Happy 4th of July Bear2Stamp Flip-its-The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!!!! Happy 4th of July!  I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday.  It’s a beautiful day…. where I live, and hope it is where you live, too.  I have a quick card to share with you before I head for some family fun.

This card took no time at all to make and I LOVE interactive cards!


To make this card I used the Sizzix Star Flip-its and bear2stamp stamp set with dies. The basket is a die from a coordinating set, called friend4bear dies.  My flag is a cupcake topper and I filled my basket with some mini flowers.  I added some twine and was finished.  Super quick and easy!

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

New Rainbow2Stamp & Flash Sale on Dream Statement Set and Sizzix You Are Loved Drop-in Die – The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  Happy July1st!  I can’t believe it’s already July, but I’m as happy as can be… summer is my FAVORITE season. You know what else the first of the month means… BRAND NEW RELEASES from The Stamps of Life!  Today, I’m sharing the Club Set called rainbow2stamp with matching dies .  There are also two Flash Sale items available TODAY called Dream Statement Set and Sizzix You Are Loved 3-D Drop-in Die.

I’ll start by sharing some samples from this month’s club set.  This 7 piece stamp set is so much fun and happy! The best part is that there are matching dies! (see link above)



Behind every rainbow is some sunshine, so I paired the stamp set with Sizzix Hello Sunshine Triplits .  


A pink and blue rainbow?!  Why not?!  That’s what’s so fun about making cards….they can be any way you want them to be!  I used the Sizzix Square Stand-up to complete this card.

Here are some more great samples and ideas in TSOL Gallery!

And now for the Flash Sale items…..

The Dream Sentiment set is another fun and versatile set!

Dream Statement Set

See how many possibilities there are….


I paired “dream” with The Stamps of Life Stitched Star Dies.


Can you tell how much I LOVE Stand-up card dies?  This time I used Sizzix Scalloped Circle Stand-ups Card Die Set.  I love how the “dream” fits perfectly on the Stand-ups!

I am also in love with 3-D Pop-ups… Stephanie has made it so easy, peasy to make these types of cards!

One thing you need to know… in order to use the 3D Pop-up Dies you need to own one of the following card bases for it to to coordinate with.  You may already own one… They are: Sizzix 3-D Scallop w/Gifts Drop-ins, Sizzix 3-D Flowers Drop-ins or, the soon to be retired Sizzix 3-D Banner Drop-ins.  I love how Stephanie comes out with new to work with your old ones!

You Are Loved…. is just beautiful, I think.

Sizzix You Are Loved 3-D Drop-in

It doesn’t look like much on it’s own, but inside a card, the recipient will definitely be wowed!

Here are my samples I designed:


On my card front I used Sizzix Triplits Spring Bird and Newport Flower Dies.

Here’s the “WOW” part…


Unexpected…. and I think beautiful!  Perfect for any occasion, really.

One last card:


On my card front, I used, list2write stamp set, Notebook Edge Die, scarecrow2stamp with dies, and Sizzix Dotted Rectangle Dies.


Everyone wants to know they’re loved by somebody….. which is why I think this die works for a “Just Because” card or any occasion!

Big Banner Die-The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I’m here to share a BRAND NEW die released today,  at  The Stamps of Life.

I LOVE this…. it’s called  Big Banner Die 

Look how much fun!

Big Banner Die Set


I decorated my banner with Sizzix Border Word Dies, Mini Flower Dies, along with Sizzix Half A2 Card Set .


I used a few different dies on this banner, too.  I used the following:

Sizzix Happy Birthday Card Set, Sizzix Triplits Party Hat, and Sizzix 5×7 Circle Flip-its Card Set for the balloons.

So many possibilities with this set!

If you think you may be interested in purchasing this die, I wouldn’t wait too long because there is only a limited quantity of them…. Stephanie designed this for her daughter, who is a school teacher, and did not have a large quantity of these  dies made.

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

For my card front, I used Sizzix Bee Triplits and TSOL Quarter Flowers with Leaves.


A fun surprise when the recipient opens it!  I layered Sizzix Word Circle  over a die cut flower for a little more interest.  Isn’t this fun?!

One more…IMG_5092

I used Sizzix Flowers/Sentiments Scalloped Edge Drop-ins for the base of my card, along with TSOL Shabby Chic Flower Dies. I stamped my sentiment using upliftingwords2hear stamp set.


I added more of the same flowers on the inside for a fun look.

Just Pray…..


Sadly, I’ve had to make quite a few of these cards, referencing to different kinds of cancer over the past couple of years.  I guess no one is immune to having or knowing someone with this horrific disease! The stamp and die set I used is called ribbon4cure. I also used the Sizzix Scallop Circle Die along with the flower die from the Sizzix Circle Stand-Ups Die Set.


And the inside…


For my card front on this one, I used scribbles2stamp stamp set and die cut some flowers.


I added more flowers from the Sizzix 3-D Flower Drop-ins set.

All papers and inks on cards I shared are by TSOL.

Hello everyone!  June 7th today and some awesome new releases from The Stamps of Life. I have some fun samples to share with you using all three sets!

First, I want to share sharkpudgie  stamp set  with dies!


Here are some cards I made using this set:


I paired it with Sizzix Circle Dotted Framelits Die Set, Sizzix Tags and Words Stamp/ Die Set,  watermelon die (bite) Sizzix Triplits, Hello Sunshine. I love using vellum for shaker cards, I find it so much easier to work with.  I love this little shark, especially with summer fast approaching!


This time I paired the set with TSOL Photo Frame Die. Isn’t this fun?

Next, is Minidoublebanner2stamp stamp set which is also a Flash Sale item today!  There are also some coordinating dies, sold separately.


This is a perfect set for those “special” birthdays!

Lastly, sayings4fish was released today, coordinating with this month’s Club Set called fish2stamp.


This set is one of my FAVORITES….. and works perfectly with Sharkpudgie!

Fish2Stamp June Club Set- The Stamps of Life

Hello everyone!  I want to share an adorable stamp & die set with you today, called fish2stamp.  It’s the June Club Set  and super cute!!!!

This is what the stamp set looks like and it has coordinating fish dies.


I have three different cards to share with you today.


To create the look of water, I used Sizzix Scallop Border Dies. I thought the paperclip worked perfectly for a fish hook!


Once again, I used the same Sizzix Scallop Border Die for my water. (see above link) and die cut my balloon using the Sizzix 5×7 CircleFlip-its set.  This little fish is one of my favorites in the set.  I think he’s so cute!


Lastly, I used the Sizzix Square Stand-Up for my card base.  The sun and clouds were made with Sizzix Hello Sunshine Triplits and I stamped the sentiment on TSOL Stitched  Oval Dies.

All papers and inks I used are by TSOL

Check out the Gallery for some great ideas and samples!
