Stamp of Approval Blog Hop...

CCL_BlogHop

Hello there!  I am so excited to be hopping along with the ladies over at Stamp of Approval.  IF you don't know what Stamp of Approval is....


Stamp of Approval is a hand picked, exclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box (the boxes are adorable by the way) that releases quarterly. The products from this collection won’t be available for individual sale until much later this year! The first box released last year and sold out within hours, so be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed when the collection goes on sale to the WL on September 21st! Not only do you get a box FULL of amazing stamps and dies, but you’ll get a downloadable PDF Project Guide (for free!) with tons of project tutorials using them!

The newest Collection is called Candy Cane Lane and it is beautiful!  Here are 2 samples I have made, using products from the box.

For this first card, I stamped the Peppermint Stick Background for the card base.  I took the sentiment  from Hip Holiday and stamped it in black ink and then took the images from Merry and Bright Boughs and created a fun design.  I popped this card front up on fun foam, leaving a little of the peppermint stick background showing.

This next card would be super simple to mass produce for the holidays....

I used the Peppermint Stick Background on the card base again.  I matted it with a white sheet of card stock to leave about 1/4" of the background showing.  Next, I used that gorgeous embossing die and the sentiment and images from Merry and Bright Boughs, and created a fun panel for the card front.
