Tree Fold-it Card

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing the Tree Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set is much larger than all of the previous fold-it die sets that The Stamps of Life sells. The tree measures 5″ x 7″ and comes with so many cute pieces to decorate the tree — an owl with nest, flower, leaves, apple, acorn, and an extra tree bush. Watch my YouTube video to see all of the components as well a 2-card tutorial. I made one card as a fold-it card and another with the tree on the front of a 5×7 card base.

The Stamps of Life January 2020 Card Kit – 10 Cards 1 Kit

I’m so excited to share with you my latest 10 Cards 1 Kit project using The Stamps of Life January 2020 card kit. This kit is so much fun! It corresponds with the monthly stamp and die set – birdhouses2stamp.

The Stamps of Life January 2020 Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit

The color pallet for this month is cherry, chocolate, kiwi, banana, lemonade, ocean, strawberry, gingersnap, and a brand new color — vanilla! The vanilla cardstock replaces the powdered sugar cardstock that has been in the card kits previously. There are even vanilla envelopes!

The kit comes with a petite paper pad — the Dream Collection. I absolutely love The Stamps of Life paper pads because four of the sheets in this month’s paper pad include birdhouse diecuts that can be die cut with the corresponding shadow die from the birdhouses2stamp die set. There are a total of 38 birdhouse diecuts and 20 bird diecuts from this paper pad! This means super easy and quick cards!

The kit also comes with two dies — a cloud die and a word die. The cloud die comes with a shadow layer as well as a top layer that is stitched with raindrops which add texture when die cut. The word die, Dream, comes with a shadow layer and word.

In addition, the kit comes with buttons in chocolate, kiwi, and strawberry. The buttons are not ordinary buttons though. Instead, they have sticky flat backs that can adhere directly onto the front of a card. There are also some beautiful rhinestone flower embellishments, cherry ribbon, and kiwi polka dot ribbon.

Lastly, the kit comes with a sheet of chipboard pieces which include birdhouses, hearts, flowers, and sentiments. More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.

Below are the 10 cards I made with this card kit.  To see a video tutorial, click the video below:

Birdhouse Slimline Card Tutorial

Birdhouse Card

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline card that I made using the January release of the birdhouses2stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The set comes with four birdhouse stamps, a branch or birdhouse stand, a bird, a small heart, and four sentiments.Birdhouse Card The Stamps of Life

I stamped the images and colored them with my Copic markers and then cut them out using the shadow dies from the birdhouses2stamp die set. The wreath2stamp die set was used to die cut the tiny flowers.

I used The Stamps of Life Color Box inks to ink blend a background using Seaglass, Ocean, and Sky inks.

Flower Pot Fold-It – 2 Cards

Today on my blog, I’m sharing two cards that I made with the Flower Pot Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. You can use this die set to make an A2 sized card with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It can be used for just about any occasion — Birthdays, Thank You’s, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Sympathy, Get Well, etc.

The die set comes with six dies — two dies to make the flower pot and four dies to make the flowers. All you need to do is to supply the paper and embellishments!

Watch my video tutorial here:

The Stamps of Life Fan Group Weekly Challenge – Flowers – Card 6

Hello!

I was asked by Kristin Bost, a design team member for The Stamps of Life, to host a weekly challenge in The Stamps of Life Facebook Fan Group. Of course, I said yes. I just love the stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life. I’ve been a member of their Die Hard Club for two years and just recently joined the Card Kit Club. More information about their Kit clubs can be found here – https://www.thestampsoflife.com/club.htm.

The theme for the weekly challenge is flowers. The only rule is to use products from The Stamps of Life….easy peasy!!

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.
