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

The Stamps of Life March 2020 Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit  Tutorial

The Stamps of Life March 2020 card kit was released on March 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 pinatas2stamp.

There are so many fun products in the March card kit. 

The Stamps of Life March 2020 Card Kit Contents

The color pallet for this month is cranberry, kiwi, green apple, lemonade, banana, sky, midnight, gingersnap, and powdered sugar.  All of these colors will make for some great masculine cards! The kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four powdered sugar cardstock sheets.

The petite paper pad is the Surprise Collection and comes with 24 double sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes pinata images that match the monthly stamp set which can be die cut with the corresponding shadow die from the pinanta2stamp die set. There are a total of eight pinatas that can be die cut. This makes for some quick and easy cards!

The kit also comes with chipboard cactuses, colorful buttons, two ribbon (banana and cranberry), star stickers, a sentiment stamp set, and two dies — a large leaf die and a word die set that can say “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Day.” Just for being in the card kit club, The Stamps of Life also included a free gift — a ribbon in the midnight color. 

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

Pinata2Stamp Handmade Card

Hello! Today on my blog is a brand new release from The Stamps of Life called Pinata2Stamp. Here, I colored the stamped image with my Copic markers and die cut it with the shadow layer from the pinata dies. I also used the fringe dies that were sent free to club members (a perk of being a club member!) to create a colorful background of fringe in cardstock colors that match the pinata colors. I absolutely love how this turned out! To see a video tutorial, watch my YouTube video and be sure to subscribe to my channel to see more cardmaking tutorials from me.

Flower Pot Fold-It – 2 Cards

Today on my blog, I’m sharing two cards that I made with the Flower Pot Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. You can use this die set to make an A2 sized card with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It can be used for just about any occasion — Birthdays, Thank You’s, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Sympathy, Get Well, etc.

The die set comes with six dies — two dies to make the flower pot and four dies to make the flowers. All you need to do is to supply the paper and embellishments!

Watch my video tutorial here:

https://youtu.be/xFEAI6qFsuo

Card 1

For my first card, I made a fold-it card which is an A2 sized card (4.25 x 5.5 inches) that opens from the left side.

Ballgown Avery - Paper Nest Dolls
birthday, Birthday Cards, Echo Park Paper Co, Paper Nest Dolls, Queen & Co, Stamps of Life, Tim Holtz

Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card

Hello!

Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card.
