Hello My Friends!

Did you happen to catch the stunning watercolor cards created by Design Team Member Katherine?
Katherine was kind enough to recap her whole process for us!

Here's Katherine to show us how she created these beautiful cards!

I have two cards to share today featuring some favorite products from The Stamps of Life:

Here is a quick video:

I added Sky and Grape reinkers onto a piece of watercolor paper to create my background. After letting that dry, I cut the piece out with a Rectangle stitched die.

I cut three Pixie heart pieces from the Tea set dies
I stamped and cut the tea cups and succulents. I used PoolPixie, GrapeKiwi and Green Apple ink. The words are from Words4jar dies.
I layered all my pieces onto Kiwi and Sky Stitched rectangles. This was added to an A2 Grape card base.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to do a cool or warm color palette so I ended up with an extra piece of watercolored background of Tangerine and Bananaink. I also had an extra teacup and Succulent
I cut the Just a note from Powdered Sugar and Sky
  I added a trio of felt flowers from a previous card kit.

We love what Katherine created! So thankful we got to see it step by step!
Happy Stamping!

Shoot! We Missed It!

Hello My Friends!

Apparently last week as National Dog Biscuit Day and we missed it... poor Cookie!

Our clever Design Team Member Kristine didn't forget! Look at the adorable treat box she created!

Here's Kristine to tell you about her project!

Every day is "National Something Day" and apparently today is National Dog Biscuit Day.
So today's challenge was to create something with a biscuit or a dog or even any animal.

I came up with this cute little treat box for today's challenge.

I created this using the new Box it die from The Stamps of life!

This die allows you to turn any large die into a "box".

Basically it creates the middle part you see between the front and back panels.

The Box it die sold out right away but you can pre-order it and get it as soon as it's back in stock.

What else will you need to create this fun box?

Thanks for sharing your super cute project with us Kristine!
Happy Stamping!

Sometimes you just want to be a little sassy…  The Stamps of Life just released a fun AND sassy birthday stamp set!
sassybirthday2stamp is the perfect set for when you want to add a little bit of “sass” to your birthday cards. I think we all have that one friend or family member that you just want to send a fun card birthday card to!
I made two fun cards using this set…
I used the Sizzix Cupcake Fold-it as my card base and added some fun faces on the cherries! I can think of several people I could send this one to! 😉 Fun!
Here’s another fun sentiment in the set that I paired with Sizzix Hello A2 Drop-in Card

Design Team Member Vanessa Here!

Hello Friends!

Today we are sharing a post from Design team member Vanessa. Vanessa is highlighting two items that were released last week! The Box-it die is now available on pre order!

Here's Vanessa to tell us about what she thinks of the new products and to share some of her projects!

Two new awesome products have been released last week at The Stamps of Life, and you're going to want them both!

A new fold it by Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard:  strawberry!!  A2 in size and so cute!!  Here's a card I made with it: I used stamps from strawberries2stamp, because they go with it berry well. ;) :) 
 and...... the box it die!  An exclusive die from The Stamps of Life that will turn any of the fold-its into a fun box.  Awesome, right? 
Here's a goodie box I made using the cupcake fold it. You could use just the cupcake shape, but I decided to keep mine a card AND add it to the box, so... two in one!  and filled with yummy candy.
...but WAIT!

You don't have to use a fold-it's die.  I will work with other dies!  Check out these ideas:

House4cookie stamp/die.... (friends4cookie
 Hotchocolate2stamp and dies..... (sayings4tshirt)
 Coffee4two stamps and dies..... (alpha from foxes2stamp dies)
SO FUN!  So many possibilities!  

Happy Stamping Friends!

February Card Kit

Hello Friends!

We've got something super fun for you today! Our February guest designer Rachael Alvarado is here today sharing some amazing projects and her thought about the Blessed Card Kit for February! Check out what Rachel is sharing!

Hello, crafty friends!  I hope your week is off to a good start!  I have a gorgeous Card Kit to share with you today from The Stamps of Life.  This month's kit is called the Blessed Collection.

 I absolutely love the Card Kits from The Stamps of Life.  They are reasonably priced for the amount of goodies that you receive and ship for free.  The theme always coordinates with that month's Stamp and Die Set of the month (which are separate from the Card Kit) and comes with their own exclusive stamp and die set.

The other thing that is very appealing is that when you sign up for the Card Kit Club, you automatically receive 15% off on all future Stamps of Life purchases while you are a club member.  If you are also a member of the Die Hard Club, (where you automatically receive the stamp and die set of the month), you get 20% off on all Stamps of Lifepurchases.  Another huge bonus is that you get the 20% off of sale prices too!  I have been a Club Member for almost 4 years now and I absolutely love all of the perks that come with it!

 I made some quick and easy cards with this month's Card Kit.  I tried to used only products that came with the Card Kit to show you how easy they are to use.  I did use a few standard-shaped dies that many of you may already have (from various companies) which I will list below.  All products that I used in my cards, though, were from The Stamps of Life.

I love the embellishments that come with this month's kit!  those wooden flower pieces are just gorgeous and look so beautiful on each card.

Each kit comes with a beautiful color palette that compliments each other.  As you can see, this card varies greatly in color from the others that I made, but compliments them very well.

The wreaths that I used on two of the cards actually came with this Card Kit  as well.  They match perfectly with the Stamp and Die Set of the month.

I simply cut these wreaths from the Blessed Patterned Paper Pad that comes with the kit.  It has 24 gorgeous double-sided pieces of heavy-duty patterned paper.

Since I'm a Club Member, I had the die to cut them out, but you can easily fussy cut them if you wanted to!

Here's a fun quick little video to show you what this month's kit includes! 

Head HERE for more details on joining The Stamps of Life Card Kit Club!  If you love card making and are looking for a way to make quick, easy, and elegant cards, I truly believe that you will love this club!

Thanks so much for dropping by!  If you liked these cards and want some more crafty inspiration, don't forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

Wishing you all a lovely day!

Happy Stamping!
