The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit – 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit - 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 card kit was released on December 15 and I just LOVE this kit! I think this has to be my all time favorite one! I’m so excited to share with you the 15 cards that I made with this kit. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called LoveBugs2Stamp  as well as the add-on set, MoreLoveBugs2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the December Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit Club

The December card kit is called the “With Love” collection. The color pallet for this month is Grape, Ocean, Green Apple, Blue Jay, Candy, Cranberry, Guava, Mint Chip, 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 With Love Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of love bugs and two sheets of flowers, all of which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the LoveBugs2Stamp dies and MoreLoveBugs2Stamp dies. In total, there are 12 flowers, 8 love bugs, and 12 happy mail die cuts. I love how these die cuts can be used to make quick and easy cards.

The card kit also comes with a With Love word die, heart chipboard embellishments, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set, arrow die, grape flower felt embellishments, glitter epoxy dots, idea card, and a set of envelopes.

As a special bonus, The Stamps of Life is including two freebie die sets in every card kit through December 2020.  My two freebies were the Sampler Dies ($16.41 value) and the Happy Birthday Word Dies ($14.95 value).

28 Christmas Cards | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage North Pole Collection


Today I’m sharing 28 cards I made using Simple Stories Simple Vintage North Pole Collection. I used the 6 x 8 paper pad, chipboard stickers, ephemera bits and pieces, and the 12 x 12 Basics Kit which includes six papers that match the collection.

I love the vintage theme of this collection. I made a total of 28 cards with this collection. For some of the cards, I was inspired by a card sketch and other designs I came up with on my own.

I brought in a few word dies and stamps for sentiments. I also brought in some circle dies, some card bases, and a few pieces of red cardstock from my stash.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.

Hi everyone!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a thinking of you card. I ink-blended the sky background and colored the flower images from the MoreLoveBugs2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The sentiment is from the newly released heartwords2stamp from The Stamps of Love. This set includes five sentiments (Miss You, Thinking of You, Hello, Thank you, and Best Wishes) that can be die cut with the matching dies. Each sentiment includes small hearts that extend beyond the edges of the letters.

26 Christmas Cards with Recollections Say Freeze 6 x 6 Paper Pad
6 x 6 Paper Pad, Christmas, Christmas Cards, Michaels, Recollections

26 Christmas Cards | Michaels Recollections “Say Freeze” 6 x 6 Paper Pad & Stickers

Today I’m sharing 26 cards I made using Recollections “Say Freeze” 6 x 6 paper pad, sticker pack, traditional Christmas die cut stickers, and matching solid cardstock.

26 Christmas Cards with Recollections Say Freeze 6 x 6 Paper Pad

I love pattern paper pads and I love to make Christmas cards. I saw this collection at Michaels craft store and ended up purchasing it on Black Friday for under $8. I wanted to see what I could do with this collection and ended up making 26 cards, 5 of which are duplicates. For some of the cards, I was inspired by a card sketch and other designs I came up with on my own.

This is such a great way to make a bunch of quick cards. I was going for a very simple look using only a few supplies. I mainly used only the paper and stickers in the collection, however, there are a few cards where I brought in some circle dies and scalloped circle dies to use on the cards. I also brought in a few pieces of green solid cardstock from my stash.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.

Enjoy!

12 Days of Christmas Craft Series - Day 8 Holiday Pillow Boxes

12 Days of Christmas Crafts Series – Day 8 – Holiday Pillow Boxes

Hi everyone!

For Day 8 of my 12 Days of Christmas Craft Series, I will show you how to make these pillow boxes to put treats in. This is a perfect gift idea for a friend, co-worker, teacher, child, or from a Secret Santa.

I will use the Exclusive Pillow Box die set from The Stamps of Life and show you three ways to use this die. One ways is using it the traditional way. The second way is die cutting a shape out of the front of the pillow box and adhering acetate to the front so the treats show through the box. The third way is turning the pillow box into a handle box for larger treats.

To see how I made these, watch my YouTube Tutorial Here:
