Hello Folks! Scott here with the New Love From Lizi September 2019 Super Card Kit! Lizi is calling this the Warm Thanks Card Kit and she has a few surprises in store for us!
Love From Lizi turns 3 this September 2nd, and to celebrate, we get a kit that is over-stuffed with coordinated card stocks, pattern papers, stamps, dies, ephemera, embellishments, and unique items created exclusively for Love From Lizi! Let’s dig in!
Lizi always includes five sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock in her kits. This month we get a warm Orange, soft Yellow, super smooth White (alcohol marker-friendly), Navy and Burgundy. We also get a specialty sheet of gold foiled vellum in the same size – foiled berries and leaves on a dark speckled background. Very pretty.
We are treated to three sheets of clear Alpha stickers in this kit. Lovely large capital letters with different flower accents, and a bunch of ampersands – Lizi says she included all the extra ampersands to assist when making anniversary, or wedding cards when you want to feature the lucky couple’s initials. Really nice stickers! And we also get a 6″ x 8″ sheet of watercolor paper – I believe this may be Tim Holt’s watercolor paper… Hmmmmmmmm…. does this mean we may be getting some watercolors??
Plenty of pattern papers this month with 20 single-sided sheets of LFL Warm Thanks 6″ x 6″ pattern papers. Looks like we’re going for a rather distressed vintage feel this month with lots of plum and beige and mauve and pink with touches of orange and browns. These all match the flowers on the Alpha stickers quite nicely. The first five sheets on the top left are also pearlescent specialties and sport a slightly golden sheen! Pretty!
A BIG 6″ x 8″ stamp set with matching dies is up next in our kit. A large flower bloom, a sprig of berries and two kinds of leaves are paired with some “brush stroke” stamps in assorted shapes and sizes and three “thankful” sentiments to finish it out. AND we get matching dies for all the images in the stamp set including the “brush stroke” stamps. I always love getting matching dies with a stamp set!
Here’s the sentiment dies! A bonus die set with “Warm Thanks”, “Many Thanks”, and “Just a note” die cuts – though these are in the same font as the sentiment stamps, I don’t believe they are made to die-cut the stamps themselves – they look a bit bigger than the stamps… And we get yet another new peel-off color this month – Lilac – in the pin-stripe shape featuring three different widths. Lizi’s peel off stickers must be one of her most popular items of all time! I know I love them!
The last thing we get to before we open the embellishment bag is a package of “frames” – ephemera frames featuring the flowers from the Alpha stickers again. These are all quite large (Lizi said they wouldn’t fit in the embellishment bag!) and can easily cover the entire front of an A2 card. 11 frame pieces in total featuring a variety of geometric shapes accented with different clusters of flowers. Very unique!
Finally we get to our embellishment bag! From left to right we have Glitter Dots – self-adhesive enamel dots in five colors with lots of sparkly bits inside, new Love From Lizi embossing powder in Perfect Plum – very, very shiny and it matches the flowers ‘perfectly’! The Warm Thanks sequin mix features gold sequins in a variety of sizes along with a sprinkling of plum sequins. Another NEW item to the LFL kits is this Windsor and Newton Watercolor dot card put together especially for the Warm Thanks Card Kit. WOO-HOO! Watercolor dot cards have been popping up in a lot of card kits recently, and it’s good to see Lizi bringing yet another brand of watercolors to our craft desks! If that weren’t enough we also get a spool of five 3/8″ satin ribbons – a meter length each in burgundy, yellow, moss green, tan, and mauve. That’s almost 16.5′ of ribbon! Just when you think there can’t be anything else, there’s one more package of…
Ephemera pieces!! 30 different pieces of ephemera featuring the flowers introduced way back on the sticker sheet. Definitely a bountiful blessing of beautiful blooms to play with!
Of course Lizi has provided for us a great grab bag of add-on products for this kit. Four different card stock packs in matte and mirror, pearlescent, a gold assortment and a pack of acetate as well some groovy floral glitter stickers, paper flowers, burlap flowers, embossing folders, and metal charms. I managed to snag a few extras this month!
I did get the Warm Thanks Peel-off bundle which includes Gold Glitter pin-stripes, Copper bubble, Purple pin-stripes, and Grass Green sway peel-offs. And I am especially thrilled to get this “Frames” 6″ x 8″ stamp set. Each of those frames are individual stamps – this isn’t just 8 stamps but 19 stamps with two and three different sizes for each frame design! This stamp set seems like an invaluable stash builder, and I can see this set getting a lot of use for years to come! And there’s MORE…
I got the “Smudges and Sentiments” 4″ x 6″ add-on stamp set featuring three more sentiments – “Thank You”, Just a note” and “With lots of love” and six more “brush stroke” smudges. Another perfect compliment to this kit. I also got two brand new items included in the September release – the Background Builder die set (listed as Set One, so there must be more sets coming!!) This is a collection of 5 stitched shapes and a “Best Wishes” sentiment… you know how much I love my stitched rectangle dies!! And finally, Lizi has produced her first rubber stamp! The LFL Candystripe Background stamp is a 6″ x 6″ rubber stamp that is amazingly versatile and a welcome addition to my sadly thin stash of background rubber stamps! Now that is a kit worth celebrating!!
Lizi’s kits sell out VERY quickly, so if I’ve managed to whet your appetite or spark your imagination, I would suggest heading over to lovefromlizi.com and getting one for yourself! Better yet, become a subscriber and you’ll never have to worry about missing out on one of Lizi’s unique and overstuffed kits ever again! I know many of Lizi’s subscribers have made more than 50 cards from a single kit…! Sometimes I think they’re in competition with each other!
I am looking forward to digging into these supplies and seeing what this Super Card Kit inspires in me! Keep an eye out for my 10 Cards 1 Kit video coming asap! Please share this post with any and all interested parties, hurry over and grab your kit before they sell out, and, as always, I wish you Happy Crafting!
