Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day #3

CatherineCP Designs, Encouragement, Stamp of Approval

Welcome to the third and final day of Blog Hops celebrating the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection!   What incredible inspiration we’ve had over the past few days.

If you are new to Stamp of Approval Collections—

We design a collection of products that come in one fabulous box and provide a free Project Guide download with step-by-step instructions for dozens of hand made cards using the collection!  We talked about the concept and gave a behind the scenes look at this collection on this YOUTUBE LIVE.

Our very first collection premiered August 6, 2015 and was such a huge hit!  We sold out in 1 hour and 1 minute….  Then we oversold, panicked, then made a plan and everyone was happy in the end. We’ve grown a lot since then and it’s been an amazing ride!

Each quarter, people from around the globe tell me what a difference Stamp of Approval makes for them.  To some it might just be a box of stamps.  But to others, it’s a creative outlet.  It’s a way to gather with friends and bond.  It’s the perfect way to send messages of love to friends and family.

To this community, it also bring us together.  SOA fans are like kids on Christmas morning (me included!!!) and as an adult, it’s not often that we get to feel like that!  And how much fun is it to share in that TOGETHER?

Thank you for sharing in this amazing paper crafting ride with me…you all make it SO MUCH FUN!

I have a few projects today, then watch for us on Facebook and Youtube (like my page, subscribe and turn on notifications).  I'm sure we'll pop on and do some stamping!

I LOVE the background on this card.  I stamped the Canvas Grunge Background stamp, then sponged Tiara ink over it.  I love this textured look!

Then I die cut the palm trees and coconuts, cut them out and mounted them on a card layer along with the greeting and the sun.

The next card has a great layered look with the sentiment in black on a white layer, then popped up on top of a layer that is 1/8″ larger.  I tucked the stamped images in between and under the layers.

The tropical leaves were stamped in bright fun colors from our Party Collection of ink.  I love the rainbow look!  It's unexpected and fun.

The inspiration doesn't stop here…TONIGHT is our PJ Release Party at StampNation and we are scurrying around the office getting ready.  

Our Live Streams are always a ton of fun.  We’ll chat, give you a peek behind-the-scenes, answer questions, have some trivia (and prizes!), stamp and send StampNation Members the super-secret early ordering link.
