It's almost time for the next Stamp of Approval release! WOOHOO!
The Candy Cane Lane Collection releases on...
(to the Waitlist) & the 22nd to the general public!
If you haven't heard of the Stamp of Approval yet, you may be wondering what it is all about. My friend Catherine Pooler has been working with top companies in the stamp industry (CAS-ual Fridays, SugarPea Designs & Neat & Tangled etc) to develop an exclusive collection of versatile stamps and supplies that will work together or separately to create many unique cards. Along with the products in the box, you also receive a Project Guide giving you step-by-step instructions on how to create many, many cards using the collection.
Catherine has spent the past couple of days previewing some of the new products. Today kicks off the first of three days of blog hops before the big release on Wednesday. I'm not officially "on" today, but I've made a bunch of cards with the collection and I'm really excited to share them with you.
My card today features the Candy Cane Lane & the Peppermint Stick Background stamp sets.
How cute are these candy canes? I'm so in love with them. Actually, a while back when we started planning for the SOA holiday collection, I came up with the concept of patterned candy canes. It has been an amazing process seeing that idea come to life.
While I usually gravitate toward traditional color combinations for Christmas, I decided to go with something a little different on this card. The clean and graphic layout and black accents really make this design pop.
Head on over to Catherine's blog where you can participate in the blog hop. A box is being given away each day, so make sure you leave comments along the way.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card using the SOA Candy Candy Lane collection.
