Springtime Artist Trading Block

 I was in a swap with a friend from You Tube and we decided to make artist trading blocks with a spring theme.  This is what I made using papers from Graphic 45: Once upon a Springtime.

March Card Kit Part 5

The Stamps of Life card kit = so much fun in a box!

 I made this card for a new You Tube friend.  She subscribes to TSOL card kits too and we are exchanging cards using the March kit.




I wrapped some green seam binding around two of the wood veneer banners and tied them both with the tri-color twine.  The 3 black enamel dots are left-overs from a previous kit.  I hope she doesn't visit my blog today to see her card before it arrives in the mail!




My clear Wink of Stella pen pooped out on me and didn't leave much sparkle on the stars. I will go back and add just the smallest dots of Stickles on each one.  The stars need to sparkle and shine!

I hope you enjoyed the cards I made from the March card kit from The Stamps of Life!  I'm looking forward to the April kit (I heard, shhhhh - top secret - the paper is yummy!  Waiting is so hard to do!)

March Card Kit Part 3

All of these fun goodies came in the March card kit from The Stamps of Life!


 And here is a sampling of what I made from this kit!



Those little wood veneer banners are sweet!
The scraps from the patterned paper above were used to make a new background paper below.  Punch - paste, punch-paste, punch-paste!

March Card Kit Part 2

This photo shows all the goodies found in the March card kit from The Stamps of Life!



And here are two more cards I made from the kit!




I stamped on one of the wood veneer banners from the kit and tied some of the tri-color twine at the top.




 Two of my favorite patterned papers from the "Hello Friend" paper pad included in this month's card kit.  And the green ribbon with white dots is too cute for words!

Thanks for looking!  Two more cards will be posted tomorrow!

March Kit Club Part 1

 This is a picture of the content of the March Card Kit from The Stamps of Life
 You are looking at ribbon, twine, stamps, dies, embellishments, patterned paper and card stock all delivered in the cutest pink and white pizza style box!  TSOL has, by far, the best card kits available!  For the next several days I'll show you some cards I made using the contents from this box.




This card features the yummy green seam binding, tri-color twine and the "hello and shadow" dies.  The embossed layer in back used the Flower Burst embossing folder from Sizzix.



Besides the cute patterned paper in fun colors, this card features an enamel arrow, which is part of the card kit.  Oh, what fun I had with this kit!

I'll be back tomorrow with two more cards!

To/From

Well today is my birthday, so how appropriate that I am featuring a to/from tag.  Guess I'll have to buy myself a birthday present, wrap it up and use this tag on the package!   The to/from dies are part of a new release over at The Stamps of Life.

I made the tag into a card using the "Sizzix Tags Framelits with Stamps" set.  Here is the front of the tag card:




Yep, I had to fussy cut and use some more of the festive banners from Stephanie's patterned paper!  and check out the bling at the bottom of the tag!  You can find that at TSOL as well!

And here is the tag card when opened:




Now I'll just fill in the "To: me/From: me" and attach it to my present!

Thanks for looking!

Thinking of You!

I have another card to share with you today using another one of the newly released word dies from The Stamps of Life .  I love that Stephanie provides a shadow die to go along with her word dies.  That way you have a choice to use the shadow or not.   I used the word die and its shadow die on this Large Circle Flip-its card.  Here is the front of the card:




I love how the shadow gives the word some substance and makes the letters pop!  And here is the card after you "flip it" open!




Those cute and colorful banners were fussy cut from one of Stepahanie's exclusive patterned paper pads.  I love using them on my cards!   The "hello" greeting is from a new stamp set called "happy calligraphy2stamp".

Thanks for looking and please come back tomorrow to see another card featuring some new word dies!

Hi, Hi, Hi!

I'm excited to be able to share some cards I made as a design team member for The Stamps of Life .  Stephanie released some new word dies and I'll be sharing the cards I made over the next few days.  My card for today features the "hi" die!  I used the Triple Circle Flip-its dies for the card base, so I could say hi three times!




 Of course the pretty turquoise card stock and fun patterned papers are from TSOL too!
 I hope you'll come back tomorrow to see another card featuring more word dies from TSOL!

Thank you for stopping by!
