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 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).

My first card was inspired by Mojo Monday Sketch 543.
My third card was also inspired by the MFT 235 Sketch, however, I modified it slightly by moving the sentiment toward the bottom of the card, using a heart instead of a circle, and using a larger piece of paper underneath the heart.

Thank you Lisa for all the inspiration. I made 6 of the August cards using your samples. Since I’m new to TSOL I don’t have but 1 flip it but still made the cards as a normal card. Can’t wait to see September card kit and your ideas. Now to do the June cards….sometimes it’s hard to cut into the 6×6 paper pad. Thanks again, Daphne F.

Yay! That’s awesome! So glad you used my cards as inspiration. I agree…it’s hard to cut into the beautiful pattern paper. Sometimes I just want to save it all.😊
Hi Daphne. I’m glad to hear you used my cards as inspiration. I know what you mean about it being hard to cut into a paper pad. The papers are so pretty. Sometimes I buy an extra pad just to keep.😊
