ADORING YOU STAMP OF APPROVAL BLOG HOP




Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Adoring You SOA Collection Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Ilina's blog.  The complete list is below if you get lost along the way.

The collection goes up for sale on January 9th 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!

If you’re new to Stamp of Approval – click here to check out everything you need to know about this exclusive collection of stamps, dies and other goodies. All these products were designed specifically for this collection; they are brand new, and while they will be made available at Catherine's store in the future, they won't be available there for many months.

My first card features a sentiment from Happy Together stamp set and a creative way to use the Adore Die.


I die cut the Adore die twice using white card stock. I trimmed off the top portion of the die on both pieces. I then rotated one of the die cut pieces and placed it over the other piece. This creates a fun plaid pattern. So cool, right?!!! I layered this onto a piece of black card stock to help it stand out.


I then stamped the sentiment once using Limoncello & Samba ink and then again using Midnight ink.  I used the coordinating die to cut them both out and then on the Midnight one I fussy cut the love out and glued it over top the colored sentiment.  Easy peasy!!!

My next card features the adorable birds from the Happy Together stamp set & the Love Note Background stamp.


I started my card by stamping the Love Note Background stamp onto my card base.  I only inked up one side of the stamp because I new I was going to be covering most of it.

I then stamped the branches, leaves, buds & sentiment onto my card piece.  I stamped and die cut the birds and mounted them onto the card front using dimensional adhesive.


I attached a small strip of black card stock to the stamped panel and adhered it to my card base.


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 Tracie Pond!
