Sports Cards – Sports2Stamp – The Stamps of Life

Hello! Today I’m sharing two cards I made using the Sports2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This stamp set is perfect for those sports fans in your life. It has stamps for several sports including baseball, soccer, football, and basketball.

For my first card, I used the KennyDoll1 stamp set, the soccer ball from the sports2stamp stamp set, and the cleats from the matching dies and created a soccer scene on my card.

For my second card, I used the baseball stamps and made them the focal point on top of a dotted star die cut on the front of the card.

Triple Circle Slimline Card with Fingerprint2stamp

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!
