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 Stamps of Life September Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit 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!
