SOA Counting Blessings Blog Hop Day 2 & Giveaway


Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Counting Blessings Collection Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Laurel's blog.  The complete list is below if you get lost along the way.

The collection goes up for sale on Wednesday, August 16th at 9am to those on the Wait List and then ordering will be open to the public 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.

My first card features Thankful Die, Leaf Motifs, & Autumn Blessings stamp sets.


I used one of the leaf patterns to create some half blooms on the top and bottom of my card.  I die cut the thankful die from the white panel and glued it onto a piece of black card stock.  I stamped the sentiment around the thankful die cut and added some sparkly clear sequins to finish off my card.

My second card features Leaf Motifs & Good Things stamp sets.


I again used one of the leaf patterns on this card to create half blooms on the top and bottom of my card.  I then stamped the sentiment from Good Things in the center and the curly brackets on the top and bottom of the sentiment.  I added some black and white twine to finish off my one layer card.


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 Ardyth!

One winner will be chosen at random from EACH day's comments and announced on August 17th on Catherine's blog.  The winners will win their box and if you have already purchased it, you will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase.

Kristie Goulet - YOU ARE HERE
Ardyth - GO HERE NEXT

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  159. So smart to use the leaf stamps to create "blossoms". I also think it was really smart how you die cut the Thankful out of the white panel and then glue it on top of the black panel, rather than cutting it out of black and gluing it onto the white. Easier and I think creates a cleaner look!
