Alpha Fun

This week The {Stamps} of Life released 3 more sets, moreladybugs2love (one that coordinates with the ladybug set I used last week), a swirls background and this adorable Alpha4Fayleen set.  

If you've been to any of the stamps shows that The {Stamps} of Life has attended, you may have met Fayleen yourself as she attends many of them helping out.

Never can have enough love cards and this sentiment was perfect for what I had in mind.  I sewed my little banner on my cardstock and then embossed the little hearts from the ladybugs2love set in red.


This next card has to be one of my favorite color combinations.  I'm not sure what it is about the turquoise/orange/black combination but I am always turning to it.  (Maybe why the Teresa Collins-Tell Your Story patterned paper pack is one of my favorites).

I simple stamped the hello from the Alpha4fayleen set on my paper and used the mums2stamp and moremums2love to create a focal image.


Hope you enjoyed seeing the use of the new alpha set and if you want to see some more incredible creations, jump on over to The {Stamps} of Life gallery to see what others are doing with it.
