Sizzix Cake Fold-its & 3-D Drop-ins/Pop-Ups- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start. It’s release today at The Stamps of Life and TWO new amazing dies have been released! Look how cute!

First up, is Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Cake Fold-its. Personally, I love the Fold-its dies, I find that they are all so versatile!

Here’s a fun birthday card I made… In addition to the die set I die cut Guava felt using the Mini Bow Die Set and TSOL Mini Flower Dies . The best part… it’s an A2 sized card and fits perfectly into an A2 sized envelope!

This time, I created a wedding card… so easy! In addition to the die set I also used a heart die and bird dies. The banner was made using happy4bannersTWO. I used Flower Power embossing folder and embellished with these purple flowers that I found in my stash…. Again, super easy and it makes a one of a kind wedding card!

The next Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard die is called Sizzix Generic 3-D pop-ups. This adds an element of surprise inside your card for the recipient and is so easy and fun!

Pop out puppies! In addition to the drop-in die, I used Birthday4cookie, Friends4cookie and Treats4cookie. I die cut my sun using Sizzix Triplits, Hello Sunshine.

This is my card front using a SOL sentiment, Scalloped Rectangle Dies and ONLY Stitched Rectangle Dies. The heart die was released a while back and was included in the Sizzix Sidekick.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend! Until the next time… Happy stamping!

Foxes2Stamp, Sizzix House Fold-its & Sizzix Cupcake Flip-its Insert- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  Can you believe it, July 1st?! It’s that time for some NEW Stamps of Life releases and they’re awesome!  I think you’ll agree with me when you see these new stamps and dies:)

First up, is the new Club Set of the month, foxes2stamp with coordinating dies. If you’re a club member, these stamps are on their way to your house, if not, you can order the stamps, but have to wait until July 20th to be able to purchase the coordinating dies.

Here are some samples I made:


In addition the foxes2stamp, I also used sizzix bird and tree stamp/die set, Sizzix, Hello Sunshine Triplits, and border dies.


And a peek at the inside…. I love TSOL papers, you can ALWAYS find the perfect patterned paper to coordinate with the stamp sets!


This was quick and easy!  I used scalloped squares to layer my card and blended sky ink for my clouds and green apple for the grass. I love the polka dotted patterned papers and the flowers are from a previous card kit.  How cute are these foxes?!

Here’s the next new release!

Sizzix House Fold-its designed by Stephanie is  soooo much fun and cute! This house die can be used for so many different occasions… I have so many ideas swirling around in my head, but have two to share with you today.  There will be more to come:)


I wanted to make a happy and summery card.  Patterned paper, paper houses are fun and happy, right?! Say that 3 times fast;) I added Cookie outside the house, added a swing to the tree using birdcage club die set , used border dies for grass and finished it off with a heart on the roof.


And a wintery version… Once again I used the border dies for the look of snow, I also used a White Wink of Stella pen and glitter to add snow in other places on my house.  The icicles are from Department 56… my sister was cleaning a closet and passed these on to me, I gladly took them off of her hands:) The small trees are from stocking dies  and my sentiment is from snowman2build. Lastly, the added bird is from birdcage club die set.

One last release…  Sizzix Cupcake Flip-its Insert   *This is an ADD ON set* to Sizzix Flip-its Flower Card Base


I added “Life is Sweet” to my panel which is from Sizzix Border Word Sets. Isn’t that cupcake cute?

Thanks for stopping by today.  I wish you a wonderful day!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!


Celebrate Fourth of July- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays!  I have so many happy childhood memories celebrating,  and the tradition continues… Every year my husband and I  host a barbecue for my family that is filled with lots of eating, fishing and swimming… and then at night we enjoy all the fireworks being set off around the lake we live on.  Fun times!  And of course, I appreciate living in a free country!

I have an easy patriotic card to share with you…. not much stamping involved, just die cutting!


To make my card I used Sizzix Star Fold-its to layer my stars. The flag is on a toothpick and can be found at a party store, or in a grocery store in the baking section. I used ONLY Stitched Rectangles Dies as layering. The sentiment and “fireworks” are from fireworks4squirrel with dies.  I die cut “Celebrate” using Celebrate Word Dies and lastly, I used a banner die included in the  the December 2017 Card Kit XOXO Collection. All papers and inks can be found at TSOL:)


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!

This month’s Club Set shells2stamp has coordinating dies (Available June 20th) and previously released, solids4shells and now NEW today is sayings4shells… which has awesome sentiments and brings so much more versatility to this stamp/die set.

The base of my card is the Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard Stand Up Circle Die Set paired with shells2stamp, sayings4shells, faces4stamps and this cute heart die that is included in the Sizzix Sidekick Starter Kit.


To make this card, I used sayings4shells paired with shells2stamp and solids4shells.

I’m so excited about mermaid2stamp with coordinating dies!  Total cuteness!  It   pairs so well with shells2stamp or can be used by itself. So much fun for the summer!


I think these mermaids are so cute…. and I couldn’t resisit adding a couple of shells to my card….
