December 2019 Card Kit - 6 Cards


This is Lisa Mears on the blog today. I am excited to share the December 2019 release of The Stamps of Life card kit. The color pallet for this month is amazing! The colors consist of cherry, guava, blue jay, ocean, mint chip, bubble gum, strawberry, gingersnap, and powdered sugar.
The card kit comes with a patterned paper pad (Love You Collection), sentiment stamp set, a package of colorful chipboard snowflakes, four ribbon, an 8-pack of felt hearts, 4 ribbon, “Love You” word die with shadow, epoxy dots, and a package of chipboard pieces which include the word “happy,” hearts, cupcakes, and flowers. Of course, don’t forget about the beautiful solid color 8 1/2 x 11 card stock sheets, envelopes, and a large storage envelope to store it all in!

To watch a video tutorial of all six cards that I made with the December 2019 card kit, click below.

Below are pictures of all six cards. I absolutely love how you can die cut the flowers from the pattern paper pad using the Flower2Build One dies and use them on a card. This makes for a quick and easy card! You'll see the die cuts from the paper pad in the first three cards below.

Lattice Gift Card Holder

Hello there!

This is Crafting with Katherine on the blog sharing the new Lattice Gift card holder from The Stamps of Life. I created three of them using the September, October and November Card kits.

If you aren't familiar with the Card kit or the other club offerings please click HERE to learn more!

I stamped stars onto my Cherry card holder and added a paper pieced tree. I love the size of this holder!
I stamped the sentiment on the patterned paper so the gift recipient will see this when the card is removed.

I added the preprinted pinecones from the Just Because paper pad (October card kit) as well as the Just because die (also included in the kit).

I adhered flowers and a banner from the Lattice card holder set on the inside.

This card holder features items from the November card kit (Woo Hoo). I cut the preprinted penguin with my dies and added a chipboard Snowflake.

These Woo Hoo dies were included in the kit and cut using powdered sugar and licorice.

Happy Crafting!

Penguin Fold-it

Hello! This is Crafting with Katherine on the blog today.

Today I want to share a video featuring the newest Fold-it from The Stamps of Life, a Penguin!

This cute penguin coordinates perfectly with the November Club set, Penguins2stamp. To see some ideas using that set, click HERE to see my post.

The Penguin Fold-it makes an A2 sized card and would be perfect on a banner. 

You can use any of your Fold-its with the Box-it die to create treat boxes! Click HERE to see a recent post showing the Box-it die.

Have a crafty day!

It is Crafting with Katherine sharing with you today on the blog.

The new club set, Flower2build, is now available at The Stamps of Life!

I created several projects with this set as well as the coordinating sets, Flower2buildTWO and Flower2buildTHREE.

I created my own patterned paper using the Flower2build sets. I added a banner which I stamped with flowers using Banana ink. I popped up the Love statement with Adhesive Foam and a ribbon to finish this one.

I stamped a single flower on this card. The leaves are from Pear2stamp. I used a circle patterned paper to tie my shapes together.

I enjoy making other things in addition to cards so I used the Flower2build sets to stamp a small gift bag. I created a shaker tag using the Stitched tag dies and a piece of acetate.

You could make these bags with any color palette and put them away until you need them. I love to have custom gift packaging in my craft stash for any occasion.
The Bookmark die is such a fun set from The Stamps of Life. This die set makes them so quick and easy to create!
On this last card, I cut several Ribbon border die pieces and added a single stamped flower. Isn't that big sentiment lovely?

Be sure to stop by the Gallery at The Stamps of Life for more inspiration!

Here's what I posted on our Facebook Fan Page:

It is Time! I am happy to announce it is ok to check out the new site! HOWEVER...PLEASE READ THIS FIRST:

Your old bookmark to the site will not work. You will need to click this link and bookmark new: HERE

There will be many wrinkles! You might find something that isn't perfect. Oh, who am I kidding...you WILL find some things that aren't perfect. Please rest assured for the next few months we will be ironing this out. Please be patient with the wrinkles and only contact us about them if your computer bursts into flames when on our site. 

You can now place an order and yes, club discounts are working. 

Please be kind. This new site took THREE YEARS and THREE different web developer companies to make happen. As you know, I'm always honest.....over the three years, we have spent six figures on this site. I have learned patience, I've learned to cut down on my bad words, I've learned some people will steal your money (website company #2), I've learned some people will move out of the country to not pay USA taxes (website company #1), and I've learned there are dishonest people out there. Through it all, my web designer (different than web developers), Amie has stuck by us, cried with us and persevered. Without her honesty, kindness, work ethic, friendship, determination, none of this would be happening. Amie, I love you and I thank you. When we are both in Heaven, I look forward to sitting down and spending some quality time with you! Now go enjoy your vacation! 

Haha....this sounds like an acceptance speech. 

To all our 'Fans', Club Members, customers and stalkers (haha), thanks for your patience and support. This last year has been a struggle emotionally, spiritually and financially. But as we know, GOD is Great and has blessed us time and time again. TWINS!!! With Him, anything is possible. I rest in Him, knowing that He is for me.

I love you all. Thank you so much for your LOVE , support and prayers. Ok, Ok, go check out the site. Here's the SECURE link: HERE
