Stand-Up and Flip-It Card for fall

Hello!  Well, the weekend is almost over, but it was a great one for me and hopefully for you too!  In between visiting and going to fairs I managed to stamp a few fall cards, and even some more Christmas cards that I’ll share at a later date.  This week’s posts will be all about autumn and enjoying the beautiful gifts of nature!

For my first card I used the Royal Stand-Up Card Die by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard along with birthday4cookie&treats4cookie my favorite little dog stamp!  I also used a retired Stampin’Up pumpkin stamp, and I apologize because I have no idea what set it came from many years ago!


Isn’t she cute?  I think Cookie is just the cutest and I use this stamp set quite often:)

My next card is a flip-it card, fun and interactive!  It’s A2 in size and called Large Circle #4 Flip-Its by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard.  This card took literally 5 minutes to make from start to clean-up… that’s how simple it is because all the measuring is done for you!


The cute little owl is a punch from Martha Stewart.  I created the branch by borrowing the snowman’s arm from snowman2stamp.( I know…but it worked!) Then I die cut “hi,” also from The Stamps of Life and added some wooden stars and jute.

You can find all of the dies I used and “Cookie” over at

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today!  I truly appreciate your visits, questions and comments!  Stop by again soon because more fall cards are on the way:)  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!


Heart Step-Up Miss You Card

Hello!  Hope you’re having a great start to the weekend.  Here in New England there is definitely the feel of autumn in the air!  Today I am sharing a card that I made for a customer who requested a “miss you” card.  I’ve had this Heart Step-Up Card Die by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard for a while, but it’s my first time using it.  I love step-up cards and had to add this one to my collection!


I wanted this card to have a fallish color scheme, but still look feminine.  I paired my card with two other die sets, Triplits Die Hello-Sunshine and Mini Flower Dies.  All of the dies I used today can be found over at

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!  I truly appreciate your visits, questions and comments.  Be sure to check back over the next few days, because I have some autumn themed cards to share:)  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

“Bee” Thankful

Hello!  I’m here to share a card today that has absolutely no stamping.  I treated myself to this cute Triplit Bee Set by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard today.  It’s been on my wishlist for a while, and Michael’s was having a great sale, so I treated myself!  I also used The Lovely Drop-Ins paired with Mini Flower Dies all which can be found at The Stamps of Life.  I think it’s pretty cute!

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

A Haunting We Will Go

Hello!  It’s been a long week of work…TGIF!!!  Today I’m sharing a Halloween card using my fireplace2stamp stamp/die set from The Stamps of Life.  My last few posts have been of cards using this set, can you tell how much I love it?  So many possibilities!  Here’s a fun Happy Halloween version:)


Isn’t this fun?  My son’s favorite holiday is Halloween, so he will be the recipient of this card.  It was fast and easy to put together. I used Sizzix XL Die- card, Square Stand-Ups for the base,  banners4fall to create the banner and the “boo”sentiment, all from TSOL.  I added some stickers, twine, google eyes and was done!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!  I love hearing from you, so feel free to leave a question or a comment.  Until the next time, Happy Stamping!

Warm Autumn Wishes

Hello!  Yesterday I shared two different Christmas versions of fireplace2stamp made by The Stamps of Life.  I’m back today to share an autumn themed version using this awesome stamp and die set.  The ideas and different cards you can make with this set are endless, it’s so versatile!  I said it yesterday, but I’ll say it again…this is my new fave and I’m in love:)


This is what I came up with today!  It’s very “fallish” and could easily be sent as a Thanksgiving card.  The leaves are metallic confetti, the pumpkin is from a retired Stampin’Up set called Window on the World.  Everything else is from TSOL and can be found at their site.  The birds were die cut using birdcage2stamp, the banner was stamped and cut using chalksayings2stamp and the sentiment is from snowman2stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate your visits and comments!  If you like this card, and have not seen the Christmas version of this fireplace stamp set, check out my previous post.  You too will fall in love!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and until the next time… Happy Stamping!

Fireplace Christmas Cards

Hello!  Another weekend has arrived and I couldn’t be happier!  Sometimes those short weeks are the longest.  Today I’m here to share two cards that I made using the new Stamps of Life fireplace2stamp (with coordinating dies) set. The best part is I won this stamp set for free!!!  I entered some of my cards into TSOL gallery from the July club set, and won! I got to choose any set that I wanted, and when I saw this new one, I had to have it.  I absolutely love it, and plan to make some fall cards with it too, so be sure to check back soon!


For my first card, I used stocking2stamp which is the coordinating set of the fireplace2stamp to die cut the trees and candy canes. I love the letters that came with it, there are more included in the set too that spell NOEL, LOVE and JOY.


Once again I used stocking2stamp for my trees on the mantel and the candy canes.  I used a candle die from TSOL and a Martha Stewart punch to create my greenery.

I had so much fun making these cards today and love how they turned out.  As I said, I have some great ideas for fall versions using the fireplace set too, so be sure to come back soon.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit today,   I really do appreciate your visits and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

More Christmas Stocking Cards

Hello!  My last post was all about my Stamps of Life Die Hard Club set called stockings4Christmas.  I’m back today to share even more cards I made.   I’m feeling so good to have a head start on my Christmas cards:)  Normally, I’m scrambling mid December, but I won’t be this year…I’ve been making multiples of each design.  Now if only I could manage to get my shopping done early!  Now that would be a true miracle, but I’ll save that for another day…


For my first card, I used the Sizzix Window Die/Stamp set to create my window.  Next I die cut the stockings, tree, candy canes, star and heart and added them to the window.  The Christmas lights are from a punch I recently found at The Dollar Tree.  I stamped “JOY” and was done.  Pretty simple and easy to mass produce!


I absolutely love this next card, but feel the photograph does not do it justice.  It’s must prettier in real life, but I decided to share it anyways.  To create this card I used Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard Lovely Drop-Ins to make the heart base.  I die cut the stocking with velvet and trimmed it with the antique like lace. Then,  I attached the sparkly tree to it by using a gem stone brad.  Lastly, I die cut the silver stars and added them to the corners. I love the shimmer and sparkle mixed with the velvet and lace.


For my last card I used Scalloped Edge Drop-Ins by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard.  This is one of my favorite drop in dies that I use quite often.  I love the scalloped edges!  This card took no time at all, I just die cut all the pieces and assembled it. I think it’s pretty festive!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit. I truly appreciate your visits, questions and comments! Until the next time, Happy Stamping!
