Hello friends! There are two new flash sale items available today at The Stamps of Life! The first, that I’d like to share with you, is called the Beautiful Statement Set. This set includes both two dies and a variety of stamp sentiments and is exclusive to The Stamps of Life.
I just love all of the variations that you can do with this set. It’s so versatile and that word die is absolutely gorgeous!
For my first card, I started off by creating my stand-up base with the Sizzix Playful Stand-ups Card Die Set. I then added some patterned paper and sponged some SOL Seaglass Ink along the edges. I did the same with the flowers but used Lemonade Ink for the yellow portion of the flower and Kiwi Ink for sponging around the edges of the leaves. It’s not a necessary step, but I feel that it adds a bit more depth and life to your diecuts.
I used the Sizzix Triplits Dragonfly to diecut some dragonflies from white cardstock. On the second layer, I once again blended some Seaglass Ink around the edges. For the wings, I simply diecut my second layer again from 40lb Vellum and fussy cut the body away from the wings. I then glued the wings to each dragonfly and folded them slightly upward.
Here is a second example using the Beautiful Statement Set paired with mums2stamp and moremums2love. I colored the flower using TSOL Markers Set 1 and Set 2 and some water after I embossed it on water color paper with gold embossing powder.
The second item that I wanted to share with you today is the Sizzix Cupcake Fold-it. This die creates a cupcake that fits into an A2 sized envelope perfectly. It is super easy to use and makes very cute cupcake cards/invitations pretty quickly.
I did pretty much the same thing for this second one, except that I embossed some flowers onto white carstock using the flowerpower4backgrounds stamp and clear embossing powder. I then used the SOL Chocolate Ink over the top so that my flowers would be white and my frosting would be brown/chocolate.
And lastly, this card literally took me 5 minutes to make. I simply used some brown cardstock, patterned paper, white felt and voila!
I will be entering some of these into The Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
