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).

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

The Stamps of Life August 2020 Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit The Stamps of Life August 2020 card kit was released on August 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 Birds2Stamp  as well as the add-on set, MoreBirds2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the August Card Kit Club. The Stamps of Life August 2020 Card Kit Contents The August card kit is called the “Fabulous” collection. The color pallet for this month is Strawberry, Tangerine, Cantaloupe, Banana, Green Apple, Mint Chip, Ocean, Grape, and Powdered Sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets. (Note: My kit came with the Sunshine cardstock instead of Banana and the Cherry cardstock instead of Cantaloupe. Both colors match very closely, but I wanted to point this out because when I make my cards, I refer to the cardstock by the names of the colors I received in my kit.) The petite paper pad is the Fabulous Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes four sheets of birds in various colors that match the monthly stamp set, Birds2Stamp, and the add-on set, MoreBirds2Stamp. The birds can be die cut with the corresponding shadow dies from the corresponding die sets. The card kit also comes with a Fabulous word die, a die to make a flower, epoxy dots, palm tree puffy stickers, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set, paperclips with bows attached, idea card, and a set of envelopes. As a special bonus, The Stamps of Life is including THREE FREE dies this month! There is a Happy Birthday word die which is a freebie from Stephanie and there are two large die sets which are freebies from Ken.  Ken is including two freebie die sets in every card kit through December 2020.  My two freebies were the BananaSplit2Stamp dies ($16.41 value) and the Flower with Stem Dies ($12.88 value).
