Stamp of Approval Young At Heart Collection

Hi friends!
I am SO excited to be sharing one of my projects using the amazing goodies found in the Stamp of Approval Young At Heart Collection by Catherine Pooler

If you have never heard of Stamp of Approval, it is an exclusive collection, the products were designed FOR the box and most of the products won't be available until much later in 2016.  This next collection releases on February 3rd!!!

This collection is chock full of supplies that will have your creativity going off the charts.  I have been creating many projects using the stamps/dies included in the collection.

I started my card by masking off the two sides of the card base with post it tape.  I then sponged some distress inks onto the panel.  After sponging, I inked up the streamer stamp in the coordinating distress ink colors and stamped them down the panel.  Sprinkled some water on to get the water spots.  Removed the masks, stamped the sentiment (LOVE the font).  Die cut the balloons and stamped the bursts using a light gray ink.  Attached them with foam tape to add dimension.

Please visit these lovely ladies for more inspiration today.
 **Make sure and come back on Tuesday as I will be participating in a blog hop (there will be two boxes up for grabs) to celebrate the release of the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart Collection. **

  Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  16. Such a beautiful card. I love the bright sunny and happy colour and I love the water droplets. They just add something special to this lovely card and I love most of all that it uses those crepe paper streamers which is one of my two favorite stamps.
