CardMaker-The Stamps of Life blog hop!!!


Hello Everyone!!

Welcome to CardMaker- The Stamps of Life Bloghop!!
Today, we're creating with The Stamps Of Life team for this special hop.
If you are new to The Stamps of Life products...please check them out HERE. I'm sure you will like the gorgeous stamps and dies collection!!!

I picked two fabulous stamp sets for my cards...

For the first card  I used watercolors with the Scribbles2stamp set .
Those sketchy circles look great as flowers. I heat embossed them on watercolor paper and then colored them with Distress inks. I loooove how turned out!!!
The sentiment is from Phrases2say set.
Just added few vellum stems and leaves for a fun look. 

Next I used the same stamps for a totally different look...
I heat embossed the background and sponged distress inks. I used silhouette cut file to cut the circular sentiment panel. The sentiment is again from the Phrases2say set...this set is full of great sentiments!!!

I also used the stamps for the inside of the card...
Inside sentiment is from Scribbles2stamp set.

These cards are for the following challenges...
Simon Says Stamp - Embossing.
Pile It On -Embossing.
That Craft Place -Anything Goes.

Hope you all like my cards!
I had a blast creating with The Stamps of life stamps!!!
 I'm sure you will see me using these sets a lot in future.
