weddings and babies, oh my! {The Stamps of Life}

Hello, my friends! Today I thought I'd share a few cards with you, if thats ok. (After all, it's kinda what I do around here.) :) Both of today's cards feature The Stamps of Life, by Stephanie Barnard. I've been working with Stephanie and The Stamps of Life since just after they opened. I had just had a baby, and adding a design team to my life sounded ridiculous. . . .but I couldn't resist. And I'm so glad I didn't! My love for TSOL just keeps growing, so today I have two cards to show you.

The first, features the wedding2celebrate stamp set. I used white pigment ink and stamped on chalkboard paper (I'm pretty sure it's from Echo Park's Capture This Black and White.) The circle pattern paper is Teresa Collins Something Wonderful.

This next card features The Stamps of Life set called morechalksayings2stamp. There are two of these chalk sayings stamp sets so far, and I just adore them both. Chalkboard art continues to be really trendy, and the coordinating banner dies are a lot of fun too! (You can find the original chalksayings2stamp  on the TSOL website as well.)

I just gave this card to a sweet friend of mine who is about to give birth to her second child. I thought it was perfect, because those final days are so exciting, nerve-racking, beautiful, and stressful - all rolled into one! This patterned paper is also from the Something Wonderful collection. . . .fun fact? Teresa Collins herself, handed me this paper pack, when I was in Utah for the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine editorial board meetings. We visited the building that My Mind's Eye, Teresa Collins, and Hazel & Ruby share. (I'll admit. . . I was a little star-struck!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you're able to enjoy every moment of this beautiful day!
