Stamp of Approval Blog Hop!

Happy Monday!! Today I have the fun opportunity to participate along with The Stamp of Approval Naturally Inspired Collection Blog Hop! What fun I’ve had working with this party in a box, delivered to my door!The Stamp of Approval Collection is an exclusive collection. These individual products were designed just for this collection box. Each product is a brand new design, and will not be available again from Catherine Pooler Designs for many months. Make sure you subscribe to the wait list to get first notice of the sales link…these collections sell out quickly! You can get on the waitlist here: WWW.CPSTAMPOFAPPROVAL.COM

The question for this hop is: What keeps you naturally inspired? My answer is pretty simple: COLOR! I love to mix up different and random color combinations. I find combinations of color randomly in catalogs, stores, advertisements, fashion, home decor, paper goods, in my scrap discard pile (most used source), etc. IΒ  find that the most unexpected color combinations are often the ones I like best. Of course, I also always trust a good rainbow color combo too, as I did below today! πŸ™‚ The rainbow will never fail us! πŸ™‚

On with the party! I mean, cards! πŸ˜‰

For these cards, I used the following from this collection: Wild Garden Stamp Set, Simply the Best Stamp Set, and the Best die. I also used all Catherine Pooler bold color inks. Those can be found HERE.

How festive is this Wild Garden stamp set?! It has Spring and Summer written all over it! I shocked and amazed myself that I had the forethought to create two of these cards (altering the sentiment) at the same time! I think that is a huge perk of this collection: The sentiments can be changed up so easily to make dozens of sayings! πŸ™‚

You’re the Best! I really ❀ the font style of this *best* die. It’s pretty awesome.

I die cut the word a few times and layered them up for pow! I then adhered the other heat embossed sentiments with foam adhesive.

I love all these ink colors together! ❀  The Catherine Pooler inks are all juicy and stamp well, with very little little effort. A huge win in my book. My favorite color is Tutti Frutti. It’s an awesome orange-red and it’s called Tutti Frutti for cryin’ out. πŸ™‚

I thought I’d share another rainbow inspired card, this time with more of a graphic take:

These sentiment stamps ROCK! Sending You Laughter! Perfect! πŸ™‚ And I know exactly who I am sending this one too! I used the same Catherine Pooler bold ink colors.

For this card, I again used the Simply the Best Stamp Set as well as the Birds of a Feather Stamp Set. This crosshatch stamp is great for stamp kissing techniques too!

Be sure to leave comments along the way for the BLOG HOP PRIZE!

One winner will be chosen at random from each day’s comments and announced on June 9 on Catherine Pooler’s blog. The winners will win their box and if they already bought it, they will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase.

    Love both. Clean simple floral that looks complicated. Love the over lap and colors of the textured background stamp.

    I think this is my first time on your blog, and I’m glad I stopped by. I like your first card and I love the second. So bright and just eye catching. I love the stitching and although I’m not sure how you did it, or how long it took you, it ads so much to the card. Thanks for continuing to inspire crafters like me!
