Spring Time & Easter- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends!  March 7th today, which means new releases at The Stamps of Life AND spring time is right around the corner!  However…. where I live we’re having 12 inches of snow today (insert HUGE SIGH)…. the only positive is that it doesn’t last long this time of year, thank goodness!

There are THREE new spring time releases today!

Patterns4butterfly is the first one I’ll share. It’s a partner set with this month’s Club Set butterfly2stamp  Love the fun patterns in this set to add some “happy” to your butterflies!


In addition to butterfly2stamp and patterns4butterfly I used: Sizzix Triplits, Hello Sunshine, Grid3 Circle Dies, TSOL Scallop Rectangle Dies & TSOL papers & ink.

Next up, is Squirrel4Easter with coordinating dies:

How cute is this little guy trying to pretend he’s the Easter bunny?!


For the base of my card, I used Sizzix Square Mini Stand-Up (which also happens to be a sale item) and TSOL papers, ink and embellishments. I colored him in using colored pencils.


And one more… I love how you can cut his hands out with the die so he can hold the eggs or whatever you may decide you want him to hold:)

Lastly,  Sheeppudgie13 .  This is set #13 in the series of Pudgie Collection that Stephanie has released.  It’s definitely one of my favorite pudgies to date!


I paired my Pudgie with TSOL Stitched Rectangle Dies and Sizzix Circles, Scallop Circle Set and TSOL Stitched Ovals for the front of my card along with TSOL papers and ink.

And one last card…


I simply stamped my card front with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder….

And for the inside I used Sizzix You are Awesome 3-D Drop-in Sentiments


I love the surprise of a “drop-in” die on the inside of cards!

Thanks for stopping by today!  All supplies I used on my cards today can be found here at The Stamps of Life. I hope you have a wonderful day!  I truly appreciate all of your visits, questions and comments.  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!


Butterflies! Butterfly2Stamp, Sayings4Butterfly & Solids4Butterfly- The Stamps of Life

Hello friends!  March 1st! A new month which brings us closer to spring AND a new Club Set released today, from The Stamps of Life!

Butterflies are the theme of this month’s stamp and die set!  Butterfly2stamp is such a cute set, along with its partner sets sayings4butterfly and solids4butterfly

I love them ALL!

I have some fun samples to share with you today…  Everything I used to make my cards (stamps, dies, inks and papers) was designed by Stephanie, and can be found HERE at The Stamps of Life!


I used the Sizzix Flower Fold-it Die as my card base and colored in my butterfly using TSOL markers.


On the inside of my card I wanted to add some sunshine, so I used Hot Air Balloon Club Die Set to cut out “sunshine” and added it around the border of my flower.

Next, I made a triple layer card:


For my first layer, I used Sizzix Mini Card, Thanks Sentiment Set  then stamped my butterflies with solids4butterfly.  I love these solids! I’m not the type of person who loves coloring, I’d much rather stamp color on to my images!


I used TSOL Scalloped Rectangles on my next layer adding on to it with a heart and more butterflies…


And for my last layer…. a sneak peek at a die that will be coming soon!


I just LOVE this sentiment from sayings4butterfly…. The added flowers on the bottom of my card are from scarecrow2stamp.  The glittery butterflies look much prettier and sparkle brighter in real life… the photo doesn’t do them justice…..


And the inside….

Because I love this sentiment so much, I made another similar card…


This time, I used Sizzix Card, Scallop w/Thanks for my card base and used Sizzix Circles, Scallop Framelits Die Set to add my butterflies to.

Check out some more fun samples HERE in the Gallery!

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


Shadow Box Die Set & File Tabs Dies- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I have some exciting new things to share with you from The Stamps of Life!

I have been wanting a Shadow Box die for the longest time….  I’ve made my own in the past, but all the cutting, measuring and trying to fit it into an A2 sized envelope (my favorite size to make) TOO MUCH WORK! When this Shadow Box die arrived in my mailbox, I squealed for joy!  When I made this card with it, I was even happier, it’s soooo easy to make!

Watch Stephanie’s video here to see for yourself just how easy it is!

This is what the Shadow Box Die looks like.

Shadow Box Die Set

This is the card I created:


You get to decide the shape of your opening to your shadow box… I decided I wanted mine to be a circular shape.  These are the additional stamps/dies I used all from TSOL. Sizzix Dotted Square, TSOL Circle Dies, TSOL Stitched Oval Dies, sailboat2stamp (for the grass), bunypudgie12, hippo2stamp (for the flower) and chocolatebunny2stamp for the sentiment.

Next up, is the File Tabs Dies….

They look like this

File Tabs Dies

These can be used for planners, organizing or cards.  I made cards using them.


In addition to the file tab die I used Sizzix Tags Stamps and dies to stamp For You, faces4stamps stamp set that I stamped on to TSOL Circle Dies and Sizzix Happy Day 3-D Pop-Up.


For this card, I wanted it to look like a clip board using the circle shaped file die. In addition I used list2write stamp set and  bicycle2stamp stamp/die set.

Everything I used to make my cards can be found at The Stamps of Life.

