2 Cards using 3-D Pop-up Drop-in Die Set- The Stamps of Life


Hello! Today on my blog I am featuring two cards that I made using the 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set from The Stamps of Life.

The two cards are show above. The first card on the left incorporates all of the dies that come in the die set which include the gorgeous background die in the center as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons. The nice thing about this die set is that any of The Stamps of Life background dies will work with this set.

The second card on the right uses the same 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set, however, instead of using a background die in the center, a scalloped rectangle was used to make a shadow box center. Then, I used the Rainbow2Stamp stamp set to incorporate a rainbow in the inside center of the card.

The entire process can be seen on my YouTube video below. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crafty inspiration.  Supplies are also listed below.

Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11. I used the brand new stamp set from The Stamps of Life which just came out this month called Dolphins2Stamp. It was perfect for my ocean-themed card! My son is taking scuba diving lessons with his dad so I thought that an ocean-themed birthday card would be a perfect fit!
