The April kits are definitely some of my faves! The club set (stamp and die) is called lemonadestand2stamp (and dies) and there are coordinating sets too with adorable sign sentiments and lots of lemon/lemonade puns. So many options with these sets! These will coordinate nicely with previous releases too so that really gives you even more options. There were many other releases this month like fold-its, sentiment dies, background dies, stencils and a new color was introduced too! There were many more releases this month so be sure to check it all out at the Stamps of Life website. You won’t want to miss them!
The monthly card kit is called: Dear Friend, and, of course, it coordinates with all of the monthly sets. This kit is overflowing with yummy, good things!!! It contains adorable stickers, a yellow ribbon spool, epoxy squares, stickers, pop up wooden buttons, a matching patterned paper pad, cardstock, envelopes, a storage envelope and the “Dear Friend” die and shadow die in a really fun font. On top of all that, this kit includes an A1 side step up card base with lots of accessory dies too!! Can you believe all of that! In addition, Ken and Stephanie threw in three freebie dies too!!! Really unbelievable. The cardstock in the kit matches everything and features the following colors: Grass, Guava, Grape, Lemonade, Pineapple, Banana, Tangerine, Midnight and Powdered Sugar. All items can be found on the Stamps of Life website.
The new fold-it club features a Rainbow for the month of April! Included in the kit are two fun stencils too. The first coordinates with the rainbow as an accessory stencil and the second stencil is a raindrop stencil!!! The fold-its won’t be available to the general public for several months so if you are not in the club …. join now!
If you would like to check out my YouTube channel, I have lots of different demo’s and tips on my site. This month I used lots of items from these kits to show how to gold foil without a machine and I also showed how to use these stencils on glitter card with alcohol markers. I’ll include both links below. Here is the link to my channel …. CardsByDeCaro – I would greatly appreciate it if you would subscribe too!
Below are some cards I made with each of the kits from this month. I hope you enjoy them. Leave a comment letting me know which you like best…
I hope you have fun with these stamp and die sets and remember you can use them in so many ways by changing up the paper, inks and of course what you combine them with. I would love it if you shared your projects! Thanks for joining me! Happy Crafting!
