There is a cute new stamp set at The Stamps of Life called tshirt2stamp. I'm sharing a couple of samples I did with it today and just saying you might want to come back on the 7th for some more. Wink!
The first sample is called Birthday Girl and features Stamps of Life cardstock, patterned papers, twine and pink jeweled embellishment as well as the tshirt2stamp stamp set.
My second sample is a quick and easy one using a Sizzix flip-it card die along with Stamps of Life cardstock and ribbon. Hopefully you will get the idea. I'm not always sure of the best way to photograph the flip-it cards. :)Check out all the other great samples of this set at the SOL gallery.
We moved our youngest daughter back to college this weekend to her first apartment. She was excited to be out of the dorms. :) So I have a little quieter house to get used to again. This "mom" stuff is hard sometimes. :) Excited for her though and wishing I had had such a nice apartment when I went to college. It was so nice I didn't want to leave. Wink! This summer is flying by in a hurry but the nice cooler fall weather will be a welcome relief. Thanks for stopping by and stop by again soon (like on the 7th of August for another SOL stamp set). :)
I promised more popsicle card samples yesterday so here they are. Decided not to keep you waiting. :) In case you forgot, these were made with the new popsicle dies by The Stamps of Life. They go with pops2eat and patterns4pops stamp
sets. It's getting close to the 4th of July so I was feeling a little patriotic when I made them. Head on over to the gallery at Stamps of Life to check out other fun card samples with the pops2eat and patterns4pops. You can even enjoy a popsicle while you look at them. Wink.
Looks to be another hot day in Alabama...definitely popsicle weather! Thanks for stopping by and stay cool!
One of my favorite stamp sets at The Stamps of Life is pops2eat (plus its matching set called patterns4pops). Just fun stamps sets which remind me of my childhood...I mean did you ever get all the popsicles you wanted when you were a child? I definitely didn't. :) So how great is it that Stephanie released a matching die set for these stamps? I had a lot of fun with the new dies! Sharing a couple of my new popsicle cards today and will share more in a few more days. The card above has popsicles which were heat embossed. Heat embossing them makes them look almost "real." I also added some micro-beads at the top of each for "sprinkles." The pretty green ribbon plus pink cardstock are by The Stamps of Life too.
This card was done with several colors of ink by Stephanie (her Clearsnap dye ink pads). I used Banana, Tangerine and Guava for the popsicle colors. The patterned paper, twine and flowers are by The Stamps of Life too.
It is so hot at my house it is definitely popsicle weather. :) Going to buy banana popsicles on my next grocery run and then head outdoors to eat one (or two). Thanks for stopping by. Hope your summer is going well and don't forget the popsicles!
Time for the new patterns4whales Stamps of Life stamp set I promised on June 1st. Don't you just love the polka dot whales? I created the water on the polka dot whale card using vellum. I colored it blue from behind and applied some glitter Mod Podge for "sparkle." I created a frame using a Sizzix Framelit rectangle die which adds a little interest too. :)
The set also has chevron whales...how fun is that? The patterned paper is by Stamps of Life too and the blue chevrons reminded me of "waves"....plus they matched the whales. The anchor is from a punch by EK Success which I purchases several months ago.
This card only used the sentiments from patterns4whales and the whale die. Again I used some white vellum and stamped the waves which are colored from behind. The patterned paper is by Stamps of Life. I used Sizzix Framelits oval dies to create the diecuts and frame (plus foam tape for added dimension).
Last but not least (and my favorite) is a card which used the sentiments only plus whale die. The patterned paper and the pretty pink jewel embellishments are by Stamps of Life too. The yellow doily is a die from Sizzix.
Hope your day is going well. It is a beautiful hot day in northwest Alabama today. Perfect weather for escaping outside with a good book on the porch (which is where I'm headed).
There are new stamps at The Stamps of Life this month you are whaley going to love. Sorry for the pun but I couldn't resist. The set is whale2stamp and there is a matching die available for it too. I have one sample with the set but make sure you come back on June 7th to see four more whaley cute cards with the additional set release. Be sure to check out all the other pretty whale2stamp cards in the Stamps of Life gallery. Wish I could have shown them to you today but have to wait....but hey something to look forward to! :) The card below was created using the Sizzix Square Stand Ups die (658845). The cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and jewel embellishment are by The Stamps of Life too.
I'm shaking my head today as I can't believe it is already June 1st. This year is zooming by in a hurry. I'm having a great summer and hope you are too. Stop by again soon.
I promised more piggy "love" so here is the coordinating set for the May Stamps of Life release of piggyback2stamp.
This set is called morepiggyback2stamp and is cute, cute, cute. I LOVE the polka dot pig. :) Enjoy my samples below and don't forget to check out all the others in the SOL gallery.
I'll keep this post short and sweet. Busy but fun times at my house....my youngest daughter just completed her freshman year at college. So we are moving her back home for the summer from her dorm room today. Looking forward to spending time with her. :) Hope you have a fantastic weekend. The weather is beautiful here so I'm planning on spending mine outside! Until next time.....
