String Art Heart Shaped Card

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing a card that I made using the brand new String Art Heart Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set makes an A2 card in the shape of a heart. You have the option of using the string heart on top of the heart.

I also used some other fun sets from The Stamps of Life to make this cute scene including  Mushrooms2Stamp, Solids4Mushrooms, and Gnomes2Stamp.

Thinking of You Card

Hi everyone!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a thinking of you card. I ink-blended the sky background and colored the flower images from the MoreLoveBugs2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The sentiment is from the newly released heartwords2stamp from The Stamps of Love. This set includes five sentiments (Miss You, Thinking of You, Hello, Thank you, and Best Wishes) that can be die cut with the matching dies. Each sentiment includes small hearts that extend beyond the edges of the letters.
