Best Buds Stand Up Card

Best Buds Stand Up Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made using the BestBudsBears2Stamp stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This stamp set includes the two twin bear stamps you see pictured in my card as well as some adorable sentiments.  There is also a matching die set to go along with this set.

I started off by stamping both bear images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock with Spectrum Noir Finesse Rustic Brown alcohol proof ink. I colored the images with Copic markers. When I was finished coloring, I die cut the bears with the matching dies.

The card base is from the Word Stand-Up Card die set from The Stamps of Life. I die cut the card base with gingersnap card stock and used the patterned paper from the Blessed Collection for the layering pieces and adhered them to the card.

For the top portion of the card, I adhered the bear images as shown. I die cut a balloon from the 5 x 7 Box Card die set using powered sugar cardstock for the shadow layer and blue jay cardstock for the balloon. I adhered the balloon to the hand of the bear on the right and used white twine for the string. I added a die cut bow in blue jay cardstock to the bear on the left.

For the bottom portion of the card, I stamped the “Best Buds” sentiment with Chocolate ink. I used the Ribbon die and die cut a a piece of powdered sugar cardstock and adhered it above the sentiment. Finally, I added the flower embellishments to each side of the sentiment.

Ice Cream Truck Stand Up Card

Ice Cream Truck Stand Up Card


Here is the fourth card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” I just love this cute ice cream truck and wanted to use some beautiful spring colors. I love the colors in the card. It makes me so happy!

I stamped the ice cream truck image on Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my alcohol markers and then die cut it with the matching IceCreamTruck2Stamp dies. The ice cream cones were stamped on the same cardstock and colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly2Stamp stamps and matching dies. Using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, I used Spectrum Sparkle markers to color across the page starting with the first color and then adding the next color. Once the cardstock was colored, I stamped the image onto the colored cardstock and then die cut the image out.  I also used the small flower in the die set to die cut several flowers from the same paper colored in Spectrum Sparkle markers.  A dot of morning dew crystal drops was placed in the center of each flower.
