Sending Love


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  I have another fun card to share with you using the goodies from the Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air collection.  I have started seeing some gorgeous cards popping up all over social media with the collection.  That is my favorite part-seeing what you all create!

This card uses the awesome arrow stamp in the Love is in the Air stamp set.  I definitely used my MISTI to get them lined up perfectly.  I love how this turned out.

I am going to add this over at CAS on Friday!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Release Day!


Hi everyone!  It's Release Day for the SOA Love is in the Air collection!

I have another card to share with you today using goodies from the collection!

This card features the amazing The World Awaits, Happiness Enclosed & Bon Voyage stamp sets!


I stamped and clear heat embossed the world images onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I then colored in the areas using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  I just love how bright these are and how well they blend on this watercolor paper.  I added a white heat embossed sentiment and some black and white twine to finish off this pretty simple card!

I wanna talk about the envelope too!  The Happiness Enclosed stamp set is perfect for adding special little touches to your envelopes!  This stamp says "Made especially for you, so I know you are going to love it".  I love the heart that you can stamp on the inside of the sentiment too!  This is definitely a must have in your stamp room!

Have you seen the new blocks Catherine came out with?  This rectangle block is a game changer for me, it's so perfect for many of the long border stamps Catherine has in her collections.  Check it out!!!


This block measures 2 1/2 x 6 1/8"

Why do I love them?
  • the indentations are the perfect for tor your fingertips
  • the etched gridline helps you to line up your stamps
  • sized to fit the most commonly used stamp sizes
  • lightweight for their size

These blocks are perfection in my book!!!  Catherine also has a NEW ROUND BLOCK that is just as amazing.  You can find all the blocks in the links below.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards using this amazing collection.  I look forward to seeing the many creations popping up all over Blog land when you all receive your collections.  That is my favorite part!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Sending Love - Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air Release Day

Hi everyone!  Today's the day-It's release day for the Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air collection for those on the Wait List.  Hope you got your name on the list, these collections sell out quickly!!!  If you are not on the Wait List and the collection doesn't sell out, ordering will open to the public tonight at 6pm.

I have another card to share with you all today using the Postage Stamp dies, Bon Voyage Stamp set & Accoutrements dies.


I started my card by die cutting the stitched rectangle panel from Kraft card stock and the postage stamp layer in white.  I stamped and white heat embossed the compass and sentiment.  I attached these to a kraft card base.

To add a pop of red, I used the direct to paper technique to color my white card stock red using Rockin' Red ink.  I then die cut this fun burst with a heart in the center and attached it to the center of the compass.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards using this amazing collection.  I look forward to seeing the many creations popping up all over Blog land when you all receive your collections.  That is my favorite part!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

I have a couple more cards to share with you today using the Love is in the Air stamp set and the Add on coordinating die set!


I was inspired to make some birthday cards, pulling a sentiment stamp from the previous Stamp of Approval Young at Heart release.  I think it goes perfectly with this hot air balloon, what do you think?!!!


I created 4 cards while I had my supplies out.  Trying to build up my birthday card stash!

I was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.


And another similar card, but I added a bit of interest by cutting down the top layer and adding a stamped border to the side.  This one uses a sentiment from the collection!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Love forever...

Hi everyone!  
You can check out Day 1>>>HERE<<<

I am not officially part of the blog hop for today, but I have more cards to share with you all.

My first card features the Love die, the Happiness Enclosed Stamp set & the forever sentiment from the Love is in the Air Stamp set.


I had some comments left yesterday on my blog post about how I get my stamping in a straight line, I definitely use my MISTI for that.  That is how I got these hearts lined up perfectly.

After stamping the hearts, I filled in with one of the tiny hearts from the Love is in the Air stamp set.  I die cut the Love die from silver glimmer paper and black card stock to add a shadow behind the silver paper.

I just love the stamps that you can use to coordinate your envelopes.  So fun!

My next card features The World Awaits Stamp Set & the Postage Stamp dies.


I love using the emboss resist technique with The World Awaits stamp set.  I used the party inks in rainbow colors and some masking to create the rays.  

I created a frame to place around the edge of my card with the Postage Stamp dies.  I know I will find myself reaching for these dies again and again for many cards.  

The love banner in black & the black and white twine finish off my card.  Another coordinating envelope ready to be mailed.  :)

Make sure you start today's hop over on Catherine's blog>>>HERE<<<and if you missed Day 1 you can start>>>HERE<<<!  Remember to comment on each stop along the hop for your chance to win the collection.
