TROPICALLY YOURS STAMP OF APPROVAL - DAY 1!!!


Hi everyone!  It's time for another Stamp of Approval Collection by Catherine Pooler!  Today is Blog Hop Day 1!   Although I am not "officially" on the hop today I have a card to share with you all using some of the goodies in the collection.

You can start the blog hop today over on Catherine's blog.



If you’re new to Stamp of Approval – click here to check out everything you need to know about this exclusive collection of stamps, dies and other goodies. All these products were designed specifically for this collection; they are brand new, and while they will be made available at Catherine's store in the future, they won't be available there for many months.
If you are a StampNation member, you get access to order starting on July 17th during our pre-release pajama party.  Not a StampNation member? Make sure you are on the wait list so you get access to the collection at 9 am July 18th,  before the public (at 6 pm). These collections always sell quickly (and often sell out!), so if you're liking what you're seeing on the blog hop, you'll want to ensure that you have an opportunity to get your hands on this collection!

Now onto my project!

My card uses the Tropically Yours stamp set, the Canvas Grunge background stamp, Good Vibes Border stamp and a sentiment from the Stand Tall stamp set.  

I started my card by clear embossing the Canvas Grunge background stamp onto a piece of midnight card stock.  I LOVE the subtle texture this gives the midnight card stock.  I then stamped and die cut the hibiscus and leaves.  To add a bit of interest and dimension to the flower, I stamped with It's a Boy ink first then used a finger dauber to ink up the center of the stamp using Something Borrowed ink and then stamped again.  This created the darker center.


This close up photo shows the embossed background a bit better.  After adhering the stamped and embossed background piece, I stamped one of the borders from the Good Vibes Borders stamp set and then adhered the flower and leaves.  Stamped the sentiment and added some black and white twine and that finished off my card.


Catherine is also releasing a new ink color that goes perfectly with the Party Line of inks.  It is also THE PERFECT coral color, in my book.  I just love it.  Make sure you remember to add it to your cart when you are checking out as it is not included in the box this time.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

See you again tomorrow with another post.

ROCK STAR!!!

Hi everyone!  I'm sharing a card today using some products by Catherine Pooler.  My card features her Starlights stamp set and coordinating dies.


I love these stars in rainbow colors.  No surprise there, right?!  ;)  I started my card by die cutting the stitched rectangle from Catherine's Postage Stamp dies.  I then used the dies to cut partial stars from the rectangle piece.



I then lined up the stamps using my MISTI and stamped them onto my card base.  I popped up the die cut rectangle.  Added my sentiment, some black and white twine and some rhinestones in the centers of each star to finish off my card.

Before you go, Catherine has another Stamp of Approval collection coming July 18th!  You can start seeing sneak peeks of the products in the collection on Catherine's blog, You Tube channel, Face book and instagram.


Along with the Stamp of Approval collection, there is also a new ink color releasing the same day.  This new color, which is amazing, will be in the shop on July 18th.  I LOVE this color that goes perfectly with the Carnival Collection in the Party Line of ink.

The three days of blog hops start on Sunday, July 15th.  Hop along for inspiration using the new collection and comment to win the collection!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Get Well Soon

Hi everyone!  I hope everyone in the US had a safe and happy 4th of July yesterday.  I have another card to share with you all today using the Say it With Diamonds stamp set.


I LOVE how bright and vibrant Catherine's inks stamp on her Sand Dunes card stock, don't you?!!!  Amazing!  This is a very simple card that packs such a punch.  I added the white dots to the two images beside the sentiment with my white gel pen.


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Well Hello There

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope your summer is going well so far for those of you in the US.  This past weekend my oldest son got married!  It was an amazing day and we are so thankful for our new daughter.  I will share a picture at the end of my post.

I am sharing another card using the awesome Say it With Diamonds stamp set.  So many fun options with this set.


A pretty simple card that really packs a punch with the amazing stamps and pop of pink.  As usual, I am thinking of card sets to make using this card design and changing up the sentiments and colors.


I added some gems and some twine to finish off this card.  

AND the beautiful Bride and her Groom!
