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.

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

Thinking of You Card | Flowers2Layer

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the March club set from The Stamps of Life, Flowers2Layer, and the add-on set, Extras4Flowers2Layer.

In my first card, I used the flower outline stamp from the Flowers2Layer set and then used the ink splatter stamps as the layering pieces for the inside of the flower. I used Lemonade ink for the large flower, Guava ink for the large layering piece, and Blueberry ink for the small center. I love how these layering stamps give so much dimension to the flower. It also eliminates having to color these images because you can just use your ink pads to stamp the color onto them.

Flowers2Layer and Extras4Flowers2Layer

For the card below, I used the brushstroke stamps in the Extras4Flowers2Layer set to create this fun birthday card.

Large Circle Flip-it & Circle Words – 2 Cards

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the Large Circle Flip-it and Circle Add-on word dies.

In my first card, I used the Large Circle Flip-it to create this Thinking of You card. I just love the flowers included in the circle flip-it card base. I layered them up and inked the edges to give them some dimension. The Thinking of You die in the center of the flip-it card is part of an add-on set of dies. The add-on set consists of other words such as Just Pray, I’m So Sorry, and Thank You My Friend.

Large Circle Flip-it

For the card below, I used the shaker circle die set which is another add-on die set that you can use in conjunction with the Large Circle Flip-it or as standalone dies. What I love about these dies is that they not only cut out of the circle, but they also put a stitched frame around the circle in the cardstock. You can use these to frame an image on a card.
