Stamp Of Approval - Tropically Yours - Blog Hop Day 2

by - July 16, 2018


Hello there crafty people! Today is day 2 of the Tropically Your Stamp Of Approval Blog Hop. If you aren't familiar with how the Catherine Pooler Designs Stamp Of Approval Collection works, lets get you some details!

The SOA is an exclusive collection of stamps and dies that are only available together and as a collection. The items included in the collection will not be available for individual purchase in the online shop for many many months. One SOA collection is released every three months or so and once they're sold out they're gone. So you don't want to miss it! You must be on the wait list to get the link emailed to you! Sign up here
Be sure to comment on each stop along the hop for your chance to WIN your collection (or $100 GC to the shop if you've already purchased the collection)


The theme of this SOA collection is called "Tropically Yours". How perfect for summer! When the creative team received our collections, our jaws hit the floor. Each and every stamp and die included in this collection is incredibly illustrated and designed. Everything is so on trend and (per usual) is my favorite. 


As soon as I opened the box, these leaves and flamingos just jumped out at me. And that NEW ink color!? I DIE.  I love the design of it all and they shout tropical to me. I have been loving the large border on cards lately and I think it's a great way to mellow out a busy card or a scene card like the flamingo one here. Check out the video below for more tips like this!


I love when sets come with those little individual shape embellishment stamps. They're always so fun to make into DIY patterns. I decided to veer off the tropical theme for this card. Here I again used the "Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe" sentiment which I just looove, and used the little triangles and dot stamps to create a fun 90's vibe for the design of this card. Saved By The Bell, anyone?


Finally for today, I've used these Cabana Tiles Dies and I am head over heels for these! They are so incredibly versatile and on trend at the moment. I decided to use mine with some metallic card stock and create a full card front pattern. I love how simple yet busy it is!


I hope that you have enjoyed my portion of todays hop! Please don't forget to comment for your chance to win this SOA! Keep hopping along for more inspiration and chances to win!
