Numbers4Cake Dies & Grid Circle Dies- The Stamps of Life

Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  January 20th already…. and that means new releases, today, at The Stamps of Life!

One of the great releases today….

numbers4cake Dies

numbers4cake Dies is a set of 20 dies designed to coordinate with numbers4cakestamp set.   Numbers4Cake is an older stamp set, but it sure is great now having the candle dies to die cut the candles!

Here are a couple of samples I made:


In addition to numbers4cake dies, I also used numbers4cake stamp set, Sizzix Dotted Rectangle Dies, monsters4celebrations die set, spinner2stamp stamp & die set (party hat) and cake2stamp for my sentiment.


I paired the following with numbers4cake stamp & die set: Sizzix Drop-in Card Front with Script Dies, Sizzix 5×7 Circle Flip-its Card Set for my cupcakes and Sizzix star dies.

Grid3Circle Dies  is a great set of 6 dies to make fast and easy cards!

Grid3 Circle Dies

On the samples I’m sharing today, there is NO STAMPING involved, just die cutting, which made for some fast and easy card making!


I chose to use the dies vertical for my first card.  As I said, all die cuts… I paired this die set with Sizzix Half A2 Card Dies for my added heart and flower.


Same exact die sets on this card, but used the dies horizntally this time.

I hope I inspired you to make some cards of your own this weekend!  All papers, stamps, inks and dies I used today can be found at The Stamps of Life.

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


FLASH SALE TODAY- W Circle Dies Set & Sizzix Get Well Soon Stamps and Dies- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I hope all is well with you and you had a great weekend! This past week is one I’d like to have a “do over” on, if I could.  A week ago today, I had surgery on my arm.  Long story…. but I broke it in 4 different places and it’s being held together with pins and a plate.  The worst part is that it’s my right arm, and I’m right handed.  It’s challenging, but I’m learning to function with only my left hand and arm for a while and I’m doing it! As I told my family and friends, the worst is behind me, I’ll get there!

The Stamps of Life has TWO great Flash Sales happening today!

The first is this “W” Circle Dies Set.

W Circle Dies Set

It has intricate w’s going around the borders of the circles…really pretty!  They work great as plates, too, to put different stamped foods on!

Here are a few cards I made:


I thought it would be fun to make a circular card! I paired the circle dies with the Sizzix Flower Fold-it and TSOL Small Bow Dies.


In a previous post, I posted this card already. These adorable bacon and egg stamps and dies are this month’s Club Set!  In case you missed it, look how great these dies work as a plate!  To make this card, I used the following stamps and dies: TSOL W circle Dies Set, TSOL Stitched Rectangle Dies, BaconandEggs2stamp w/dies and Saltshaker2stamp w/ dies.


And one more very simple card, just layering the circles…

Next up, is Sizzix Get Well Soon Stamps and Dies

Sizzix Get Well Soon Stamps & Dies

The Stamps of Life released a Club Set almost identical to this years ago.  No surprise, it’s a very popular set to this day, so Stephanie designed one for Sizzix.  PLEASE NOTE: This stamp and die set is smaller than TSOL exclusive bandage2stamp set.

Here are some cards I made:


I made this shaker card using vellum to soften the look of my card.


I die cut my sentiment on the inside…


I used the Sizzix Half A2 Card Die Set as my card base on this card.


Here’s a very clean and simple card… I used TSOL Dotted Background Set, Sizzix Dotted Oval and tea4two stamp & die set.

All stamps, dies, papers and embellishments I used today, can be found here at The Stamps of Life.

I hope you have a wonderful day and are able to get some card making in!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments!  Until the next time… Happy Stamping!


Sayings4BaconandEggs, Pandapudgie and Sizzix Coffee Stamps & Dies

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re having a great start to January and the  weekend!  With temperatures below zero for days where I live, I’ve been pretty much housebound….

There’s some brand new releases at The Stamps of Life today!

sayings4baconandeggs, pandapudgie11 and “FLASH SALE” item Sizzix Coffee Stamps and Dies

Sayings4bacon and eggs coordinates with this month’s Club Set called baconandeggs2stamp with dies!


