Hi & Hello

Today is the next installment of the die set release for The {Stamps} of Life, the Wavy Border Die.  I loved playing with this die and was feeling so creative that I think I made about 4 cards with it this past weekend.

For my first card I went with a real Clean & Simple card using the Crayons2Stamp set.  I based the colors off the Dynamic Duos challenge (River Rock, Black + dessert option: brads) and the The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge (sketch with a spin-die cuts or punches).

I used the Wavy Border die set to accent my strip of River Rock across the card.

Card details:
Stamps: Crayons2Stamp from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: River Rock, Basic Black and Authentique Gathering
Embellishments: Wavy Border Die from The {Stamps} of Life, circle dies from Spellbinders, black brad from Designer Mix (Clear & Simple Stamps)

Since I haven't been able to play much with the Retro Sketches I sat down as soon as I saw it this week and went to work on creating my card.  For this card, I again used the larger of the wavy dies to create a strip across the card.  I randomly stamped my large panel using the Back2Basics set.

Card details:
Stamps: Back2Basics from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Gina K. Luxury White, Bordering Blue, Authentique Fresh
Inks: Such a Gray-cious Host, Red Couture and Bordering Blue
Embellishments: Wavy Border die set  and from The {Stamps} of Life, rhinestone brad, Sizzix flower embossing folder from The {Stamps} of Life
