Holiday Magic Stamp of Approval Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp of Approval Blog Hop.  Today myself and some of my favorite designers are sharing cards using the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection!  The Stamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of stamps, dies and accessories hand picked by Catherine Pooler.

The Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection will be released soon, very soon, TOMORROW in fact!!  By the looks of the Wait List, it's going to sell out quickly.  This is a limited collection that will only be available until they are sold out, so make sure that you are on the Wait List to be notified when it is available.  StampNation members that are on the Wait List will be notified first (a little perk of being a member!) then the rest of the Wait List will be contacted!

I've been creating with the SOA Holiday Magic Collection for the past couple of weeks.  I'm thrilled that I finally get to share my creations.


Here you are getting a peek at the Holiday Trimmings stamp set designed by Winnie & Walter and the Happy Holidays die designed by Neat & Tangled.  I started this card by trimming a piece of white card stock to 3 3/4 x 5.  Then I chose the adorable star banner from Holiday Trimmings and stamped it first in Versamark and then heat embossed it in Silver, then I did the same with gold.  The sentiment was die cut from Gold Glimmer Paper and adhered with liquid glue.  I added this panel to a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches piece of Steel Mill card stock and then added that to a white card base.  Lastly I added the sequins from the SOA holiday collection to the banners.

This is such a fun, easy card to make and send for the holidays.  Switch out the sentiment and it works for birthdays or anniversaries!

It's time to start hopping along now!

Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because one lucky commenter will win a Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection of their own.   The more times you comment, the more chances you will have of to win! (If the winner has already purchased a box, they will be refunded!)

You've got until Friday at noon EDT to get those comments in. The winner will be announced on Catherine Pooler's blog!  Good luck and happy hopping!
