Miss “View’

We all have someone that is, or was in our lives that we miss.  Today’s card is one I made for a friend that I miss.  I thought I’d post it before I drop it in the mailbox.  Just about all the products used are from  THE STAMPS OF LIFE beginning with the BASIC STEP-UP card by SIZZIX/ STEPHANIE BARNARD.  

The stamps used are from a few different sets that can all be found on TSOL site.  They’re called TV2STAMP, CRAYONS2STAMP and SIZZIX WINDOWS FRAMELITS W/ STAMPS.  The ovals I used for the sentiment are SPELLBINDERS.  I’m in ❤ with Stephanie’s LOVE STORY COLLECTION DP!  The quality is amazing, it’s double sided and all coordinated. This card was fun to make and has a happy feel to it:). Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look!  Happy Stamping! 



Welcome Little One 

Hello!  Today’s card I’m sharing with you is a baby card I was asked to make for a baby shower.  I  used my ONSIE4BABY stamp set made by THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  The It’s A Boy sentiment is from a retired STAMPIN’UP set, but I’m not sure of the name of it…the box it came in is long gone.  The tag is SIZZIX FRAMELITS TAGS AND WORDS by THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  This tag set was one of the best purchases I ever made, I use it all the time! It was fun making a baby card, it’s been quite a while since I’ve made one.  Thanks for stopping by today:). Feel free to leave a question or a comment.  Happy Stamping!


A Valued Opinion

Happy Memorial Day friends! I understand and value the true meaning of Memorial Day, but I have to tell you, this three day weekend was just what the doctor ordered.  I feel like I accomplished so much.  The best part was doing the things I love… Spending time with my family, getting some work outs in and of course, stamping!

Today I’m sharing this cute polka dotted piggy card.  Isn’t she cute?  I’ve made a few cards a few posts back with this set, but took it back out again with a spin:). Both stamp sets used are made by THE STAMPS OF LIFE called PIGGYBANK2STAMP and SPINNER2STAMP.  I think it turned out really cute!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope your weekend was a wonderful as mine.  Happy Stamping!


Bouquet of Well Wishes

Hello!  I hope you’re having a great Sunday!  Here in New England the weather is just beautiful:). On a scale from 1-10, it would easily be a ten!  I wish every day could be just like a today.  

I made a couple cards the other day, but never got around to posting them for one reason or another.  This first one was lots of fun to make. All the stamps and dies I used are made by THE STAMPS OF LIFE. I started by using the BASKET DIE and then filled it by die cutting felt with the SIZZIX TRIPLIT FLOWER dies.  I layered various sizes and added a brad in the middle for more color.  So much fun!  The daisies that you see are embellishments that can be purchased at THE STAMPS OF LIFE all premade.  The banner is a die from CHALKSAYINGS2STAMP and the sentiment inside it is from UMBRELLA2STAMP.  Lastly the tag and sentiment is from SIZZIX TAGS AND WORDS.  I love the bright colors on this card and think it would definitely brighten someone’s day:) 

This next one is a fun one to kick off Memorial Day and summer, which is why I chose a patriotic theme.  All of the stamps and dies can be found over at THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  I used the BASIC STEP-UP CARD, FLIPFLOP2STAMP and UMBRELLA2STAMP. The Designer Paper is called AMERICANA BY COLORBOK.  Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Stamping!  




Hello!  I hope you’re having a great start to this Memorial Day weekend!  Today I have a fun and quick card to share with you.  Everything I used is made by THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  The cute little bee stamp that I made my background with is from a set called SIZZIX WINDOWS FRAMELITS W/STAMPS.  I love how the stamps come with the matching dies, which is how I was able to make the 3D bee buzzing around the hello. Isn’t he cute? The hello die is from the BICYCLE2STAMP SET and the flowers were made using the SIZZIX TRIPLIT FLOWER SET.  This card reminds me of summer which is right around the corner!  I can’t wait, it’s my favorite season!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by today:)  Happy Stamping! 


Thanks so Much

Hello!  Today as I look around my craft room, I’m surrounded by a mess!  Usually I try to clean up after each day or night of card making, but hmmmm…. Slacking big time this last week!  I started to clean and hidden under some piles of paper these stamp sets surfaced…. Again.  So…. I decided to make another card before I put them back on the shelf.

The stamp sets /dies I used are made by THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  I needed some thank you cards so decided to make a set of these.  The sets I used are chalksayings2stamp for the thanks so much banner, boots4rain and Sizzix windows Framelits with stamps for the butterfly and some of the flowers.  A few of the flowers were made by some small punches.  This was a fun card to make, but now I need to focus, focus and clean this disaster area! Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Happy Stamping! 


Get Well Soon

Today I’m sharing a fun Get Well Soon card.   Actually, probably not so fun if you’re the recipient of it, but I think it would definitely cheer up the person! All of the dies and stamps I used to create this card are from THE STAMPS OF LIFE.  The actual card itself is called FRIENDS FOREVER STEP-UP CARD BY SIZZIX/STEPHANIE BARNARD.  It’s funny because I went back and forth on whether to purchase this or not… So glad I did, I LOVE it:). The coordinating stamps and dies I used are umbrella4you, boots4rain and faces4stamps.  If you’re not familiar with these sets, you should check them out over at THE STAMPS OF LIFE!  The designer paper I used is from MY MIND’S EYE, another favorite of mine. Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!  I hope you have a great weekend:) Happy Stamping! 

   One more card using my club set called piggybank2 stamp:). The sentiment is from candles4birthday, embossing folder by Paper Studio, the lacy circle by Spell binder.  Isn’t he/she cute?!
