CardMaker & Stamps of Life Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the CardMaker Magazine/The Stamps of Life Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from Kristine Reynolds blog, but if you find a broken link along the way, you can always return to CardMaker Magazine Blog for the full hop list.

This was actually my first introduction to The Stamps of Life and I LOVE the quality of the stamps. They have a wide arrange of stamps from trendy to flowers to cutesy.
I absolutely love this Crayon2stamp set.


The stamp set not only comes with the adorable Crayon stamps, 
but also some fun greetings...
Tickled Pink, Green with envy, Blue without you. 
This stamp set is a must have for lots of occasions.


This little cutie is stamped with Tiles2stamp. So many fun things you can do with this set.
Along with the "tiles", this set also includes a couple of greetings and adorable backgrounds sized perfectly for the rectangles.


Though you can't tell by the picture, I have stamped this card with Encore Metallic ink and boy does it shine...just like the ribbon. :)

The Stamps of Life are generously hosting a giveaway of three stamp sets ($12.95 value or less) to one winner, so be sure to comment on each stop along the way!  

Hope you enjoyed.

Crayons hold a special place in my heart too - when I was little my favorite gift was ones of those boxes of 64 Crayola crayons with the metallics inside and the sharpener in the back. I like that crayon image as well and all the fun 'colorful' sayings that accompany it. I don't have any SOL sets in my collections yet, but when I do, this set will be among the first I order! As a math teacher, I really like the geometric feel of your thank you card as well.
