The Stamps of Life – HSN Craft Day Release – Alphabet and Number Dies

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing two new products by The Stamps of Life that will be featured on HSN on May 5, 2020. However, you don’t need to wait until May 5 to hop on over to the HSN website to place your order. They are currently on sale NOW!

These dies are so much fun. They have a square shaped pattern on each individual letter and number. You can use them in so many ways — as standalone letters/numbers, using them with the shadow dies, using only the outline with the shadow dies, or you can die cut them into a piece of cardstock and use the negative piece on a card. See below for some fun different ways of using these dies.

Be sure to check out my YouTube video showing some fun ways to use these dies and a two card tutorial.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Cards - The Stamps of Life
Christmas, fold-it card, Gatefold Card, Gift Box, Stamps of Life

Gingerbread Man Cards

Today on my blog I am featuring three projects that I created using the Gingerbread Man Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Cards - The Stamps of Life

Watch my video tutorial for all three projects here:

Project 1

For the first project, I created a gingerbread man fold-it card. A fold-it card is an A2 sized card shaped like a gingerbread man. It can easily fit into an A2 sized envelope.  You can either have the card open at the top or on the left side. I chose mine to open from the top. The die set also has several die pieces that you can use to decorate the gingerbread man. Some of the dies include a face, clothing, icing, and more.

The card stock I used for this card includes ginger snap, powdered sugar, and strawberry. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Joyful collection paper pad for the blue plaid overalls. I added epoxy dots for the buttons. I inked the edges of the smaller gingerbread die cut with gingersnap ink. I think this added a nice touch. It makes it look like a toasted cookie!

Since this is a fold-it card, I decorated the front and the back and I think it turned out super cute!

Gingerbread Man Fold It Card - The Stamps of Life

For my next project, I created a gingerbread gate fold card. I used the largest die in the set and cut it out of gingersnap card stock. I used the second largest die and cut another piece of gingersnap card stock. Again, I used gingersnap ink and ink-blended the edges to make it look slightly toasted. I adhered those together and then added his clothing and icing.  The card stock is gingersnap, powdered sugar, and spearmint. The patterned paper is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints and adhered them to the front of the pockets. I also used foam adhesive to add three as buttons.

Supplies:

  1. Gingerbread Man Fold-It Die Set
  2. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  3. Powdered Sugar Cardstock
  4. Strawberry Cardstock
  5. Gingersnap Ink Pad
  6. Joyful Collection Paper Pad

Project 2

I used a gate fold card die to make the card base and adhered the gingerbread man to the front left opening. I used spearmint cardstock for the bow tie and pockets. The patterned paper I used is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints from one of the pieces of paper and adhered them to the pockets. I added foam adhesive to the three peppermints that I used as buttons.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Cards - The Stamps of Life

For the inside of the card, I used a piece of powdered sugar cardstock. I stamped the peppermints as shown. The inside of the peppermints were stamped with strawberry ink. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the ChristmasTree2stamp and was stamped with spearmint ink.

Gingerbread Gatefold Inside

Supplies:

  1. Gingerbread Man Fold-It Die Set
  2. Gatefold A2 Card Die Set
  3. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  4. Powdered Sugar Cardstock
  5. Spearmint Ink Pad
  6. Gingersnap Ink Pad
  7. Joyful Collection Paper Pad
  8. ChristmasTree2Stamp (for “Merry Christmas” sentiment)
  9. Candy2Share Stamp (for peppermint candy inside of card)

Project 3

For my third project, I made a treat box using the Gingerbread man fold-it die set as well as the box-it die set.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Treat Box - The Stamps of Life

I die cut and decorated two gingerbread men, one for the front of the box and one for the back of the box. Both gingerbread men were decorated identically.

I also used the box-it die which I cut with gingersnap card stock to match the gingerbread men. I connected the box-it die cut to both gingerbread men, added some grass filling, and some candy canes.

  3. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  4. Powdered Sugar Cardstock

Elves2StampChristmas Card Using Wreath Builder
Christmas, Copic, Gina K. Designs, Stamps of Life

Elf Christmas Card

I’m so excited to share with you a Christmas card I made using the Elves2Stamp stamp set by The Stamps of Life. All of the stamped images on the card are from this stamp set. I used the Wreath Builder Template by Gina K. Designs to stamp the images into a wreath pattern onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth card stock and then colored them in with Copic markers. I used The Stamps of Life Kiwi card stock for the A2 size card base. The red and green polka dot patterned paper is from The Stamps of Life Merry Collection 6 x 6 paper pad and was cut down to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and layered onto the card base. I also layered two dotted oval dies underneath the cute elf. I did not use a sentiment on the front of the card because I didn’t want to cover up all of the cute stamped images. Therefore, the sentiment is on the inside of the card. To see a complete video tutorial, visit my YouTube channel. The link is below the pictures.
