


This previously released coffee4two  stamp and die set works perfectly with donuts!


Flip-its are always really fun and easy!  I used Sizzix Circle #2 Flip-its Card Set to make this card.


 The sentiment just makes me smile:)

Lastly, I used Sizzix Royal Stand-ups Card Die Set to make this birthday card.


*All papers and inks used on all of the above cards are by the TSOL*

As I said, this is such a fun stamp set!  It’s right up there in my list of favorites!  For some more inspiration and great ideas check out the Gallery!

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:

summer4fun 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:


These are the new coordinating dies:

island2stamp 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.

Sizzix Get Well 3-D Drop-in


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.


Such a fun way to send well wishes!

Next up is the 8 piece Sizzix Dotted Oval.

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*

Unicornpudgie plus Solids4Rainbow & Sayings4Rainbow-The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  It’s the 7th of the month which means BRAND new stamps and dies at The Stamps of Life!  The best part… two out of the three sets are Flash Sale items which means a 25% savings for you:)

The first item is unicornpudgie5.  It’s the 5th in a growing series of pudgie animals that Stephanie has come out with.  Cute, cute, cute!!! This IS a flash sale item, too:)


Solids4Rainbow  coordinates with last month’s Club Set called rainbow2stamp.  It is also a Flash Sale item!


Sayings4Rainbow is the third set being released today.  Check out all these awesome sentiments!


Now to share my cards….  I’ll begin with unicornpudgie5.

 I made three different cards:


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.”


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.


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


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!


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.
