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.

Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11. I used the brand new stamp set from The Stamps of Life which just came out this month called Dolphins2Stamp. It was perfect for my ocean-themed card! My son is taking scuba diving lessons with his dad so I thought that an ocean-themed birthday card would be a perfect fit!
