Welcome to Day 1 of the Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Blog Hop! This Collection is full of products that you can use to make cards for Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries and for other occasions throughout the year! And included in this collection is a NEW Mystery Ink that I've used in all my projects below!
You should have come from Karen's blog (full blog list below with details about how to win your Love is in the Air Stamp of ApprovalCollection!).
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.
If you are a StampNation member, you get access to order starting on Monday, January 8th at 10 pm. Not a StampNation member? Make sure you are on the wait list so you get access to the collection at 9 am Tuesday, January 9th before the public (at 6 pm). These collections always sell quickly (and often sell out!), so if you're liking what you're seeing on the blog hop, you'll want to ensure that you have an opportunity to get your hands on this collection!
Now, let's get on with my projects!
Sending Love Postcard
I used a number of stamps from 3 different sets to make a post-card full of love. The hand-lettered feel of the various sentiments really lends an authentic feel to it. The Postage Stamp Dies include a couple of stitched rectangles, and the smallest Postage Stamp die is (of course!) perfect as a stamp!
Stamps: Love is in the Air
Ink: Tiki Torch, Orange Twist, Tutti Frutti, Rockin Red, NEW Mystery Ink, Flirty Fuschia, Something Borrowed, Fiesta Blue, Aquatini, Lime Rickey, Melon Mist
Dies: Postage Stamp Dies, Love Die
Paper: Catherine Pooler White and Black
I used one edge of the largest Postage Stamp die to create a fun, bumpy border that these rainbow hearts nestle right into! These inks are so luscious and vibrant that I absolutely love using as many as I can to make a rainbow! I inlaid the love die.
Stamps: Bon Voyage
Ink: Tiki Torch, Party Dress, Flirty Fuschia, NEW Mystery Ink, Black Jack
Dies: Bon Voyage Accoutrement Dies (Add-on to SOA Collection), Postage Stamp Dies
Paper: Catherine Pooler White, Smoke and Mirrors
I used the little geo tag stamp and die to create a frame for the Love banner (which is designed to fit on the hot air balloon stamp included in the set).
Be sure to visit Catherine's blog to see all the products in detail.
