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!

Ink-Blended and Stencil Background Techniques

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using the dotted flower background die set from The Stamps of Life. I’m also sharing two techniques that you can use with your background dies. One technique is simply die cutting the background die and ink-blending the cardstock after it’s die cut to create the beautiful background on the left (above).  The second technique is using your background die as a stencil as shown in the card on the right (above).

To see a tutorial of how I made these cards, watch my YouTube video below. Links to the products are also listed below.

Circle Dots Stencil Birthday Card

LisaMears_CircleDotStencil_Logo

Hello! Today I am sharing a fun birthday card that I made using the Circle Dots stencil from The Stamps of Life. In addition to the stencil, I also used the pinatas2stamp and matching dies.

I started with a piece of powered sugar cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. To create the fun background, I placed the stencil on top of the cardstock and ink-blended the following color inks — cantaloupe, kiwi, seaglass, and sunshine.

Using Spectrum Noir Finesse Noir Black ink, I stamped the piñata image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers. I selected Copic markers that matched closely to the inks that I used for the background. The die cut the piñata with the piñata shadow die from the Pinanta2Stamp dies and adhered it with dimensional foam to the front of the card. I also used the Pinanta2Stamp dies and die cut the star shapes out of the cardstock colors –  sunshine, kiwi, and seaglass. I adhered the star pieces to the centers of the circle dots stencil on the card layer.

I stamped the sentiment with Licorice ink directly onto the background. The sentiment is from the Pinanta2Stamp stamp set. I adhered cantaloupe epoxy dots to the middle of the stars.

The entire card layer was adhered to a piece of cantaloupe cardstock cut to an A2 size card base which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Supplies:

  1. Inks – Cantaloupe, Kiwi, Seaglass, Sunshine,

Sending You Lots of Love

 

Sending You Lots of Love The Stamps of Life

Getting ready for Valentine’s Day, this card is full of pink and hearts! All products used are The Stamps of Life.

The mini  heart stencil was used to ink blend the background of the card. The color inks used are bubblegum, candy, and guava. The lightest color (bubblegum) is on the bottom, followed by candy, and then guava at the top.

The two hearts were die cut from ink-blended cardstock using the Double Hearts die that Stamps of Life club members received free in December. The ink colors are the same as the background — bubblegum, candy, and guava.

The “Sending You Lots of Love” is a sentiment die that comes with a coordinating shadow die.  The shadow was die cut with guava cardstock and the sentiment was die cut with powdered sugar cardstock. The three hearts attached to the word die were die cut from the same ink-blended cardstock as the larger hearts.
