Pinata2Stamp Handmade Card

Hello! Today on my blog is a brand new release from The Stamps of Life called Pinata2Stamp. Here, I colored the stamped image with my Copic markers and die cut it with the shadow layer from the pinata dies. I also used the fringe dies that were sent free to club members (a perk of being a club member!) to create a colorful background of fringe in cardstock colors that match the pinata colors. I absolutely love how this turned out! To see a video tutorial, watch my YouTube video and be sure to subscribe to my channel to see more cardmaking tutorials from me.

LoveBear2Stamp
Copic, Easter, Hearts, Love, Stamps of Life, Valentine's Day

Valentine Truck with Bears

Hello!

Valentine’s Day is only four weeks away and I’m getting a head start on my Valentine’s Day cards.

I am in love with this brand new adorable stamp – LoveBear2Stamp – from The Stamps of Life!  It has so many fun hearts, Valentines, two adorable bears, and of course an old fashioned pick-up truck, my favorite! It has a coordinating die set called Valentine Truck w/Bears.  You can use the die set to die cut several pieces of cardstock and/or patterned paper and then paper pierce them together to form the image. This is great if you don’t like to color — you can simply use your papers to make the die cut. At the bottom of this post is a link to my card tutorial on YouTube.

For my first card, I used the stamp and colored it with Copic markers. The stamp is a large stamp which will fill most of the front of an A2 size card base. Therefore, you really don’t need many other things to add to the card front to decorate it. Just put the stamp on a card, color it in, add a few papers, and your done!

For my second card, I used only the dies. It is shown here on a step-up card base. I also used the mini heart stencil to create my own patterned paper.

LoveBear2Stamp

I also made a third card. This card demonstrates that you can fill the pick-up truck with anything! It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day related. You can simply cut the hearts away and add something else of your choice. For my card, I added Easter eggs!

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.