If you’re as old as I am, you may remember the song by Captain and Tennille, “Don’t go Breaking my Heart”…  Everytime I look at this card, it gets stuck in my head!  Anyway… the sentiment inside says: We need each other.

 Here’s another one I made using Sizzix/SB Large Circle Flip-its as my card base.  I LOVE interactive cards!


The “hello” die is from TSOL Notebook Edge and Hello Die Set.


Fun, right?!

Next up, is set number 11 in Stephanie’s Pudgie Collection called pandapudgie11.  It comes with 4 stamps and 4 dies!

He’s soooo cute!


Isn’t he just the cutest little panda?  I paired him with Sizzix It’s a Party Die Set.


I love this sentiment!  I used the Sizzix Border Word Set to make my flower border along with Sizzix Dotted Squares and Circle Dies to make this card.

img_0633 For the base of my card, I used Sizzix Lovely Drop-ins to make the heart filled cardfront.  I also used the heart die that is included in the new Sizzix Sidekick, it’s so pretty with the flowers on it.  You can’t really tell in my photo, but I used clear embossing powder on my pudgie and large heart to give it a patent leather look… shiny.

And the inside….


The “hello” die is included in the set.  I die cut it with black Fun Foam to make it “pop” off the card.

My last share is the Sizzix Coffee Stamps and Dies, which is a FLASH SALE item!  That means 25% OFF (Plus an ADDITIONAL 15% OFF for Club Members for the first 24 hours it’s on the site) or until it sells out, whichever comes first!

This stamp set was a Club Set quite some time ago, but Stephanie designed a smaller version of the set for Sizzix.  I like the original version, but it’s nice that this one is smaller to fit perfectly on Flip-its and Stand-up cards:)


Here, I used the Sizzix Mini Square Stand-Up Die Set for my card base.  Stephanie has a “surprise” sale happening right now, and this die set is one of them.  The whole set is only $19.99!  I thought it worked perfectly with this new coffee set.

And one last card for today….


TRUE. STORY.  I break OR brake for coffee!  I’m a coffee fanatic and can’t start my day without It!  If you’re familiar with, or own the TSOL coffee4two you will notice many similarities, it’s just smaller, which I like.

All stamps, dies, papers and inks I used can all be found at The Stamps of Life!

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

Bacon&Eggs2Stamp, Shine Statement Set & Sizzix Card Scallop with Thanks Sentiment Set- The Stamps of Life

Happy New Year and first of the month!  Wishing everyone love, happiness, good health and lots of card making for 2018!

I have THREE awesome new releases to share with you from The Stamps of Life, today!

I’ll start with this month’s Club Set bacon&eggs2stamp with dies. CUTE! CUTE! CUTE!  If you’re a Club Member, or a Die Hard Club Member, they’re on their way to your home:)

Here are some sample cards I made:


For the base of my card, I used TSOL Stitched Rectangle Dies and put my bacon and eggs on a “dish” circle die and paired it with saltshaker2stamp , a Club Set from a couple years ago.


Here’s a simple and fun card that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day or as an Anniversary card.


I paired this card with TSOL Scalloped Rectangle Dies and last month’s Club Set hotchocolate2stamp stamp and die set.


And one last sample using this set….

Next up,  is another new Statement Set added to Stephanie’s series of  different Statement Word Sets called Shine Statement Set.


I used Sizzix Star Flip-its for my card base, it pairs beautifully with this set!


And a peek at the flip side…


Here’s a CAS version of it paired with a heart die from last month’s Card Kit Club.


This card just makes me happy… The die and sentiment works perfectly with Sizzix/SB Hello Sunshine Triplits. I also used TSOL Grass Die and adorned it with some sparkly flowers.


And added this sentiment inside…

Lastly, is the new Sizzix/SB Sizzix Card Scallop w/Thanks Sentiment Set.

This die set is a new favorite of mine… I LOVE the intricate and dainty scallops that border the card frame!


