Stamp of Approval Blog Hop, Day 3!

Hello all, and welcome to the final stop on the The Stamp of Approval Counting Blessings Collection Blog Hop! Eeeep! Have you loved seeing all the projects! GOOD stuff! I always think this is a party in a box, delivered! And this collection is definitely my most favorite yet!! ❤

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

Are you ready for my cards?! I am! I really enjoyed playing with this collection! 🙂

Oh my word! THIS LEAF! ❤ ! For this card, I used several of the products in the box. The tag and scalloped panel are from the Tag, Etc. Dies. I die cut the Thankful die a few times and layered it up for some pop! The leaf is cut using the Falling Leaf dies. (I adhered them, and then stitched them like crazy! 😉 ) I used the Marching Leaves stencil on the background. (This stencil is definitely one of my favorite things in this box– ❤ !!!!)

I love this color combo that shook out during the process! 😉

Next up, is a celebration card showing the versatility of this collection! I think this color combo is so festive! ALL Catherine Pooler’s bold color inks are a stamper’s dream! Very inky, but not TOO inky. You know what I mean? 😉 Those can be found HERE.

For this card, I used the following products from this collection: The Tags, Etc. Dies, Good Things stamp set, and the Leaf Motifs stamp set.

I used my favorite CP color, Tutti Frutti, on many of my SOA projects this month! I can’t stop. 🙂  For this card, I also used the new gray Black Jack, Party Dress, Tiara and Fiesta Blue!

This collection is FULL of possibilities! I myself, am super loving all the graphic elements in it!

  1. Love both of these cards! Fantastic color scheme! I think you’re right about the stencil!! And I love the leafs and little leaf die! FABULOUS! The stitching on the tag is brilliant! Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your creativity and talents!

  2. Becca Yahrling says:

    I love the stitching you did on the 1st card. Such a lovely texture. I love the leaves in this kit, all so pretty.

  3. Patricia Benger says:

    Jill, love your color combinations! Different that all the fall colors and look great on the cards! Thanks for sharing your talents!

  4. Susan PJ says:

    Jill- talk about last but not least! This cards are both AWESOME!! The stitching on the first card… is so cool! What a great detail… and your blue/orange color scheme it’s like blue jeans and a pumpkin patch! The leaves card- I love both the colors and how much you offset the color blocking – so different and modern! Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Melody M. says:

    Wow is all I can say. I love your little touches like the stitching and how you wrapped the twine around the tag rather than just running it through. Great Cards!

  6. Akis Friend says:

    I really like your color choices. “Thankful” is not seasonal, is it! I sometimes get in a calendar rut and think only certain color choices are appropriate, but you have shown the additional colors that enhance the sincerity of a card. Thank you!

  7. Sarah Greber says:

    Loving your designs here! I like how the color combos turned out, too! I’m just wondering how long it took you to stitch those leaves!!! Turned out beautifully.

  8. Stef White says:

    Both cards are great, but the first one is my fav! I love the tag and scalloped dies, and I can’t say enough about those awesome leaves. Love the stitching too! Wonderful card!

  9. Barbara C says:

    Your cards are so stunning.I am in wow with them..Thank you for sharing these pretties..I am new to this ..Looks so fun this kit..

  10. Mary H. says:

    Jill: I love your cards but my favorite is the fall off-stamp colored leaves. I can’t wait to duplicate for the holidays!

  11. Kitty T says:

    The blue in your 1st card is gorgeous! Your 2nd card doesnt disappoint with the color either. I’ve not tried CP inks yet but I’m thinking now i might have to… the leaf images are solid and beautiful!

  12. Sharon Nesvog says:

    Hello Jill! Wow!! Your cards are beautiful!! I think my favorite one is the 1st one! I love the color combination you used…it’s different…but it works!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
