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.

Gingerbread Man Cards

Today on my blog I am featuring three projects that I created using the Gingerbread Man Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life.

Gingerbread Man Handmade Cards - The Stamps of Life

Watch my video tutorial for all three projects here:

Project 1

For the first project, I created a gingerbread man fold-it card. A fold-it card is an A2 sized card shaped like a gingerbread man. It can easily fit into an A2 sized envelope.  You can either have the card open at the top or on the left side. I chose mine to open from the top. The die set also has several die pieces that you can use to decorate the gingerbread man. Some of the dies include a face, clothing, icing, and more.

The card stock I used for this card includes ginger snap, powdered sugar, and strawberry. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Joyful collection paper pad for the blue plaid overalls. I added epoxy dots for the buttons. I inked the edges of the smaller gingerbread die cut with gingersnap ink. I think this added a nice touch. It makes it look like a toasted cookie!

Since this is a fold-it card, I decorated the front and the back and I think it turned out super cute!

For my next project, I created a gingerbread gate fold card. I used the largest die in the set and cut it out of gingersnap card stock. I used the second largest die and cut another piece of gingersnap card stock. Again, I used gingersnap ink and ink-blended the edges to make it look slightly toasted. I adhered those together and then added his clothing and icing.  The card stock is gingersnap, powdered sugar, and spearmint. The patterned paper is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints and adhered them to the front of the pockets. I also used foam adhesive to add three as buttons.

Supplies:

  1. Gingerbread Man Fold-It Die Set
  2. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  3. Powdered Sugar Cardstock
  4. Strawberry Cardstock
  5. Gingersnap Ink Pad
  6. Joyful Collection Paper Pad

Project 2

I used a gate fold card die to make the card base and adhered the gingerbread man to the front left opening. I used spearmint cardstock for the bow tie and pockets. The patterned paper I used is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints from one of the pieces of paper and adhered them to the pockets. I added foam adhesive to the three peppermints that I used as buttons.

For the inside of the card, I used a piece of powdered sugar cardstock. I stamped the peppermints as shown. The inside of the peppermints were stamped with strawberry ink. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the ChristmasTree2stamp and was stamped with spearmint ink.

  7. Joyful Collection Paper Pad
  8. ChristmasTree2Stamp (for “Merry Christmas” sentiment)

Project 3

For my third project, I made a treat box using the Gingerbread man fold-it die set as well as the box-it die set.

I die cut and decorated two gingerbread men, one for the front of the box and one for the back of the box. Both gingerbread men were decorated identically.

I also used the box-it die which I cut with gingersnap card stock to match the gingerbread men. I connected the box-it die cut to both gingerbread men, added some grass filling, and some candy canes.
