Wiper Card - The Stamps of Life
interactive card, Stamps of Life, Summer

Surprise Wiper Card

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made using the Surprise Wiper Card Die Set from The Stamps of Life. This die set is so fun because it makes an interactive element inside of the card. By adhering a small flap to the inside of the card, you can attach a stamp or another die cut piece to the flap to have it pop up when the card is moved side to side.

I made my first card into a box shape and included a rainbow on the inside flap.

For my second card, I used the Summer4Fun set and turned this card into a beach scene where the sun pops up from the center.

4-inch Alphabet Die Set
5 x 7, Flowers, Slimline Card, Stamps of Life

Cards with Alphabet and Number Dies

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing three cards that I made using the new alphabet and number die set from The Stamps of Life. These dies are 4 inches in size. They are big! You can use these as the centerpiece of a card. You can also use them on large banners or as standalone letters and numbers on a fold-it card. I used these dies in three different ways.

For the card below, I used pattern paper to die cut the top layering piece and adhered it to a white shadow layer.

For the card below, I used only the dotted die and die cut into the cardstock to create this fun dot pattern.

For my final card, I used the number dies. I used all three dies with different color cardstock for the layering pieces. I love how the dots show through with a different color than the rest of the layers.

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.

Birdbath Card - The Stamps of Life

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

Slimline Cards

Hello!

The Stamps of Life has a new release over on the HSN website. It’s actually a product that they currently have for sale on their own website, but HSN is selling it as a bundle. If you like slimline cards and have always wanted to make some, this Slimline Card Die Set is for YOU!

The bundle includes the die to cut the slimline card base. That means, no measuring when cutting your card base! Yay! It also includes a fun background die which can be used for a starry night or even snow background. There are also several word dies in a beautiful script font. The words included are Happy Birthday, Thanks, Pray, Love, and Hello. There are also some butterfly dies included in the set.

These products can all be purchased on The Stamps of Life website or on HSN. If you purchase them on HSN, you are purchasing all products in a bundle for one price. If you purchase them on The Stamps of Life website, the script words are sold separately than the slimline card base die set.

For my second card, I used the birdhouse dies which are part of the Create-a-Scene set. The birdhouse dies were intended to be used for the front of the Create-a-Scene card base, but I chose to use them on the slimline card as shown below.

10 Cards 1 Kit - The Stamps of Life March 2021 Card Kit
6 x 6 Paper Pad, Arteza, Card Kit, Flowers, Stamps of Life

The Stamps of Life March 2021 Card Kit – 10 Cards 1 Kit

10 Cards 1 Kit - The Stamps of Life March 2021 Card Kit

The Stamps of Life March 2021 card kit was released on March 15 and this kit is all about flowers! This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called Flowers2Layer as well as the add-on set, Extras4flowers2Layer. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the March Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life March card kit

The March card kit is called the “Sweet Moments” collection. The color pallet for this month is Cherry, Seaglass, Ocean, Poppy, Bubblegum, Lemonade, Marigold, Kiwi, and Powdered Sugar. This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets. (Note: This month’s kit came with Bubblegum cardstock instead of Green Apple which I assume is due to a supply shortage in cardstock.)

The paper pad is the Sweet Moments Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of flowers which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the Flowers3Layer set.

The card kit also comes with a Sweet Moments word die, epoxy dots, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set with two small flowers and matching dies, flower stickers, large flat back fabric buttons, idea card, a set of envelopes, and a large storage envelope to put everything in.

More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.