I hope you have a wonderful day!  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!!!


Mini Bow Die & Wonder Card Kit- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I have some brand new things from The Stamps of Life to share with you today.

Mini Bow Die Set

Mini Bow Die Set

It’s adorable, sweet and dainty!  And…. simple to assemble!  It has a twin that was released back in the fall, it’s just bigger and coordinates nicely with this one. Check it out HERE

Here are a couple of cards I made using the Mini Bow Die Set:


In addition to the Bow Die, I used Sizzix Dotted Rectangles and TSOL Washi Tape.


This time I paired the Mini Bow Die with bicycle2stamp stamp/die set and the YAY die is from the January 2018 Card Kit called Yay Collection.

I love this month’s Card Kit called called “Wonder.”  It pairs so beautifully with this month’s Club Set sailboat2stamp!

Check out Stephanie’s video HERE to see everything included in the Card Kit, “Wonder!”

I made 2 different cards. One features just what was included in the Card Kit, and the other is paired with sailboat2stamp dies.


To make this card I used the contents in the Card Kit paired with TSOL Stitched Circles and “W” Circle Dies.  It was so fast and easy to make!


No stamping involved here, all die cuts.  In addition to the Card Kit contents I used TSOL Stitched Rectangles and the sailboat2stamp dies, along with TSOL glitter paper. I LOVE the “Wonder” word die!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments.  Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!!!!



NEW RELEASES! Sayings4Sailboats, Patterns4Sailboats & Bunny Pudgie

Hello everyone!  It’s a release day at The Stamps of Life  and I have some super cute stamp sets to share with you today!

There are 2 new partner sets to go with this month’s Club Set sailboat2stamp with dies. If you’re not a Die Hard Club Member, then the dies will be available to you on February 20th:)


sayings4sailboats has a great collection of sentiments to add on to sailboat2stamp…..


I love this sentiment…  At the time that I made this card I never realized how fitting this sentiment and card is for me, personally!   I recently broke my right arm, which is my dominant side and could never have made it through the surgery and the continuation of challenges without my family and friends.I need to duplicate a bunch of these!  For my card base, I used Sizzix Triple Square Flip-its Card Set.


patterns4sailboats has some really cute patterns, especially if you’re not someone who likes to color, like ME!


I love polka dots and chevron! There are so many fun mix and match patterns you can do, and two more great sentiments!  I used the Sizzix Mini Square Stand-Up for my card base to create this card.


Bunny Pudgie is #12 in Stephanie’s series of Pudgies.  This is one of my favorites, but I’m partial to bunnies:)


When I first saw these bunnies I thought of the “Peeps” marshmallow bunnies that come out at Easter time, which is why I made them pink and blue… but this isn’t an Easter card.

I made it a Get Well card.


For the inside I used Sizzix Get Well 3-D Drop-in.


And I made this version using the Sizzix Scalloped Circle Stand-Ups Card Die Set.

All of the papers, inks and embellishments used today are by TSOL.

I hope you have a wonderful day!  It’s snowing like crazy today where I live, a great day to stay inside and make cards!

Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!!!!!!


Sailboat2Stamp, Alphabet Dies & Easter Statement Set

Goodbye, January, Hello, February!  Spring is getting closer and closer which makes me a happy girl!  The first of the month means new releases from The Stamps of Life and THREE of them are FLASH SALE items!!!!

First up, is sailboat2stamp the new Club Set with coordinating dies if you’re a Die Hard Club Member.  If not, you have to wait until February 20th to be able to order the matching die set.

I know….I ALWAYS say this, BUT I’m in LOVE with this set. It’s so cute!!!!


In addition to sailboat2stamp with dies, I also used TSOL Stitched Circle Dies and Hot Air Balloon Club Set to die cut my sun.


 I used the Sizzix Box Card Set for my base, and simply added all the other components from sailboat2stamp to complete my box card.

Now for the FLASH SALE items!  Remember… During a Flash Sale the item will be 25% OFF (plus an additional 15% off for Club Members!) for the first 24 hours it is on the site and/or until it sells out, whichever comes first. Then it permanently goes back to the regular price.

First, I’ll share 3.5 Inch Lowercase Alphabet Dies:

I made this “fun” birthday card:)


I love that there is a shadow die for each letter!

And now the 3.5 Inch Uppercase Alphabet Dies: 


I decided I wanted to alter a notebook using the uppercase dies.  This would make a great gift for a coworker, or anyone!  I used TSOL Small Bow Die in the left hand corner and wrapped my pen with TSOL Washi Tape.

Easter Statement Set is the last Flash Sale item I have to share with you today.  I have to say, I love Stephanie’s series of “Statement Sets” because they’re all so versatile.


This was simple to make… I just added the statement on to TSOL patterned paper and stamped “Blessings” on to TSOL Oval Dies.

Lastly, I have this one to share…


I paired the Statement Set with chocolatebunny2stamp, another favorite stamp set of mine by TSOL:)

For all of my cards, I used the The Stamps of Life papers, inks and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I wish you a wonderful day!  I truly appreciate ALL visit, questions and comments.  Until the next time…. Happy Stamping!
