Snowflake Fold-it

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a snowflake shaped card that I made with the Snowflake Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set makes an A2 size card shaped like a snowflake. You can also use it on a scrapbook page or on the front of a card. Thinking outside of the box, it can also be used as an ornament for your Christmas tree by adding a ribbon to the top. You can even use it as a holiday gift tag. There are so many possibilities.

Supplies:

  1. Snowflake Fold-it
  2. Snowglobe2Stamp and dies
  3. Cardstock: Guava, Powdered Sugar
  4. Glitter Paper A

The Stamps of Life Birthday Kit – 13 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life Birthday Kit - 13 Cards 1 Kit Birthday cards are the cards that I make the most of so I was so excited when I found out that The Stamps of Life was releasing a Birthday Kit.   This kit includes the Brights Everyday Collection paper pad with a color scheme of Kiwi, Green Apple, Sunshine, Blueberry, Ocean, and Poppy. Poppy is the newest color at The Stamps of Life. The kit will also include a large Poppy ink pad and refill, felt border stickers, a sprinkles stencil, a stamp set with a fun birthday party scene, matching dies, and a large sheet of die cuts that include cupcakes, birthday hats, balloons, and presents. I’m excited to share with you all of the fun cards and tags that I created with this kit. I created a total of 13 projects — 11 cards and 2 tags. If you are interested in seeing an unboxing of the kit and my design process for all of my cards and tags, watch my YouTube video.
