The Stamps of Life Cards

Hello there.  Today I have three cards to show.  I have fallen in love with The Stamps of Life stamps by Stephanie Barnard.  I have joined the Die Hard Club over at The Stamps of Life.  That means that I not only get the new stamp for the month, but a coordinating die set too.  I love them.  All of the dies are made by Sizzix just for Stephanie's stamps.

The first card uses the sets Froggy2Love and Sayings4froggy.

This set comes with an outline image of the frog as well as a full color image.  I stamped the full color image first with Memento Bamboo Leaves and then used the outline stamp on top with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The lily pad is done with Distress Ink Peeled Paint.  As you can see, I used the die set that coordinates.  The sentiment is from the Sayings4Froggy set.

I am entering this card in the Hiding in My Craftroom challenge "Critters".

 This cute set of boots comes in the boots4rain set and the zebra striped part is in the patterns4boots set.  I stamped the outline image first in Memento Tuxedo Black and then added the pattern in Primrose Petals from SU. The raindrops are in the stamp set as is the rain puddle, which I created using three different shades of blue Distress Ink.

This is my first "Card in a Box" card.  It looked hard to me at first, but it's really not.  I love the way it turned out.  This set, called crazy4daisy, was a monthly club set and came with the dies.  I wanted a more defined look, so I hand cut the flowers.  The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and I used Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles to make the layers. I really love the way this one came out.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate the time y'all take to come see me.  Have a wonderful day and God bless.
