Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today we are teaming up with The Stamps of Life for a blog hop showcasing some of their adorable images! Your creativity will certainly be inspired after seeing all of the fun and beautiful cards our designers have created. Plus, make sure to visit The Stamps of Life’s blog for a giveaway they’re hosting (three stamp sets valued at $12.95 and under)! 🙂 Thank you so much to The Stamps of Life for providing all of us with beautiful product for the hop!

Hello Close-up
As soon as I saw the spiros2stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a card with the fun Spirograph-inspired images. The delicate images are mesmerizing and can be used in a variety of different ways. I kept my design simple by using purple and lavender inks and then accenting the stamped panel with a line of micro beads.

Hello Card

Supplies used: Spiros2stamp set from The Stamps of Life; whisper white and pool party cardstock from Stampin’ Up!; Memento ink pads (tuxedo black, grape jelly and lulu lavender) from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko; amethyst micro beads from Martha Stewart Crafts; paper trimmer from Fiskars; adhesive foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®; double-sided High Tack Tape from Xyron.

I love the little tickets that you get at carnivals and fairs and think it would be so fun to host a party where everyone gets a small bag filled with tickets. They could then redeem the tickets for prizes, snacks and games. The tickets2stamp set is just what is needed for a carnival-themed gathering.

Party Tickets Bag

Supplies used: Tickets2stamp set from The Stamps of Life; cardstock (pool party, Pacific point, real red, so saffron and Bermuda bay) from Stampin’ Up!; Memento tuxedo black ink pad from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko; sequins from Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.; Classic Ovals LG (#S4-110) die templates from Spellbinders? Paper Arts; mini adhesive dots from Elmer’s; E-Z Runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

  1. Beautiful projects! The ticket bag is such a great idea. So fun for a party!

  2. Ruth Halbach says:

    The ticket bag is very cute and the Hello card is so sharp, simple and adorable.

  3. Roseanna Crawford says:

    I love the Stamps of Life stamps, the card is clean and simple, the beads add a great touch of bling.
    The bag with the tickets is so cute.

  4. Kathleen weber says:

    What glue did you use on the sequins?

  5. Connie Brooks says:

    OMG, using glassine bags for party favors. I LOVE this idea. Going to be using this soon. Awesome idea. And yes, SOL has the best stamps and matching dies.

  6. V says:

    The purple card is pretty!

  7. Such a cute card – I LOVED my Spirograph as a kid (they are really tough to find these days!). And bonus points for working with micro breads – the last time I tried to work with those little suckers they went everywhere. Thanks for the chance to win! I don’t have any SOL sets in my collection yet (a tragedy, I know)

  8. jeanine says:
