The Stamps of Life December Club Set Release


Hi everyone,

First up I have some news to share with you all …. I have been asked to join the Design Team for The Stamps of Life! How exciting is that!!! The Stamps of Life have lots of fun stamp sets and a number of them have coordinating die sets which I just love!

I can't wait to start sharing these awesome stamps with you all in future blog posts.


Being the 1st of the month it is time for the December Club Stamp set to be released from The Stamps of Life. This time round the stamp set being released is called Sampler2Love. If you are a member of the “Die Hard” club you will also receive the coordinating die set, otherwise you have to wait until the 20th of the month to order this set.

I have a couple of cards to share with you today using this stamp & die set. For my first card I had to play with my new Sizzix Fancy Frame #2 Flip-its Framelits … love love these new dies.

For my card I used the Sampler2Love stamp set along with the Hive4Bees stamps set and coordinating Bee Die set.


On the “flip side” of the centre panel I stamped another of the sentiments and the heart border from the Sampler2Love stamp set. I stamped the heart using Colorbox/Stephanie Barnard Strawberry Ink.

Stamps: Sampler2Love; Hive4Bees – The Stamps of Life
Paper: White; Black; Steampunk Spells DP – Graphic 45
Other: Black Ink; Colorbox/Stephanie Barnard Strawberry Ink; TSOL Banner Die Set; TSOL Bee Die Set; Sizzix Fancy Frames Flip-its #2 Framelits; Foam Tape; Copics.


For my second card today, I used the rectangle frame from the Sampler2Love stamp set to create the background on my card. The red ink used here is the Colorbox/Stephanie Barnard Strawberry Ink Pad.

The sentiment, layers for the sentiment and fishtail accent were all created using the Sampler2Love stamp set and coordinating die set.


For the inside of my card I used another sentiment & accent fishtail banners from the Sampler2Love stamp set and the coordinating die set.

I will post a couple more cards using this stamp set later in the month, but in the meantime you will find plenty of ideas from the other Design Team members in the Sampler2Love Gallery.

Stamps: Sampler2Love – The Stamps of Life
