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).

Birdcage Shaped Card

Birdcage Fold-it Card

Hello!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a card that I made using the Birdcage Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. It can make a birdcage shaped A2 size card. You can also use it to put on the front of a card or even put it on a scrapbook page. This die set includes the die to make the birdcage and a branch for a bird to stand on. For this card, I incorporated dies from other sets including the flowers, sentiment, swirls, and leaves.

To see a tutorial of how I made this card, watch my YouTube video here —

Supplies:

  1. Birdcage Fold-it
  2. Ink – Pixie, Grape, Ocean, Seaglass, Pool, Kiwi
  3. Cardstock: Powdered Sugar, Pixie, Grape, Green Apple 
  4. Dragonfly and Flower A2 Card Die Set (flowers and sentiment)
  5. Flower, Vine, and Grid and A2 Card Base Die Set (vines)
  6. Swirl A2 Card Base Die Set (swirl)
  7. Art Glitter Glue
  8. 2 Inch Scor-Pal Tape
