Stamp of Approval Young At Heart Collection Blog Hop!




Hi everyone! I am so excited to be participating in a blog hop celebrating the release of the Stamp of Approval Young At Heart Collection.  Today myself and many of my favorite designers are sharing cards using the Holiday Magic collection.  The box goes up for sale tomorrow at 10am.  StampNation members get the sales link one hour earlier at 9am EST!

 **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 supplies!  Awesome!!

I have been creating with the Young At Heart Collection for a few weeks now and still haven't used all of the supplies in the box.  Here is one of the many cards I created.


The Ring in the Celebration stamp set is so much fun.  There are many different circle images/sentiments that all go together perfectly.  Here I masked off part of my card so that I would only stamp half of the circles, stamped and embossed then sponged distress inks in color mimicking a sun.  I then masked off the top portion and used the stencil with embossing paste on the bottom for some interest.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Young at Heart stamp set to finish off my card.

 **WIN a Stamp of Approval box.**

Make sure to leave a comment on each stop along the hop.  TWO lucky commenters will win a Stamp of Approval box.   The more times you comment, the more chances you will have to win!
