Squirrels2love – The Stamps of Life

December 3, 2017

I hope you are all having a relaxing weekend!  For me, this time of the year gets pretty hectic with Christmas decorating, planning and shopping.  I wanted to quickly take a break from the Christmas-themed cards and share with you a few cards that I made using the The Stamp Set of The Month from The Stamps of Life.

Squirrels2love Stamp Set

This set is called Squirrels2love and it comes with a bunch of sweet scripty sentiments.  This set would work fabulously for Valentine’s Day but it is also perfect for birthdays or friendship cards.

For my first example, I created a sweet little pop-up box card.  I used the Sizzix Box Card Set for my base and added some patterned paper panels from the SOL Good Times Patterned Paper Pad.  I added some grass using the grass die from the Sizzix Tree Step-ups Card Die Set.  For my images, I stamped them onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  Once done, I adhered them to the inner panels in my box card.
For my second example, I made a standard A2 sized card using only one of the squirrels.  Isn’t he so cute holding his bouquet of flowers?  I started this card by first created my base with a mix of white cardstock and patterned paper (again from the Good Times Patterned Paper Pad).  I added a Dotted Circle die cut and lightly blended some Color Box Seaglass Ink onto this circle.  
I then added my squirrel using some 3D foam squares.  For my sentiment, I stamped and diecut a banner from white cardstock using the Morechalksayings2stamp Stamp Set and coordinating Banner Dies.  I colored this banner with Copic Sketch Markers and then adhered it with some foam adhesive squares.
I will be entering the box card into the following challenge:
