Goodies4Toast Spinner Card featuringThe Stamps of Life

Hi there!

It is hard to believe that October is almost over! I wanted to share another card I made using Goodies4Toast:

I decided to make a spinner card. I began by die cutting my pieces from Gingersnap using the Grid Die. I glued the two pieces together and punched a 1/2 inch hole in each grid square:

I added a piece of patterned paper from this month's Club kit:

I created the spinner pieces by adding two pennies between the spaces. I trimmed the Adhesive Foam into small circles between the pennies to allow them spin and move. Then I added the eggs and avocados on top. 

I placed more foam on the back of my card and added it to patterned paper and an A2 card base of Gingersnap.

I stamped the Dotted Rectangle from Candy card stock. I added a Gingham ribbon and a few epoxy dots and a heart.

It has been several years since ink colors have been added to the line so I just had to make a card to celebrate!

The  Elephant pudgie was added with Adhesive Foam:

Merry Christmas box from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Today's project features the new Limited Edition Merry Christmas 2018 Die:

I started by cutting my Box twice from patterned paper. If you don't own a treat box die, this is the one for you! I adhered the two pieces together and trimmed off the top of the box. It leaves this cute container. I punched holes on each end and tied ribbon through to hold a bag of candy.

I cut the Merry Christmas from Sky and Cranberry and popped it on with Adhesive Foam.

I decided that every package needs a bow, so I added on the other side this adorable Bow also cut with Cranberry.

I recently made a Halloween house box using the Box die- you can see the blog post on that HERE.

Congratulations featuring Toast2Stamp and Goodies4Toast

Hi there!

I am sharing a card I made using this month's Club set called Toast2stamp and its companion set, Goodies4toast:

I cut the card base using the Sizzix Step Up Cute as a Bug set from Candy card stock. I cut the layering pieces using Lemonade and paper from this month's paper pad that is included in the Card kit.

Now for the decorating part! I stamped and die cut all the eggs, toast, avocado and toaster and colored them with my Copic markers. I die cut them and added to the card. 

One fun thing to note is that the Toaster die allows you to cut the slits into the toaster so you can add the pieces making it look like they are popping out! 

I love the avocado and eggs! 

I tied on a ribbon of Lemonade seam binding and stamped Congratulations at the bottom. 

Thanks for stopping by!
