12 Cards | Michaels Recollections Memory Explosion Box 6 x 6 Paper Pad and Ephemera


Today I’m sharing 12 cards I made using the Recollections Memory Explosion Box Collection. This collection is sold at Michaels craft stores. It caught my eye because of all of the pretty pastel colors and foil throughout the paper pad. There were so many pieces to this collection, but I purchased the 6 x 6 foil paper, chipboard frame stickers, birthday die cuts, and washi tape. With these items, I made 12 birthday cards and used up all of the ephemera. Some of the cards can be used for congratulations cards as well. With the chipboard frames, I made some shaker cards. All supplies are listed below.

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit – 10 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit - Love LifeLife - FishTank2Stamp

The Stamps of Life January 2021 card kit was released on January 15 and this kit is AMAZING! First of all, this is the first time EVER that The Stamps of Life has included a 6″ x 9″ paper pad! Woo Hoo! This larger paper pad is perfect for making slimline cards.

This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called FishTank2stamp as well as the add-on set, MoreFishTank2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the January Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit Contents

The January card kit is called the “Loving Life” collection. The color pallet for this month is Poppy, Blueberry, Sky, Blue Jay, Grape, Sunshine, Kiwi, Cloud, and Powdered Sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets.

The 6″ x 9″ paper pad is the Loving Life Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes four sheets of fish tanks and fish, all of which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the FishTank2Stamp dies and MoreFishTank2Stamp dies. In total, there are 28 fish, 8 starfish, 8 seaweed, 6 turtles, and 10 fish tanks for a total of 60 die cut pieces. I love how these die cuts can be used to make quick and easy cards.

The card kit also comes with a Loving Life word die, white epoxy dots, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set with two additional fish stamps and matching dies, yellow bow embellishments, fish puffy stickers, idea card, a set of envelopes, and a large storage envelope to put everything in. In addition, The Stamps of Life included a freebie this month which is a large Stamps of Life tote bag.

Bubblegum Machine Card with Real Candy
Fold-It, fold-it card, Shaker Card, Stamps of Life

Bubblegum Machine Shaker Card – With Real Candy!

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a shaker card that I made using the Bubblegum Machine fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set makes a 5 x 7 card shaped like a bubblegum machine. There is also a die included that allows you to turn it into a shaker card. If you don’t want to make it a shaker card, you can make it a flat card. For my card, I chose to make a shaker card and include REAL candy pieces. I die cut a circle in the middle of the shaker and covered it with a stitched circle on the back side. I added a stamp and a pull tab which shows the recipient that he/she can pull open the tab to get the candy pieces out! How fun is that?!

To see how I made this card, watch my tutorial here:

Supplies:

  1. Bubblegum Machine Fold-it
  2. Bubblegum4Me Stamp Set
  3. The Stamps of Life Cardstock: Powdered Sugar, Strawberry, Grape, Licorice, Cloud, Tangerine, Sunshine, Kiwi

Triple Circle Slimline Card using FingerPrint2Stamp

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline shaker card that I made using some fun products from The Stamps of Life. For this card, I used the FingerPrints2Stamp set and the Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set.

The Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set works with the Rounded Slimline Card die set and the Slimline Card die set to cut the background out of the paper to put on the front of a slimline card. Using this drop-in makes it easy to turn a regular card into a shaker card.

I also used the Fingerprint2stamp set. This is such a fun set. It includes stamps of various images — fish, dog, cat, bear, football, elephant, and more. Just put your fingerprint in an ink pad and then put your finger to the paper to fill in the inside of the stamp…so fun!

Summer Fun Slimline Shaker Card

Slimline Shaker Card using Floaties2Stamp

I’m bringing you some more fun summer cards in July. The July club set at The Stamps of Life is Floaties2Stamp. It includes three adorable float stamps and several sentiments.  There is an add-on set called MoreFloaties2Stamp with an additional float stamp and many more sentiments, all pertaining to summer.

I made a slimline shaker card with these float stamps. I colored them up with my Copic markers and then diecut them with the matching dies.  I used a grid stencil to create a pool-like background for the floats.

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

Guitar Cards

Today on my blog I am sharing some cards that I made using the guitar dies from The Stamps of Life. These dies go along with the stamp set, Guitars2Play, which was previously released. The stamps did not have dies, so now they do! For my cards, I did some paper piecing to create the guitars.

For my first card, I also used some circle dies to create a record as a die cut image on the card. I just love how it turned out with the two guitar die cuts added to the card.

For my second card, I created a shaker card using the guitar dies and the dotted star dies.

UPDATE: The small “You Rock” word die used on these cards is not available in the guitar die set. It came with my design team shipment, but The Stamps of Life decided to not include it in the final packaging. Another option is the large “You Rock” word die. Here’s a link – https://thestampsoflife.com/you-rock-dies.html

A compete tutorial is in my YouTube video here —
