Stamp of Approval Beautiful World 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 Beautiful World Collection!  The Stamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of stamps, dies and accessories hand picked by Catherine Pooler.

The Stamp of Approval Beautiful World 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!

Today I'm sharing a card that features the Beautiful World stamp set designed by GinaK for the Stamp of Approval.  Also a sentiment from the All About You stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays.


Beautiful World contains several butterfly images, flourishes, a frame and sentiments.  It's the perfect set for feminine cards.  The gorgeous butterfly images look stunning colored, stamped and heat embossed.  Here I heat embossed the images and then sponged over them with Distress Ink.   I added flecks of water for some added interest to the background.  I wanted this piece really pop so I placed it on a black mat and a white card base.  Clean and simple perfection.

It's time to start hopping along now!

Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because TWO lucky commenters will win a Stamp of Approval Beautiful World 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 Thursday at 9:00AM EST to get those comments in. The winner will be announced on Catherine Pooler's blog!  Good luck and happy hopping!
