Winter Pocket Banner - The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

I needed a new seasonal banner for my craft room so I decided to make a Winter one using the Pocket Banner from The Stamps of Life!
I cut all my Banner pieces from Powdered Sugar, Blue Jay and Sky card stock. I stamped snowflakes all over the Powdered Sugar with Sky ink.
I added Midnight 3.5 Inch letters next and popped the oval up with Adhesive Foam.
I just had to include a snowman! I stamped him with Sky, Green Apple, Strawberry, Licorice Archival and Tangerine ink. I die cut the arms and hat from Licorice card stock. I stamped several Blue Jay snowflakes around him.
After stringing the banner with Cloud striped ribbon, I added some Cloud seam binding between the letters.
Here is another look at the finished banner!

Sizzix Ice Cream Fold It

Hi there!

There is a new Fold-it over at The Stamps of Life -  Ice Cream!

Here are some step by step photos of how to came together. 







I cut all the pieces out and inked the edges of the ice cream scoop and cone. I adhered all the pieces onto a Gingersnap base. I added some ribbon and sprinkles!


Here is the inside:

I made a second card but this time turned it into a large bowl of ice cream! I made a larger card base to accommodate all this yumminess!

I used the Cherry die for my bowl:
I cut the ice cream from Cantaloupe, Candy and Cherry card stock. I stamped each ice cream and the bowl. I couldn't forget the cherry and sprinkles:

I cut the circle flip it base from Seaglass. The layering pieces are from the Laugh Paper pad. I stamped and die cut the anchor and sailboat using Seaglass, Blueberry and Strawberry. The circle was cut from Cloud and inked around the edges.

Heart Background dies from The Stamps of Life (Limited Edition)

Hi there!

There are still some limited edition Heart Background die sets available from The Stamps of Life!


I cut the heart out using my Big Shot. You are left with the heart outline in the card stock so now you have your own stencil!




This is what you are left with after blending! 


Here is a close up:


I cut the heart out from the Powdered Sugar and added it to a purple patterned paper rectangle. I layered that onto another piece of patterned paper and an A2 Powdered Sugar card base.

I cut the heart from Blue Jay and stamped the sentiment with Licorice Archival. The keys are cut from Pixie and Candy. I added a Guava ribbon and a trio of epoxy dots to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
