SOL Dragonfly Card

 photo SOL November 2015 Two.jpg
Have a quick post for a card I did with a Stamps of Life dragonfly die. I trimmed some watercolor paper and used watercolor crayons (by Staedtler) to create the background. Then I cut the dragonfly out of watercolor paper and black cardstock. Did the wings the same way as the background. Stamped a quick sentiment and glued some sequins on for a fast and easy card. The pretty gingham bow is by The Stamps of Life too. It doesn't get any easier than this folks. Stayed tuned for more fast and easy from yours truly.

The Stamps of Life Banner Cards

 photo SOL November 2015 Five.jpg
There is a new stamp set at The Stamps of Life called banners4planners. Check out my two card samples as well as the ones in the Stamps of Life gallery. On the birthday card above, I stamped the banner image on patterned paper and cut out the little owls from Stamps of Life paper. The sentiment is also from patterned paper from Stamps of Life plus the cardstock and twine. Fast and easy card which is the way I like them. :)

I used the polka dot banner stamp on this card which I stamped in red. Each was trimmed closely and adhered along the top along with twine from The Stamps of Life. The patterned paper, cardstock and twine are also by the Stamps of Life.
banners4planners could be used for a lot of different occasions and are such fun. You know you need them. :) Hope your week has been a good one. My hubby and I were able to sneak away one afternoon this week and see The Martian. I had read the book a few months ago and was eagerly awaiting the movie. Hubby had not read the book but needless to say we both enjoyed the movie. I always try to read the book before I see the movie. How about you? Thanks for stopping by and visit again soon.

Stamps of Life Merry Christmas Dies

 photo SOL October 2015 Five.jpg
There are cute new Merry Christmas dies at The Stamps of Life. You can whip out a Christmas card in no time with these beauties. I used kraft cardstock for my card base and then used red and green cardstock for the words. The pretty wide red grosgrain ribbon is by The Stamps of Life too. I glued some sequins and twine bows in the lower right corner and like "magic" I had a fast and very easy card. You can see the die HERE. Thanks for stopping by...I'm headed outside to read and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

September SOL Release

 photo SOL September 2015 Stockings.jpg
I have a quick post for you about the September Stamps of Life release of stockings2stamp (with matching dies). There is also a coordinating set called patterns4stockings. See all the fun sample cards in the Stamps of Life galley.
Hope you have had a nice Labor Day. I have spent most of it "laboring" with some projects but I did manage time for fun too. I love reading and have been thinking of making myself a "reading nook." You know a place to curl up and relax with a good book. So to make it happen, I ordered a very comfortable chaise lounge for our bedroom. We have a wall of windows where the light is wonderful for reading in the mornings or afternoons. My chair was delivered today (after being order back in July)! Yea! So I spent the afternoon getting my new reading nook created. I guess you know where you will find me reading now. I may have to order the mug I saw which says "Go Away! I'm reading!" :) Happy Labor Day (or reading day)! :) Visit again soon....I have fun new cards to share with new Stamps of Life products. :)
