The Stamps of Life May 2020 Card Kit – 10 Cards 1 Kit

10 Cards 1 Kit The Stamps of Life May Card Kit

The Stamps of Life May 2020 card kit was released on May 15 and I’m excited to share with you the 10 cards that I made with this kit. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called tortie2stamp. There are so many fun products in the May card kit.

The Stamps of Life May Card Kit

The color pallet for this month is banana, green apple, blue jay, spearmint, ocean, gingersnap, cherry, blueberry, and powdered sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four powdered sugar cardstock sheets. The petite paper pad is the Special Friend Collection and comes with 24 double sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of turtles in various sizes that match the monthly stamp set, tortie2stamp, which can be die cut with the corresponding shadow dies from the tortie2stamp die set and the moretorties2stamp die set. There are a total of 16 turtles that can be die cut. This makes for a lot of quick and easy cards!

The card kit also comes with a flower die set, a sentiment stamp set, a “Special Friend” word die, epoxy dots, 9 chipboard sentiment pieces, flower puffy stickers, two ribbon (green apple and blueberry), idea card, a large storage envelope to put everything in, and a set of envelopes. 

As a special bonus, starting this month, The Stamps of Life is including TWO FREE die sets in every card kit through December 2020. Let me just say that these are not small dies…Nope! They are large die sets! The two free items in my kit are the apple dies ($16.41 value) that match the apple2stamp set and the circle stitched only dies ($18.99 value).  That a $35 value in FREE gifts! Every card kit club member may receive different freebies.

More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.

Guitar Shaker Card

Guitar Cards

Today on my blog I am sharing some cards that I made using the guitar dies from The Stamps of Life. These dies go along with the stamp set, Guitars2Play, which was previously released. The stamps did not have dies, so now they do! For my cards, I did some paper piecing to create the guitars.

For my first card, I also used some circle dies to create a record as a die cut image on the card. I just love how it turned out with the two guitar die cuts added to the card.

For my second card, I created a shaker card using the guitar dies and the dotted star dies.

UPDATE: The small “You Rock” word die used on these cards is not available in the guitar die set. It came with my design team shipment, but The Stamps of Life decided to not include it in the final packaging. Another option is the large “You Rock” word die. Here’s a link – https://thestampsoflife.com/you-rock-dies.html

The die set comes with the large die to make the box. It also comes with layering pieces for the top and sides of the box.

Circle Dots Stencil Birthday Card

LisaMears_CircleDotStencil_Logo

Hello! Today I am sharing a fun birthday card that I made using the Circle Dots stencil from The Stamps of Life. In addition to the stencil, I also used the pinatas2stamp and matching dies.

I started with a piece of powered sugar cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. To create the fun background, I placed the stencil on top of the cardstock and ink-blended the following color inks — cantaloupe, kiwi, seaglass, and sunshine.

Using Spectrum Noir Finesse Noir Black ink, I stamped the piñata image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers. I selected Copic markers that matched closely to the inks that I used for the background. The die cut the piñata with the piñata shadow die from the Pinanta2Stamp dies and adhered it with dimensional foam to the front of the card. I also used the Pinanta2Stamp dies and die cut the star shapes out of the cardstock colors –  sunshine, kiwi, and seaglass. I adhered the star pieces to the centers of the circle dots stencil on the card layer.

I stamped the sentiment with Licorice ink directly onto the background. The sentiment is from the Pinanta2Stamp stamp set. I adhered cantaloupe epoxy dots to the middle of the stars.

The entire card layer was adhered to a piece of cantaloupe cardstock cut to an A2 size card base which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Supplies:

  1. Inks – Cantaloupe, Kiwi, Seaglass, Sunshine,
