Thank You featuring Foxes2stamp from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a card that features the new fox from Foxes2stamp. It also showcases the newest paper from the Stamps of Life July Card Kit.

I colored the fox with pencils and die cut him using the Oval Die set. I inked around the edges with Chocolate Ink

Next, I trimmed several pieces of patterned paper from the July card kit called Love Life and added all of it to an A2 card base of Chocolate card stock.

I tied a piece of thick twine at the top and stamped Thank you onto Gingersnap card stock. Then I added a trio of Gingersnap epoxy stars that were in a previous card kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dream Big Dreams featuring The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

I was in the mood to watercolor today on my card:

I stamped out my scene using Licorice Archival ink onto watercolor paper. Then I pressed my Mini Ink pads onto a flat surface to create my painting palette.

I then watercolored my images and while that was drying I stamped Dream Big Dreams onto Pixie card stock.

I mounted this onto Banana and an A2 Sky card base.

I added Pixie gingham ribbon and some Banana epoxy dots to finish it off.

Happy Birthday with Foxes2stamp from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Today's card has a fun little fury friend:

Here is the fox from foxes2stamp. I colored it with pencils.

I started this card by die cutting the tag using Tag Holder set in Blueberry. I used the included pieces to cut the tag and the stitched Pixie patterned paper. You can use  this set on a card or on a package. 

I stamped the Cupcake and die cut it with the Cupcake triplits die. These two coordinate together perfectly!

 I layered the tag on an A2 card base with more patterned paper. I stamped the Pixie card stock with the swirl stamp from the Cupcake stamp set with Pixie ink.

The hat is from Hats for Critters. I cut it using Blueberry and Lemonade and used Adhesive Foam to pop it up.

Final steps were to stamp the "You're Foxy" with Blueberry and adding a piece of gingham ribbon.

Fireplace2stamp with The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Today's card features a cute fireplace.

I really wanted some topiaries to frame my fireplace so I used several dies to create them.

The long skinny die is from the Box Card die set, the green piece is part of Sizzix House Fold It and the present is from Sizzix gifts drop ins.

I cut the green pieces 4 times from Kiwi, the stem from Chocolate and the present in Ocean. I trimmed of the top of the present to get the base shape. However, you could easily hand cut something out. 

I created the fireplace by embossing it in white onto Gingersnap and die cut it out. I added the chocolate stems on either side.

I laid out where I wanted the topiaries to be and trimmed the chocolate pieces down.

I popped them with Adhesive foam.

I then stamped Happy Birthday from Foxes2stamp with Licorice Archival ink. I added a few epoxy hearts and tied some Kiwi twine on.

All of this was layered onto Cranberry and a piece of patterned paper from the HoHoHo pad.  This was added to an A2 card base of Ocean card stock.

Thank you for stopping by!

Yappy Birthday featuring House Fold-it from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

It has been hot, hot here in GA so I am dreaming of Fall with my card today!

I used the Sizzix House Fold It to create this adorable house! You can have the card open at the top or on the left side so it is very versatile. I cut a card base of white and then cut the house shape again with patterned paper and added that onto the white. 

I die cut the windows from Artichoke and Gingersnap card stock. The roof is also from Artichoke. 

I also stamped the small dog on Extra glossy card stock, colored it with markers and cut it out by hand. 

I added a few bushes and a cloud next. Did you see the cute chimney? I love the detail and the fact that we can make it any color we wish. 

Here is a peek at the inside. The stamps used on this card are from dogspotpudgie2.

Hey Corgeous featuring Corgis2stamp

Hi there!

I wanted to share a fun card today featuring the newest dog in The Stamps of Life animal family - corgis2stamp!

You will notice this corgi slides! I used the Penny sliders for this.

I used Ocean card stock for the slider part and the tree comes from the new Sizzix House Fold it set. I inked the edges of the Kiwi treetops with Kiwi ink to add some dimension. 

The corgis were colored with pencils and that cute puffy rainbow sticker is from a previous Card kit.

Here is the inside:

The Corgis are here from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

There is a new pet addition over at The Stamps of Life called Corgis2stamp!

I began with an A2 base of Seaglass card stock and added a layer of Guava card stock. The house patterned paper comes from the Kindness Pad. You can see a little green grass behind the pups. That was cut from Green Apple card stock and grass Border Die.

I pulled out one of my favorite sets, Sizzix Word Circle Dies. This is such a versatile set as it has a large circle die as well as smaller circles. You can do so much with circles!

I die cut the "You're So sweet" from Guava and layered onto Powdered Sugar circle.

Lastly, I tied on a piece of Kiwi Seam Binding and added a little sparkle.
