Tea Set Dies

Happy Friday!

Today I have a fun card to share that uses a brand new die set from
The Stamps of Life.


The Tea4Two set has been out for ages!
It goes with the Moretea4us set.

But today, Stephanie is releasing the matching die set!



I used the Playful Stand up card die set for the card base.

All the paper is available from The Stamps of Life too!

You can see more great samples in the gallery.

Tall Poppy

Today I am sharing a tall skinny card that I made just to mix it up a little!

I stenciled the Tall Poppy Stencil on a white panel with Regular Embossing paste.  When the paste dried I replaced the stencil over the image and sponged ink on the image.  Then I cut the tall poppy into 3 2" squares.


The card base was created by folding a 8" x 8 1/2" panel of orange cardstock in half.

Then I adhered a yellow strip of cardstock on the left side of the card.
I punched a strip of green cardstock and then added it to the card.

I backed each of the stenciled panels with orange and green cardstock and then added them to the card.

The final touch was the yellow ribbon.

Snowmen and snowflakes

Happy Thursday!

It's been a while since I shared a stencil project so I thought with all the crazy weather we have been having across the country this card would be perfect!

I created this card using stencils from Stampendous.


Directions:
1. Stencil the snowflake cascade on a pink panel with regular embossing paste and set aside to dry
2. stencil the snowman on a white die cut circle panel with regular embossing paste and set aside to dry
3. Fold a 11" x 4 1/4" in half to create the card base
4. tie ribbon around the snowflake panel and adhere to the card base
5. replace the stencil on the snowman and sponge Splendor ink on the image to color
6, Back with a larger pink circle panel and then with a larger scallop edge dark pink panel
7. Adhere to card with 3D foam squares
Here's a closer look at this cutie!

Happy Birthday...Make a Wish!

Hello All!

We are half way through and I hope your week is going well!

We had another birthday at the office so I created another BIG card!

For this one I folded and 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock in half to create a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base.

It's just big enough for all 20 of us to sign!!


The image is a fun stamp from Art Impressions.



The sentiment is from the Birthday with Sizzix stamp set from The stamps of life.

The paper is from my favorite paper pack from Hobby Lobby.


I hope your enjoyed my card today and maybe got a little inspiration!

I'll be back tomorrow with some snowy inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!
