Hello Friends!

Yesterday we had a peek at Vanessa's Monkey and today Leslie is up on the blog with her Monkey Pudgie Samples! Here's Leslie!

Hello and Happy Friday!  It’s a release day at The Stamps of Life and one of the new releases today is monkeypudgie18 stamp and die set…. he’s a cutie!
For my card base, I used TSOL Exclusive Flip-its Card Circle and pineapple2stamp dies for the sunglasses on my “tropical” monkeys. The arrows I used are included in Sizzix Scalloped Circle Stand-ups Card Die Set.

Here’s another fun card that would be perfect for an Anniversary card or Valentine… I made my vines using Sizzix Basic Step-ups dies and for the added heart, Sizzix Dotted Hearts.
That’s all for today, but be sure to stop back in the next day or two to see the other two new releases!  All supplies I used to make my cards can be found at The Stamps of Life.  Have a wonderful day and until the next time.
Happy Stamping!

House Fold-it Box

Hello Friends, 

Grab a cozy drink and snack and have a good read on how Designe Team Member Katherine created this new House Fold-it Box for the Seasonal House Challenge! 

Hi there, it's Katherine!
Today I have one more House Fold-it card to share!

I wanted to make a box to add to the back of my house to hold treats. I couldn't figure out how to make a box (LOL) that I liked and the other morning I woke up and thought about the Handle Box die! It fits perfectly behind the House front.
Here is how I made it:

I ran the Handle box die through my Big Shot Plus twice using Licorice cardstock.

I then cut off the top of each box and adhered them together.

I began decorating it by adding ribbon and Candy Corn that I stamped and colored.

Then I moved to the house decorations. I stamped the Web with Powdered Sugar Ink and let it dry. I cut the roof as well as the tree pieces from Kiwi and Grape cardstock. I blended ink onto the edges to add some definition. I stamped some birds in the trees and cut the door.

I stamped Boo and added it to the chimney and tied some twine at the top.

Once it was all ready, I added some strong adhesive to the box and assembled it.

Now, time to fill the box! I chose candy corn to coordinate with all the candy corn I added to the sides.

But mostly because candy corn is my favorite Halloween treat!

After I filled a cellophane bag, I tied with seam binding and added a Dotted oval  stamped with Treats for you.

A fun twist on this House Fold it! Are you loving the more in depth blog posts we've been adding? If so, leave us a comment!

Happy Stamping!

NEW Large Bow

Hello Friends, 

Kristine is up on the blog today to share her cute Squirrel Bow Project! 

I have another card today that features the new Large Bow Die.
I used the 5 x 7 Square Flip It card die for the base.

Here is how the card looks when it is flipped open.
Here is a comparison of all three dies that are available from The Stamps of Life.
Make sure you stop by the gallery and check out more samples!
Happy Stamping!

House Fold-it Challenge

Hello Friends, 

This month, The Stamps of Life is hosting a Seasonal House Fold-it Challenge! To participate, create a seasonal House Fold-it (Halloween Fall or Christmas) and post your project on Instagram. Tag it with the hashtag #thestampsoflife. A random winner will be chosen on 10/1 from all tagged posts.

Look at this fun festive House Fold-it that design team member Katherine made! I'll let her tell you all about how she made it!
I made a Christmas house with the Christmas Mouse Stamp set available at HSN.

I die cut the house pieces from patterned paper and Gingersnap. I used Square diesAcetate and Adhesive Foam to create my shaker.
 Isn't he so cute?
I made sure the mouse fit in my window and glued him down:
I added a small pile of Christmas colored sequins before adhering everything down:
I die cut and heat embossed the banner in gold. 
Here it is all together. I used sequins for the fireplace. 
Here is the inside:
I can't wait to see what everyone makes with this fun die set!

Hope you enjoyed Katherine's tutorial!

Happy Stamping!
