Gatefold Love Card

Hello!

Here is a card I made for my husband for our 20th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make a simple love card so I decided to make a gatefold card and use the Love Statement Set from The Stamps of Life.

Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11. I used the brand new stamp set from The Stamps of Life which just came out this month called Dolphins2Stamp. It was perfect for my ocean-themed card! My son is taking scuba diving lessons with his dad so I thought that an ocean-themed birthday card would be a perfect fit!

Stamp Anniething Lemonade Stand by Lisa Mears

Hello!

On my blog today I’m featuring a card I made using Stamp Anniething’s Lemonade Stand bundle. This company is new to me. I first saw them at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Orlando, Florida on May 17, 2019. Their stamps are amazing! I picked up the Lemonade Stand bundle which includes a stamped doll image and many other stamps and die cuts to go along with it. Check out my video which shows everything that is included in the bundle and the process for which I made the card. Enjoy!

More information about their Kit clubs can be found here – https://www.thestampsoflife.com/club.htm.

I made six cards and will be posting them on separate blog posts. Each card also has a You Tube process video which I will link in the blog post.

Card 6 – Bouquet of Flowers

For this card, I wanted to have as many flowers as possible coming out of the mason jar. This is why I went with a larger card base. My color inspiration was the patterned paper. I wanted the color of the flowers to match the flower colors in the patterned paper.
