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. 

More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.

The Stamps of Life 3-D Drop-in Pop Up with Rainbow
birthday, Copic, pop up card, Stamps of Life

2 Cards using 3-D Pop-up Drop-in Die Set- The Stamps of Life

 

Hello! Today on my blog I am featuring two cards that I made using the 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set from The Stamps of Life.

The two cards are show above. The first card on the left incorporates all of the dies that come in the die set which include the gorgeous background die in the center as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons. The nice thing about this die set is that any of The Stamps of Life background dies will work with this set.

The second card on the right uses the same 3-D Pop-up Drop-in die set, however, instead of using a background die in the center, a scalloped rectangle was used to make a shadow box center. Then, I used the Rainbow2Stamp stamp set to incorporate a rainbow in the inside center of the card.

The entire process can be seen on my YouTube video below. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crafty inspiration.  Supplies are also listed below.

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Ice Cream Stand-Up Birthday Card

Ice Cream Sundae Stand Up Card

Hello!

Here is the second card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” For this card, many of the products I used are from The Stamps of Life March Card Kit and the Die Hard Club Kit.

Just like with the first ice cream card I made in the challenge, I paper pierced the ice cream scoops using only the die cuts and cardstock. Using the die set for BananaSplit2Stamp,  I ran the dies through the die cut machine using solid and patterned paper and then glued the pieces together to form the ice cream scoops. I used  Bubblegum card stock for the bottom layer of ice cream and I used polka dot paper from the Sparkle Collection patterned paper pad for the top layer. The cherry was cut with Strawberry cardstock, the banana was die cut with Banana cardstock, and the dish was die cut with Cloud cardstock.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment also came in the March card kit and was cut with Powered Sugar and Strawberry cardstock. The balloons came from the same kit and were die cut with Strawberry and Lemonade cardstock.

Cupcake Avery – Elegant Card

Cupcake Avery 2019-04

Hello!

Here is a another birthday card that I made using a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls. This stamp is called Cupcake Avery. I also incorporated some of Anna Griffin’s elegant dies and papers and Queen and Company’s flower embellishments.

The card base is from Anna Griffin’s 6 x 6 Perfect Pattern Card Set. The color matches perfectly with the green copic markers that I used to color her dress.

The large square die cut is from Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies. First, I die cut shadow layer in the purple glitter card stock.  I applied double sided adhesive to the top solid purple layer before running it through the die cut machine. This made it easier to adhere to the glitter paper.  The green lace die cuts are from the Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set and I followed the same procedure as previously stated.

Using hot glue, I adhered the flower embellishments to the front of the card.

Paper Nest Dolls Cupcake Avery

Here are the supplies I used:

  1. Paper Nest Dolls Cupcake Avery Stamp
  2. Lawn Fundamentals Jet Black Premium Ink Pad
  3. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Card Stock (to stamp the image onto)
  4. Card base: Anna Griffin Perfect Pattern 6 x 6 inch Card Set
  5. Anna Griffin’s All Square Cut and Emboss Dies
  6. Anna Griffin Lace Edge Die Set
  7. Anna Griffin Everyday Perfect Palette II Cardstock
  8. Queen and Company Flowers
