Dotted Fancy Frames from The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

The Black Friday sale is going on over at The Stamps of Life!

Today's card features the new Sizzix Fancy Dotted Frames set:

I cut an A2 Candy card base and layered on a piece of Lemonade card stock and patterned paper. 

I tied Guava striped ribbon on before I mounted those pieces to the card base.

I stamped Happy Birthday in Ocean using Stamps4fancylabel on Candy card stock. This stamp set has some terrific sentiments including baptism and wedding and it fits these new dies perfectly.

I layered this onto a lemonade and ocean dotted frame die cut.

Here is the inside using a stamp from a previous Card club kit:

Stephie Doll from The Stamps of Life

Hi there! I am sharing a card I made using the new set called Stephiedoll.

I started this card by cutting a piece of cloud border from Powdered Sugar. By doing this, I created a stencil. I blended the Sky ink on my paper:


I layered the cloud paper onto Candy and a Guava A2 card base. I cut a piece of grass from Kiwi and blended ink at the edges. 

Now for the star of the card - Stephi doll! She is so cute and large, which I love! She fills the card but you could also add her to banners or other projects. I decided to create a Stephanie doll, in honor of the owner, Stephanie Barnard. She has beautiful blond hair and loves pink so I colored her t-shirt and added the letters, TSOL, which is short for The Stamps of Life!

I colored some jeans and added brown shoes with pink laces.


I cut the sweet dog from Gingersnap and added it to a Chocolate shadow.  The set also includes a collar so I made mine from Candy.

I stamped Hello, my friend with Licorice Archival ink on Guava


The sun was cut from Lemonade and Banana and popped up with Adhesive Foam


Here is the finished card:


Here is a peek at the inside:

Bear Hugs to You featuring The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

Today's card features the adorable Bear Pudgie from The Stamps of Life:


I had two pieces of patterned paper on my desk with one containing an oval cut out so I decided to use it! I layered them together and add to an A2 midnight card base.

I stamped, cut and colored my bear. I cut flowers using the new Cherry and Cantaloupe felt. I have been having the best time adding these new colors to projects. I added some chocolate pearls to the center of each flower.


Next, I die cut the sentiment from Blueberry and Kiwi.


Here is a glimpse of the inside - I love you Beary much was stamped with Kiwi ink.


I added Kiwi dotted ribbon for my final touch.
