Thinking of You Card

Hi everyone!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a thinking of you card. I ink-blended the sky background and colored the flower images from the MoreLoveBugs2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The sentiment is from the newly released heartwords2stamp from The Stamps of Love. This set includes five sentiments (Miss You, Thinking of You, Hello, Thank you, and Best Wishes) that can be die cut with the matching dies. Each sentiment includes small hearts that extend beyond the edges of the letters.

To see how I made this card, watch my tutorial here —

Guitar Shaker Card
Beach, birthday, Box Card, Copic, Hearts, Love, Ocean, Shaker Card, Stamps of Life, Thank You Cards, Valentine's Day

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

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.
