Be a Butterfly…

Hello everyone!  I made this card earlier in the week, but just getting around to posting it.  Last week I went to the Creating Keepsakes Convention and bought lots of fun new stamps and dies!  Ahhh… a stamper’s paradise for sure!

My favorite booth was The Stamps of Life.  I bought this stamp set because first of all, I LOVE the sentiment and a big bonus…I already owned the dies that go with it.  The set is called Triplit Butterfly & triplitbutterfly2stamp  It can be found here at TSOL.

I also entered this card into a challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  It was Monday’s Clean and Simple Challenge “Let the background talk”.  I chose to use watercolors for my background.  The challenge is here

Here’s my card I made.IMG_1954 (1)

I have to say, the sentiment on my card is one of my all time favorite quotes!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments!  Be sure to stop back soon.  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!

A House Without A Dog…

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with a quick share.  This morning I was talking to a friend who REALLY, REALLY wants to get a dog.  She lost her furry family member a few months back and is trying to convince her husband to let her get a cute little Maltese puppy.  I thought I would try to influence him by sending him this card;)  Time will tell if it works, but it’s worth a try!

All of the stamps and dies I used are by  The Stamps of Life

I used the following products to create this card: Sizzix/SB Kind Sentiments Step-Ups Card Set, House4Cookie, Birthday4Cookie, Treats4Cookie, Happymail2stamp stamps & dies.

Keep your fingers crossed that it works for her!

Hap’bee’ Birthday

Hello!  Hope your weekend is off to a spectacular start! Today I’m here to share a fun birthday card for you using bee4me by The Stamps of Life.

Those of you who follow me know that I’m a huge fan of TSOL.  Well, yesterday I got to meet Stephanie and her husband Ken at a Creating Keepsakes Convention!  I can tell you that Stephanie is as genuine as they come and Ken is just as awesome!

Needless to say, I spent lots of time and money in TSOL booth… It was definitely a favorite of mine.  The card I’m sharing with you today uses some of the goodies I picked up.  The bee set is one that I have had my eye on for quite some time and the basket die is a new item out.  You can find the stamp set here and the basket die here.

This was super quick and easy to make.  The inside sentiment says Hap’bee’ Birthday:)  The photograph of the card doesn’t really show it, but I used pop dots to give the bee some dimension.

5×7 Square Flip-Its Kindness Card

Hello!  I’m here to share a card that went together very quickly with no stamping involved, all die cuts.  For the base of my card I used the new 5×7 Square Flip-Its Card Set by Sizzix/SB.  Mine was a gift, but you can find it here over at The Stamps of Life.

The sentiment I used on the front of the card is one of the dies in the Kind Sentiments Step-Ups Card Set by Sizzix/SB. You can find it here.

I left the flip side blank so I could easily write my message.  There’s so much more room to write in this larger size:)

IMG_3065Very simple, but I think pretty!  I love how all of the dies are so versatile!

In the Doghouse

Hello!  I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend so far.  Here in New England it is absolutely gorgeous out!  The best part… I’m on vacation this week:)  Can you hear my cheers?!

Last week I took advantage of a “Flash Sale” that took place over at The Stamps of Life.  I got these adorable stamps and dies for half the price!  The set is called house4cookie with Doghouse dies .  I already own birthday4cookie and treats4cookie so it was a great addition to my collection!

First up is the doghouse.  I’m happy to say I can put this card away for another day… I know of no one in the “doghouse” at the moment!  The big question is: Will I remember where it is when I need it?

Next up is a Step-Up card.  To make this card I used Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard Kind Sentiments Step-Ups Card Die Set found here. This is a new to me die set that I love!

IMG_3057Last up is  friend card.  I have to say, I think Cookie looks so cute tied to the fire hydrant!

More “Cherry”-Ful Cards

Hello everyone!  I’m back today to share a few more cards I made with my April Club Set from The Stamps of Life.  Previously, I posted a couple, and over the weekend added a few more to my collection.  The stamp and die set is called cherries2stamp and can be found here  along with some of the other products I used.

The first card I’m sharing is a happy one, that could be used for any happy occasion.  I added some smiles on the cherries from faces4stampsIMG_1939

The”happy” patterned paper and stitched rectangle die can also be found be found over at TSOL  The oval dies are made by Spellbinders.

My next card uses Sizzix/SB Basic Step-Up Card Die Set.  This was so simple to make! Nope, absolutely no stamping…. All die cuts.   I used the cherry bowl die from my club set, along with a “hello” die from TSOL.

I found a few flower stickers in my stash, added some ribbon and had a bright and cheerful card:)

Last up is another bright card.  I love bright and vibrant colors! I did a little watercoloring for my background on this card.  Once again, I combined a couple sets from TSOL. Along with cherries2stamp, the”Hello” was a free stamp we received in our Club Set.  Every couple of months we get a nice little surprise included in our set!  The cupcake is from a Flip-Its Card Die Set. I try to use all my stamps & dies together to justify my “addiction” LOL! 😉

TSOL is coming to a CKC in my area in less than 2 weeks… I’m in trouble!  It just so happens to be on my school break again this year:)  It will definitely be a highlight of my vacation!  A stamper’s heaven:)

A Bowl of Cherries

Hello everyone!  Today, I’m sharing my new April club set from The Stamps of Life.  It’s called cherries2stamp and it comes with some adorable stamps and dies!  I came home from work today and they were waiting for me in my mailbox:)  Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on us here in New England… It’s snowing out:(  HUGE DISLIKE!!!!  To keep my mind off of that white stuff falling from the sky, I decided to play with my new stamps.

You can find all stamps and dies I used HERE at The Stamps of Life.

I’m entering my first card into a challenge over at Dragonfly Journeys.  The Challenge is to use a tag in anyway.  Easy peasy and fun!  You can find the challenge here

This is what I came up with!

IMG_1934

The inside sentiment says: To call You My Friend!

I paired cherries2stamp with Sizzix/SB Mini Flower Dies, Sizzix/SB Tags & Words and Stitched Rectangle Dies

Next up, is a different version using a different sentiment that comes in the set.IMG_1935

I added some frowns on the cherries, using faces4stamps and used a fruity embossing folder by Provo Craft.  This card states exactly how I feel about our spring snowstorm today!
