Rectangle Dies and Scalloped Rectangles- The Stamps of Life

You can never have enough rectangular dies in my opinion!  Today, Stephanie is releasing two new sets that coordinate beautifully together!  Rectangle Dies and Scalloped Rectangles!  And… The Scalloped Rectangles are a FLASH SALE ITEM!

Each has 7 dies in the set!

Here are some samples I made:

I used Best Wishes Die Set as my focal point and finished it off with a flower from Sizzix Flower Layers and Framelits Die Set.

For this card I used hippo2stamp. I love this hippo set, I think it’s so cute!

Aren’t these Scalloped Dies so pretty?!  I LOVE THEM!

Here’s an easy peasy card,  just using the dies and some TSOL embellishments…..

And one more…

Another favorite stamp and die set of mine… flipflops2stamp with dies and Life’s a Beach Die Set.

Hurry on over to The Stamps of Life and check it out!

All papers, dies and inks I used today can be found at TSOL:)

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


Grateful Collection Card Kit-The Stamps of Life

A couple days ago, over at The Stamps of Life,  Stephanie released this month’s August Card Kit. It’s called the “Grateful Collection” and it comes in a box filled with so many awesome goodies!

This is what the kit looks like:

Card Kit of the Month

I love how everything in the kit coordinates together so beautifully:)

To get an even better look at what’s included in the kit, you can watch Stephanie’s video here

I had lots of fun making the cards I’m sharing today!  I paired the cards I made with other TSOL/Sizzix products, but you could just use the Card Kit all by itself to make several cards.  There are several card  ideas in the Gallery that uses JUST the Card Kit.

I made this Box Card for a good friend’s birthday.  She loved it!

I used the following stamps and dies to make this Box Card: TSOL Exclusive Box Card Die Set, Sizzix Jar Stamps& Dies, Balloons2Cut Stamp/Die Set, Stamps4Cupcaketriplit w/Dies, Sizzix Triplits Party Hats and Sizzix Star Dies.

I love Flip-Cards and this was super fast and easy to make!  I used Sizzix Triple Circle Flip-its Card Set and Sizzix Scalloped Circle Stand-Ups Card Die Set,  for the arrows.

Another card,  using the same stamped sentiment, but a totally different look.  To make this card I used the following additional items: Scream4Icecream Stamp Set, Icecream Dies 1, Sizzix Dotted Oval, Sizzix Dotted Rectangles and Sizzix Heart Dies.

No stamping involved here, all die cutting.  I used the Grateful Die included in the Card Kit along with Sizzix Half A-2 and Sizzix Half Card Panels.

Same die… different look.  In addition I used: Sizzix Mini Square Stand-Up for the flowers in the upper left hand corner and Sizzix Flower Layers & Framelits Die Set along with Sizzix Tags & Words Stamps & Dies.

I used the recently released Sizzix Pumpkin Fold-it to make this card, along with Sizzix Happy Thanksgiving 3-D Drop-ins Sentiments for the added leaves and acorn .

All products I used to make these cards can be found at The Stamps of Life.

Sizzix Dotted Square

I made these cards using the Dotted Squares:

I love these  bee4me and hives4bees stamps and dies! I think they’re soooo cute!!!

Patterns4Donuts & Sayings4Donuts along with Pudgie Owl

Hi everyone!  There’s some fun, new releases from The Stamps of Life today!  Patterns4Donuts and Sayings4Donuts coordinate with this month’s Club Set, Donuts2Stamp.


To me, these are a “must have” if you own, or plan on getting Donut2Stamp!

I added a little candle using a Sizzix candle die along with Sizzix Flower Layers & Leaf Framelits Die for my corner flowers, and the sentiment from sayings4donuts.

I love these fun patterns!  In addition to the donut sets, I used Sizzix Circles, Scallop Framelits Die Set, Sizzix Circles, Dotted Framelits Die Set, tea4two stamp/die set and coffee4twostamp set

This is the Owl Pudgie stamp set.  It is the 7th pudgie released in Stephanie’s pudgie animal series of stamp and dies that are released every month.


Cute! Cute! Cute!

Very little stamping here… super quick and easy!

In addition to my owl set, I also used Sizzix Dotted Ovals and  Sizzix Happy Thanksgiving 3-D Drop-ins to die cut my leaves.

In addition I used  TSOL Stitched Rectangle Dies and Stitched Circle Dies along with Sizzix Star Dies.

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

*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!
