The Stamps of Life 3-D Drop-in Pop Up with Rainbow

2 Cards using 3-D Pop-up Drop-in Die Set- The Stamps of Life

 

Hello! Today on my blog I am featuring two cards that I made using the 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set from The Stamps of Life.

The two cards are show above. The first card on the left incorporates all of the dies that come in the die set which include the gorgeous background die in the center as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons. The nice thing about this die set is that any of The Stamps of Life background dies will work with this set.

The second card on the right uses the same 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set, however, instead of using a background die in the center, a scalloped rectangle was used to make a shadow box center. Then, I used the Rainbow2Stamp stamp set to incorporate a rainbow in the inside center of the card.

The entire process can be seen on my YouTube video below. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crafty inspiration.  Supplies are also listed below.

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Ice Cream Stand-Up Birthday Card

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Hello!

Here is the second card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” For this card, many of the products I used are from The Stamps of Life March Card Kit and the Die Hard Club Kit.

Just like with the first ice cream card I made in the challenge, I paper pierced the ice cream scoops using only the die cuts and cardstock. Using the die set for BananaSplit2Stamp,  I ran the dies through the die cut machine using solid and patterned paper and then glued the pieces together to form the ice cream scoops. I used  Bubblegum card stock for the bottom layer of ice cream and I used polka dot paper from the Sparkle Collection patterned paper pad for the top layer. The cherry was cut with Strawberry cardstock, the banana was die cut with Banana cardstock, and the dish was die cut with Cloud cardstock.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment also came in the March card kit and was cut with Powered Sugar and Strawberry cardstock. The balloons came from the same kit and were die cut with Strawberry and Lemonade cardstock.

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.

  3. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Card Stock (to stamp the image onto)

Elegant Birthday Card – Pink

Anna Griffin Pink Birthday Card Square 2019-04Anna Griffin Pink Birthday Card Square_closeup 2019-04

 

Hello!

On today’s blog, I made another birthday card using supplies from Anna Griffin. First, I die cut shadow layers for two the lace dies and then die cut the corresponding lace die cut. Before die cutting the lace ones, I put double-sided adhesive on the back of the card stock before running them through my die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere the lace piece to the shadow piece.

Next, I added a birthday sentiment from the Anna Griffin® Birthday Wishes 3D Sticker Kit. The “Aunt” sentiment stamp is from the Treasury and was stamped onto pink card stock using the Treasury ink pad in gold. Two of the rectangle die cuts were cut and foam adhesive added in between to add dimension.

The flowers were added to the card and are from Anna Griffin® Favorite Flower 120-pack Mini 3D Sticker Set.

The cake and balloon stamps are also from the Treasury of Stamps and Dies.  I stamped the balloons and cake onto a piece of cream-colored card stock and then die cut them with the corresponding die. I die cut the shadow layers from a piece of pink card stock. Next, I adhered the die cuts to the shadow layers with foam adhesive to add dimension. Finally, I hot glued a pink bow to the balloon. The pink bow was from one of Anna Griffin’s card kits.

Another fun and elegant card to make!

Supplies used:

  1. Anna Griffin 6×6 Perfect Pattern Card Set
  2. Anna Griffin All Square Cut and Emboss Dies
  3. Anna Griffin Favorite Flower 120-pack Mini 3D Sticker Set
