The Stamps of Life | Trendy Twig Kit | 10 cards 1 Kit

There is a brand new kit over at the The Stamps of Life which is called “Trendy Twig.” There are so many fun products in this kit including the brand new ink color — Twig!  The kit includes a full size Twig ink pad with refill, pattern paper pad, five petal stencil, ephemera, felt bows, epxoy dots, flourish stamps/dies, and two ribbon. Let me just say that there is SO MUCH ephemera in this kit! Not only do you have a separate pack of ephemera filled with die cuts such as turtles, picnic baskets, llamas, wreaths, flowers, and birdhouses, but the paper pad also has several sheets of ephemera that can be die cut or fussy cut for even more ephemera to include on your cards!

There are several corresponding stamp and die sets that go along with this kit which include the following:

  1. Picnic2Stamp and Dies
  2. Birdhouses2Stamp and Dies
  3. Llama2Stamp and Dies
  4. Garden2Stamp and Dies
  5. Wreath2Stamp and Dies
  6. Tortie2Stamp and Dies
  7. MoreTorties2Stamp and Dies

While you definitely do not need the above sets for this kit, I used some of the sentiments on the corresponding stamps for my cards. In addition, if you want to die cut the ephemera in the paper pad, you can use the matching dies. However, if you don’t have the matching dies, you can fussy cut the ephemera from the paper pad.

Guitar Shaker Card

Guitar Cards

Today on my blog I am sharing some cards that I made using the guitar dies from The Stamps of Life. These dies go along with the stamp set, Guitars2Play, which was previously released. The stamps did not have dies, so now they do! For my cards, I did some paper piecing to create the guitars.

For my first card, I also used some circle dies to create a record as a die cut image on the card. I just love how it turned out with the two guitar die cuts added to the card.

For my second card, I created a shaker card using the guitar dies and the dotted star dies.

UPDATE: The small “You Rock” word die used on these cards is not available in the guitar die set. It came with my design team shipment, but The Stamps of Life decided to not include it in the final packaging. Another option is the large “You Rock” word die. Here’s a link – https://thestampsoflife.com/you-rock-dies.html

A compete tutorial is in my YouTube video here —

Scallop Mermaid Box - Beach Theme
Beach, birthday, Box Card, Copic, Hearts, Love, Ocean, Stamps of Life, Thank You Cards, Valentine's Day

Scallop Mermaid Box

Today on my blog I am sharing a box die from The Stamps of Life. It’s called the Scallop Mermaid Box.  It can be used for just about any occasion — a favor box for a wedding or baby shower, just to say “thank you,” or to give someone a gift “just because” you are thinking about them. The box measures 1 3/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches and can fit candy, gum, Chapstick, money, or a small trinket.

The die set comes with the large die to make the box. It also comes with layering pieces for the top and sides of the box. It comes with a beautiful scallop background as well as a background full of hearts. You can use the dies in the set to make a beautiful box or incorporate your own stamps/dies to make it any theme of your choosing.

To see how to put this box together, watch my YouTube tutorial here —
