Awesome Die Release!

I just love the 20th of the month because Stephanie releases cool dies from The Stamps of Life!

Today she released two new die sets that match previously released stamp sets.

I made this card with Island2visit and the new matching dies.


And...if that wasn't enough to make you giddy....she also released new dies that match the Summer4fun stamp set!


I used the Basic Step Up Card Die too!

Check out the gallery for lot's of inspiration!!

Christmas Gift Tags

 The Stampendous team members are doing a little Christmas in July with Bo Bunny papers this week.

I decided to start working on my Christmas tags.
I will put these on my families packages under the tree but they all know that they are to take them off the package and return them to me for reuse!


I created tags out of my Bo Bunny paper.
This tag was made with Owl be Home Cling Stamps and dies.


This cutie was created with Seated Elf Cling Stamps and dies set.




And for my final tag I used Smiling Snowman Cling Stamps and dies set.


All the colored images were done with Prisma color pencils, and blended with gamsol and blending stumps. 

You can check out more inspiration on the Stampendous Blog!

Happy Tuesday!

I have another rainbow card to share with your today!

I made this using the Rainbow2stamp set from The Stamps of Life.


I used the Stand up circle card die for this card.
This is how it looks when it is closed up and ready to mail!

I colored the rainbow with the Solids4rainbows stamp set.



The paper is from the Happy Collection paper pad.

I die cut the clouds out of Powdered Sugar Felt.

Such a fun card that anyone would love to receive!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Holiday Place Cards

I know i'ts only July and seems a little early to think about Christmas but I try to knock out the easy projects in the summer so that I am not doing them last minute during the hustle and bustle of the season.

I thought it would be fun to make crafty table decorations this year!

I'm not quite done but I'll share what I've completed so far.

First I am making these quick and easy place cards
with Stampendous stuff..


I started by cutting the base out of vanilla paper. 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" and folding in half


I stamped and die cut the gifts using stamps and dies from the new Seated Elf Cling Stamps and Dies. This fun Bo Bunny paper means no coloring on this project!



I added a layer of Bo Bunny paper to the tags and then a slightly smaller layer of vanilla paper.
I stamped the names with letters from the Vintage lowercase stamp set. 


I also made some napkin holders to match the placecards.



Both of these are projects the kids or grand kids could help you with!

I started by cutting a toilet paper roll into 3/4" pieces.



I cut a 1" by 6" strip of Bo Bunny paper out and ran it through my Xyron to add adhesive to the back.  Then I wrapped it around the ring.



The I glued the previously die cut gifts to the ring and wala!
A cute napkin holder is ready!


These projects are quick and easy to make and will make your table look great this season!

Hope you enjoyed them!

Baby Shower

My daughter finally got through the first trimester and made it Facebook  official so I am thrilled to share that my daughter is going to make me a grandma for the first time in January!

Things have changed since I had my kids...apparently they can tell the sex with a blood test waaaay earlier than when I had my kids!

So....we know it's a boy and since she lives in SC we are bringing her out for one last trip to CA before school starts (she's a teacher).  And that means we are throwing a early shower which means I got to make shower invites!


I made 24 of these!
Luckily this adorable Crawling Baby Boy is quick and easy to color!


I colored the image with Prisma color pencils. (peach & pink) and blended with gamsol and blending stumps. I used copic marker B000 to highlight the diaper.  I colored the sentiment with B41 copic marker.

I used classic rectangle and classic oval scallop and regular dies from Spellbinder.
The adorable bottle is Jolee's Boutique stickers.


If you have any mass production baby cards to make this stamp and the girl version are the perfect image because it's quick and easy to color!

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration.
