I am sharing a couple more cards here to celebrate RELEASE DAY! Yay!!

How awesomely graphic is this Geo Trio stencil!! โค !! It has three different patterns to use on it! Catherine’s inks make blending this on flawless! I used Icing on the Cake, Tutti Frutti (fave!) Orange Twist , and Tiara for this.

I also used the collection’s Thankful die and the Tags, Etc. dies for this strip. I was intending to stitch above it, but ended up right on the line the die creates. I could never stitch this way if I intended too! But on a fluke, no problem! LOL!

Just love the graphic nature of this card and how those inks blend! So flawless! And can we just enjoy the handwritten script of this Thankful die? Good golly! So fantastic!


Next up is a ‘Thank You’ card!

I just trimmed the Thankful die to make a fun “Thank You” card! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used the Tags, Etc. Dies, Thankful Die, Autumn Blessings Stamp set, Geo Trio Stencil, and the Marching Leaves stencil!ย  Eeep! Again, I used Catherine’s fabulously blending inks! (Tutti Frutti and actually all the same ones as the above card! How did that happen? LOL!! ๐Ÿ™‚ )


I hope you’ve enjoyed the projects I made with this collection, as much as I have enjoyed making them!

Thank you again for stopping by today! A BIG crafty hug to Catherine for having me along, and many thanks to the team for help with details! It’s been a pleasure hanging with everyone! Be sure to check out Catherine’s Blog HERE for more fun!

I look forward to seeing what everyone creates with this fantastic collection!!

Happy creating!

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!! โค

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my word! THIS LEAF! โค ! 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I used the Marching Leaves stencil on the background. (This stencil is definitely one of my favorite things in this box– โค !!!!)

I love this color combo that shook out during the process! ๐Ÿ˜‰


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? ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย 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!
