Wanna WIN the Next Stamp Approval Collection?

Hey everyone!  There’s lots of fun things going over at StampNation!
The Dream Team & our guest designers are hard at work getting the newest and most fabulous Stamp of Approval holiday box card creations ready for next month’s release.  Yup… it’s that time ALREADY!

What is Stamp of Approval you ask?   It's a box of specially curated stamps and dies that are designed to coordinated perfectly together that arrives in your mailbox.  It contains many, many hours of creative fun! When you purchase your box, you also receive a beautiful PDF document that contains all kinds of card designs for you to replicate!

Wanna WIN the next Stamp of Approval 
box before you can buy it???  

All you have to do is create a card using the previous SOA box contents, using the “Lovely Notes” collection and link it up on Catherine’s  blog right here.  All the rules are listed over on her blog as to how you can play along.

To showcase the box, I thought I’d share a brand new card using the “Lovely Notes” Collection just for you today!  This collection contains this pretty wreath image and lots of other cool images and sentiments (6 stamp sets and 2 die sets to be exact!)

So come and join me and create a brand new SOA card and share it with us!  You might just WIN that new box of goodies before anyone can even buy it!

Catherine Pooler will be opening her shop sometime towards the end of the month.  Inside the shop, she’ll not only be including some of the oldest Stamp of Approval kit contents (stamps, dies & stencils) but also some of her own stamp & die designs, other wise known as Catherine Pooler Designs.  Be sure to stay tuned for that announcement soon!

If you’d like to WIN one of the $25 gift certificates to Catherine’s shop, come and play along with the StampNation “Heat It Up” classes held all summer long and participate in them all!  Two winners will be chosen to WIN one of 2 gift certificates offered up as prizes for the class.  Come and play along to win!

Power Poppy: Nature & Nurture Collection Blog Hop

Today’s the day!  The Nature & Nurture Collection from Power Poppy is finally here! This collection consists of three clear stamp sets…

Each of these new clear stamp sets is packed full of detailed, gorgeous images and verb-acious sentiments!  Each one of these stamp collections is now available in the Power Poppy Shop!

For my final card, I wanted so badly to go back and create with the gorgeous new wheat image so I took it and paired it up with the lovely Coneflower also included in this same stamp set.  Doesn’t it just stay “Fall” to you?!?
Derwent Pencils: 0200, 0240, 0300, 0400, 0600, 0700, 1310, 1320, 1400, 1530 

I played around with my Derwent Inktense Pencils and some watercolour paper for my card front.  I really wanted the texture of the paper play with my pencils so I only added a small amount of additional texture using an embossed piece of water colour paper to the edge.

Now come and check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has been up to using these glorious new stamp sets…

Introducing… Feeling Fall!

Welly, welly, well... what do we have here? It’s three sweet vignettes with pumpkin, maple, and a plucky plaid! Meant to get that fall vibe kickin’ on your craft table, you'll find fun sentiments plus: a stack of decorated pumpkins and a mysterious black cat; a trio of gourds, fall berries, and what has GOT to be a pumpkin spice latte; and stylish plaid wellies perfect for a day of raking the leaves of that gorgeous Maple tree. 

I just ADORE the sweet little stack of pumpkins and the darling little black cat peeking from behind them so I chose to highlight them with a full moon back drop!

I used Copics to colour in everything here.  I using a simple white gel pen to add the stars over top of my dark blue sky.

A little shimmery moon never hurt anyone…

Now come and check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has been up to using this glorious new fall inspired stamp set…
