Nativity Scene Christmas Card

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a nativity scene Christmas card that I made using several products from The Stamps of Life. I used the Starburst background die to die cut the background and ink-blended the cardstock with Blueberry, Midnight, and Licorice inks. I used the Extras4SnowGlobe dies to die cut the nativity scene from Licorice card stock and gold glitter cardstock. The palm trees are from the Flamingo2Stamp dies and I used the border dies for the hillside border. Finally, the Christmas sentiment is from the Christmas Statement set. A complete tutorial is on my YouTube channel and a link to the video is below.

Triple Circle Slimline Card using FingerPrint2Stamp

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline shaker card that I made using some fun products from The Stamps of Life. For this card, I used the FingerPrints2Stamp set and the Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set.

The Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set works with the Rounded Slimline Card die set and the Slimline Card die set to cut the background out of the paper to put on the front of a slimline card. Using this drop-in makes it easy to turn a regular card into a shaker card.

I also used the Fingerprint2stamp set. This is such a fun set. It includes stamps of various images — fish, dog, cat, bear, football, elephant, and more. Just put your fingerprint in an ink pad and then put your finger to the paper to fill in the inside of the stamp…so fun!
