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.

Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11.
