You had me at ALOHA!


Hi everyone!  I'm popping in here today with another card using the new Stamp of Approval Tropically Yours Collection.  Have you grabbed yours?!  You have some time before they sell out so grab one HERE!!!

I found an image on Pinterest the other day and just had to create a card using the image as my inspiration.  I started by stamping some of the leaves from Leave me in Paradise in Fiesta Blue.  I then stamped the Hibiscus using Rockin' Red ink.  I love that you can see through the flowers to the leaves.



I then stamped the dots onto the background to fill in.  The sentiment was stamped using Midnight ink.  I really want to create this card using gray leaves and bright pink or coral flowers.  How pretty would that look?!



Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

TROPICALLY YOURS STAMP OF APPROVAL BLOG HOP - DAY 3



Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 3 of the Tropically Yours SOA Collection Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Tracie's blog.  The complete list is below if you get lost along the way.

The collection goes up for sale on July 18th at 9am to those on the Wait List.
Ordering will then be open of the public (6pm EST) if the collection hasn't sold out already.  

StampNation members that are on the Wait List will be notified first (a little perk of being a member!) and then the rest of the Wait List will be contacted!

**The box is only available while supplies last.**
Make sure that you are on the >> Wait List << to be notified when it is available!

The box contains products that can be used together to create many different cards.  They can also be used along with products you already have in your stash!  Awesome!!!  I have had a blast creating cards using this collection. 


The new ink color Coral Cabana is also available in the shop.  This color is so awesome and I used it on my first card today!

My first card features the Tropically Yours & Good Vibes stamp sets along with the Add-on dies for Tropically Yours.


I love these hibiscus flowers in this set.  So pretty.  I need to stamp them out in a bunch of different colors to have on hand and ready to go when I need to make a card.  The cross hatch border stamped along the bottom of my card is pretty awesome too!

My next card features the awesome Cabana Tiles dies & the sentiment from Tropically Yours.


 I die cut a bunch of the cool and unique hexagons out of black card stock and arranged them onto my card front.  After I had them arranged and glued down where I wanted them, I worked on my sentiment.  I used my Zig Clean Color Brush markers to color onto a piece of watercolor card stock.  I then spritzed with water to blend and waited for it to dry.  After dry, I stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink.  I popped that up with dimensional adhesive and added some black and white twine.


It's time now to start hopping along, BUT before you go, make sure you leave comments on each stop along the way for your chance to win!  Your next stop on the hop is Jen Carter!

One winner will be chosen at random from EACH day's comments and announced on Friday, July 20th on Catherine's blog.  3 random winners will be chosen to win a $100 Gift Certificate to the shop.

Kristie Goulet - You are here!
Jen Carter - Go here next!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

My card features the Good Vibes Borders stamp set, a sentiment from the Tropically Yours stamp set and the Add-on dies for the Fearless Pursuit stamp set.


I masked off the sides of my card and stamped the border using rainbow inks.  After removing the masking tape, I stamped the sentiment and added the die cut palm trees and some black and white twine.


Can you spot the Coral Cabana ink color on my card.  It fits perfectly in the Party Line of inks.  Available in the store on Wednesday.

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.

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.
