Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2

09:00


Hi Crafters,
it's that time again! The Stamp of Approval Collection will be released on June 7th! We are hopping for three days to bring you a TON of inspiration using the products found in the box! Don't forget in order to be notified about SOA, you need to join the WAITLIST! I have a list of all the people in the Blog Hop for each day at the bottom of the post. Just head to the next person after leaving a comment here on what inspires you!



What is SOA? It is a collection of stamps, dies and other goodies, carefully hand chosen and/or designed by Catherine Pooler. They are not available individually for at least six months so you get a chance to play early. If you don't like the element of surprise, you can check out the entire collection in two videos on Catherine's blog. You also get three days worth of hop inspiration and a PDF guide with dozens of ideas on how to use the products. 



What Inspires You?
We are giving away prizes! One winner will be chosen at random from each day's blog hop comments and will be announced on June 9 on Catherine's blog. If you already purchased the box, you will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase.


This card I featured in the video tutorial. I used the Simply the Best and Birds of a Feather stamps and combined them with some of Catherine's amazing inks and topped it off with the Best Die from the collection! I love layering stamps on top of each other and this creates some pretty contrasts!


I am obsessed with Catherine's inks. They are so vibrant and gorgeous and I love how solid stamps stamp perfectly every time. I used a variety of colours to make up this fun card. It was super easy to make, just stamp one colour on top of the other.


Inks: Tiara, Tiki Torch, Orange Twist, Tutti Frutti, Rockin Red, Flirty Fuchsia

  14. Your cards are beautiful, the feather card made my jaw drop, such a neat idea to stamp right over another image. That sure takes masking to the wastebasket. It just might be Catherine's ink that does it.
    My inspiration is florals...the colors, the shapes and the scents. And in nature....birds. Love them all.

  74. Hello Justine,
    Firstly, I wanted to send a proper thank-you for the lovely quilted cover for a Mini-Misti, which I won during your April giveaway. It arrived and is beautiful and practical. While I don't own the Mini-Misti, I decided to invest in the Creative Corners, which I will store in the pouch.
    Secondly, on to your cards. I LOVE the feather one! I was not too sure about the elements on the Birds of a Feather set, as I am not one for flourishes, etc. But I just noticed that script stamp is in FRENCH. Brilliant! It will be very useful, and adds lovely layering and texture to your card. The rainbow of twigs showcases those CP inks to perfection. A sweet card. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Fell in love when I saw your 1st card, loved the technique and use of the "best" die. The 2nd card is incredible. Using CP inks allows each color to pop!!!

  83. I just love your work Justine! Your cards are amazing. First card I have seen using the words stamp you out in top of the feathers, like the way you used it.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Fantastic idea to have the layout of the
    inks set up the colors for stamping the
    wheat. Simple but beautiful card.
    I get most of my ideas from blogs but
    I need to start observing nature and
    the things around me for good ideas.
    thanks for sharing.
