Catherine Pooler Designs Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Jan 2019

A big hello to all my friends celebrating the Adoring You Stamp of Approval release by blog hopping today. Daniel West here with a few cards to highlight the beauty and versatility of this incredible collection of goodies.

]Catherine Pooler Designs releases a Stamp of Approval collection every quarter. Past Stamp of Approval releases knocked my socks off!! The Adoring You Stamp of Approval box comes chock full of versatile, timeless and well-crafted items valued at over $100. It comes with new stamp sets put together just for this release. You will not find these sold separately for many months.

The Adoring You Stamp of Approval will have you making Valentine’s and love notes all year. All of the stamp sets coordinate to present endless opportunities for fun at your craft desk. I have a few examples to show you below and will have more over the next few days on my Instagram and Facebook accounts (so be sure to follow me there).

For my first example, I used the 6x6 Love Note Background Stamp and the Sweet Home Wreath Stamps. On some Catherine Pooler White Cardstock, I stamped the vine wreath image using Icing on the Cake. On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the vine wreath image using Icing on the Cake Ink. I stamped over that image with the coordinating leaf wreaths using Flirty Fuchsia Ink and Sweet Sixteen Ink. I really enjoy how Catherine Pooler Inks work together with such ease.

I used a machine to scan and cut out the image of the wreath and the sentiment. I popped them up on foam tape and mounted them on a panel I had stamped with the Love Note stamp using Sweet Sixteen ink. I added foam tape to the back of that panel, as well, and finished off the card with three fuchsia sequins.

For my second card, I felt like leaving wintry colors behind and heading for warmer climates. I went for some Tiki Torch, Samba, Suede Shoes, It's a Boy, Icing on the Cake Inks. I stamped the sentiment, Love You, using Icing on the Cake, in the bottom left of a card base. Then I covered the sentiment with Unicorn Magic embossing powder used a heat tool to melt the powder.

Then on I stamped the two love birds beak to beak using Tiki Torch ink for the background color and Samba for the detail stamp. I stamped the branch with Icing on the Cake, and the leaves with two blues: Suede Shoes and It’s a Boy inks. I ran these images through my Scan n Cut machine and set them aside.

Using an ink blending brush, I blended some Samba Ink onto the birds from the bottom up and around the edges. Then I adhered the birds and leaves onto the branch and popped them all up on foam tape.
