Christmastree2StampNativity2Stamp- The Stamps of Life

Hi everyone!  This is my second post today because there are so many fabulous new releases happening at The Stamps of Life, today!!!

It’s September 1st today, which means a new Club Set!  Did I just say September 1st?  Whoosh!  What happened to summer?  Fall is creeping upon us, and so isn’t Chrisitmas!  I LOVE both of these new Christmas releases!

Christmastree2Stamp with coordinating dies is the Club Set this month!

The best part is the tree doesn’t have to be used for just Christmas… It’s perfect for a winter or outdoor scene!

Here are some samples I made using this set:

I love using nontraditional Christmas colors, sometimes!

For the base of my card, I used the Exclusive Stitched Rectangle Die Set and Sizzix Dotted Rectangles. I used TSOL felt to make my tree and stars, and added mini pom-poms to the stars for a fun look to my tree!

This card was so much fun to make!  I used all the different sentiments to create my own patterened paper.  Once again, I used TSOL Stitched Rectangle Dies(see link in above card) and also used Sizzix Greetings Scalloped Edge Drop-ins.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card.  I used Sizzix Happy Holidays 3-D Drop-ins Sentiments to make the inside pop up portion.

And one more… but I just used the Christmas lights and stars from the set.

I couldn’t resist…. How cute is this little guy?!  I used Sizzix Circles, Dotted Framelits Die Set to put my dog on.  The dog is from Friends4Cookie stamp/die set. His Santa hat was made from Hats for Critters Dies and TSOL felt.

Now on to the nativity2stamp stamp set and dies.

I absolutely LOVE,LOVE, LOVE this set!  Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always adored nativity sets, and have a few that come out every Christmas.  I was soooo excited to get this stamp & die set!

And one more, a shaker style card.

I used the recently released Scalloped Rectangles and Rectangle Dies to make the box part of my shaker card. Stephanie’s new Adhesive Foam makes making shakers so much easier:)!  I was never really a fan of making shakers, they just seemed like so much work to me, and I was always losing my fillers…Now I think I actually like making them!

There’s a Flash Sale going on TODAY, September 1st at The Stamps of Life!!!  This is the first of two posts today, because there are so many fantastic items that were released TODAY:)

Believe Statement Set is a wonderful and inspirational stamp/die set that I’m happy to have added to my collection of stamp sets!

Believe Statement Set

There are so many uplifting statements to coordinate with “believe.”

Here are a couple cards I made:



For this card, I also used the Sizzix Butterfly Fold-it.

Simple cards, but those statements are so inspiring, I think.

Now it’s on to Christmas…. It’s NEVER too early to get started on those holiday cards, and this drop-in style, Sizzix Card, Merry Christmas Set makes mass producing pretty simple!

I was able to make these two samples in no time…. Honestly, it took me longer to decide which papers I wanted to use!



I couldn’t resist putting the little bells on this one!  It definitely wouldn’t work as snail mail, but it could be hand delivered, or placed in a package being mailed:)

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!

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.

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.
