New Stamps and Dies at The Stamps of Life

Good morning!  My crafting time lately has been pretty sporadic, but I've managed to sneak in some projects here and there.  I've been doing some coloring, and have some cute things colored up and ready to go on a card, so hopefully I'll have some more projects complete and ready to share very soon.  Today, I thought I would share the latest projects that I've had the chance to complete.  These new images from The Stamps of Life were sure a lot of fun, because the gave me a chance to break out the Copics and do so me coloring!  I LOVE to color... anyone who knows me knows that is my favorite part of the creative process.  

So, who doesn't love PB&J?  Ah, I know there's probably plenty of people out there that don't go for the real thing, so let me rephrase that.  Who doesn't love sweet and adorable PB&J images to work with?  I love these, and the matching dies make creating with these stamps a breeze!  You can stamp, color, paper piece, or why not make it a combination of them all?  It's totally up to you, but you can bet that you'll have a blast, however you decide to create with them!  Here's what I came up with.

For this card I used patterned paper with a homespun feel to it and added some sequin bling for fun.

Oh yeah!  I LOVE this sentiment from the racoon2love stamp set, and it was a perfect pairing with the pb&j2enjoy stamp set.  Paper piecing was what went on here with a little added shading using Copics.

Again, I kinda went with the homespun theme for this one.  Boy, was it ever tricky to shade each of those grapes individually, but it HAD to be done.  Little details like that just make them pop.

I've got a photo of my youngest son sitting in his high chair when he was about a 18 months old, and in it, he had fallen asleep after eating his PB&J.  He had PB&J smeared all over him!!  This stamp set is definitely going to be put to good use for a layout for that photo!  Another thing that just HAS to happen!  LOL!

I don't know if you know about it or not, but The Stamps of Life has a couple wonderful and very affordable clubs that you can join and these stamps and dies are from the Stamp Club and Die Hard Club.  Great stamps and high quality dies manufactured by Sizzix.  oh yeah!  You get special deals all month long for being a member, and the best deal of all is that by joining both clubs you'll have these stamps and dies coming to your door automatically each month.  No hassle.  Just open your mailbox and you're in business!   It's a sweet deal and you can read all about it HERE

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful and blessed day and Happy Stampin'!!
