Wiper Card - The Stamps of Life

Surprise Wiper Card

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the Surprise Wiper Card Die Set from The Stamps of Life. This die set is so fun because it makes an interactive element inside of the card. By adhering a small flap to the inside of the card, you can attach a stamp or another die cut piece to the flap to have it pop up when the card is moved side to side.

I made my first card into a box shape and included a rainbow on the inside flap.

For my second card, I used the Summer4Fun set and turned this card into a beach scene where the sun pops up from the center.

4-inch Alphabet Die Set
5 x 7, Flowers, Slimline Card, Stamps of Life

Cards with Alphabet and Number Dies

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing three cards that I made using the new alphabet and number die set from The Stamps of Life. These dies are 4 inches in size. They are big! You can use these as the centerpiece of a card. You can also use them on large banners or as standalone letters and numbers on a fold-it card. I used these dies in three different ways.

For the card below, I used pattern paper to die cut the top layering piece and adhered it to a white shadow layer.

For the card below, I used only the dotted die and die cut into the cardstock to create this fun dot pattern.

For my final card, I used the number dies. I used all three dies with different color cardstock for the layering pieces. I love how the dots show through with a different color than the rest of the layers.

Iced Coffee Card
coloring, Slimline Card, Stamps of Life

2 Cards – IcedCoffee2Stamp

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the IcedCoffee2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. Even if you are not a coffee lover, this set may appeal to you. I don’t drink coffee. In fact, I’ve never had a sip of coffee in my life, but when I saw this set, I immediately thought of milkshakes! You’ll see why when you see my second card.

For my first card, I colored both of the coffee stamps and layered them on the doily.

For the inside, I used the letters4lettertray to finish stamping the sentiment. I also used the miniature donut from the Donut2Stamp set for the inside.

Iced Coffee Card

For my second card, I used one of the coffee images to create three milkshakes on this slimline card. This coffee stamp can also be used as an icee.

I added some glossy accents to the whipped cream on the milkshakes and then added some sprinkles shaker bits to the top. I love the added dimension of the sprinkles.

Birdbath Card - The Stamps of Life
coloring, Slimline Card, Stamps of Life

Birdbath Cards

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the April club set from The Stamps of Life, Birdbath2stamp, and the add-on set, Morebirdbath2stamp.

For my first card, I stamped the images and colored them using my Copic markers. I also used the stamp for the bushes from the Morebirdbath2stamp set. For the background, I used a cloud stencil along with Lemonade and Sunshine ink to ink up the cardstock to resemble a sky. I added a scalloped rectangle border around the image by layering two of the largest scalloped rectangle dies and diecutting them from the Sky cardstock.

Birdbath Card - The Stamps of Life

For my second card, I made a slimline card using the birdbath and the new dotted slimline panel die to create this cute scene.
