The Stamps of Life February 2020 Card Kit

12 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life February 2020 card kit was released on February 15 and I’m excited to share with you the cards I made using this kit. I never know how many cards I’m going to make with each card kit release and this month I made 12 cards!  This card kit corresponds with the monthly stamp and die set – sloths2stamp.

There are so many fun products included in the February card kit.

The Stamps of Life February Card Kit

The color pallet for this month is cantaloupe, chocolate, spearmint, kiwi, ocean, bubblegum, tangerine, gingersnap, and powdered sugar. The kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four powdered sugar cardstock sheets.

The petite paper pad is the Best Wishes Collection. Two of the sheets in the paper pad include the sloth images that match the monthly stamp set. These sloth images can be die cut with the corresponding shadow dies from the sloths2stamp die set. There are a total of 8 sloths, 8 branches, and several leaves that can all be die cut from this paper pad! This means super easy and quick cards!

The kit also comes with two dies — a Best Wishes word die that comes two dies —  a shadow layer and the word die. The kit also comes a December swirl die.

In addition, the kit comes with flower and leaf puffy stickers that match the flowers and leaves in the pattern paper pad.  There are also epoxy hearts, felt balloons, and a sentiment stamp set. Ribbon in kiwi gingham and gingersnap are also included in this kit.

Sending You Lots of Love

 

Sending You Lots of Love The Stamps of Life

Getting ready for Valentine’s Day, this card is full of pink and hearts! All products used are The Stamps of Life.

The mini  heart stencil was used to ink blend the background of the card. The color inks used are bubblegum, candy, and guava. The lightest color (bubblegum) is on the bottom, followed by candy, and then guava at the top.

The two hearts were die cut from ink-blended cardstock using the Double Hearts die that Stamps of Life club members received free in December. The ink colors are the same as the background — bubblegum, candy, and guava.

The “Sending You Lots of Love” is a sentiment die that comes with a coordinating shadow die.  The shadow was die cut with guava cardstock and the sentiment was die cut with powdered sugar cardstock. The three hearts attached to the word die were die cut from the same ink-blended cardstock as the larger hearts.

Sending You Lots of Love The Stamps of Life

Supplies:

  1. Sending You Lots of Love” Word Die
