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).

The Stamps of Life February 2020 Card Kit

12 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life February 2020 card kit was released on February 15 and I’m excited to share with you the cards I made using this kit. I never know how many cards I’m going to make with each card kit release and this month I made 12 cards!  This card kit corresponds with the monthly stamp and die set – sloths2stamp.

There are so many fun products included in the February card kit.

The Stamps of Life February Card Kit

The color pallet for this month is cantaloupe, chocolate, spearmint, kiwi, ocean, bubblegum, tangerine, gingersnap, and powdered sugar. The kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four powdered sugar cardstock sheets.

The petite paper pad is the Best Wishes Collection. Two of the sheets in the paper pad include the sloth images that match the monthly stamp set. These sloth images can be die cut with the corresponding shadow dies from the sloths2stamp die set. There are a total of 8 sloths, 8 branches, and several leaves that can all be die cut from this paper pad! This means super easy and quick cards!

The kit also comes with two dies — a Best Wishes word die that comes two dies —  a shadow layer and the word die. The kit also comes a December swirl die.

In addition, the kit comes with flower and leaf puffy stickers that match the flowers and leaves in the pattern paper pad.  There are also epoxy hearts, felt balloons, and a sentiment stamp set. Ribbon in kiwi gingham and gingersnap are also included in this kit.
