Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline card that I made using the brand new vertical “Thanks” word die from The Stamps of Life. This word die can fit nicely on a slimline card base. It can also fit on an A2 size card. I also used the Rounded Corner Slimline Die Set from The Stamps of Life and the Mums2Stamp stamp set.
To see how I made this card, watch my tutorial here:
I got to play with the 108 set of Arteza Colored Pencils. In my video, I will give you my first impressions of the Arteza colored pencils and make a shaker card. I will also use the Arteza Holographic Glitter and Foam Mounting Tape. The stamps that I colored came from the Mermaid2Stamp, Shells2Stamp, and Dolphins2Stamp sets from The Stamps of Life.

The Stamps of Life September 2020 card kit was released on September 15 and I’m excited to share with you the 9 cards and 1 tag that I made with this kit. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called PolarBear2Stamp as well as the add-on set, Extras4PolarBear. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the September Card Kit Club.
The September card kit is called the “Party On” collection. The color pallet for this month is Spearmint, Green Apple, Kiwi, Strawberry, Cranberry, Storm, Cloud, Gingersnap, 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 Party On Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of the polar bear die cuts and accessories (winter hat, present, scarf) which match the monthly stamp set, PolarBear2Stamp, and the add-on set, Extras4PolarBear. The images can be die cut with the shadow dies from the die sets. In total, there are four polar bear die cuts, 4 scarves, 4 presents, and 2 winter hats that can be used on your cards.
The card kit also comes with a Party On word die, a scallop border die with shadow, epoxy dots, chipboard pieces (2 banners and several presents), two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set, two sheets of glitter alphabet stickers, idea card, and a set of envelopes.
As a special bonus, The Stamps of Life is including TWO FREE dies this month! Ken is including two freebie die sets in every card kit through December 2020. My two freebies were the Wreath2Stamp dies ($16.41 value) and the Beautiful Card Kit Die ($10.95 value).
