The Stamps of Life January 2020 Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit

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

I’m so excited to share with you my latest 10 Cards 1 Kit project using The Stamps of Life January 2020 card kit. This kit is so much fun! It corresponds with the monthly stamp and die set – birdhouses2stamp.

The Stamps of Life January 2020 Card Kit - 10 Cards 1 Kit

The color pallet for this month is cherry, chocolate, kiwi, banana, lemonade, ocean, strawberry, gingersnap, and a brand new color — vanilla! The vanilla cardstock replaces the powdered sugar cardstock that has been in the card kits previously. There are even vanilla envelopes!

The kit comes with a petite paper pad — the Dream Collection. I absolutely love The Stamps of Life paper pads because four of the sheets in this month’s paper pad include birdhouse diecuts that can be die cut with the corresponding shadow die from the birdhouses2stamp die set. There are a total of 38 birdhouse diecuts and 20 bird diecuts from this paper pad! This means super easy and quick cards!

The kit also comes with two dies — a cloud die and a word die. The cloud die comes with a shadow layer as well as a top layer that is stitched with raindrops which add texture when die cut. The word die, Dream, comes with a shadow layer and word.

In addition, the kit comes with buttons in chocolate, kiwi, and strawberry. The buttons are not ordinary buttons though. Instead, they have sticky flat backs that can adhere directly onto the front of a card. There are also some beautiful rhinestone flower embellishments, cherry ribbon, and kiwi polka dot ribbon.

Lastly, the kit comes with a sheet of chipboard pieces which include birdhouses, hearts, flowers, and sentiments. More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.

Below are the 10 cards I made with this card kit.  To see a video tutorial, click the video below:

Sending You Lots of Love Shaker Card

Sending You Lots of Love Shaker Card The Stamps of Life

Hello!

Today on my blog I am once again featuring the “Sending You Lots of Love” word die from The Stamps of Life. I decided to make this card into a Valentine’s Day shaker card.

The A2 Circle Background Die Set from The Stamps of Life is a perfect die set to make a shaker card! The background die cut on this card is shown with many tiny small hearts inside of the circles. The tiny hearts were die cut from strawberry cardstock using the triple tiny heart die that comes with the “Sending You Lots of Love” word die. The word die is a sentiment die that comes with a coordinating shadow die, however,  I did not use the shadow die for the sentiment on this card. I simply die cut the sentiment with strawberry cardstock and adhered it directly to the card front.

For a complete tutorial on how to make this card, watch my YouTube video here:

 

Supplies:

  1. Sending You Lots of Love” Word Die
  2. Circle Background A2 Die Set
  3. Cardstock: Powdered Sugar, Strawberry, Mint Chip
  4. Patterned Paper: Adore Collection
  5. Mint Chip ribbon
  6. Acetate
  7. Art Glitter Glue

Valentine Truck with Bears

Hello!

Valentine’s Day is only four weeks away and I’m getting a head start on my Valentine’s Day cards.

I am in love with this brand new adorable stamp – LoveBear2Stamp – from The Stamps of Life!  It has so many fun hearts, Valentines, two adorable bears, and of course an old fashioned pick-up truck, my favorite! It has a coordinating die set called Valentine Truck w/Bears.  You can use the die set to die cut several pieces of cardstock and/or patterned paper and then paper pierce them together to form the image. This is great if you don’t like to color — you can simply use your papers to make the die cut. At the bottom of this post is a link to my card tutorial on YouTube.

For my first card, I used the stamp and colored it with Copic markers. The stamp is a large stamp which will fill most of the front of an A2 size card base. Therefore, you really don’t need many other things to add to the card front to decorate it. Just put the stamp on a card, color it in, add a few papers, and your done!

For my second card, I used only the dies. It is shown here on a step-up card base. I also used the mini heart stencil to create my own patterned paper.

LoveBear2Stamp

I also made a third card. This card demonstrates that you can fill the pick-up truck with anything! It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day related. You can simply cut the hearts away and add something else of your choice. For my card, I added Easter eggs!

Sending You Lots of Love

 

Sending You Lots of Love The Stamps of Life

Getting ready for Valentine’s Day, this card is full of pink and hearts! All products used are The Stamps of Life.

The mini  heart stencil was used to ink blend the background of the card. The color inks used are bubblegum, candy, and guava. The lightest color (bubblegum) is on the bottom, followed by candy, and then guava at the top.

The two hearts were die cut from ink-blended cardstock using the Double Hearts die that Stamps of Life club members received free in December. The ink colors are the same as the background — bubblegum, candy, and guava.

The “Sending You Lots of Love” is a sentiment die that comes with a coordinating shadow die.  The shadow was die cut with guava cardstock and the sentiment was die cut with powdered sugar cardstock. The three hearts attached to the word die were die cut from the same ink-blended cardstock as the larger hearts.
