Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2

09:00


Hi Crafters,
I am "Counting my Blessings" that I get to be a part of designing for Catherine Pooler's new Stamp of Approval Collection Blog Hop. Stamp of Approval is release quarterly and contains stamps, dies and usually some other fun surprises. These goodies are not going to be released individually for 6+ months so it's exciting to get them first hand. People on the waitlist get sent the shopping links first at 9am on August 16th and then (if there are leftovers) it will go on sale to the general public at 6pm. 



PRIZES
One winner will be chosen at random from each day's comments and announced on AUGUST 17th on Catherine’s blog. The winners will win the collection and if they already bought it, they will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase. Comment on each blog to be entered to win!


I will have lots more inspiration coming on release day and I've made a bunch of cards. I thought I would feature my nice "Fall-themed" batch of cards today in my video tutorial.


I love patterns and I love this fall pattern. The solid leaf isn't technically meant to fill in the leaves but I love the way it looks. I decided to incorporate green into the design this time to get a nice fresh look from traditional autumn colours.


For this card, it started up as a pattern like the card above. Instead, I cut down the paper using the tag die that comes in the collection. I attached the Thankful die cut on top. Once I attached it to the card base, I knew that it needed an extra something. So I added the scalloped die to the mix. But I only used two sides to add some interest.

  125. Love these cards. They make such a beautiful statement but are so simple to recreate. Thank you for the tips. I love the look you got from blending over the stencil onto the blended cardstock. Also, how simple to line up your angled edge with the line on the cutter. So basic it never occurred to me before. You've certainly made my day.