This was fast and easy, but elegant at the same time.  After diecutting and assembling my pieces, I just added the Sizzix/SB Butterfly Triplit to the top corner. DONE.


A simple Thank You card…


Lastly, I made a Birthday Card.  I love how versatile this die set is.  I paired it with TSOL Shabby Chic Flower Dies and Sizzix/SB Triplits Cake Surprise.

Both Shine Statement Set and Sizzix Card, Scallop w/Thanks Sentiment Set are BOTH Flash Sale items today!  Hurry over to The Stamps of Life to get 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!

Squirrels2Love, Love Statement Set, Sizzix/SB Scallop Heart Fold-it – The Stamps of Life

Happy first day of December and Friday!!! Where did November go?  Whoosh… and just like that, it’s December!  The first day of the month is always an exciting time over at The Stamps of Life because it’s a release day and  I have three awesome new sets to share with you.

I’ll start with the CLUB SET… It’s called squirrels2love. If you’re a Club Member, they are on their way to your mailbox:)  These squirrels are just too cuuute!!!!!


How sweet and adorable is this little pair?  I love the for my friend die, included in the set, so versatile!


For this card, along with squirrels2love,  I also used Sizzix Dotted Oval, TSOL Grass Die, TSOL Small Bow Dies and made my sun using hot4balloons die set.


I love interactive cards!  For my card base,  I used Sizzix/SB Lively Flip-its Card Set and stamped my own patterned paper using the small flowers in the set.  I also paper pieced the bouquet of flowers so she could be holding them.


And the inside….


For my last card using this set, I paired squirrels2love with Sizzix/SB Kind Sentiments Step-Ups Card Set to make this.

Now for the FLASH SALE items!!!!!

Next up,  is Sizzix/SB Scallop Heart Fold-it:

I think this die set is just BEAUTIFUL!!!!!


I LOVE the details and scallop edges in this die set… so exquisite!  The “SO Special” die is NOT included in the set, it was part of the TSOL March 2017 Card Kit called So Special Collection.


This time, I just used the heart dies as part of my card front pairing it with happy4bannersTWO stamp/die set.


This is one of those times that the card looks much better in real life.  It did not photograph well, at all.  For the backing of my card, I used Clear Contact Paper and sprinkled it with Crystal Ultra Fine Transparent Glitter making it super sparkly and transparent.  The photo doesn’t show it at all… Sorry:(  After numerous attempts, I just couldn’t get a good picture! I also used the Small Bow Dies to make my bow.

My last share for today is the Love Statement Set.  Stephanie’s statement sets are always so versatile and this one is, too.


I used the above Scallop Heart Fold-it along with some die cut felt flowers.

And one last card for today….


I LOVE this sentiment!  I paired this with hot4balloons stamp/die set, Sizzix/SB Dotted Circles,  TSOL Stitched Circle Dies, Circle Dies and heart dies.

*All papers and inks used on my cards are by TSOL*

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

Sizzix/SB Stocking Set- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and long weekend!  I guess it’s official, the holoiday season has begun… Over the weekend I didn’t buy one single Christmas gift BUT I did make some of my Christmas cards, actually quite a few!

I’m loving the Sizzix Stocking Set that was designed by Stephanie at The Stamps of Life.

There are 18 pieces in the die set and the stocking card is the standard A2 Sized Card.

Here are a few of my cards that I’ll be sending out this season….


I mixed and matched various papers from my stash and trimmed my cards with felt.


This year, instead of sending one Christmas card to both of my parents, I decided to personalize one individually for each of them.


And this is for my mom….

I made some others for family and relatives too, but can’t post them quite yet…. I want them to be surprised!  I personalized them using Quirky Alphabet Dies  by TSOL. I may even have to personalize one for my grandcats and add a Petco gift card for each of them;)

How is your holiday shopping and card making going?  Considering it’s not December 1st yet and most of my cards are made, I’m feeling pretty good:) I tend to procrastinate, but I’m determined this year to finish everything early!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate ALL visits, questions and comments! Have a fabulous week and until the next time… Happy Stamping!
